By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, May 23: India�s ace cueist Pankaj Advani created history in Abu Dhabi by clinching the Asian 6-Red Snooker title.

Advani thus became the first in the world to hold both world and continental titles in 6-red snooker at the same time, according to information received here.

The double IBSF World Six-Red Snooker Champion stamped his authority again in the short format of the game, defeating top seeded Malaysian Keen Hoh Moh 7-5 last night.

Advani won the final in a battle of fluctuating fortunes by keeping his nerves intact.

With a confidence boosting 6-1 semifinal victory against compatriot Aditya Mehta to book his spot in the finals and coming closer to winning his first continental title, Advani clearly walked to the table with the utmost poise winning the first frame 39-4.

With a loss of the second frame, 6-51 to the Malaysian who scored a break of 51, Advani won the third frame 40-14 before losing the fourth frame, 37-0.

The fifth and sixth frame belonged solely to the 30-year-old Advani who cleared the table 41-7 and 44-8 respectively.

With the Indian ace leading the match 4-2 at the end of six frames, Keen Hoh Moh fought back by winning the seventh frame, 38-21 only to lose the eight frame 24-45 with Advani securing a 45 break.

By the ninth frame, the match was extremely close with Advani leading the Malaysian by a single frame and extended that lead to a difference of two frames by winning the 10th frame, 45-36.

The Malaysian narrowed the lead by winning the 11th frame 38-15 before Advani won the next 53-24 to claim the title. � PTI
