Advani clinches World Billiards title, bags 3 Grand Doubles

Leeds, Oct 30:

India’s most celebrated cueist Pankaj Advani clinched the World Billiards Championship (time format) title to bag a record 12th world crown and also complete a rare ‘Grand Double’ post his third win in both the long and short formats in the same year.
Bangalore’s ‘Golden Boy’ set the green baize on fire as he humbled England’s rising star Robert Hall 1928-893 in a one-sided contest to hand his mother, Kajal, a perfect birthday gift on Wednesday. He had won the 150-up format last week after defeating Peter Gilchrist.
Hall, who had got past Advani’s citymate Balachandra Bhaskar in the semi-finals, could not stand up to the Indian ace and the Englishman’s maiden final appearance ended on a disappointing note. (PTI)
