Oldest, Youngest, Longest, First

Robbie Ganson, in his seventies took on Marc Fridman, 15 going on 16, in a first round match at this year's Australian National Championships.

It started at 2 p.m. on Friday, as did all the other 1st. round matches, but they were long over by the time this one finished, well past 8 p.m. with Robbie the eventual winner by four frames to three.

Two matches of best of seven frames were played on each of the 8 tables in the magnificent room at the R.A.C.V. with conditions as perfect as they could be for this most prestigious of tournaments.

A long and tiring day for all concerned eventuated on Saturday but worthy of the effort both for the administrators, referees and the players who were witness to some very high class snooker. Steve Misfud (twice), Aaron Mahoney and Shaun Dalitz all managing to pass the century mark in individual breaks. There were also 29 other 50+ breaks made during the weekend. All in all performances that matched the occasion.

The final matches for the day were the quarter finals which produced the match ups of James Mifsud vs. Adrian Ridley, won by Adrian 4 - 1, with breaks of 59 and 52 to James and a 63 by Adrian.

Steve Ebejer took on Ryan Thomerson and recorded a 4 - 2 victory with breaks of 64 and 59 to Ryan and a 42 from Steve.

The 3rd quarter was between Aaron Mahoney and Shaun Dalitz with a very speedy Aaron potting almost disdainfully and recording breaks of 105 and 63 in his 4 - 2 win and Shaun also showing his class when he got the opportunity, joining Aaron in recording a century in this match, 101 in the 5th frame.

The last match of the day was between Steve Mifsud and West Australian Ben Judge. Steve running out the winner 4 - 2 and recording a break of over 40 in every one of his winning frames.

The best of 9 semi finals and the best of 11 final were held on Sunday. Aaron Mahoney took on Steve Mifsud and Adrian Ridley played Steve Ebejer.

Aaron continued his fast playing style from the previous day which worked to perfection in the first two frames but Steve Mifdsud is one who is never phased by such experiences and held his nerve and his game to catch and then overhaul Aaron with a 5 frame unbroken run to see him into the final and a chance to become the all time record holder for National Title victories.

The other semi was a little bit of a procession with Adrian on fire and playing the kind of snooker that saw him with a wild card entry into the Goldfields Open three years ago. Steve, having also played some of the best snooker of his career in this tournament, could not keep that going in the face of some spectacular play by Adrian with the match finishing 5 - 0.

The final, overseen by referee Praveen Chandra taking on the National Title showpiece for the frist time, was worthy of both of these luminaries of Victorian snooker. Steve Mifsud not quite finding the form that won him a world championsip, is nevertheless a formidable opponent and Adrian finding that his form, in his words, was fluctuating in each frame between being capable of century breaks to not being able to string three pots together. In the end there was nobody who could deny that his good form overcame his bad and that he is a deserving winner of his first Australian National Championship, dedicated in his victory speech to his recently deceased aunt.

Congratulations ADRIAN RIDLEY. 2017 Australian Snooker Champion by 6 frames to 3.
