2019 Victorian Women’s Billiards Championship

Congratulations to Anna Lynch - 2019 Victorian Women’s Billiards Champion. Yet another billiards title for the formidable Anna. Today’s Championship was played at Reventon Academy Yarraville and it was a tight battle with Anna, Caroline Ruscitti and Shelly Ames all finishing the round robin with 4 wins each. Despite having a win over Anna, Shelly lost out on percentage. Well done to Caroline on making the grand final. Although she is the current Victorian Women’s Snooker title holder this was her first ever billiards competition and she also made a 47 break. Thanks to all the women who participated, I think it’s fair to say everyone had an enjoyable day and all games were played in good spirits.

Vic Snooker Championship

James Mifsud is the 2019 VIC Snooker Champion

 

 

A field of 50 descended upon the Yarraville Club for the 2019 VIC Snooker Championship

Along the way there were many breaks and a few epic closely fought battles.

We got to the last 8 on Sunday with

  • James Mifsud v Rudy Sulaeman 
  • Adrian Ridley v Josh Gorski
  • Ben Foster v Kurt Dunham
  • Paul Thomerson v Steve Mifsud

The first semi final saw battle between James Mifsud and Josh Gorski. Josh forced James all the way after taking a 3-2 lead but James was able to win the last 2

The second semi final was between Kurt Dunham and Steve Mifsud and Steve was able to take victory 4-1

The final did not disappoint. It turned out to be a like a heavyweight boxing match. Each player winning a frame only to be countered by the opponent replying in kind. After 6 frames they still could not be split. At that point James was able to secure his 2nd win of the season by taking the 7th and 8th frames.

 

Congratulations to all who took part, we enjoyed the event and hope you did too and we look forward to seeing you again.

World Junior Snooker Championships

Marc Fridman, winner of the 2019 Australian U21 Billiards Championship (see picture), has been selected by the ABSC to represent Australia at the World Junior Snooker Championship in China in July 2019. China is also an affiliate of Q School.

Marc says "Attending the World Championship will help me with my aspiring goal to become a professional Snooker player, as I'll be playing the top players from throughout the world, challenging them and learning from them, and hopefully have a win.

Attending the Championships will also help me become wider known throughout the snooker community, where I'll be able to meet new people and make new friends who will not only help me grow in snooker but also grow as a more confident person.

At the championships there will also be world professional snooker coaches who I'll be able to get help from to improve my skills and who will teach me things I can take back home and practice and work on and can pass the things I have been shown to other aspiring snooker players. With this knowledge, I will also assist at the 2019 Victorian and Australian U18 titles  and help grow this sport, as I see the pleasure my Dad gets from helping the juniors and want to be part of that in the future."

Marc requires substantial funding to cover expenses so any help would be appreciated, acknowledged and is fully tax deductable.  Please contact his Dad, Tony, on 0414 534 575 if you can help.
