Arena Billiards 10 Ball Open Report - 30 April 2016
Report by Keith Walkerdine
Photography by Ash Sibson

On Saturday 30 April Arena Billiards hosted its first 10 ball open. Interest was high for the tournament but due to some players unable to attend we had 28 paid entries. On the day two players could not make it so we were down to 26. The format for the day was double elimination up to the quarter finals, with four players from the main/winners side and four from the losers side to battle it out in the knockout final eight. It was race to 8 on the winners side and a race to 6on the losers side and winner breaks throughout.

Were now down to the knockout stage and the last eight players. This was a race to 9 winner breaks.

Up first in the quarter final was Al Coton taking on Ashik Nathwani. The first four racks were shared. Al then won four racks in a row to lead 6-2. Ashik then won two of the next three racks to trail 7-4. Al though took the next two racks and the game 8-4. Adam Clarke took a 3-0 lead against Elliott Sanderson.

The next rack and the game was won 8-7 by Elliott. Kev Simpson took a 3-0 lead over Kris Kovacs. Kris Pulled a rack but Kev added the next three to lead 6-1. Kris pulled another back but Kev was to strong in this match and took the next three racks to win 9-2. Dave Evans took a 4-0 lead against Stewart Colclough. Stewart pulled one back but Dave furthered his lead with the next two racks to lead 6-1. Stewart then rallied and won the next five racks to level the game. Dave won the next rack but Stewart took the following two to go on the hill at 8-7. Dave pulled it back to 8-8 to send the game to a deciding rack. The rack and game was won 9-8 and it went in favour of Stewart.

We were now on to the semi finals and all four players were yet to lose a game on the day. Up first was Kev Simpson taking on Elliott Sanderson. Kev took the first two racks but Elliott hit back with two of his own to level it up. The next six racks when back and forth with both players taking three racks to leave the score at 5-5. Elliott took the next two racks to lead 7-5 but Kev hot straight back with two racks in row to level at 7-7. The next two were then taken by the same player and so was the game 9-7 as Elliott came on top on this occasion. In the second semi final Stewart Colclough took on Al Coton. Stewart took an early lead 2-0. Al hit back with rack before the following four racks were shared to leave the score at 4-3 to Stewart. Stewart then took the next five racks and the match 9-3.
So it was the final time and only two players left not to have lost a game on the day with Stewart and Elliott. The first two racks were shared. Stewart then kicked on and took the next four racks to lead 5-1. Elliott rallied with two racks to pull it back to within two at 5-3. Stewart though was not to be defeated today and took the next four racks to take the match 9-3 and to win the tournament.

I would like to wish Stewart a big congratulations on winning the tournament and also to Elliott on making the final.

Thank you to all the players that travelled and attended on the day. Also a big thanks to the Arena staff for making it a great day of pool for us all. More tournaments are to come and keep your eye out for further details in due course.
