2006 Belfast 9-Ball Open Pool Championships Results

Mc Laughlin Claims Another Official Ranking Tournament


Paddy Mc Laughlin (Down) won yet another deserved official ranking tournament and claimed his number one spot back on Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Pool at the weekend past defeating the tours inform player Stephen Johnson (Antrim) in another classic final to claim the 2006 Belfast Open 9-Ball Event.

With Paddy travelling a lot lately to overseas tournaments mostly in England and Scotland and also to a good few in Europe has brought his game up to another level which I have no doubt will be challenging some of Europe’s and the Worlds best players in years to come, and not forgetting the high standards he is already setting for the rest of the Irish tour come the new 2007 playing season.

Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour brought its very first ranking event to the Club-9 venue where the playing conditions was first class where the tournament was played to a very high standard throughout the day with a few major shocks along the way, no more so than the current 2006 All Ireland 9-Ball Champion Sam Gibson not coming out of his group which was played in a round robin format.

It was the ever improving and inform Stephen Johnson who knocked out the tournaments number one seed Paul Bonner in the ¼-finals on a 7-2 score-line but it was the “ GINGER MAGICIAN ” once again who showed the rest of the field and all the tour that if they want to catch the Ginger Magician they must start putting in a lot more practise sessions before the new 2007 playing season cues off.

Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam, Joe (senior) and Joe (junior) and all there staff and playing members at Club-9 for all there hospitality in making everyone very welcome at the 2006 Belfast Open 9-Ball Event.
