Imran Majid with a brace of trophies from the GB9 Midlands Classic.

Majid wins first GB9 Pro Cup AND GB9 Main Tournament at Midlands Classic

This was a very successful and profitable weekend for Londoner Imran Majid as he eventually scooped up both of the winner's trophies for the two events he entered, along with the winner's cheques too.

A small hours win over Phil Burford in the final of GB9 Pro Cup event gave him his first trophy, but he said he was most proud of his main event trophy as this was achieved after a tough day on Saturday. Amongst the players in the 128 man high-quality field was the UK's new World Champion Daryl Peach, along with Euro Tour champions, and several Mosconi Cup players.

As usual Pro9 was there reporting all the news from the event with articles and prompt results as well as photographs from Solihull - thanks to all the people who came to say hello to us on The Pro Shop stand.

Majid wins first GB9 Pro Cup at GB9 Midlands Classic

Imran Majid looked relaxed and in control in the final as he led all the way to the one-sided 11-4 victory, but the story is really just as much about his young opponent. Phil Burford was probably a bit disappointed with the eventual result after making such an heroic dash through the toughest draw imaginable, a feat requiring wins over World Pool Champion Daryl Peach AND WPC Semi-Finalist Karl Boyes along the way.
