Pro-Am Snooker - 2015 PMK Invitational 

2nd-3rd May 2015 - Minnesota Fats Club, Glasgow, Scotland


        McGILL TAKES PMK INVITATIONAL
 

Anthony McGill continued his great form with victory at the PMK Invitational Pro-Am competition. 

The 16 man event was held at the Minnesota Fats Club in Glasgow and boasted an impressive line-up including 4 times World Champion John Higgins.

But it was new sensation McGill - fresh from his last 8 run at the Crucible a few days previously, who would reach the final after dropping just 2 frames.

Yet he perhaps saved his best performance to last after falling 3-0 behind to fellow Scot Michael Leslie in the best of 7 frames final.

With breaks of 73 and 65, he showed his battling qualities to deny his Bonnyrigg opponent in taking the match 4-3.

The six amateurs in the event all received a 14 point per frame advantage, but all perished at the first hurdle.

Higgins, who only a week earlier was losing to Ding Junhui in the second round at the Crucible, also fell in his opening assignment to experienced Englishman Peter Lines.
