English Billiards - 2016 LiteTask British Open
3rd & 4th December 2016 / Cue Gardens, Bradford, England
CAUSIER IS BRITISH OPEN BEST
Dave Causier immediately bounced back from his disappointment of losing the Long Format World Championship a few weeks ago by successfully defending the LiteTask British Open title in Bradford last weekend.
A field of 40 players began this Level 3 World Billiards event at Cue Gardens. Causier coasted through his Round Robin group, winning all four matches and not allowing any opponent to reach triple figures.
In the Knockout portion of the tournament he beat Bernard French 1323-143 in the Last 16, Ryan Mears 663-371 in the Quarter-Finals and then Phil Mumford 718-402 in the Semis.
He was sternly tested in the Final by the also unbeaten Robin Wilson, but emerged a 577-512 victor.
Causier pockets the £640 winner's purse and an additional £40 for the highest break of 619 he made against French.
