VERSATILE GILCHRIST WINS SINGAPOREAN TITLE
Peter Gilchrist, a multiple time World Champion in the English Billiards discipline, showed his Cuesports nous by winning the 2018 Singapore National Snooker Championship.
Played over several weeks, the English born but Singaporean resident made his way through the competition. He won his Last 32, Quarter and Semi Final matches 4-0, but he did have to survive a deciding frame finish against Lam Tuck Weng Danny in the Last 16.
During his Last 4 victory over Jaden Ong Jia Jun he crafted a run of 127, which would eventually secure him an additional $600 bonus for being the tournament's highest break.
Gilchrist's opponent in the final at the Cuesports Singapore Academy was Marvin Lim Chun Kiat, who you may remember was awarded a wildcard into the World Professional Championship Qualifiers earlier in the Spring. In a relatively close match, Gilchrist prevailed 4-2 to claim the title, trophy and $2,000.
