MOHD Haikal Qarin bin Haji Haironi Hamizin bettered his result from the previous year after winning the 2nd HH 9-Ball Tournament 2018 at the Master Alim Pool Café in Kiulap recently.
The cueist made all the way to the final last year and after the disappointment of missing out on the title, it was his turn this time around to be in the winner circle following a 7-4 win over Md Khalid bin Abu Bakar.
Last year’s champion Haji Mohd Khairuddin was stopped in his tracks following a 7-4 defeat to Mohd Khalid in the semi-final while Mohd Haikal Qarin breezed to a 7-3 win over Mansyor Syuwari to advance to the title decider.
The top eight of the competition also included Mansyor Hazwan, Mohd Izzat Hanawi, Mahmood Abdullah and Pengiran Mohd Faiq.
The competition, which attracted a total of 34 participants, involved a qualifying round which is played in a double knockout system while the final round is played in a single knockout.
Pengiran Mohd Faiq Hafizuddin bin Pengiran Haji Jalaludin, Manager of Master Alim Pool Café, presented the prizes.
