Chef Victorious in Manics Pool Tourney
five months of waiting the Manics pool tournament came to an end! There
were some big name's touting themselves for the tournament, a few of which
were Jimmy ping, Brian Judge, Sol Weasel and even Jimbo, but surprisingly
they were knocked out in the early stages. There were other players who
also touted themselves on the table of balls, but they came unstuck to
the eventual finalists Gate's and Chef.
The final was played at the Bridge public house, known well for its well
kept pool tables, the final itself was to be ajudicated by the big south
african Jason Graff, decided by the best of seven games.
Gates won the toss and broke in the first. It was a very tight game and
some easy shots were missed by both players. You could definately see
there were some nerves, but Chef went on to clear up taking the first
The second game was a different affair, Chef broke and Gates came to the
table confidently potting most of his balls, but one mistake and the Chef
was let in. Chef potted all his balls just leaving the black, but Chef
missed and Gate's was back in he potted his last colour and was left with
a fairly easy black. Sadly Gates rattled it and left it over the pocket
for the chef to take the second game.
That game did nothing for Gate's confidence but wonders for Chef's! He
took command of the third game and won it convincingly taking it to 3-0.
The fourth game and Gate's had to win this game and the rest to win the
tournament. Gates broke potting nothing, Chef came to the table potted,
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 of his balls just leaving the black, the possible
seven ball was on, and Chef went for a long double, but missed leaving
the black hanging over the middle pocket, all gates had to do now was
Gates started off well and looked like he had regained some confidence,
but it wasn't to be, once again Gates rattled a game winning shot and
left a very easy black for Chef. Gates knew it was an off day and put
the black ball down himself, crowning Chef the Manics 2006 pool tournament
Commiserations to Gates congratulations to Chef!
Next year could be an interesting year in the pool tournament, with the
likes of twice tournament winner Fish coming back and also the likes of
one certain known Loverat and maybe even the return of the Giblet, who
knows you'll just have to wait and see or better still take part!!!
Pool Tourney Champion - Chef!
was a good day for me, congrats to Gates on the arrival of his beautiful
baby boy, well done mate!"
