Pankaj Advani wins 9th world title




Pankaj Advani has made winning a habit. At 28, the poster boy of the Indian cue sport has already won nine world titles — seven in billiards and two in snooker.

A resounding 6-1 win over Poland’s Kacper Flilpiak in the IBSF World 6-Red snooker Championship on Sunday earned him his ninth world title — most by any Indian cueist in the Open category — at Sharm el-Sheikh, the Egyptian island.

The final lasted barely an hour, proving Advani’s prowess yet again in both snooker and billiards. He has won both World snooker titles on debut — the IBSF World Championship, China (2003), and this year’s IBSF 6-Red World Championship.

“This is a dream. I wasn’t expecting anything from this championship. For the last two months I’ve been playing quite a bit of billiards, so to come into a world snooker championship and win it is simply unreal. At this point I’m just thrilled to be able to play quality snooker,” said Advani after his win.
