Pankaj Advani finishes on a high, claims top position

On
this
day
in
2003:
India
found
its
Youngest
World
National
Champion

Pankaj
Advani

The
36-year-old
Pankaj,
who
had
won
the
World
and
Asian
snooker
crown
multiple
times,
maintained
his
excellent
form
and
succeeded
in
winning
all
12
matches
(6
each
in
the
Y-Camp
and
Z-Camp).

Pankaj
accumulated
10,760
points
(3,560
National
points,
3,600
points
each
from
Y
and
Z
Camps)
to
take
pole
position,
a
media
release
issued
here
said
on
Monday.

National
champion
Aditya
Mehta,
who
finished
with
4
wins
and
2
defeats,
was
placed
second
with
10,156
points
(4000
Nationals,
2916
Y-Camp
and
3240
Z-Camp)
while
in
third
place
was
Laxman
Rawat
(PSPB)
with
9,396
points.

Both
Pankaj
and
Aditya
have
qualified
to
represent
India
in
the
upcoming
World
Snooker
Championship,
which
is
likely
to
be
held
in
Doha
in
November
or
December.

“I’m
thrilled
to
qualify
as
India
no
1
and
represent
the
country
at
the
IBSF
World
Snooker
Championships
in
Doha.
I
am
honoured
to
be
wearing
the
Tricolour
and
getting
back
on
the
green
baize
once
again
for
the
mega
event
to
be
held
in
Doha,”
Pankaj
said.

According
to
Pankaj,
who
has
been
a
world
champion
multiple
times,
representing
India
is
always
special.
“Representing
India
at
the
IBSF
World
Snooker
Championships
tournament
has
always
had
a
special
place
in
my
heart
as
on
this
day,
October
25,
2021,
18
years
ago
in
2003
as
an
18-year-old,
I
lifted
my
first
ever
world
title
in
China,
the
coveted
prize

the
IBSF
World
Snooker
Championship
for
India.”

Pankaj
asserted
his
dominance
over
India
number
1
Aditya
by
recording
a
4-1
win
against
the
lanky
Mumbai-based
cueist
in
the
concluding
round
Z-Camp
match.
Pankaj,
who
had
also
won
the
previous
outing
4-1,
played
steadily.
He
managed
to
dictate
terms
before
going
on
to
wrap
up
the
match
80(63)-08,
32-70,
70-00,
86-15
and
68-49.

Pankaj
had
earlier
quashed
the
challenge
from
Laxman
Rawat
by
pulling
through
in
six
frames
in
an
interesting
contest.
He
started
with
a
bang,
rolling
in
a
neat
139
points
break
in
the
first
frame
and
completed
a
deserving
139-00,
22-61,
84-46,
93-07,
28-74
60-31
victory.

Earlier,
Aditya
scrapped
past
Laxman
by
a
tight
4-3
margin
to
snatch
a
crucial
fifth
win.
