The final on Sept. 28 saw Viriya Khamdeeton from the Mecure Hotel take on Surachet Thongjit from the Avani over the best of 7 frames of pool.  The two battled ferociously without either wanting to concede any advantage but eventually Viriya held his nerve best and his potting skills saw him emerge as a 5-2 winner.

The new champion took home 8,000 baht in prize money while second placed Surachet received 5,000 baht.

Taking third place in the competition was Nikom Wong­siri of the Pinnacle Jomtien who defeated Pattaya Hiso Hotel’s Ampol Charoenkrop in a play-off.

The prize ceremony was chaired by Somkiet Darunaitorn, advisor to the F&B Association Pattaya, who also gave out the prizes.
