Snooker Final

0414_scene_snookerLast month witnessed Guangdong’s first ever professional snooker event. The World Snooker Dongguan Open started with a draw of 240 professional and amateur players in a single elimination tournament at the Dongcheng Sports Park from March 4 through 8. The final match pitted two players who were very familiar with each other. Britian’s Stuart Bingham, ranked 6th in the world, beat China’s No. 2 Liang Wenbo in five frames, but when not playing each other in tournament play, they are practice partners in their home of residence in London. “I’d like to say thanks to all the workers and all the volunteers that worked here this week. Obviously it was a great venue,” said Bingham. “I dedicate this win to my father-in-law Terry.”
