Mumbai: Kamal Chawla of Railways showed great character and maintained his winning momentum to emerge champion of the Bombay Gymkhana Handicap Billiards Tournament 2018.
The lanky Railway cueist Chawla (-325 handicap) just kept it simple and stayed right on track as he went on to quell the challenge from Mandpeshwar Civic Foundation’s Rohan Jambusaria (-375) by carving out a 200-113 victory in the final played at the Bombay Gymkhana billiards room.
Chawla displayed better consistency with his shots, but was unable to hit the high notes.
However, he was cool and calculated throughout and with each visit to the table he managed to stitch together some tidy breaks, which included one substantial run of 60, as he kept accumulating the points which enabled him to successfully cross the finish line with a degree of comfort.
On the other hand, Jambusaria, who enjoyed a fantastic run till the summit clash, was unable to rise to the challenge as he struggled a bit and could not find his usual free-flowing touch and form.
