Vastavam web: India’s Pankaj Advani won the 35th men’s Asian Snooker Championship to complete a career grand slam in cue sports. With his triumph here on Friday, Advani conquered the ACBS Asian Snooker events – 6-red (short format) and 15-red (long format) – along with the IBSF World Championships in both formats too. Having already accomplished it in billiards, Advani had this elusive 15-red Asian Snooker title missing from his silverware collection. Advani defeated Thanawat Tirapongpaiboon 6-3 in the final to become the only one to win the Asian and World championships in all formats.
“With this title, I’ve done everything I could when representing my country in both the sports. This win completes my trophy cabinet so I now know I will be sleeping well for a very long time.” Advani said.
“Having won all that there is, I’d like to continue competing with the objective of deriving personal growth through the medium of sport and to also share my knowledge with budding cueists.”
