Bengaluru, Aug 9:
Reigning World Billiards Champion Sourav Kothari displayed scintillating billiards at the KSBA billiards hall in Bengaluru to emerge as the overall India No. 1 in the National men’s billiards rankings.
On the way to emerging as the India No. 1, Sourav did the unthinkable by crafting a flawless 400 unfinished break played with absolute deft touch amassing more than 350 points of the break at the top of the table in his last league encounter against B. Bhaskar of Karnataka.
The first selection tournament was played in the 150 up best of 5 format, while the second was played on the 400 up format. By virtue of winning both the National selection tournaments, Sourav will be representing India as No. 1 of the country in the forthcoming World Billiards Championships to be held in Myanmar (short format) in September and Melbourne (long format) in November.
