Snooker starts winning the UK Open Pool Championship

Gary Wilson, Martin Gould and Fraser Patrick all started winning the UK Open Pool Championship while snooker players took on other billiards sports over the summer break.

The new 9-ball event was announced in September last year, and it’s no surprise that it has lured some snooker players with a total prize pool of $200,000 (160,000).

Former World Snooker Championship semi-finalist Gary Wilson defeated American Blaine Bacchus in the first round on Tuesday afternoon, winning 9-6.

Wilson told Matchroom: It was twitching a bit, too close to my taste.

It was a bit of a disappointing game. I’m just trying to get used to the conditions and realize what’s going on.

But luckily he gave us a few extra chances at the end. I kept potting the ball and did my best to hit the next one and keep it simple.

This came after Barcus questioned the fact that Wilson came in as a seed despite no pool experience.

It’s interesting how someone who’s never played a professional pool game gets a seed, Barcus said before the defeat.

I’m sure he’s not lethargic, but I like my chances. He’s hitting the ball well and he’s having fun playing.

Former German Masters and Snooker Shootout Champion Gould defeated Spanish Tashunka Schultz 9-4.

Gould is constantly off center and has to sort out his breakouts after failing potballs, but Scultz didn’t play well and continued to hand over the Pinner Potter opportunities he had seized.

I felt really comfortable, the tables were beautiful to play and I enjoyed playing. Gould said.

I don’t like to play my own trumpet, but I know I can play it. It was a little unfamiliar because I was not used to playing in such conditions. But after the first few racks were gone, I felt comfortable.

We are happy to win, there is still a long way to go and there are still many good players.

Scotland’s Fraser Patrick also got off to a good start with a 9-6 victory over David Black and a second round encounter with Oliver Szolnoki.

Wilson met Chris Alexander in the second round, but Gulz’s opponent has yet to be determined.

Chris Melling, who spent time on the pro snooker circuit but better known for his achievements in the pool, made it through Round 1 by defeating Petr Urban 9-0.
