COOL, calm and collected.Fiji Snooker Open defending champion Viliame Umu shows no strains ahead of the championship, which starts in Suva today.
The Bilolevu Club member said he barely trained for his title defence and was "looking forward to enjoy his time" at the competition.
Umu said he was expecting a tough challenge from Suman Lal, Pranil Singh, Pritesh Khatri, Jiten Prasad and other regulars at the Fiji Bitter and Blue Gas-sponsored event.
Last year, the 48-year-old defeated Canada-based Feroz Khan 4-3 to clinch the title.
"I work for the Suva City Council, doing night shift so I barely get time to train unlike many of the other competitors, who play regularly," Umu said.
"I will just go there (in the championship) and enjoy my game."
Umu, who has won almost 15 national titles, has been playing snooker since 1972.
He first won the Fiji Snooker Open in 1985.
Meanwhile the winner of the tournament, which finishes tomorrow, will receive $400.
The runner-up will get $200 while the losing semi-finalist will collect $100 each.
