Six Red battle

THE Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji expects tough competition to prevail at the Six Red Open Snooker Tournament that starts today.

The Tropicx Design Studio-sponsored tournament will be played at the host Nadi Sports Club and co-host Nadi Club today and tomorrow.

Association president Dr Praveen Maharaj said players from the West would give the players from the Southern Division a run for their money.

"They are running a Six Red League competition in the West while there hasn't been much Six Red competition in the Southern side," he said.

"So the West players will definitely be tough and someone from the West could once again win this weekend."

Isireli Kaci of the South Seas Club from Lautoka is the defending champion of the tournament.

Maharaj thanked Nadi-based architect Raymond Prasad for sponsoring the tournament.

"Thanks to the lucrative sponsorship by Raymond Prasad of Tropicx Design Studio, we will have lucrative prizes on offer at the tournament.

"Entry fee is only $20 and the winner will walk away with $300, and so we are expecting a lot of players to come for the tournament."

Maharaj said the tables at the two venues in Nadi were good and good standard competition could be expected.

"Also, after the completion of Saturday's games, a karaoke competition, together with a mini-social, will be hosted by the association, in conjunction with Nadi Sports Club."
