BILOLEVU Club member Viliame Umu took out the TropicX Design Studio-sponsored National Six Reds Championship at the Nadi Sports Club on Saturday night.

Dubbed as the "Billiards Master" Umu showed his class and experience to defeat hometown favourite David Reddy 3-1 in the final.

Umu who hails from Tubou, Lakeba, stood out in the competition qualifying for the quarter-finals from a tough pool which had inform players Suresh Chauhan and Tony Cen.

In the semi-final, Umu downed defending champion Isireli Kaci while David beat Simon Reddy.

In the quarter-finals, Kaci defeated former Fiji number three Nitesh Chand, Umu beat Rimal Narayan, Simon downed Navneil Maharaj and David beat Raymond Reddy.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji president Praveen Maharaj said Umu played some exquisite shots to take the title to the Southern Division.

Maharaj said the Western Division players dominated the competition with seven reaching the quarter-finals.

"Umu happened to be the lone player from the South to qualify for the quarter-finals," he said.

"So there was a lot of pressure on him. Experience played a big part in the competition with Umu keeping his composure to pot the balls."

Meanwhile Nitesh continued his fine form winning the Six Reds League round four competition at the South Seas Club in Lautoka last Wednesday.

Nitesh defeated Vinesh Prasad 1-0 in the final.

In the semi-final Nitesh defeated Kaci while Prasad beat Raymond. Kaci won the third and fourth place playoffs by default.
