SUVA's Viliame Umu is favourite to win the Fiji Sangam Classic snooker open tournament which kicks off in Sigatoka this morning.
The Vinod Gounder Construction-sponsored two-day tournament has attracted most of the country's top players plus some former top players who now reside overseas.
Tournament co-ordinator Rocky Ali said the event would see most of our best snooker players competing against some former top national players.
"We will have players from New Zealand and Canada and they will be here to compete and try and take home the top prize," Ali said.
"Competition will start at 9am at the Sigatoka Club after a players briefing."
Ali said dress code for the tournament which ends tomorrow would be very strict.
Registration fee for players is $20 and the tournament is open to all snooker players in Fiji.
