NITESH Chand won the 2014 TISI Sangam Snooker Open competition at the Sigatoka Club on Saturday.

The Vinod Gounder Construction-sponsored tournament attracted most of the country's top players along with some former top players who now reside overseas.

It was also for the first time the organisers invited non Sangam players to participate in a bid to expose new talents and promote the sport at the grassroots level.

Chand defeated Mahend Deo 3-1 in the final.

Deo overcame Esala Talebula 2-1 while Chand beat Sunny Narayan 2-0 in the semi-finals.

Defending champion Vineel Nand — who lost to eventual winner Chand — Mahendra Deo, Rimal Narayan, Rahil Prasad, Viliame Umu and Isireli Kaci were some top players taking part in the tournament.

Tournament co-ordinator Rocky Ali said the event had most of the best snooker players competing against some former top national players and current national reps.

He hailed the day-long tournament, which had about 30 players, a success.

Meanwhile, Chand walked away with $300 while Deo from Nadi settled for $150.
