AJESH Chand pulled off a surprise victory at the Six Reds snooker league round nine competition at the South Seas Club in Lautoka on Wednesday night.

The Ricoh Business Centre sales executive defeated Rajnesh Nand 2-0 in the final. The victory earned Chand valuable points to move up the rankings in a bid to claim a spot in the main final playoffs next month.

Chand will be in action at the Fiji Billiards and Snooker Association second National Rankings Championship which starts in Lautoka tomorrow.

He will play in the B Grade.

Chand said his victory on Wednesday could not have come at a better time.

"I'm in good form and hope that it will continue through the weekend," he said.

"I did not do well at the nationals last year failing to go beyond the pool stages. But this time round I'm aiming to do better by qualifying for the top 16.

"I have been practising daily and have gained a lot of confidence."

On Wednesday, Chand defeated Navneil Maharaj 2-0 in the semi-final while Nand beat Suresh Chauhan by the same scoreline.
