BUSINESSMAN Mahendra Deo showed his class to take out the North West Billiards and Snooker Association Six Reds Championship at the Lautoka Club on Saturday.

Deo defeated Nitesh Chand 4-3 in a marathon final which lasted nearly two hours.

With the game tied at three frames each, Nitesh tried a clearance from the green ball but missed handing Deo the advantage who cleaned the table.

It was tit for tat from the first frame with Deo opening with a win before Nitesh tied it up by winning the second.

Deo led 3-2 but Nitesh bounced back to level despite creating a few fouls.

Deo pocketed $300 while Nitesh collected $200.

In the semi-finals, Deo downed Ajesh Chand 3-1 while Nitesh beat veteran Suresh Chauhan 3-0.

In the quarter-finals, Nitesh edged Vinesh Prasad 3-2, Chauhan defeated Rimal Narayan 3-2, Ajesh upset Ismail Wali 3-2 while Deo beat Salesh Kumar 3-2.

Association secretary Raymond Reddy said the tournament was a success.

Reddy said the final went down to the wire.

"Both Mahendra and Nitesh played cautiously," he said.

"It could have gone either way but at the end Deo kept his patience and potted the balls in cleverly."

Meanwhile the third National Rankings Championship will be held in Lautoka from July 12-13.
