NITESH Chand will be the top seed for the Amar Bob's-sponsored snooker tournament at the South Seas Club in Lautoka this Sunday.

Chand goes into the tournament on a high note after winning the Paradise Beverages third National Rankings Championship a fortnight ago.

He will face stiff competition from players such as Suresh Chauhan, Philip Gock, Vinesh Prasad and Husmukh Chauhan in the A Grade.

In the B Grade the battle will be between Suresh Papi Singh, Dharam Jeet Singh, Nilesh Chand and Surya Julie Narayan.

Club secretary Rahul Mohammed said more than 30 players were expected to participate.

Mohammed said the players would be divided into two grades.

"We are grateful to our sponsor for giving the members a chance to play competitive snooker," he said.

"Nitesh finally ended the southern dominance by winning the national title after a long time which we are proud of."
