NITESH Chand is the top seed for the Deo Shankar-sponsored North West Billiards and Snooker Association Open Championship at the South Seas Club in Lautoka tomorrow.

Chand goes into the tournament on a high note having won the third national rankings tournament at the same venue in July.

He will also hold the advantage playing at his home club.

Nadi Sports Club's Mahen Deo and Rimal Narayan and Lautoka Club's Vinesh Prasad and Suresh Chauhan are the other favourites.

Veteran's Imail Wali and Ali Boy of Ba Central Club will pose a threat to the top seeds.

Association vice president Raymond Reddy said the draws for the one-day event would be released today.

He said formal dress code would apply.

"If we have 32 entries then the pool format will be utilised," he said.

"The two top teams from each pool will qualify for the eliminations."

The winner will receive $300 while the runner-up will get $200.
