JACK Cox is the frontrunner for the Veterans Open Snooker tournament at the Merchants Club in Suva.

He breezed through his pool games unbeaten and looks on course to qualify for the final today.

Cox won all three games in the pool two of the Sam Super Pool sponsored event 2-0.

Qualifying as runner-up from the pool was Rajen Kumar with two wins.

Tournament co-ordinator and Southern Division Billiards and Snooker Association vice president David Ratnam said the other pools had mixed results.

Ram Nand and Pravin Maharaj qualified from pool one, Mohan Lal and Moti qualified from pool three and Rocky Ali of Sigatoka and Bipin Patel qualified from pool four.

"We had very high standards of games from the veterans of the sport," Ratnam said.

"We have had players coming from as far as Sigatoka and this shows the amount of interest there is in veterans snooker."

Ratnam commended the players on their attitude towards their respective games and opponents.

"The players were really disciplined and there was so much respect towards the opponents and the game and this is one of the quietest and most interesting games we have hosted in recent times.

"Also we would like to thank LB Masters for their support and Carz and Carz for sponsoring the meals and the polo shirts for the tournament."

Quarter-finals will start at 10am today.
