A CLOSE battle is expected during the Billiards and Snooker Association third B Grade National Rankings Championship at the Nausori Club this weekend.

The two-day event will feature the upcoming players in the sport such as Abdul Masood who won the first event, second rankings winner Roneel Sami and Nadi Sports Club Open champion Pene Erenio.

William Lee and Humayun Khan will lead the Western charge.

Mohit Dass of Nausori Club will be a player to lookout for.

Association tournament co-ordinator Simon Reddy said 32 players would be drawn into eight pools of four players.

Reddy said three frame matches would be played in the group stages.

"It will be five frame games from the quarter-finals onwards," he said.

"Ajesh Chand of Lautoka Club has been in good form lately. Pene playing on his home tables will be hard to stop."

He said Sami proved to be the surprise package during the second rankings championship when he defeated veteran Dan Saturu of Nadi Club 3-2 frames in the final to win his first major title in June.
