THE fourth and final Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji (BSAF) A Grade National Rankings Championship in Suva this weekend will be a cracker with players vying for a spot in the Champion of Champions (COC) next month.

Former Fiji Games billiards gold medallist Vineel Nand and sharp-shooter Epeli Bua who have been away overseas will spice up the two-day championship.

Jitendra Prasad is the favourite but will face stiff competition from arch rival Walter Robinson.

Only three points separate the two players at the top of the rankings.

Jitendra has 268 points followed by Robinson with 265 points, Rahil Prasad with 234 points, Sahil Prasad with 196 and Viliame Umu with 160 points rounding up the top five.

Jitendra is grouped with Rajnesh Nand and Sikeli Nawaqaliva.

BSAF tournament controller Simon Reddy said the top eight players would be entitled to cash prizes.

Reddy said the total cash prize pool was $1000.

"This will be the toughest battle of the year," he said.

"The battle for top honours will be between Jitendra, Walter, Rahil and Sahil. Vineel is back from Malaysia and Epeli is also back from his overseas commitments. The top 16 players at the end of the rankings will qualify for the COC.

"Pritesh Khatri will be the player to lookout for. He is in good form having scored a break of 103 points during a practice session earlier this week."

Merchants Club is the host venue for the championship.
