Thailand’s top snooker players are participating in the Sangsom 6 Red Thailand Championship 2019, which kicked off at Fashion Island on Tuesday.

Players are competing in a round-robin format of 8 groups comprising four or five players, with the top 2 players in each group advancing to the knockout stage.

Thai snooker legend Wattana Phu-ob-orm (aka James Wattana) and his fellow professionals, Noppol Sangkham and Akani Songsermsawas, are in the field and required to give amateur players a 7-point start every frame.

“With world-ranked players taking part this year, we can be sure of high-quality snooker,” said Sunthorn Jarumon, president of the Billiards Sports Association of Thailand. “Ratings on True Visions are very good and holding the tournament in a shopping centre like this will surely draw big crowds.”

As many as 24 matches are being played every day.

The event is being broadcast live on True Visions three times a day – 13.30pm, 15.30pm and 17.30pm. 

If you can make it to Fashion Island, entry costs just Bt50 and is valid for the whole day.
