Advani pulls a hat trick, makes history

Indore, Apr 16: Pankaj Advani reserved a page for himself in the history book by becoming the first and the only cueist to win the Asian billiards title three times in a row.

Advani defeated Singapore's Peter Gilchrist in the finals on Thursday, Apr 16 at the Yeshwant Club in Indore.

The fact that he was facing a former world champion did not seem to deter the youngster's determination to clinch the title.

Advani kept his composure and outshone Gilchrist 6-5 to achieve the historic hat-trick at the 2010 Asian Billiards Championship.

Advani, who hails from Bangalore, also holds the World Professional Billiards Title.
