Handicap Snooker Grand Final 2010


John Gower vs Lawrence Seinafo


This match is the Final of the 2010 Canterbury Handicap Snooker at the Papanui Club. This was the culmination of 3 qualifying events over the previous 3 months

I was playing against Lawrence Seinafo who had a 9 point start and clearly by the fact that I had won 12 straight frames in a row, I guess you could say I was up for it.
I won comfortably 2-0 to take the $450 first prize.

Canterbury Intermediate Snooker
2007 Winner

My best effort to date

Sub Item Name

I haved played Snooker at a serious competitive level for the past 4 years during which time I played the National circuit for a season obtaining a National rank of 17 at my best.

I enjoyed the tour and the competition. I gained a knowledge of where I was at in the game and what I needed to do to be a contender. I played two National Championships, the first during which I failed to win a frame and the second where not only did I win my first frame but I also managed to qualify to the post section KO stage.
My main goal in Snooker is to represent New Zealand at the World Masters as well as of course win the World Masters title.

Winning the Intermediate title was an important step in my bid to becoming a competitive force on firstly the local Canterbury snooker scene and all things going well on the National Snooker scene
