Holt And Saengkham Make Winners’ Week

Michael Holt and Noppon Saengkham progressed to Winners’ Week of the BetVictor Championship League Snooker – Ranking Edition at the Morningside Arena in Leicester.

Holt was the first of the day to make it into the second phase, following victories over Scott Donaldson and Alfie Burden in group one. The Hitman ended tied on six points with Burden, but edged him out on frames won. Nottingham’s Holt deposed Londoner Burden by beating him in his last match of the group, earning a 3-0 whitewash victory

Saengkham and Mark Davis contested an exhilarating final match in group 19 for a return to Leicester next week. Saengkham had won both of his previous games – against Ross Muir and Jenson Kendrick. Davis secured a 3-0 victory over Kendrick, but drew 2-2 with Muir – leaving a deficit of two points to Saengkham at the top of the table. Only a victory for Davis would see him progress.

With Davis leading 2-1, the match came down to the final black. Both players spurned chances, but it was Saengkham who eventually deposited the black to ensure the match ended 2-2.
