Lucky 13 for Wayne Martin at BCI

Lucky 13 for Wayne Martin at BCI

Thirteen proved to be lucky for Wayne Martin on Tuesday evening.  The former professional and three-times winner of the Eastwood Open, organised the first of what he hopes will become a regular snooker tournament at BCI Snooker Centre in Bulwell.  Thirteen players turned out, each paying just £5 for a chance to win the £45 first prize.  Inevitably it was Martin himself who walked away with the money, beating Sam Haugh in the final.

All players who entered the tournament were given a handicap to even things out a little.  Ten year old Thomas Coleman thoroughly enjoyed himself, particularly as he knocked out Eastwood Open semi-finalist Steve Butler in the first round.  There were also good first round wins for Jonathan Mason and Toby Irons.

Mason and Martin Yah each took home £5 as losing semi-finalists and Haugh left with £20 in his back pocket as a reward for reaching the final.  The final was played over one frame due to time constraints.
