WORLD BILLIARDS CHAMPIONSHIP

In Association with Northern Snooker Centre

 

Mike Russell defeated defending champion Dave Causier 2224 – 1115 in the five hour final of the 2016 LITEtask World Billiards Championship at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds today.

This is Russell’s first World Championship title since 2011 and is his 12th WPBSA title in total. In the final he fired in breaks of 133, 216, 183, 50, 60, 82, 196, 291, 585 & 158 to outscore his opponent by almost 2 to 1. Causier was still in touch during the first session, trailing by just 201 at the interval, but Russell’s scoring power overwhelmed the defending champion in the second half, Russell winning the session 1342 – 434 including the highest break of the event; 585.

Dave Causier: 2016 LITEtask World Champion (100-up)

Dave Causier today won his fourth World Billiards Championship with a dramatic 8-6 victory over Dhruv Sitwala in the final of the 100-up event.

At 7-4 in front and needing one more frame, Dave came to the table with two points on the scoreboard and proceeded to compile a break of 95, just needing three more points for the title. With the red over the middle pocket the match looked all over. However in potting the red he also scored a cannon taking the break to 100, but he hadn’t crossed the baulkline (which is required between 80 & 100 in every break) meaning the ‘winning’ shot became a foul. After some discussion the match continued with Dhruv coming to the table 2-97 behind, producing a cool 98 unfinished to keep the match alive.

It was a similar story in the next frame as Dave stalled within four points of the title and Dhruv again ran out with 94 unfinished under extreme pressure.

Dave wasn’t to be denied his fourth World Championship win however, and made his own contribution of 81 unfinished to become the 2016 LITEtask World Billiards Champion (Short Format).

Results Summary

High Breaks

This was a level 3 world ranking tournament with £2000+ prize money and full ranking points.


Please note, the draw for this competition was based on the 2015/16 Ranking List, which affected the starting positions of 9 of the 22 top two seeds. This was done to ensure no player played any other player across the three events in Leeds starting this weekend. Players in the Timed World Championship event draw are closest to their ranking position on the 2015/16 Ranking List with minor adjustments made to ensure the different nations are separated in the groups. The 100up draw was made with as few minor adjustments to the Timed event draw as possible to ensure players were not in the same group as anyone in the Timed event. Finally, the Jim Williamson Memorial World Open draw was made with as few movements to the 100up draw as possible to ensure no player played any other in more than one event. We hope you understand the challenges presented by this process and accept that the choices we made were in the interests of all players in all competitions.
