Pankaj Advani Wins National Title

Pankaj Advani has bagged the National title in 6-red Snooker, the shorter format of the game.

In the final in Mumbai, Advani was up against local youngster Ishpreet Chadha.

The multiple world champion overcame his junior opponent 7-4 in a strong display of potting with finesse.

Advani reclaimed the title, which he had won during the inaugural edition in Bangalore in 2010. He is the only player in the world to win all titles — National, Continental and World — in 6-red Snooker.

Advani is now the strongest contender for qualifying for the Asian and World Championships in 6-red Snooker in 2017 to represent India.
