CHANDI­GARH: Su­mit Tal­war of Chandi­garh de­feated city-mate Ra­jat Khaneja 3-2 in a well-con­tested fi­nal of TheProCir­cuitLeague 6-tour­na­ment se­ries at Asia Bil­liards, Sec­tor 34, Chandi­garh, on Mon­day.

On his way to win the first tour­na­ment of the six-tour­na­ment se­ries, Tal­war also made the high­est break of 63 points.

In an en­gross­ing en­counter that went down the wire, Tal­war gained the lead by nar­rowly edg­ing past his op­po­nent 78-77 in the open­ing frame. Khaneja, how­ever, drew par­ity by win­ning the sec­ond frame 58-55.

In the third frame, Tal­war ex­er­cised com­plete dom­i­nance over his op­po­nent and won 65-23 to again surge ahead.

But Khaneja did not give up and claimed the fourth frame 89-45 to set up the match for an ex­cit­ing fin­ish.

In the de­cider, Tal­war re­gained his touch to win the fi­nal frame 68-40, and walked away with the ti­tle.
