In­dore: Ace cueist Pankaj Ad­vani on Sun­day claimed yet an­other se­nior Na­tional snooker ti­tle with a thump­ing win over young Lax­man Rawat in a one-sided fi­nal here. Ad­vani an­nexed the na­tional ti­tle tak­ing his to­tal tally of In­dian cham­pi­onships to a whop­ping 32 golds.

Af­ter win­ning 11 In­dian ti­tles as a ju­nior, Ad­vani, as a se­nior, has won nine bil­liards, three sixred snooker and now nine snooker gold medals. From a sta­tis­ti­cal point of view, Ad­vani now has 21 world ti­tles and 21 na­tional ti­tles as a men’s player, in both snooker and bil­liards.

Ad­vani took his younger op­po­nent Rawat to the clean­ers with a 6-0 win in the fi­nal. The match was mostly de­fined by the cham­pion’s ex­pe­ri­ence as he brought on a lethal com­bi­na­tion of scor­ing and safety of the high­est qual­ity.
