Francisco Wins in South Africa

Home » Francisco Wins in South Africa

Peter Francisco won his eighth South African National Snooker Championship after a dramatic 7-6 final win over Faaris Khan at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg.

A tournament that was first competed for in 1937, this year’s edition drew a healthy field of 72 players.

Leading up to the final, former world number 14 Francisco dropped only four frames in four knockout matches, although the final would prove to be a real tussle with both players trading frames and exchanging the lead. It would eventually be decided by Francisco potting the final pink in the final frame.

Event date: 14th-21st May 2016.
