Victorian Under 21 Snooker
the Victorian Under 21's was played on sunday at the AK8 Billiards lounge. Thankyou to Kevin Xu and his staff, a great venue.
After the round robin matches 4 players progressed to the Semis seeded as follows 
1. Charlie Chafe
2. Ryan Thomerson 
3. Adam Bleumink
4. Arthur Lin
Ryan Played Adam & quickly went into a 2 frame lead ,Adam won the 3rd frame to go 2/1 the fourth frame was a scrappy game which Ryan managed to win on the colours. to win the match 3/1 & go into the final
on the other table Charlie was off to a shaky start which gave young Arthur Lin confidence , And saw Arthur making breaks of 40 , 30 to go into a 2/0 lead 
though Charlie thought hard in the 3rd frame Arthur was not missing many shots & ended up taking the frame & match with a good 50 break & progressing into his first u21s Vic final 
 
The final was a one sided affair with Arthur finding the AK8 Star table very different to the tables played on earlier ,Ryan on the other hand quickly got into his stride with a 70 break in the first 43 in the second & anther 45 in the third frame to take the Title 3/0
 

Ryan Thomerson Has now won all Victorian titles u12.s, u15,s u18,s u21,s & he now has his sights on the mens to complete all the Victorian titles !
