Double Joy for Moh Keen Hoo winning 24th National Snooker Championship 2010

Moh Keen Hoo in action

Today he is the National Snooker Champion, tomorrow he takes on another role and becomes the Man of the day. Moh Keen Hoo couldn’t ask for more joy and delight after winning the 24th National Snooker Championship 2010, adding a bonus cash prize of RM5000 and extends his celebration to tomorrow with his wedding ceremony taking place.

The match started slightly later due to the delay completion of the Semi Finals but expectations were high as the Championship witnessed 2 newcomers playing in the Final. Moh Keen Hoo, though had much success overseas including winner of the Asian Junior Championship, still could not add this title to his belt after years of trial. Lai Chee Wei, silver medalist in the 25th SEA Games Mens Snooker Double, was also playing his first final of the National Championship, hoping to be victorious this time around.

Once started, Lai wasted no time and sped off to an early 2 frames lead. Still trying to catch his rhythm, Moh played the 3rd frame strategically, hoping to disrupt Lai’s playing form and won the frame at the colours. After that Moh seemed unstoppable as he wins another 4 frames in a row, leading 5-3 and only 1 frame from victory. Lai wasn’t about to give up easily and made a 65 break in frame 8 to reduce the lead to 5-3. But that was the last frame Lai would win in this Championship as Moh totally dominated frame 9 and won the frame and match to claim the National Snooker Champion title. He walks away with RM5000 cash prize, the Challenge trophy and the title, with a smile as wide as he could stretch.

Below is the match breakdown of the Final :-
