Marker Sunil turns tables on Jamshed in handicap snooker tourney

Mumbai, Dec 8: Sunil Shedge, a marker at P J Hindu Gymkhana, rallied in style to beat Jamshed Darulwala to enter the third round of the Rosy Blue sponsored Hindu Gymkhana-Wilson Jones All India Open handicap snooker championships here today.

Sunil, who was referring one of the matches earlier, took time to find his bearing. The first frame was dominated by Jamshed, who hardly gave Sunil any chance. But Sunil, once he got his act together, went on to claim the next two frames with ease, winning the tie at 63-104, 103-79, 98-80.

Vaibhav Sharma from Delhi, who had made the last four grade in this very event last year, opened his campaign with style. He snuffed out the challenge of V Subramaniam, even before the latter took the opening frame. Vaibhav won at 73-114, 101-69, 12-86.
