Workaholic Shyam Kotak in 3rd round

 

Mumbai: Shyam Kotak is a workaholic to the core. Be it on the table or off it. Being one of the organizers, he was glued to the computer all the time, drawing fixture and draws. But the moment he held his cue in his hand, he showed that he was equally focused on the table too. This resulted in his putting out Sunil Jain 200-123 to move into the third round of the Rosy Blue sponsored Hindu Gymkhana-Wilson Jones All India Open handicap Snooker and Billiards  championships, hosted by P.J.Hindu Gymkhana here on Thursday.

 

Equally impressive were fancied Chandu Shah, who, however, had to endure some tough moments before squeezing past Cyrus Mistry 200-199. While Kirit Raiyani,  helped byu a couple of small breaks of 20 ousted Dakshesh Shah 200-157.
