Belgrave New Year Billiards Classic

Dave White

Dave White hits the ground running in the New Year

Bude’s Dave White once again demonstrated the quality of billiards which has enabled him to win nine Cornish titles over the last 25 years, as he triumphed in the New Year Classic billiards tournament at the Belgrave Club in Plymouth, which was played over a non-handicapped timed format. In the final, White made his third century break of the day, along with contributions of 81 and 77, to hold the table for long periods against Plymouth’s World number 20 Steve Brookshaw and run out a 406-99 winner.
Group A was won by Derek White, who is a Cornish teammate but no relation to the overall winner, with Chris Coumbe securing the second qualifying place. The highest break of the group was Coumbe’s 71.
The two eventual finalists emerged as the two qualifiers from Group B, with Dave White compiling the highest break of the day with a 135.
In the semi-finals, Coumbe held a lead against Dave White for the first 45 minutes of their hour match but it was a fine unfinished break of 127 by the latter which won him the match by 84. Meanwhile, Brookshaw beat Group A winner Derek White in the other semi-final.
The next billiards event at the Belgrave is a handicapped tournament which will take place on Sunday 25th January. For more information please contact the organiser Geoff Setter on email geoffreysetter123@o2.co.uk
