Wisbech pool champion Andy Lucas added to his illustrious accolade of achievements winning his fourth individual world pool title.
Lucas competed in the IPA World Pool Championships in the senior world championships consisting of the top players in the world.
Andy got off to a great start in the early rounds but saved his best pool for the semi final disposing of top professional Andy Blurton 7 3.
In the final Andy played another legend of the game 2 x world champion Jason Twist. Andy got off to a great start going 3 nil up in the final only to be pegged back to 3 frames all. The world final stayed a tight affair and at 5 frames all Lucas pulled out two world class pots to take the lead. Another chance came in the next frame only to be missed and it was down to the deciding frame.
Andy held his nerve and pulled out a pressure clearance to become world champion once again.
Andy who is sponsored by Webb’s newsagents said he was over the moon to pick up a fourth world title in particular playing on the TV again. The highlights of the final will be shown by Freesports TV on Sky Sports in the near future.
He said: “To win my fourth individual world title is unbelievable and I’m over the moon to still be competing at the highest level.
“The competition was full of World class players and former world champions. I knew I had been playing well in practice and it is a real confidence boost to transfer that into some big matches in front of the TV cameras.”
He added: “I’m excited about the new season with some matches being streamed and others live on Freesports TV. I would like to thank my sponsor Webb’s of Leverington for their support.”
