IIPM Bangalore hosts a Snooker Tournament

IIPM Bangalore hosted Intra College Snooker tournament on 20th of April at KSBA (Karnataka state billiards association) .The game was played in time format where the competition had become much harder because just winning wouldn’t qualify them to the next 2nd round. Quarter finals being a knock out stage had 4 matches among the 8 participants. After a nerve racking Quarter final round we had the top 4 out of the 28 participants. The Final was a face-off between Arun D student of FW 11-13 batch and Uzair who works for the events and corporate relation team. The match had a dramatic start, as in the first frame Arun outsmarted Uzair and won the round. The second frame saw a total 360 degree change with Uzair revealing his ability to turn things around- outscoring Arun by a huge margin. Both the finalists, having come so far, refused to give in the title without a fight that would be a treat for the spectators. Numerous twists and turns later, Arun pocketed the final with a clinically efficient display, holding his nerve during the tight moments.
