Mark Davis wins 6-Red World Snooker Championship

Published Add your comment

Mark Davis retained his SangSom 6-Red World Championship crown in Bangkok, by beating world-number-one Neil Robertson 8-4 in the final at the Montien Riverside Hotel.

The 41-year-old from Hastings won his third title, and earned himself the equivalent of just under £40,000 in prize money.

Both players had to contest nine matches prior to Saturday’s final, with world-number 17 Davis whitewashing John Higgins and overcoming Mark Selby in the knockout stages.

Australian Robertson had won all nine of his encounters this week, which included knockout wins over Judd Trump, Shaun Murphy and Stuart Bingham en route to the final.

The 31-year-old had won just one of the previous six meetings with Davis, but looked like putting an end to this run when he raced into an early 3-1 lead.

However his dominance was brought to a shattering halt, as the defending champion reeled off six straight frames to move himself one away from victory.

Robertson kept the match alive for another frame, before Davis wrapped up his third title.
