Corporate billiards players reached the climax of their season on Tuesday night and what a nail-biting finish it was.
KPMG were favourites for the championship after their win over Digicel. For KPMG to claim the winners’ cup it would mean that UBS would have had to defeat Dart MGMT, the leaders after six weeks of league matches.
In what turned out to be the most exciting match of the season, with the score tied at six-all in a race to seven, UBS reached the winning 8-ball first, seemingly potting it for victory. Well not so fast – the white ball is still rolling..rolling..rolling. What! It falls in the pocket and Dart MGMT are the winners and the new 2007 Corporate Billiard League Champions.
All the billiards players are set to meet again tomorrow to play for fun and watch the Floyd Mayweather-Ricky Hatton fight at Jillian’s which is on the side of World Gym and underneath the Matrix nightclub.
