In a great ambiance, Carl Wilks has won the Top16 Cup 2017.
With Kass from Miramar and Les Finch of Wingies Warriors not present, Kia Richardson of Premium and Santi Llobell of Druids took their places.
Santi started the night in a match against his teammate, favorite and highest ranked player Andy Beckerich. Andy won 2-1, after Santi leading 1-0 in an exciting game.
From the 8 highest ranked players, Nick Coates lost from his Wingies Warriors teammate Harry Pearl, Mike Harding of Teulada Panthers lost 2-0 to Alexis Aristizobal of Mario’s and Joe Whitby surprisingly lost to the second reserve Kia Richardson, both of Premium.
In the quarter finals, Andy lost to Alexis by 2-1 in another great game. Carl beat Harry 2-1, with Harry playing a perfect second leg. Alex beat teammate Pete and Gareth beat his teammate Kia.
In the semi finals, played in 501 format, Gareth was too strong for Alexis and Carl beat Alex.
The final was also played in 501, with a best of 5 legs.
Carl won the first leg, but then Gareth took a 200 points lead in the second leg. Unfortunately, he couldn’t get his double, so Carl took the leg with Tops. In the third leg, Carl secured his victory: 3-0.
Thanks to Jo, Andy and Chloe for being amazing hosts!
