Dave Causier: 2016 LITEtask World Champion (100-up)

Dave Causier today won his fourth World Billiards Championship with a dramatic 8-6 victory over Dhruv Sitwala in the final of the 100-up event.

At 7-4 in front and needing one more frame, Dave came to the table with two points on the scoreboard and proceeded to compile a break of 95, just needing three more points for the title. With the red over the middle pocket the match looked all over. However in potting the red he also scored a cannon taking the break to 100, but he hadn’t crossed the baulkline (which is required between 80 & 100 in every break) meaning the ‘winning’ shot became a foul. After some discussion the match continued with Dhruv coming to the table 2-97 behind, producing a cool 98 unfinished to keep the match alive.

It was a similar story in the next frame as Dave stalled within four points of the title and Dhruv again ran out with 94 unfinished under extreme pressure.
