In a see-saw match between Dinesh of Q-Lounge and Satish of Q-City, the former held his nerves to win in the Q-Lounge All India Snooker Tournament here on Monday.
Both the players demonstrated their potting capabilities and made the game look simple though they could not make big breaks. Satish potted a long-range black to take the second frame. Satish shocked Dinesh in the third frame with a beautiful double to the center pot putting the scoreline leading 2-1
Dinesh tried his hands in safety and was not quite successful though. Satish having had opportunities did not capitalise on the openings to the extent that Satish scored only 5 points while Dinesh scored 59 taking the match to the decider frame. Satish became shaky in the decider and was missing potting. Dinesh finished the decider frame comfortably winning the match.
