Billiards Boutique Player Rep Robin Cripps Continues Excellent GB9 Form
Player Rep for Billiards Boutique on the GB 9 Ball Tour, Robin Cripps, has continued his fine form so far in 2015 by winning the GB9 Northern Masters 10 Ball event last weekend.
Robin, who lives in Cornwall, competes in both the GB9 Challenge Division and in the Open events.
At event 2 back in May Cripps came through the Challenge Cup field to reach the final where he came up against recently crowned University Champion Benji Buckley.
Buckley won this particular final 9-4 after getting over the disappointment of losing the final of the Open event.
So to last weekend and it was Cripps who was the man looking to overcome the slight disappointment of a second place finish by going one step further. The tour switched to the 10-ball discipline for this event this meant some very close match results due to the tougher breaking conditions.
Robin got through to the final with wins of 9-8 (v Ben George), 9-6 (v Mark Parker), before beating Tom Staveley 9-4 to reach the semi finals. In the last four Robin then recorded a 9-7 victory over Michael Brisley to set up the final match.
His opponent in the final was this time Dave Nelson and it was a match that went right to the wire with Robin getting across the line to win 9-8. The victory puts him up to Number 2 in the Challenge Cup rankings.
Robin will be at all GB9 events and as a Player Rep for Billiards Boutique is able to take orders for pool cues and other equipment on our behalf, so if there is something you need let Robin know and we will get it shipped out to you, we could even deliver to the venue.
