Akbar Wins Asian Championship

Away from the Crucible, another tour place for the 2015/16 season has today been claimed, as Pakistan’s Hamza Akbar has defeated former professional Pankaj Advani 7-6 to claim the 2015 Asian Championship in Cheras, Malaysia.

Akbar’s victory earns him a two-year tour card starting from next season and means that aside from Q School, there appear to be just two professional places still to be claimed for next season, as you can see here at my updated roll call article.
