The final of the 2012 World under 21 Snooker Championship was played here in China tonight with two players from China contesting the final. Both young Chinese players were totally focused on lifting their first world junior title and winning that main tour spot for the W.S.A. 2013 – 2014 season.
In fact both Chinese finalists had beaten Irish opposition David Cassidy and Ryan Cronin in the last 16 round. It was a 14 year old Lu Haotian who won the title 9 frames to 6 against team mate 15 year old Zhu Yinghui in a superb final which was played in the middle of a shopping mail.
To put into context how our players preformed in this event you only have to ask the China management team as the only defeat Champion Lu Haotian had in the entire championship was a 4 frames to 1 loss to our very own Irishman David Cassidy in his group match.
Lu Haotian also had the highest break in the championship with a 139 break in frame 11 of todays final beating the previous high mark of 138 to Ross Muir from Scotland.
Overall it was a great event and the Chinese Association did everything they could to make it a successful world championship.
