Daryl Peach wins World Championship in 9-ball!

Daryl Peach became the first player from England to win the World Pool Championship. Having been playing well all tournament Peach finally won over phillippino player Roberto Gomez.

Gomez is the first qualification player ever to make it to the final. A humble Peach says Gomez played the best pool in the tournament until the final. Though in the final the nerves and the pressure made both players make a couple of uncharacteristic errors.

At 15-15 Peach missed a bank on the 9-ball. But then Gomez missed an open shot on the nine before Peach was able to sink it and reach the hill 16-15. In the last rack Peach won a safety battle and then run out securing victory at 17-15!
