Barker plays out of the Almon Billiards club of Halifax. Boone is the house pro of the Q Billiards club chain in Halifax.

With 106 entries from all 4 Eastern Canadian provinces, the competition was quite tough.

In the final, Barker sped off to a 6-0 lead only to have Boone fight back to within one after 19 games. Then they traded off the next 6 games. Barker took command again and rattled off 3 in a row to put him in a position of needing only one morewin to capture the title. Boone fought back, taking the next 2. Barker finally potted the 9-ball in the 31st game to win the match and Championship by a score of 17-14.


This was Barker's second win at this event in the 4-year-old event. He won the innaugural one in 1993.

1996 Nationals

1996 Canadian Nine Ball Championships

The Canadian 9-Ball Championships continually packed in the crowds at the Midtown Plaza in Saskatchewan, as the championships unfolded into a battle of veterans.

The final featured Canadian Pro Tournament Player, Paul Pottier against veteran all-round shooter, Bernie Mikkelson. In a race to 15, Paul jumped into an early lead in the final; eventually leading 14 - 11 before Bernie was able to pull even with him. With the final tied at 14, and each player needing only one game to clinch the title, it appeared Paul Potier was about to run out when his position left him snookered behind his final ball and he missed allowing Bernie Mikkelson to have ball-in-hand. Bernie, in true champion style ran the table winning the championship by a narrow 15 - 14 margin.

Both players have advanced to the World Championships to be held in Sweden.

 Top Finishers:
 1st - BernieMikkelson, Alta. Trip to World's plus $2000

1996 Canadian Snooker Championships

With the return of former professional player Kirk Stevens, there was a buzz of excitement about the possibility of a player rising to the challenge to defeat the clear favourite for the title. The final sixteen showed a good representation of players from across the country with 2 from Nova Scotia, 3 from New Brunswick, 2 from Alberta, 3 from the host province Saskatchewan and 6 from Ontario.

The highlight of the event, and destined to become one of the classic matches of the Canadian Snooker Championships, was the matchup between the ex-pro Kirk Stevens and the 22 year old Nova Scotia Champion Greg Wilson.

It was apparent early on that the young Nova Scotian was not to be intimated by the more seasoned veteran. Although Kirk Stevens was the early leader and led by 5 - 3 in a race to 7, he was unable to shake a determined Greg Wilson. After six hours of gruelling snooker the match was tied at 5and then a 6. In the thirteen and deciding game with only the colors left, Kirk had an opportunuity to run out but was unable to clear the table. Greg came to the table to win by sinking the pink on a difficult long pot. In a show of appreciation both players were given a standing ovation by an appreciative standing room only crowd.

In the semi-finals of the top half of the draw, Wilson failed to defeat Ben Reicker of Alta. who had played steady, and cool headed throughout the tournament. The other semi-final featured tough Gerard Morrison of Ont. and veteran Nova Scotian, Ray Saunders. Saunders playing perhaps the best snooker of his career came out on top 7 - 5.

The final of the championship belonged to Reicker when Saunders failed to Find the range. Reicker winning handily 8 - 4. Both players have qualified to represent Canada in the IBSF World's Championships in New Zealand in November. The high run of the tournament was by Kirk Stevens at 128. Greg Wilson placing third in the tournament will be the alternate choice if either Ben Reicker or Ray Saunders are unable to fulfill their commitment. Good luck to all the Players.

1996 Nova Scotia Snooker Championship

The Nova Scotia Snooker Championship was won Saturday May 6 by 22-year old Greg Wilson, the youngest to ever win the event.

Wilson defeated veteran former champion Ken Shea 7-6 in the final. With the win, Greg Wilson earned the right to represent Nova Scotia in the Canadian Championship in Saskatoon.

Shea had already earned a berth in the Canadians by virtue of an earlier win in the Maritime Open. They will be joined by semi-finalist Cookie MacLeod who earlier won the Maritime Closed.

For some reason, this year's tournament featured few long runs, with most players taking a few points, then deciding to run with a safety play. There were no centuries. Longest runs were in the final, with Wilson shooting a 74 and a 73, and Shea had a run of 72.

There were several upsets and near upsets to maintain fan interest. Based on tournament seedings, which are based on earned Provincial Rankings, Twelve of the 31 games saw a lower seed win over a higher ranked player. Six were in the 16-game first round. Most notable was a late night win by #23 Manoj Vohra over #10 Doug Mattatall who was reportedly playing very well coming in. In another first-round game #2 Jamie Stevens barely survived when #31 Mike Cusack jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead before narrowly losing 5-4.

However, the tournament settled down. Highest seed to make the quarter-finals was #12, and the highest to reach the semis was #7.

Ken Shea wins the trip to the Canadian Championship in Vancouver BC
in June where he will be seeded 4th because of his win here.

B Class players who lost in the Main A Event drop into
a B tournament running at the same time. Scores will be 
posted later. 

Just a reminder that the next "ranking" tournament, the 6th of 9, will be
held at Spryfield Cue this coming weekend. These are a series of         
tournaments where NS players compete to accumulate points to qualify for 
play in the Provincial Championships. Most of the players come from New  
Glasgow, Sydney, and metro areas.  ...Budd
