Peter Udycz
2023 State Billiards Champion

In a repeat of last year’s final, Peter Udycz claimed his 17th SA State Billiards title with a resounding victory over defending champion Arthur Karanis. Udycz, who went into the final as the form player, dominated the match from the outset, quickly establishing a 100-point lead over his opponent and never looking back.
The four hour match play final proved to be an entertaining affair, with Udycz showcasing his impressive form throughout. He notched up eight 50+ breaks, including a top score of 69, while Karanis’s best break was a 50. Udycz’s highest break in the tournament was an impressive 107, and his dominant play cemented his status as the clear favorite going into the final.
Udycz’s win is a testament to his
remarkable consistency over the years. This was his 29th final in 32 years of competing, and no player got close to him in the tournament. Speaking after the match, Udycz credited his success to his improved form, stating that he is currently playing the best he ever played.
The match was expertly scored by Roger Davey, with Tad Babiak serving as the referee. Mark Potter ran the tournament over the weekend, and SnookerSA provided a fantastic venue and playing conditions.
Overall, Udycz’s victory was a well-deserved one, and he stands as  the most successful Billiards players in South Australia’s history. His impressive form and dominance in the tournament are sure to inspire future generations of
billiards players in the State.

History Maker !

Jason YU


Jason Yu defeating Peter Udycz
5 – 3 in a very entertaining Final
Jason became the first player to win the Challenger Snooker League and the Championship League Snooker. What make this achievement even better is he did it in consecutive seasons and all by the grand old age of 14 !!!!!
Peter Udycz got off to a great start in the match winning the first two frames with breaks of 36 and 40.At this point it looked all one way traffic.
Jason settled and started scoring heavier with his oppotunities and with breaks of 34,42,39 and 30 won four frames on the bounce to lead 4 – 2. Peter refused to lay down and won the 8th frame but Jason held his nerve to win a close last frame.

Jason has had a fantastic 12 months winning Junior State titles and National titles in Snooker and 8 Ball,as well as the Presidents Cup Billiards and his 2 Snooker league wins. He also represented Australia at the World snooker Championships. What next for this genuine superstar of cue sports?
Not the best week for Peter losing the Billiards teams final on Monday night and the Snooker Wednesday. But this legend of a player keeps making and winning finals. Watch out the State Billiards is fast approaching.

Ian Chappell Invitational Snooker
Such an honour to have an Australian Sporting icon at SnookerSA yesterday.
Ian was so generous with his time, opening the competition, chatting with the players, getting photos taken, watching matches and even managed to get a coaching lesson from James Giannaros. But the highlight of the day was the rousing talk he gave before the tournament started, motivating all the players for the day.
It was a great event which was won by Mark Potter. This was Mark’s second victory following on from the Presidents Cup.
A close second was Tanurag Gautam and Third was Australian junior Snooker Jason Yu.
Tyson Crinis had the highest break in the round-robin with 88 and in the finals Jason Yu made 72 clearance a new match PB.
The plate event was won by Tom Arnold with Tyson Crinis coming second.

2022 President Cup
Congratulations Champion Jason YU and Plate Winner Ben Zawko
Billiards a traditionalist game from a past generation, had an awesome result for it’s resurrection today. Both events were won by BSASA junior players Jason Yu and Ben Zawko.
Jason played exceptionally well defeating legendary SA Billiard player Peter Udycz in the group stage. Then beat reining SA State Champion Arthur Karanis in the semi-final and in winning the final defeated the defending Champion Nes Fernandez. Jason is only 13 years old!! Fantastic achievement today.
18-year-old Ben Zawko came home strong, claiming his biggest scalp to date in his semi with Peter Udycz. The match ended in a tie and Ben won in overtime by 1 point. He continued this form into the final, holding his nerve in another close match with veteran cueist Phil Reilly Jnr.

Another great day at SnookerSA.

Congratulations Mohan Gurung
Mohan has been playing excellent all year and today he was at his most dominant best.
He won his semi-final group and finished 100 points clear of Peter Udycz in second place in the final. Altho Mohan won a comfortable winner the race for second was much closer with only 32 points separating the next 4 positions.
Peter 2nd, John Molnar 3rd, Peter Woods 4th and Jason Yu 5th.
The Plate event was won by Mark Potter.
Claiming his maiden victory. Mark has had a rapid rise in form this year, but this is down to hard work and wanting to improve. It’s nice to see him getting a reward for all the effort he is putting in.
Pradip Ghimire was 2nd, Mike Whellans 3rd and Allan Murphy 4th.
Roll on the Billiards Tomorrow.

Col Conlan
2022 Adelaide Senior Billiards & Snooker League
Col played out a great final against Nes Fernandez.
These two players,played each other in the last game of the season with Nes winning 2-1.
A week later the final started with the one-hour Billiards match in which Billiards star Nes started favourite. There was an incredible outcome with Col potting a tough red with the last shot of the game to tie the game 176 points each. This was the first tie of the season and a massive advantage for Col going into the two Snooker frames, with Snooker Col’s strongest discipline.
Col played very solid in the two frames giving very little away and taking both frames for a 2.5 – .5 victory and the Champions trophy.
Great effort from Nes making the final from a very strong field of players.
Warren Reynolds finished the season very strong after a slow start beating Roger Davey 2 -1 in the 3rd place play-off.
SnookerSA would like to thank all the players who took part in this great league.
Looking forward to the 2023 league
