The Tamil Nadu Billiards & Snooker Association Open mainly draws players from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The nationally-ranked players didn't have it all their own way in this, 2nd seed Dilip Kumar (Railways & Tamil Nadu) lost in the Last 32 to local player Freddy. Freddy also beat Wasim Ahmed of Railways in the Last 16. Two of the nationally ranked players, Vijay Nichani and S.A. Saleem, met in the Last 16 with Saleem edging it 4 - 3.

Quarter finals

Rafath Habib (Railways & Tamil Nadu) 4 - 0 Himanshu Jain (Andhra Pradesh)
Peter Paul (Railways) 4 - 2 Panduranga Reddy (Andhra Pradesh)
Siddharth Rao (Madras Cricket Club) 4 - 3 Nadeem Ahmed (Tamil Nadu)
S.A. Saleem (Madras Cricket Club) 4 - 0 Freddy (New Pot Shot)

Semi finals
Rafath Habib (Railways & Tamil Nadu) 5 - 0 Peter Paul (Railways)

Rafath Habib (Railways & Tamil Nadu) 5 - 0 S.A. Saleem (Madras Cricket Club)

Quite a stunning performance by Rafath Habib, didn't drop frames in the Last 64 or Last 32 either, just a single frame lost all tournament - in the Last 16 against E Sundar Raj of Madras Cricket Club. Well done! :win:
