UAE veterans dominate National Day Snooker semi-final line-up

posted on 17/12/2012: 1991 views

Mohamed Shehab led the march of UAE veterans into the semi-finals of the 41st National Day Snooker Championship at the Dubai Snooker Club with Jordanian Khaled Al Azzouni being the only surprise qualifier.

Shehab played like a maestro in registering a 5-1 quarter-final victory as young Khalid Kamali failed in a desperate attempt to match his wits.

Mohammed Al Joaker also fired on all cylinders as he routed on-song former Egypt No1 Mohammed Samy El Khayat 5-2, while Eissa Ali Sayed faced little resistance from Abdulrahman Saif before carding a 5-1 triumph. Al Azzouni, who had to go through the qualifying rounds to enter Stage 2 of the City Engineering-sponsored competition which offers Dh41,000 to the winner, whitewashed UAE No4 Mohammed Hussain 5-0.

Al Joaker's performance late on Saturday night was especially impressive as he cast aside all doubts over his sagging his form.

Al Joaker spent only 40 minutes to race to a massive 3-0 lead, making his intentions clear. El Khayat potted some good balls to take the fourth frame, but Al Joaker scored a break of 63 in the fifth to maintain his three-frame advantage.

The sixth frame was very close with El Khayat getting the better of his rival, but only through an excellent pot on the last black.

Al Joaker was, however, in no mood to allow El Khayat to recover and took the seventh frame with ease for a convincing 5-2 win.

In the semi-finals, Shehab will face Al Azzouni and Al Joaker will take on Sayed. - Sports 360°
