CHI (APP) - Pakistan's Saleh Muhammad returned here on Tuesday after fetching US$4000 in Sangsom 6-Red International Snooker Championship held in Bangkok (Thailand) through his outstanding showing in a mega professional event.
"It was a great honour to play alongside world's top professional cueists," he said. "Reaching the pre-quarters of 6-Red ball snooker was satisfactory," he said.
"Playing in such major professional event was a great exposure and experience for me. 6-red ball snooker is really exciting and thrilling because of its unpredictability," he said.
However, Saleh said he was looking forward for even better show in future.
"Reaching the world snooker in China, compiling the break of 147 in Asia Snooker and reaching pre-quarters of professional event are equally memorable for me," he maintained.
Saleh said he fetched US$4000 for his performance including US$2000 for smashing fastest maximum break of 75 against Mike Dunn of England in two minutes and 54 seconds besides $1000 for reaching the pre-quarterfinals and $1000 for allowances.
He said he wanted to bring more glory and honor for the country and his good performances in Thailand made him a popular player there.
"I enjoy playing there because it bring best out of me," he said. Saleh Muhammad said he feels nice that Stuart Bingham, who he had defeated in the league round eventually reached the final and lost to Ricky Walden.
