YoungShip Dubai's 2017 Pool Champion

Matt Herkes wins Dubai's 2017 pool tournament

YoungShip's 2017 pool tournament attracted 8 keen pool players, with skill levels ranging from 'pool shark' to 'goldfish bowl'. Our reigning champion Martin Lindemose, who deserves special thanks for organizing the event, was dethroned in group play, and soon the 8 contestants were down to two finalists, Matt Herkes and Mohamed Elhawawy. The best of three final was closely contested and threw up an upset as early favorite Mohamed was defeated 2:0, making Matt our pool champion! Congratulations to Matt, who took home a 200 AED gift card for Mall of the Emirates, and thanks to all who took part!
