Russell wins Bangalore Open

Russell wins Bangalore Open and makes it £50,000 for 1996. By winning the £5,000 first prize in his 7-1 defeat
of Peter Gilchrist, Russell becomes the biggest ever money winner in a year at Professional Billiards.

There was an entry of 31 including 4 new freshmen entries all from India. Chapman failed to really test Russell
although he did get to 3-2 from 3-0 down in the quarter finals. Of the Indian players Multani looks as though
he will get into the top eight in a year or two and Sethi has gone along way to ensuring a place for next season.

Of the current elite squad Williamson, Dagley (still not playing) and Close look likely to slip out and even Foldvari
could be an eventual casualty if he doesn’t start scoring.

PRIZE MONIES: Russell £5,000 Gilchrist £3,000 Causier and Joshi £2,300
Losing 1 /4 Finals £1,800 Losing Last 16 £1,100 Losing Last 32 £150
TOTAL PRIZE MONEY: £31,000
