Ace Indian cueist Pankaj Advani has won the World Billiards Point Format Championship. In the final at Leeds, United Kingdom on Friday. Advani outplayed Singapore’s Peter Gilchrist, 6-2 to bag his 11th individual World title and third of the year in different formats of the game.
Advani, who trailed 1-2, won five frames on the trot to regain the title he had last won in 2012.
