Mumbai’s Kreishh Gurbaxni enters next round in Billards national championshipJanuary 14, 2020, Mumbai
After finishing in the top-8 at the World Snooker Federation (WSF) Junior Open in Malta on Thursday, Mumbai’s Kreishh Gurbaxani landed in India and reached Pune on Saturday, before playing and winning his sub-junior billiards quarter-final encounter against Priyansh Jain at the National Billiards and Snooker Championship at the PYC Hindu Gymkhana in Pune on Sunday.
For the current state u-18 No 1 and national No 2, playing billiards is all about table-time which he requires just before his preferred event, the -red snooker, which commences on Tuesday.
The teenager from Mumbai, who represents Maharashtra, also faces an academic challenge as his Class 12 board exams are just over a month away. The final of this month-long tournament is scheduled to be played on February 9, 2020, nine days before Gurbaxani has to appear for his first exam.
