It's Ryan yet again


It was another great day for Ryan Marcus as he swept all before him in the Q.Club Annual New Years Day Handicap Competition. From a field of 33 the 14 year old Larne lad stormed to the Final where he faced Antrim's Kyle Kirkwood who was also in fine form all day.

But it was Ryan who won his second big event within 3 days claiming the top prize of £280 to add to the £420 he claimed on Friday.

With a £10 entry fee the pot was £330 but this was boosted to £530 by the Q.Club adding £200 to the overall fund. The tables were also on freeplay for the competition.
