Iran's Soheil Vahedi wins IBSF World Snooker

November 29, 2016

Soheil Vahedi won the IBSF World Championship after a fantastic 8-1 victory over Andrew Pagett in Doha, Qatar on Tuesday.

Vahedi becomes the second Iranian to capture the most prestigious amateur title after compatriot Hossein Vafaei Ayouri’s success in 2011.

The triumph will also mean a likely invitation onto the professional Main Tour for the upcoming two campaigns.

Vahedi didn’t give Pagett, who has had four stints on the pro circuit himself, much of a chance in a one-sided final showdown.

The 27 year-old won the first three frames before the Welshman finally got on the board with a run of 69 – but that was as good as it got for Pagett.

Breaks of 57, 81, 55 and 63 ensured that Vahedi romped to a win which will be regarded as a relatively big surprise, snookerhq.com wrote.

For Vahedi, after easily dispatching of Dubliner Michael Judge in the quarter-finals, he ended the wonderful run of Northern Ireland’s Declan Brennan in the last four in a nail-biting decider.
