“Credit to my opponent Kamal [Chawla], he played some fantastic snooker in this tournament. I think he also had a tougher draw, so maybe I was just a little more fresh and relaxed before the final. He played some amazing players all the way till the final. So, congratulations Kamal,” a modest Advani said after collecting his crystal Champion’s trophy and a winner’s cheque of Rs 3 lakh. Chawla was presented with the runner-up trophy and a cheque of Rs 1.5 lakh.
