India’s most successful cueist, Pankaj Advani, bagged his 14th world title on Sunday, when he won the IBSF World Billiards Championship here.

Thirty-year-old Advani exhibited complete mastery over the three-ball game, demolishing Singapore’s Peter Gilchrist by 1168 points.

After lifting his 14th world crown, Advani said, “I was determined to get even with Peter (Gilchrist) after losing the point format final to him. A productive chat with my sports psychologist brother Shree and a good night’s sleep did the trick. We discussed my strategies and mental approach the night before the big final and it all panned out perfectly.”

The final score was Pankaj Advani 2408 beat Peter Gilchrist 1240.
