Advani beat Robert Hall of England with a score of 1928 – 893 in a lacklustre final. Earlier in a nail biting semi-final Pankaj Advani had to draw upon his experience and hold his nerves to beat David Causier of England, by a mere 5 points.

In this way, Pankaj Advani has also vindicated his decision to take a break from his professional snooker commitments and his performance indicates that he has the ability to manage both forms of the game.
