Lim brings smiles but there could have been Moh

Lim Kok Leong brought smiles to the Malaysian camp when he checked into the snooker 6 reds singles final.

Kok Leong beat Thailand’s Suchakree Poomjang 5-2 in the semi-finals and was looking forward to an all-Malaysia final showdown with Moh Keen Hoo but the dream did not become a reality.

Keen Hoo failed to get past world amateur runner-up Jefrey Roda of the Philippines 5-4 in the other semi-finals.

Kok Leong and Keen Hoo have been preparing to defend their snooker doubles gold but their hopes were dashed by the hosts who dropped the event for the Hanoi Games.

“I feel happy to have reached the final although we don’t play in the 6 reds singles in tournamanents regularly.

“It could have been our gold if Keen Hoo had won,” said Kok leong.

“Roda will be the favourite in the final but I will give it my best shot. I have no pressure.”

Kok Leong and Keen Hoo will also play in the snooker singles which will begin on Thursday.
