Davis stuns Robertson to defend Six Reds crown

Mark DavisMARK Davis remained the king of snooker’s shortest form of the game after he was crowned Six Reds World Champion for the second year running.

World number 17 Davis collected the £40,000 cash prize and kept hold of the trophy he won last year after defeating world number one Neil Robertson 8-4 earlier today (Saturday).

Robertson, who earlier this season won the Wuxi Classic, had the better start out of the two players winning three out of the first four frames.

But Davis fought back in impressive style winning seven of the remaining eight frames to win his third Six Reds title of his career after winning the tournament back in 2009 and again last year.

Earlier in the tournament, Davis beat Mark Selby to reach to the grand final and prior to that gained victories against Dechawat Poomjaeng (Last 32), John Higgins (Last 16) and Noppon Saengkham in the quarter-finals.

Davis secured a third place finish in Group A  of the first round/round robin stage to book his place in the last 32.

Davis will hope to take his winning form back into the normal format of the game when he faces Ali Carter in the first round of the Shanghai Masters starting Monday, September 16.
