Laxman Rawat of Bombay Gymkhana claimed the top honours in the ECC All India Open 6-Red Snooker Tournament 2018. The dapper Laxman found the going easy and smoothly sailed past Mohd Hissain Khan of Railway by a convincing 6-1 margin in the final match at the Elphinstone Cricket Club billiards room. Potting freely and quite accurately Laxman was in complete control and with some clever steady play romped to victory. The Railway cueist Khan was unable to get going and could not put up much of fight.

Laxman won a close first frame but then rolled in a break of 35 to the win the second and also pocketed the third to race away to a 3-0 lead. Khan showed signs of fighting back when he took the fourth to cut the deficit, but he once again went into a shell as Rawat won the next three to wrap up the match and complete a satisfying 32-27, 41-28, 43-14, 5-37, 36-13, 53-16 and 47-36 victory.
