Badami was also in complete control against Murali A. Krishnan (-25) of Chembur Gymkhana.
Kamal Chawla (-200 handicap) of Railways and Hasan Badami (-185 handicap) of Cricket Club of India made light of their high handicaps and quite comfortably won their respective second round matches.
The tall lanky Railway cueist Chawla with some steady play warmed up for the sterner test ahead as he sidelined Dadar Club’s Luv Boricha (-60) coasting to a fluent 200-162 points victory in the race-to-200 points second round match of the Bombay Gymkhana Handicap Billiards Tournament, and played at the Bombay Gymkhana billiards hall.
Badami was also in complete control against Murali A. Krishnan (-25) of Chembur Gymkhana. The CCI player grabbed every chance to make small but decent breaks as he went on to wipe out his handicap and then gradually seized the lead before closing out the match, winning by a 200-165 points margin.
