Robert Williams after three wins and a spread of 81 was adjudged the best player in the top ten while Anand Mohabir was second in the top ten. Belony in his address said he was pleased to have their East Coast Demerara counterparts participating in the competition.

The four top finishers along with the two top ten received monetary incentives for their performance.

According to him, while East Coast players have participated in competitions in the past, they usually don’t so in large numbers. Of the seventeen participants five were from the East Coast of Demerara.

Belony went on to say that as part of the 2013 programme the association will be moving to set up a club on the East Coast.
