IT WAS an £850 payday for the top-eight ranked players in the 26-week Open Series 15 at Chandler’s Ford Snooker Club.

Meanwhile, Austen Petty compiled a personal best 64 break to wrap up a 3-1 victory over Luke Beebe in the week-two final of the new series.

The 15-year-old from Boyatt Wood now leads the rankings from week-one winner Pete Jordan, who posted his highest break of 26 against Luke’s dad, Mark.
