PTC6 (Warsaw Classic) Day 3 - Robertson Succeed in Poland

Come to the last day of PTC6 (Warsaw Classic), a winner is produced and he is Neil Robertson. Robertson captured his first ranking title PTC6 after winning World Open last September.
Robertson won PTC6 in a superb form
Robertson was in unbeatable form today and has won two consecutive deciders against Stephen Maguire and Shaun Murphy before whitwashing Stephen Lee in the semi-finals. Robertson made three centuries 114, 113 and 103 in four high standard matches. he played in. The Thunder From Under eventually saw off Ricky Walden in the final by 4-1 with 95, 76 and 69 to capture PTC6 title as well as pocketed 10000 euro for the first prize. 

Robertson edged out Maguire in decider
Robertson is delighted with his win carrying ranking points that helped me to move to world number four, ''I had been on a good run of form recently with a couple of semi-finals and I was really disappointed to lose in the semis of the Shanghai Masters. That was a wake up call because you have to be efficient in the final stages of tournaments. It's all about winning them because that's what you'll be remembered for. So I'm really pleased to convert this one.''

Snooker grows rapidly in Poland
Robertson is pleased with the Poland crowd too and hope Poland will hold a ranking event very soon: "That makes it easier to play because it gives you a buzz, and hopefully the people who came will go away with good memories. In Germany it took a few years for the support to grow and now we have a full ranking event there, so hopefully something similar can happen in Poland."

Runner-up Ricky Walden beaten Steve Davis 4-3 in the semi-finals coming from 2-3 down. Although The Nugget lost in semi-finals and nearly reached to play the final but he gave us surprises today. Davis won the marathon 4-3 lasted four hours agaisnt Mark King in the last 16 before heading to the quarter-finals with Jack Lisowski. The Nugget only had a very short period of time to rest but he still came through to beat Liswoski 4-3. The marvellous run of the legend was ended by Walden 3-4. Steve has been the perfect ambassador for the game for over 30 years, and long may it continue.
