bin there, done that

Bin 8-BallBin Singh finally popped his 8-Ball cherry on Sunday.

Bin was representing Joiners Arms in their first division clash against Perkins Cue. The Joiners were playing at home so a few of the locals were able to witness history being made.

His clearance of the table was made in the first half of the match and Bin was promptly dropped from the home side's line-up for the second half! In fact, it was one of two 8-balls produced by the home team on the night but, to no avail, as the Cue team claimed a 6-2 victory.

Martin Priestley, his victim, was very gracious in defeat and even posed with Bin for a celebratory photo (see desktop website).

So, congratulations to Bin on his achievement and other players should also feel free to send in photos of themselves claiming their first career 8-Balls.
