Ken Doherty Edges Past Debutant Tyson Crinis in Mr Vegas World Seniors Snooker Championship Opener

Posted : 10 May 2024

In the opening skirmish of the Mr Vegas World Seniors Snooker Championship, Ken Doherty, a former World champion, confronted a formidable challenge from debutant Tyson Crinis. The encounter unfolded as a gripping spectacle, with Doherty ultimately emerging triumphant, thereby sustaining his aspirations of clinching his inaugural Mr Vegas World Seniors Snooker Championship title. Alongside Doherty, three other contenders—James Wattana, Stuart Watson, and Igor Figueiredo—marked their presence in the quarter-finals during the event's pulsating inauguration.


Venturing into the Crucible Theatre with a quest to etch his name in snooker's annals by completing an unprecedented grand slam, the Irishman, Ken Doherty, sought to augment his illustrious career by annexing the World Seniors crown to his existing array of accolades, comprising the World Professional, World Amateur, and World Junior titles.


Doherty's inaugural adversary in the tournament, the 41-year-old Tyson Crinis, secured a berth at snooker's hallowed grounds on the back of his triumph in the Asia-Pacific Seniors Championship earlier in the year. Despite grappling with nerves, evident even in his entrance to the arena, Crinis displayed mettle by claiming the nervy opening frame, injecting an element of uncertainty into the clash.


Undeterred by the early setback, the 1997 World champion showcased resilience, orchestrating a comeback to draw parity before clinching a pivotal third frame with a remarkable display of snooker prowess. Reflecting on the encounter post-match, Doherty acknowledged his initial rustiness, attributing his victory to a blend of composure and determination. As he looks ahead to the quarter-finals, Doherty remains cognizant of the arduous path ahead, cognizant that his next opponent will emerge from the showdown between Darren Morgan, the 2011 World Seniors champion, and Thailand's Dechawat Poomjaeng.
