WORLD snooker champion Jessica Woods left yesterday's Australian National Women's Snooker Championships victorious.
The New South Wales woman defeated Kathy Parashisntscorrectnte 4-0 in the final of the three-day Launceston tournament.
Northern Tasmania Eight Ball Association secretary Andrew Saltmarsh said the exciting game was finished in a relatively quick two hours.
Some games in the semi-finals ran for up to five hours.
``(Woods) knocked in a 50 break in the third frame, which is a reasonably high break,'' Saltmarsh said.
Launceston players Fiona Plummer and Jenna Sampson made it to the knock-out stage, an achievement commended by Saltmarsh.
Sampson finished on 3-1 and Plummer made it to 3-2.
The championship drew Plummer out of retirement and marked Sampson's first foray into Australian titles.
``Tassie is not that competitive compared to other states .th.th. they did a great job,'' he said.
Saltmarsh thanked the volunteers, sponsors and the Launceston Workers Club for their help. Twenty-four players competed in the championship.
