India's poster boy of cue sports Pankaj Advani clinched his 13th world title, winning the World 6-Red Snooker Championship convincingly in Karachi.
The defending champion outplayed China's Yan Bingtao 6-2 in the final to stamp his authority on the green baize.
The Bangalore cueist raced to a 3-0 lead in the best-of-11 final, but the Chinese found form and ran away with the next two frames with the help of a 66 break.
In no mood to give anything away, Advani did not allow his opponent to score a single point in the next two frames.
He then fired in a massive 71 break in the seventh frame to go within a frame from defending the title he won in Egypt last year.
In the final frame, Bingtao took a healthy 28-5 lead, but missed was his final shot of the tournament, allowing Advani to clear the table with finesse.
A 35 break saw the Indian ace clear the table and add another feather in his ever-glowing cap.
The final scores: Pankaj Advani (India) defeated Yan Bingtao (China) 6-2: 37-21, 57(30)-0, 32-29, 0-66(66), 6-38(37), 48-0, 75(71)-0, 40(35)-28.
