Shahram Changezi, one of the most accomplished all-round cueists of Pakistan, added another feather to his cap by winning the recently concluded Texas Open Snooker Championship 2023 held in Houston, USA. 

The highly gifted decorated snooker, billiards and pool player once again made the nation in general and his institution National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) in particular proud by clinching the trophy in Texas. 

The event took place at the Q Billiards Hall in Houston and some of the top players from USA and other countries participated in it. 

Shahram overwhelmed Raed Shabib of Iraq in quarter-final before toppling Joey Torres of USA in semifinal and then outwitting India’s Ahmed Rauf 3-1 in the title clash to capture the trophy. 

Besides winning the championship, the Islamabad-based Shahram also earned the distinction of registering the highest break (89) of the keenly contested competition. 

On his same tour of USA, he also participated in the American 9-Ball Pool League in which 128 cueists from different parts of the world entered to showcase their skills and obtain a share in the prizemoney. He successfully demonstrated his skillset in 9-Ball Pool as well to secure third position.

Shahram's brilliant performance during his recent trip to USA should serve as a morale-booster for the talented Pakistani cueists who have the eagerness to compete in international competitions.
