Cracker-Jack

Jack Lisowski

Jack Lisowski won the eighth and final event on the Pontin's Open International Series to top the rankings and set a new record for points gathered over the season.

The gifted 18-year-old from Churchdown beat Justin Astley 6-1 in the final in Prestatyn, compiling breaks of 89, 68 and 83.

Lisowski also won the first event of the series and finished the campaign with 1140 points, breaking the previous record set by Kuldesh Johal.

It's the icing on the cake for the Gloucestershire cueman, who suffered from Hodgkin's Lymphoma just two years ago but battled bravely to beat that disease, and has now taken a leap forward in his snooker career, helped by his place on World Snooker's Paul Hunter Scholarship scheme.

The top eight in the PIOS rankings will now be nominated for a place on the 2010/11 professional circuit, which would give them the chance to qualify for the sport's top venues.

Liam Highfield (19) finished second after making the early running and leading the PIOS rankings race midway through the season. Scotlandís Anthony McGill (19) and Englandís Kyren Wilson (18) make up an impressive quartet of young guns among the top eight.

Paul Davison also won two events in finishing third, with Jamie OíNeill sixth, Justin Astley seventh and Jamie Jones eighth.
