POOL partners Rabih Malaki and Dean Morgan have pocketed a place in the last 16 of the Chalk Farm Pool League’s much-coveted doubles championships after chalking up impressive back-to-back wins at the Hurricane Room in King’s Cross on Monday night.

The Peckwater TA duo from Kentish Town were among the stand-out performers as a record-breaking 128 players took part in the competition.

Competing in a best-of-three format, Malaki and Morgan showcased their title-winning credentials from the off as they knocked out pre-tournament favourites Danny Fry and Dean Daly from Boston Arms after holding their nerve to secure a memorable victory.

Buoyed by the win, they then repeated the victorious scoreline as they saw off Matt Francois and Richard Evans from the Golden Lion to firmly establish themselves as the ones to watch when the competition gets back under way in February.
