James Mifsud's ability shone through last Sunday as he defeated Shawn Budd four frames to one in the final. I thought there were three standouts to win the qualifier for the Aust. Snooker Goldfieds Open scheduled for 18-24th July, my pics to win were in this order; Steve Mifsud, Vinnie Calabrese and Shawn Budd but I was proven wrong by the very consistent performance that James showed throughout the tournament.

My best wishes go the Steve and James Mifsud in the upcoming Aust. Snooker Goldfieds Open, two worthy Australian Representatives who join Australia's Neil Robertson, the current Worlds number 5 ranked snooker player and 2010 World Snooker Champion.
