Maflin and Jans top World Snooker

Kurt Maflin from Norway and Wendy Jans from Belgium came out on top at the IBSF World Snooker Championships.

Maflin beat Daniel Ward (England) 11-8 in the men's final while Jans whitewashed Wan-Ip In (Hong Kong) 5-0. Both winners were undefeated throughout the tournament.

A Main Tour spot was on offer to the winner of the men's event. That means Maflin will compete against the top pros in the 2007/2008 season. This will be his second stint on the world's major snooker tour.

Keith E Boon (Singapore) had the highest break of the tournament with a magnificent 147.

Pakistan's Mohammad Yousuf won the title in the Masters (Over 40s) division. He beat Glen Wilkinson from Australia 5-4 in the final.

The event was held 5-15 November in the Regency Palace, Amman, Jordan.
