Jamie Hunter defeated Chrissy Allwood 3-0 in the final to win the 2022 The Winchester English Women’s Snooker Open.
Hunter, who recently claimed the WWS US Open in Seattle, continued her fantastic form, not dropping a frame throughout the tournament and also making several sizeable breaks.
Sponsored and hosted by The Winchester venue in Leicester, the event began with a groups phase followed by the knockout rounds. Hunter won all three of her group games 2-0, registering runs of 65 and 86 in the process of coming top of Group A.
The 25-year-old Widnes cueist then eliminated Emma Powers-Richardson 2-0 in the quarter-finals, and crafted efforts of 50 and 90 – the highest break of competition – to end the run of Connie Stephens, 2-0, in the semi-finals.
Allwood was also impressive in reaching the final. The 36-year-old relinquished just a single frame en route, heading Group B before knockout victories over Sarah Dunn (2-0) and Chloe Payne (2-0) in the last eight and four respectively.
However, Hunter – who won consecutive national women’s tour events last season – added another EPSB title to her CV as she triumphed in the final, constructing a break of 50 in the opening frame.
The EPSB would like to thank all the players and officials that took part in the event, and to the hosts and tournament sponsors, The Winchester.
