Mink Nutcharut claimed the Belgian Women’s Open title at the expense of home favourite Wendy Jans on Sunday in Bruges.
In what was a repeat of the last World Women’s Snooker Championship final, Mink came from a frame behind to beat Jans 4-1.
It was a dominant display from the young star from Thailand, who surrendered just one frame in the entire tournament at The Trickshot.
The reigning women’s world champion ousted Nikola Broyak in the last 16 before repeating the 3-0 scoreline in the quarter-finals against Emma Parker.
Arguably the most impressive result for Mink came in the last four when she thumped Reanne Evans 4-0 to reach the Belgian Women’s Open final.
Despite going behind early on in the title decider, the 23 year-old didn’t let it phase her and she proceeded to win the subsequent four frames for victory.
It represents back-to-back successes for Mink after her triumph in the Eden Women’s Masters at the end of November.
Jans, a multiple-time women’s world champion at IBSF level, had reached the final with triumphs over Tessa Davidson, Mary Talbot-Deegan, and Rebecca Kenna.
Defending champion Ng On Yee crashed out in the last eight after a tight 3-2 reverse to England’s Kenna.
A busy 2022/23 World Women’s Snooker calendar continues next week with the Asia-Pacific Women’s Championship in Sydney, Australia.
In February, the Women’s World Cup and the flagship World Women’s Snooker Championship will also take place in Thailand.
