Anthony Xavier from Guyana captured the award for the Most Outstanding Player in the Tobago Leg of the tour.
The Guyana Team played exceptionally well since they were at a major disadvantage due to the games being played on 9 feet tables and Guyana does not have any 9 feet table said the Team Manager, Mr. Ryan Baksh. He also went onto say that they were up against a Country whose pool level was far ahead of us with players traveling to different countries playing Pool Professionally for many years. He said he is proud of his team and its accomplishments for putting up a fight against fierce competition and to draw the series 2-2.
Mr. Baksh also said that the Trinidad Team will be visiting Guyana for their tour of Guyana in May 2020.
