Robbo conquers the Polish crown
Neil Robertson obtained a crystal clear victory of 4-0 over the Welshman Mark Williams in tonight's final of the 2015 Gdynia Open.

The Australian player is no stranger from "victories made in Poland", his record showing that in 2011 he beat Ricky Walden to conquer the Warsaw Classic title, followed by the 2012 Gdynia Open where he defeated Scotland's Jamie Burnett.

However, all the above are not as important as the fact that the 2011 world champion has just put an end to a trophy drought that lasted since June 2014 (when Robbo won the Wuxi Classic) up until a few minutes ago.

The final of this year's Gdynia Open, although far from a genuine snooker thriller, was still a display of excellent snooker.

Willo was outplayed
Robertson opened with a break of 65, followed by a 46 in the second frame to go 2-0 up, before Williams could have an honest-to-God chance to make a difference.

Frame three kicked off with an early mistake from Robbo, this time the Welshman making the most of his chances. Still, he missed a tricky red down on 67 (sooo close to win this frame), this leaving a life-line for his opponent.

What happened in the next minutes was a genuine steal, but a stylish one nonetheless. Robertson cleared with a break of 63 to win the third frame of the match on the black. This was looking ominous!

The lads posing with the trophy
The last frame was captured with a great 109 break, the best way to seal a victory and win yourself some well-deserved silverware. Robertson is Poland's champion once more!

At the end of the day, Robertson played no less than 24 frames recording victories of 4-3 against Oliver Lines and Judd Trump and 4-2 against the 2014 Gdynia Open champion, Shaun Murphy.

The snooker marathon, because I hope you know that March will be a busy, busy month (check the schedule here) continues tomorrow in Blackpool where we meet with the seniors of the green baize for the World Seniors Championship.
