DAN EATON LEES was the star of Monday night’s 2022 Vinny Ultimate Pool Champions League as he came through a tough group five to qualify for the next stages.
The former Champion of Champion’s singles winner who qualified from the first Ultimate Pool Challenger Series last year to turn pro made a golden break on his way to claiming the group which comprised the likes of the youngest player to become World Pool Champion Carl Morris, and the Legend Ronan McCarthy.
Qualifier Lee Washbrook struggled as he said he had not played much as he had been focusing on setting up a new recruitment business in recent weeks.

Eaton Lees’s sledgehammer break is his forte, and he managed a golden break during his three matches to qualify.
Legend Ronan McCarthy also made a golden break, as did Carl Morris.
Eaton Lees joins new Ultimate Pro Event 2 winner Chris Melling, Tom Cousins, Jack Whelan, and 2021 Ultimate Pool no 1 Shane Thompson into the final stages.
This event can be seen EVERY MONDAY NIGHT on Freesports in the UK, just like the Ultimate Pool Pairs Cup.
