WEST FIFE pool player Liam Dunster has his eye on making the trip of a lifetime to compete in South Africa - but needs your help in getting him there.

The 26-year-old, who is number one in the IPA (International Professional Pool Association) world rankings, is hoping to earn one of two places at 'The Best v The Best' tournament in December.

Hosted by Panda's Cue Sport at Lake Umuzi, Africa's largest cue sport club based in Secunda, Mpumalanga, they are due to host singles and team competitions in blackball and eight ball between December 11-13.

'The Best v The Best' event will feature as part of a week-long pool festival and organisers are running an online poll, after which the top two players from 22 will make the trip.

At the time of writing, just 10 votes is keeping Liam, who turned professional in 2015, second in the poll, behind first-placed Scott Gillespie.

The latest standings are released every 24 hours.

Liam, from Inverkeithing, has enjoyed a number of successes at the table over the years, which has included pocketing World and European blackball titles.

He has continued to enjoy that winning feeling on the IPA tour and, in 2018, enjoyed one of the most satisfying results of his career to date.

Joining some of the globe's top players, Liam competed in the inaugural 'Supreme Pool Series', in which four events - two under blackball rules, and two under world eight ball rules - were played.

That was followed by a grand final, complete with a hybrid set of rules, which Liam - also the number one ranked player throughout the series - went on to win.

The poll will close at around 11pm on Monday.
