Karachi:  India's poster boy of cue sports Pankaj Advani on Tuesday clinched his 13th world title after winning the World 6-Red Snooker Championship in a convincing manner. 

Defending champion Advani outplayed Chinese Yan Bingtao 6-2, stamping his authority on the green baize in the final. 

The final started off with a bang with the Bangalore cueist racing to a rapid 3-0 lead in the best-of-11 final. But the Chinese found his form and ran away with the next two frames with the aid of a 66 break. 

In no mood to give anything away, Advani did not allow his opponent to score a single point in the next two. He fired in a massive 71 break in the seventh frame to be one frame away from defending his title which he won in Egypt last year. 

In the final frame, Bingtao took a healthy 28-5 lead before missing what was going to be his final shot of the tournament as Advani cleared the table with finesse. A 35 break saw the Indian ace adding another feather in his ever-glowing crown. 

Final: Pankaj Advani (India) defeated Yan Bingtao (China) 6-2: 37-21, 57(30)-0, 32-29, 0-66(66), 6-38(37), 48-0, 75(71)-0, 40(35)-28.
