Stuart Bingham played brilliantly to win the 2012 Pink Ribbon Pro Am at South West Snooker Academy
Stuart Bingham became the third Pink Ribbon Champion after a blistering display of potting and break building throughout the event.
The Australian Open Champion started his season in fine style, lifting the superb Pink Ribbon trophy and a cheque for £2,400 after beating Peter Lines 4-0 in the final.
Bingham fired in breaks of 103 and 131, followed by 50 to leave Lines with too much to do.
Earlier Bingham had set out with a 4-1 win over Amateur Qualifier Chris Wakelin, with breaks of 70, 58 and 53.
He stroked in a 121 in a closely fought 4-3 win over Mark Davis in the Last 32.
Having beaten Alfie Burden 4-1 in the Last 16, Bingham overcame Gerard Greene 4-0 in the quarter finals.
An amazing display of break building left Mark Allen pinned in his chair in the semi final. Bingham rattled up a 140 total clearance and followed that up with 92 and 114 to book his place in the final.
Allen had done his fair share of scoring prior to the semi final.
He opened his Pink Ribbon campaign with 102 in beating Hammad Miah 4-0.
Jamie Clarke, who was the event's best amateur, reaching the Last 16, was on the receiving end of a 113 by Allen, who then knocked in 112 and 137 as he beat Ben Woollaston 4-0 in the quarter final.
Allen generously donated his £800 prize money to the Breast Cancer Fund Raising.
Peter Lines proceeded ruthlessly through the draw beating John Halliwell 4-1, Liam Highfield 4-3, Jamie O'Neill 4-1, before ending the run of defending champion Mark Joyce in the quarter finals with a 4-2 win.
Lines went on to beat Andy Hicks 4-1 in the semi final.
The best breaks of the weekend were 140 by Stuart Bingham and Barry Pinches. The best break by an amateur was 138 by David Donovan.
