BEN PLAYER IS THE 2013 IBA WORLD CHAMPION!


  AUSTRALIA-  Ben Player has been declared the 2013 IBA Men's World Champion.  Following the cancellation of the Grand Slam Series world tour finale at Fronton (Gran Canaria, Spain), Player remained tied with 2010 World Champion Amaury Lavernhe (Reunion Island) at 5900 points each.  To break the tie, IBA Pty Ltd referred to section 1.18 of IBA Points Allocation in the IBA Rule Book which states in 1.18.06, "Ties will be broken on completion of the tour in the same manner as ties are broken in heat tabulation.  If a tie is unable to be broken in this manner only then will the past year's tour standing be used to break a tie."  With the 2013 title, Ben Player is now a 3x World Champion.
