World number 20 Chris Dobey lived up to his favourite billing by winning the group on Night 14 of the Unibet Home Tour.
The 29-year-old put himself in a commanding position early on, by beating Ciaran Teehan 5-2 in his opening game, before seeing off Ron Meulenkamp 5-1 in his second.
Going into the penultimate two games, Teehan needed a big win over Meulenkamp to give himself any chance of catching Dobey, but a 5-1 defeat to the Dutchman meant Dobey had sealed the group before his final game.
And in that final match he came up against a resurgent Kai Fan Leung, playing at gone 5am in Hong Kong, who took a narrow 5-4 victory.
