Luca Brecel at 15 has become the youngest ever Belgian national champion.
Brecel defeated Bjorn Haneveer, who reached the last 32 of last season's China Open, 7-4 in the final.
He compiled a 136 total clearance to win the third frame and won the last having needed three snookers with five reds remaining.
Remarkably, Brecel had only started using a new cue last week.
Brecel, who won the European under 19 title last year, will represent his country in the European amateur championship in Bucharest later this week.
He is eligible to turn professional next year.
