A FORMER world champion pool player who challenged the people of Times Territory to a match in June - and lost - is back for more today (Friday) and tomorrow.

Carl 'Houdini' Morris, who is profoundly deaf, took on hundreds at the Galleria, in Hatfield.

However the ace, who was raising cash for Hearings Dogs for Deaf People via a minimum donation of £5, lost to six of the 'average Joes' who challenged him.

Now he and his friends are back at the Comet Way outlet centre for revenge!

Your chance to challenge the stars will be from 10am until 6pm today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday), again for a minimum donation of £5.

Shoppers will also be able to see Carl perform spectacular trick pots and shots.
