Dominated Finals

The Guri International 9-Ball Championship 2017 concluded its last matches at the Guri Gymnasium in Korea on 16/10 (local time), with the Filipinos and Taiwanese dominating the last day of the tournament.  Rubilen Amit (PHI) and Liu Cheng-Chieh (TPE) finished in style after beating Wei Tzu-Chien (TPE) and Johann Chua (PHI) in their respective matches.  On top of their championship vases, both the men and the women champion went home Korean Won ₩30,000,000 (≃ US$26,600) richer, while the 1st runner-ups pocketed ₩15,000,000 (≃ US$13,300) each.  Local Koreans also performed well with players making it into the semi-finals in both the men and the women divisions.

It must have been tough for the Taiwanese when he came 2nd twice this year at the CBSA Int'l 9-ball and the World Universiade.  Fortunately, he was able to keep a cool mind during the hill-hill thriller against Chua, the 2015 All-Japan champion, who saw off his fellowman Jeffrey Ignacio in the semi-final.  Kwon HoJun of Korea, an apprentice of the legendary Kim GaYoung, finished in joint 3rd places together with Ignacio.

Ansen Lo of Hong Kong might have provided one of the highlights in this tour when he almost took down Chang Jun-Lin, the current world #1, in the first round of the single elimination stage.  Lo was leading through the whole match but saw his hand turning tight when he reached the hill.  Chang made his way back and eventually won it by 11-10, leaving the young kid with a good lesson.  However, Chua proved to be the better man when he was up against Chang in the quarter finals.  China did not send any players this time...

Rubilen Amit roared

To compensate for Chua's loss, Amit, the two times world 10-ball champion, claimed the women's title for the Phillippines by beating Wei 9-2 in the final.  Amit had an realatively easy ride while Wei had to clear off the current world #1 Chen SiMing of China in the quarters before meeting her comrade the 3 times Amway Cup champion Rita Chou.  Korea's Park EunJi joined in 3rd places after losing to Amit in a close decider.

Five of the China girls made it into single elimination stage.  The triple and reigning world champion Liu ShaSha failed to Chen SiMing in the derby during the last 16...
