With a narrow two-rack margin, “Dynamite” Darren Appleton has won the World 10-Ball Championship in Manila, Philippines, held this past week. His 13-11 victory over former 8- and 9-ball champion Chia-Ching Wu earned him a tidy $100,000 payday, with Wu taking him $40,000.

Appleton was able to capitalize on an early 3-0 by converting it into a 10-5 lead in the extended race to 13. Though Wu began making a comeback at that point, Appleton already had enough steam built up to pass the finish line and win 13-11.

This title is the second world title in billiards that England has taken home within the course of a year. The first went to Daryl Peach, also a competitor in the World 10-Ball Championship, when he won the World Pool 9-Ball Championships over Roberto Gomez.
