Filipino Billiards Stars Lead Asian Invasion of Predator International 10-Ball Championship
The awesome Filipino billiards stars will headline the far eastern countries of Japan, Korea, China, and India at the 9th Annual Predator International 10-Ball Championship. Sixteen players from Asia will be looking to take their portion of the prize purse. Ozone Billiards will be presenting this year’s lineup of 112 players along with top sponsor JBETpoker.net at the Riviera Hotel & Casino May 11-16,2009 during the BCAPL’s National 8-Ball Championships.
Former BCA Open Champion Dennis Orcullo and former Player of the Year Francisco Bustamante lead a stud filled crew of pinoys. Their elite group consists of Lee Van Corteza, Rodolfo Luat, Warren Kiamco, World 9-Ball Championship Finalist Roberto Gomez, legendary Jose Parica, Al Lapena, and World 9-Ball and US Open 9-Ball champ Alex Pagulayan. With a group that high in calibre, who can you pick as the favorite?
“Dennis (Orcullo) is the best player in the Philippines now. Nobody will gamble with him there, he’s beaten everyone so many times already all the stakehorses are scared to send a player against him. He practices daily like a machine”, said Gandy Valle, a top player from Bugsy Promotions of the Philippines.
If that wasn’t enough, Japan’s hard nosed champion Hiroshi Takenaka and giant killer Goh Takami, both of whom have beaten the likes of Johnny Archer, Shannon Daulton, and Thorsten Hohmann will be a tough draw. Kenichi Uchigak,i who knocked out Efren Reyes at the last World 9-Ball Championship, will also be looking to make some noise.
India’s Raj Hundal, who finished in the USA Pro rankings at #5 in 2008, will also be a dangerous threat with his rising, high impact game. WPBA #5 Yu Ram Cha of Korea will also be a hot ticket to watch. A rising female talent, she has already broken gender barriers with 1st place wins in men’s events such as the US Amateur 9-Ball Open and the Orlando Open.
