Orcullo gets back at Biado, bags 9-Ball title
Reynaldo Belen, InterAKTV · Tuesday, October 11, 2011 · 12:10 am

Dennis Orcullo showed up-and-coming star Carlo Biado exactly why he was ranked the No. 1 player in the world.

The veteran cue artist had a chance to live up to his ranking as he exacted revenge over the man who defeated him twice in their two previous meetings.

The reigning World 8-Ball champion came back from 6-3 down before completing a come-from-behind 11-8 victory over Biado in Monday’s finals of the BSCP National Pool Championship 9-Ball event at the Star Billiards Center in Quezon City.

Orcullo’s victory came a day after Biado captured his first-ever national pool title, winning the 8-Ball division.

In winning the 9-Ball division, the man known in the international billiard circuit as “The Robocop” made the race for the grand championship a two-way battle between him and the rising star from Pangasinan.

Orcullo and Biado are also in the semifinals of the 10-Ball event joining former national junior champion Jerico Banares and Overseas Filipino Worker Alan Cuartero.

Both champions already won the top prize of P50,000 for topping their respective events, and one of them could bring home the P200,000 prize at stake for the grand championship.

Nevertheless, the two players competing under the stable of businessman/sportsman Perry Mariano’s Bugsy’s Promotions are already assured of spots in the World Pool Summit.

The World Pool Summit is the final World Pool-Billiard Association ranking event to be held in Manila next month.

“Advantage sa akin si Carlo kasi mas gamay na niya yung mesa dahil una siyang lumaro ng finals sa akin,” said Orcullo. “Naghintay lang ako ng tamang pagkakataon kaya nu’ng nagkaroon ako ng tsansa, kinuha ko na agad.”

“Malaki ang improvement ni Carlo ngayong taon, kasi nasanay na rin siyang kalaban yung malalakas. Unti-unti na siyang nakakatuntong sa kinalalagyan namin,” added Orcullo.

A former caddie, Biado has defeated Orcullo twice over the past five months. The young player eliminated his more experienced rival in the quarterfinals of the World Ten Ball Championship last May, then duplicated the victory with a win in the semifinals of the 8-Ball event of the National Pool Championship.

Until the ninth rack, Biado was again ready to deliver the knockout blow against Orcullo, until a dry break in the 10th changed the complexion of the match.

Orcullo won seven of the next eight racks before Biado stopped the bleeding with a run-out in the 18th rack to inch closer, 8-10.

But the world’s best player wasn’t to be denied this time as he completed his comeback and added the 9-Ball crown of this event to his growing collection of pool titles.

Cuartero bags 10-Ball crown, but Biado is grand National Pool champion
Reynaldo Belen, InterAKTV · Tuesday, October 11, 2011 · 10:01 pm

Alan Cuartero ended years of frustration playing on home soil as he finally nailed his first National Pool Championship, winning the 10-Ball event over Carlo Biado in convincing fashion, 11-2, on Tuesday at the Star Billiards Center.

Just two days ago, it was Biado who ran roughshod over Cuartero, winning the 8-Ball finals convincingly, 9-3.

But it was sweet revenge for Cuartero, who came through with a dominating performance in claiming his first title in a major tournament. On top of the title, the house pro from Kuwait bagged the P50,000 prize.

The 10-Ball finale was a reversal of the outcome Sunday as Cuartero kept his rival sitting on his stool for most of the match.

The veteran cue artist from Surigao arrived early for a few hours of extra practice, hoping not to repeat his disastrous showing in the 8-Ball finals. It paid off instantly as he quickly turned the final into a one-sided affair, drawing first blood and pouncing on a missed shot by Biado on the way to a commanding 5-0 lead.

“Yung missed shot sa No. 4 ang dahilan kung bakit siya nakalayo. Ideally, palitan sana ng puntos eh, kaso nakalayo agad siya dahil sa sablay. Kung nagpalitan kaagad kami ng puntos, hindi siya lalayo sana agad at maiiba yung takbo ng laro,” said Biado, the 27-year-old pride of Pangasinan.

Biado scored his first point in the sixth rack, but continued to struggle after that, experiencing dry breaks, missed shots and even two crucial scratches.

By the end of 11th rack, Cuartero was already at the hill with an insurmountable 10-1 lead and a virtual winner, considering the nature of the alternate-break format.

Biado salvaged a game in the 12th rack, but a missed shot after safety exchanges sealed his fate. Cuartero wasted no time disposing off the remaining balls for the win.

“Ito ang una ko, matagal ko rin itong hinintay,” said Cuartero. “Mabigat ang kalaban ko, pero mahirap kalaban ang malas. Yun ang pinakakalaban niya kanina,” said Cuartero, who leaves for the Japan Open next month and another tournament in Kentucky before coming back to the Philippines in December.

Playing three finals matches in three consecutive days finally took its toll on Biado.

“Ngayon ko naramdaman yung pagod,” said Biado, champion of the 8-Ball division, and a finalist in the 10-Ball and 9-Ball events. “Ramdam ko kaagad kanina na parang hindi ko siya makukuha kaya parang negative yung aura ko.”

By playing in the finals of the three disciplines, Biado was able to get 530 points, enough for him to win the overall championship and the P200,000 prize on top of it.

Cuartero came in second, garnering 480 points and P100,000 runner-up prize. Orcullo was third with 470 points and a P50,000 prize.

MANILA, Philippines - Darren Appleton of Great Britain defeated Shawn Putnam of the United States, 13-6, in the finals to successfully defend his title at the end of the 36th annual US Open 9-ball Championships.

On the road to the finals, Appleton ousted Filipino-Canadian Alex Pagulayan, 11-7, for the hot seat match in the winner's brackets.

Putnam arranged a title showdown with Appleton after defeating Pagulayan 11-8 in the loser's bracket for the last finals berth.

Orcullo sees edge for Pinoy billiards team in SEA Games
Reynaldo Belen, InterAKTV · Saturday, October 29, 2011 · 7:08 pm

With four world champions and a bunch of crack pool players, the Philippine billiards team to the Southeast Asian Games are likely to reap medals in the competition.

Reigning world No. 1 player and current world 8-Ball titleholder Dennis Orcullo, Hall of Famer Efren “Bata” Reyes, former world 9-Ball champion Francisco “Django” Bustamante, and inaugural women’s world 10-Ball champion Rubilen Amilit will lead the Filipino charge in the biennial competition.

Orcullo, the leading candidate for the Male Player of the Year of the World Pool-Billiards Association, told InterAKTV in a telephone interview that the Philippines is capable of winning a plentiful bounty in the SEA Games.

“Lamang tayo kasi may mga world champions tayo,” he said. “May advantage tayo sa 8-Ball, pati na rin sa women’s 9-Ball and 8-Ball and men’s 9-Ball.”

Orcullo will play in his favorite discipline, the 8-Ball, where he is expected to romp with the crown.

Amit, who ruled both the 9-Ball and 8-Ball women’s events in Laos, is tipped to repeat as champion. The 30-year-old won the 2009 Women’s World 10-Ball championship in Manila where she defeated Liu Shin Mei of Chinese Taipei.

Bustamante became a world champion at the age of 47 when he captured his first major title in Doha, Qatar last year. He is favored to win in the men’s 9-Ball event. His bosom buddy, Reyes, will play in the carom event.

Other players seeing action for our national billiards squad are Warren Kiamco, Jeff de Luna, Jundel Mazon, Francisco dela Cruz, Rey Grandea, Felipe Tauro, Luis Saberdo and Iris Ranola.

Women’s world 10-Ball kicks off
Reynaldo Belen, InterAKTV · Wednesday, November 2, 2011 · 2:39 am

Two world champions and the reigning women’s world No. 1 player are out to foil Jasmin Ouschan’s bid for back-to-back championships in the Women’s World 10-Ball Championship, which begins Wednesday in two separate venues: Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas and Nuvo City in Libis.

Siming Chen, whose rise to prominence started when she won the the Philippine Open is capable of beating anyone in the tournament, including the top-ranked Australian.

Chen also won the China Open and placed second to compatriot Bi Zu Qing in the recent Women’s World 9-ball Championship.

The 18-year-old Chinese competitor isn’t the only cue artist tipped to give Ouschan a run for her money.

Fu Xiaofang and Lis Sha Sha, both winners of the World 9-Ball Championship, are also expected to contend. The two Chinese stalwarts are frequent visitors to the Philippines, playing against the country’s best players and using it as part of their training for the women’s 10-Ball event.

“They’ve been playing at the Star Billiards Center in Quezon City,” said Yen Makabenta, chairman of the Billiards and Snooker Congress of the Philippines. “Since these Chinese players are friends of Mr. Sebastian Chua, the owner of the billiards center, they’ve been training there and playing against some of our best male players.”

Other notable entries in the tournament include last year’s runner-up Ga Young Kim and fellow Koreans Erica Eunji Park and Amway Cup winner Yu Ram Cha, and inaugural Women’s World 10-Ball champion Rubilen Amit of the Philippines.

European competitors are also expected to challenge for the title, with Allison and Kelly Fisher of Great Britain and Karen Corr of Ireland, who are veteran participants in the Women’s Professional Billiards Circuit, joining the event.

Crowd favorite

But all eyes will be on Ouschan, a crowd favorite whenever she competes on Philippine soil.

She started to turn heads when she took part in a male event –- the World Ten Ball Championship –- before becoming a regular fixture in the Philippines.

Last year, Ouschan’s dream of winning a title in the country finally came true when she defeated the Ga Young Kim in the finals of the event.

“I can’t believe it happened, but for me, winning a championship in the pool capital of the world is the most special,” said Ouschan, who is also a former world No.1 player.

Women’s World 10-Ball: Ranola gets back at top seed for Asian Games loss
InterAKTV · Wednesday, November 2, 2011 · 10:59 pm

Iris Ranola rammed a tournament favorite Wednesday to begin her campaign in the 2011 Women’s World 10-Ball Championship in a big way at the Robinson’s Galleria in Pasig City.

Ranola displayed poise to upend top-seed Fu Xiaofang of China, 6-3, in Group 2 to earn a measure of revenge after the Filipina’s dismal match against her during the 2010 Asian Games.

“Hindi ko inasahan na manalo dahil noong Asian Games, 11-0 ako sa kanya,” said Ranola, referring to Fu. “Medyo malas siya sa mga tira niya. May mga sablay rin akong tinira pero nababawi ko naman.”

Ranola downplayed the big win early on in the tournament where her group that is also composed of Hua Shan Lai of Chinese Taipei, Mary Rakin of United States, Anastasia Necheava of Russia, and a qualifier.

The top three in each group will advance to the knockout stages.

“Actually, siya ang number one sa grupo namin pero hindi pa rin ako nakakasiguro kasi matitibay rin ‘yung mga kalaban lalo na ‘yung Taiwanese,” said Ranola.

Meanwhile, 2009 world 10-ball champion Rubilen Amit breezed past Nataliya Seroshtan, 6-2, in her Group 1 match.

Amit survived a 1-1 deadlock and two scratches to claim the victory she felt had a deceiving scoreline.

“Masaya ako sa performance ko except doon sa mga scratch ko. Actually, marami siyang magagandang pocketing pero marami rin siyang scratch. Nag-aadjust pa ako sa table,” said the 30-year-old Amit.

Amit is bracketed with defending champion Jasmin Ouschan in Group 1. They will face each other on Friday.

American Monica Webb, Taiwanese Shin Mei Liu of Chinese Taipei and a Chinese qualifier are also in Group 2.

Meanwhile, Korean Ga Young Kim swept her Day 1 matches as the two-time champion beat Yun Mi Lin of Korea, 6-4, and Miyuki Fuke of Japan, 6-4.

Kelly Fisher of England did the same in Group 5 as she defeated Eun Ji Park of Korea, 6-5, and Elham Shakori of Iran, 6-0.

In Group 6, Allison Fisher beat Praveena Neena of India, 6-2, but lost to Jia Lin of China, 6-5. Sha Sha Liu beat Indian Indira Gowda, 6-1, and bowed to China’s Yu Han, 2-6, in Group 7 play.

Chien Yu Chou of Taiwan dropped all her matches in the first day of competitions after she was outclassed by Chihiro Kawahara of Japan, 5-6, and Zhu Qing Bi of China, 3-6, in Group 8.

MANILA, Philippines - Filipina Rubilen "Bingkay" Amit romped away with a 6-4 rout of S.M. Liu of China, then bested J. Wu of Chinese-Taipei to maintain her good start in Group 1 of the 2011 Yalin World Women's 10-Ball Championship.

Amit defeated Natalya Seroshtan of Russia, 6-2, in the first round of Group 1 action last Wednesday.

With her victories, the 2009 inaugural champion Amit joined heavyweights Ga Young Kim of Korea and Kelly Fisher of Great Britain in the tournament's last 24 round.

Amit will next face Monica Webb of the United States.

Another Filipino, Iris Ranola scored her second win against H.C. in of Chinese-Taipei, 6-5, in Group 2.

Ranola, the former US Open Women's 9-ball runner-up nipped 2011 China 9-ball Open Women's champion Fu Xiao Fang of China, 6-3 in the opening round.

Her next assignment is Filipina-American Mary Rakin.

Rakin rebounded from a 2-6 loss to Lin with a 6-5 win over Fu. She earlier defeated Anastasia Necheava of Russia, 6-1, in the first round of Group 2.

Pinay bets stumble while Ouschan sizzles in women’s world 10-ball
InterAKTV · Friday, November 4, 2011 · 2:34 am

Pinay bets competing in the Women’s World 10-Ball Championship had mixed fortunes on Thursday at Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas.

Rubilen Amit, who won her first two games in Wednesday’s opening day, split her two matches. Her first loss came at the hands of Monica Webb, 3-6. Amit, the inaugural event champion, still remains in contention after she picked up her third win, a 6-4 win victory over Wu Jing of China.

Iris Ranola, who stunned former World 9-Ball champion Fu Xiaofang of China, 6-3, on Wednesday, absorbed a tough 5-6 loss to Mary Rakin of the United States.

The two crowd drawers defeated their respective rivals in convincing fashion.

Kim, a former world No.1 player, whipped Emily Duddy of the United States, 6-2.

Ouschan, the defending champion and a crowd darling, defeated Webb, 6-1, then added Nataliya Seroshtan of Russia to her list of victims, 6-3, for her third win in a row.

The reigning world No.2 player and Australia’s best bet in pool takes on Liu Shin Mei of Chinese Taipei on Friday.

“I played very well, which makes me very happy,” Ouchan posted on her Twitter account.

The top three players from each group advance to the single elimination phase. The No. 1 player from each bracket gets a first round bye.

MANILA, Philippines-- Former world champion Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit remained on track for a second world title as she stormed into the Last 16 of 2011 Yalin World Women’s 10-Ball Championship on Friday at the Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas.

The 29-year-old Amit, playing under the banner of businessman Aristeo "Putch" Puyat, reached the Final 16 after posting a 4-1 win-loss card in the single round eliminations in Group 1.

"Sana magtuloy-tuloy ang panalo ni Rubilen," said Puyat.

Amit defeated defending champion Jasmin Ouschan of Austria, 6-2, to top Group 1.

Actually, it was Ouschan who took the first rack but Amit managed to level the count at 1-all in the 2nd.

From there, Amit never looked back winning 4 straight racks to reach the hill at 5-1 count.

Ouschan won the 7th rack before Amit won the last rack for a 6-2 victory.

"Malakas na player si Jasmin pero nagkataon na maganda ang nilaro natin eh," said Amit.

Amit opened her campaign in sizzling fashion, posting 3 consecutive wins at the expense of Natalya Seroshtan of Russia, 6-2, S. M. Liu of China, 6-4, and J. Wu of Chinese-Taipei, 6-4, respectively.

Amit momentarilly hit a snag following a 3-6 defeat at the hands of Monica Webb of the US.

But she bounced back with a 6-2 win over Ouschan to reach the Last 16. --by Marlon Bernardino

Posted at 11/05/2011 6:37 PM | Updated as of 11/05/2011 6:37 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Former world champion Rubilen "Bingkay" Amit of the Philippines defeated Keiko Yukawa of Japan, 8-4, to earn a spot in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Yalin World Women’s 10-Ball Championship Saturday at the Robinson’s Galleria in Ortigas.

Amit, winner of this event two years ago, took a 7-1 advantage before Yukawa made a run, making it 7-4 heading into the final rack.

Amit, however, won the final rack and took the victory.

Yukawa, earlier ousted defending champion Jasmin Ouschan of Austria, 8-7, in the Last 24.

Amit's entry into the quarterfinals made up for the early exit of compatriot and Puyat Stable team mate Iris "Fighter" Ranola.

The Zamboanga bet Ranola, a former US Open women's finalist, succumbed to H.S.Lai of Chinese-Taipei, 4-8.

MANILA, Philippines - Rubilen "Bingkay" Amit bowed out of contention in the 2011 Yalin World Women's 10-Ball championship last Saturday after losing in the Last 8 against Chinese Taipei's Chen Tsai-pei at the Robinson's Galleria in Ortigas.

Chen ended Amit's bid to regain the crown she won in 2009, ousting the top Filipino bet, 8-7, in the quarterfinals.

Amit made a magnificent shot in the 14th frame to force a hill-hill finale that Chen clinched.

"Masaya na akong naka-abot sa 7-all, kahit may mga dry break akong natamo sa kabuuan ng laro," said Amit. "Maraming salamat sa lahat ng suporta ng mga kababayan natin."

Chen raced to a commanding 5-3 lead but Amit rallied to regain the upper hand at 6-5.

"Malakas talaga ang field kasi isa-isang bumabagsak ang mga paborita," said Amit, the Southeast Asian Games double gold winner (9-ball and 8-ball singles) in 2009.

Earlier, another Filipina cue artist, Iris Ranola, was ousted by H.S. Lai of Chinese Taipei, 4-8. Amit reached the Last 8 by crushing Keiko Yukawa of Japan, 8-4. -- By Marlon Bernardino

A YEAR TO REMEMBER

CHINA'S CHEN NAMED 2011 WPA WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE YEAR. ORCULLO LEADS MEN'S RACE WITH ONE EVENT TO GO.

Chen SimingChen Siming, the 17 year old pool prodigy from China, has been named the World Pool and Billiard Association(WPA) women’s player of the year for 2011.

Chen won the WPA’s top individual honor by beating out fellow Chinese Fu Xiaofang, who came in second. England’s Kelly Fisher, who recently won the Women’s World 10-Ball Championship in Manila, came in third.

The WPA Player of the Year honors are based on the total number of ranking points each player accumulates throughout the calendar year. In 2011, the women competed in six different WPA ranking events. Players receive points based on their order of finish in each event. The amount of ranking points available in each event varies, depending on the size of the field and prize fund.

Chen had a stellar all around year and managed to accumulate 2144 ranking points, far ahead of Fu with 1627, and Fisher with 1546. The teenage sensation won the Philippine Open 10-ball championship in March. She then took the runner up spot to Fu at the China Open in Shanghai. Her biggest point haul, however, came in September at the Women’s World 9-ball Championship in Shenyang, China where she took second to winner Bi Zhu Qing.

For winning the WPA Player of the Year award, Chen will receive a trophy and a beautiful Tag Heuer watch.

Dennis OrculloOn the men’s side, the WPA Player of the Year winner has yet to be determined as there is still one more ranking event to be played, the All Japan Championship, in mid-November. However, the Philippines’ Dennis Orcullo is the current favorite to capture to top honors as he currently sits in the top spot. Orcullo, who captured the World 8-ball Championship in Fujairah, UAE earlier this year, holds 2510 ranking points. His nearest rival is Japan’s Yukio Akagariyama with 2287 points. England’s Darren Appleton, who recently won his second straight U.S. Open title, is currently in third place with 2126 points.

The men’s Player of the Year award is based on points won in 8 separate ranking events over the course of 2011.
