2013 World Cup of Pool - Philippines up for the job


Image


With the 2013 World Cup of Pool set to take place in London from 17-22 September, it’s no surprise that leading
UK bookmaking firm William Hill have installed the super-talented Filipino pairing of Dennis Orcullo and Lee Vann
Corteza as joint favorites at 8/1 along with the USA.

The deadly duo from Manila, currently world ranked #2 and #3 respectively, are certainly one of the in-form pairs
competing for the $60,000 top prize when 32 two-player teams from all over the world convene at the York Hall
for the six day event.

Although the Philippines have won this event on two occasions in its seven year history, both times it was the
pairing of Pinoy pool legends Efren Reyes and Francisco Bustamante who claimed the glory.

The nearest Orcollo has come was a runners-up spot in 2010 when he and Roberto Gomez were well beaten by China,
while Corteza will be making his second appearance in the competition after partnering Orcullo in Manila in 2012.

Last September, with the weight of expectation on their shoulders, they flopped, going down 8-7 to a giant-killers
Switzerland in the first round.

“I am very honored to be given another chance to represent the Philippines in the World Cup of Pool,” said Corteza.

“To be honest, last year was like a blur and it was over before we knew it. The pressure from our home crowd was a
little too much to handle but hopefully this time we can perform better.”

There will certainly be plenty of Filipinos in the crowd when Corteza and Orcullo break off against Croatia on the
opening night but it will be nothing to compare to the stifling pressure of 3,000 countrymen willing every ball into
the pockets.

Orcullo added, “We feel a bit more confident away from home but it would be great if there were some of our
countrymen cheering us on.

“Playing in the World Cup is always a thrill and this is my fifth consecutive year with four different partners. My
dream is to finally raise the Cup this year together with Lee Vann. We are more mature, a little more confident and
we are very hungry to win this one.”

“It’s certainly one of the best tournaments on the calendar and when you’re playing for your country it always
means a little bit more.”


The 2013 World Cup of Pool runs from 17 – 22 September and takes place at the York Hall, London.

Star-studded World Cup line up revealed


Image


With the eighth running of the annual World Cup of Pool now a month away, the full line-up of players
competing in the $250,000 event can be revealed. 32 pairs of players representing 31 countries will be
coming to London from the 17th – 22nd September as the fabled pool and boxing venue of the York Hall
plays host to one of the biggest events on the pool calendar.

15 of the world’s top 20 ranked players will be in attendance in what arguably is the event’s strongest
line up yet. Among favourites for the title will be two-time World Cup winners China – represented by Li
Hewen and Liu Haitao – and the highly dangerous Filipino pairing of Dennis Orcullo and Lee Vann Corteza.

Other notable duos from the Far East include the Chinese Taipei representatives, Ko Pin-yi and Chang Jung
Lin, and Japan’s Naoyuki Oi and Lo Li-wen.

Mosconi Cup legend Johnny Archer will be partnered by Shane Van Boeing as the USA look to repeat the
feat of Shane and Rodney Morris in Rotterdam in 2008 by winning the trophy for the second time.

English hopes come in the shape of World No.1 Darren Appleton and Karl Boyes, as well as Daryl Peach and
Chris Melling. Both will be fancied to make a big impact in London.

Nick Van den Berg and Niels Feijen will be carrying orange hopes on their shoulders, while veteran Ralf
Souquet will be partnered by young gun Dominic Jentsch as Germany attempt to win for the second time in
three years.

Finally, can the Finnish pair of Mika Immonen and Petri Makkonen stage a repeat of their brilliant run to the
title in Manila last year?

Matchroom Sport chairman Barry Hearn said, “Looking at the teams for this year’s event, I reckon that at
least half of them are in with a shout if the balls roll their way.


“However, you’d have to look at the track record of China, the sheer class of the Filipinos, the pedigree of
the United States and of course the two high-quality English teams.

“As we’ve seen in the past though, there are always unfancied sides that emerge from the pack and make
serious challenges for the title. Either way, the World Cup of Pool will be a feast for cue sports fans and with
the York Hall playing host, this one should be the best yet!”
