by Marlon Bernardino

World-renowned blogger Leslie “Anito Kid” Mapugay had something to say about our PH bets in Austria:

"To Bingkay, Chezka, Johann, and Carlo: You are our champions on and off the green felt. You represent the best of the best from the Pool Capital of the World. All of you carry the hopes and dreams of an entire nation. I am very, very proud of y'all! We all are! Mahal na mahal namin kayo. Wishing our Team Philippines the very best. Mabuhay," said Mapugay, who is also a co-founder of the Makati Pool Players Association - MAPPA, and is currently one of its Board of Directors, serving as its Public Relations Officer under the able leadership of MAPPA President Arvin Arceo.

Centeno wins; Amit falters
by Marlon Bernardino

MANILA---PH bet Chezka "The Flash" Centeno played even better in her second game in the Predator World Women’s 10-Ball Championship, turning back Chantal Stadler of Germany, 7-2, to remain unscathed at the SportPark in Klagenfurt, Austria Wednesday night.

Earlier, the inaugural Singapore Asian 9-Ball Women's Champion Centeno won her opening match against Elise Qiu of the Netherlands, 7-0.

Not everything was good news for local billiard fans, though, with Rubilen "Bingkay" Amit, failing to sustain the momentum of her victory over Yi Yun Su of Chinese-Taipei, 7-0, bowing to Ina Kaplan of Germany, 5-7.

Amit will battle it out in the B side of the competition against Monika Zabek of Poland according to World-renowned blogger Leslie “Anito Kid” Mapugay.

Gondo ng laban! One for the books! And I kid you not," said The AnitoKid.

"To say that it was a pretty exciting match between two of the world's powerhouses in pool would be an understatement.

He started the knockout round with a 2-0 result over teammate Johann Chua before beating Taiwanese Ko Ping Chung, 2-1 in the Last 16.

The La Union native Biado continued his winning run after defeating 2021 World 10-Ball champion Eklent Kaci of Albania, 2-1 in the quarterfinals and Venezuelan Jesus Atencio, 2-1 in the semis.

This is Biado's first individual title in the Predator Pro Billiards Series this season which he added to the World team crown he bagged alongside Johann Chua and Rubilen Amit last September.

Biado's win came just after fellow national team member Chezka Centeno finished runner-up in the women's side after bowing to Taiwanese Tzu Chein Wei, 0-2 in the final.

Biado, Chua and other Filipino cue artists will end their season starting tomorrow in the Puerto Rico World 8-Ball.
