Jose Amang Parica Wins AZ State One Pocket Championship!

Mon, 20 Jun 2011 20:05:00 +0000

Congratulations to Filipino pool player Jose Amang Parica for winning the 2011 Desert Classic Tour’s Arizona State One Pocket Championship, held at Kolby’s Corner Pocket in Tempe, Arizona! Yes, you read right, friends! The Great Amang has added another trophy to his endless string of career wins! And I kid you not!From AZ Billiards: Jose Parica is widely known in the pool world as "The Leader of the Invasion" as he was the first Filipino player to bring their pool playing abilities to the US. Over the weekend of June 18th and 19th, it was Arizona that Parica was invading to show off his one pocket abilities at the Desert Classic Tour's Arizona State One Pocket Championship, held at Kolby's Corner Pocket in Tempe, Az.One Pocket is a very popular game at Kolby's, due in part to the efforts of former Derby City One Pocket Champion Scott Frost and "Preacher" Ronn Rutan; so it was no surprise to see a field of 31 players at the event.As the tournament chart would have it, Parica faced off against Frost in the second round of the event. The match went hill-hill with Frost coming back from a 2-0 deficit, only to lose the case game to Parica.After the win over Frost, Parica would cruise on to the hot-seat match where he faced young gun Bobby Emmons. Emmons has never met a shot he doesn't like, and it showed in their match as Emmons "fired at will", making shots from everywhere on the way to a quick 3-1 win.Meanwhile, Frost was in unfamiliar territory as he made his way through the one loss side of the brackets. Nevertheless, he still found his way to a rematch with Parica in the semi-finals. To Frost's dismay, he would not be winning this State Championship as Parica sent him to the rail with a 3-0 scoreline.The final match between Parica and sharpshooting Emmons started out with Emmons still in gear and making balls from everywhere to take a quick 1-0 lead in the extended race to 5. After that first game, the pool gods turned their back on Emmons and those shots that he liked earlier in the day showed that they weren't as friendly with the title on the line. Emmons missed a couple of shots and that was all the pool veteran Parica needed to take control of the match. From that point, Parica put on a clinic in One Pocket tactics and Emmons found himself falling deeper and deeper behind. Five games later, it was Parica with the 5-1 win and yet another Championship to add to his impressive resume.Parica pocketed $1045 for first, while Emmons settled for $605. Frost won $300 and Rutan won $175 for fourth.Mabuhay ka Amang!"Respect for the Great One! The AnitoKid!"*Did you enjoy the post?

Tue, 01 Nov 2011 12:22:00 +0000

The complete group draw for the 2011 Yalin World 10-Ball Championship is now official! And I kid you not! The world’s best professional female pool players will battle it out at the 2011 Yalin World 10-Ball Championship from November 2 to 6, 2011, at Robinson's Galleria. China will try its darndest best to keep a monopoly on world championship wins, but they will have some big challenges in the persons of England's Allison Fisher and Kelly Fisher. "The World 10-Ball Championship is important to me because it is a title i have not won. Nine ball is a bit more of an equalizer but nevertheless, to win an event requires great play and some luck," commented Allison, aka the Duchess of Doom. "I hope to perform on a very high level and in turn create a great result." When asked who her top picks would be aside from herself, Fisher simply stated "Not saying." No doubt, with a big win in China last week and her 5th US Open title in early 2011, Allison sees herself on the top podium with England's national anthem playing.Korea will have a powerful force as well and is likely to produce a top contender into the later rounds. Ga Young Kim already has two World Championships, Yu Ram Cha has a World Open title, and Eunji Erica Park has a 3rd at the US Open and a 5th at the 2010 World 10-Ball. Heat from the Pool Capital of the World will be provided by no less than the 2009 World 10-Ball Champion Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit and Iris Ranola.

Daryl Peach Subdues Ronnie Alcano in Philippine Bigtime Billiards Face-Off Series!

Sat, 19 Nov 2011 15:20:00 +0000

Daryl Peach, aka The Dazzler, staged an impressive come-from-behind finish against Ronnie Alcano, aka The Volcano, to rule the November 29, 2011 Face-Off Series of Philippine Bigtime Billiards at the Pagcor Airport Casino in Paranaque City. Peach rallied from a 2-7 deficit and secured the win at 9-7.Peach, the 2007 World 9-Ball Champion, received the $5,000 top prize, while Alcano, the 2006 World 9-Ball and 2007 World 8-Ball Champion, settled for $2,500. The latter was the odds-on favorite to win both in the house and e-games.At the onset of the competition, Peach fumbled on two easy shots, which paved the way for Alcano to realize a seemingly insurmountable lead. However, the Dazzler took the last seven racks by exploiting the winner’s-break format in the 10-ball, race-to-9 event. It was a vindication of sort for Peach, who got nipped by Alcano in the 2007 World 8-ball Championships held at the United Arab Emirates.Peach’s win marks the third straight defeat of Filipino pool players in the weekly showdown after Ralf Souquet won against Dennis Orcollo and Carlo Biado in previous matches, which were also held at the Pagcor Airport CasinoBut wait! It ain’t over till the fat lady sings! Come November 26, 2011, Peach will face off against another World 9-Ball Champion – none other than Francisco Django Bustamante! And you guess, right! I am betting my bottom dollar on Django on this one. And I kid you not!*Photo credits go to my good friend Biboy Soriano."The AnitoKid loves come-from-behind finishes!"*Did you enjoy the post?
