The dream match will be a race-to-four affair happening in between the championships of the Search for the New Billiards Idol Sipag at Tiyaga Edition and the Top Guns Challenge on May 10, 2008. Both Efren Bata Reyes and Ronnie Alcano are also seeing action in the Top Guns Challenge, where other Filipino pool players are vying for the P400,000 top prize and the distinction of being the first Manny Villar Cup Champion. These include current word no.1 Dennis Orcollo, 2007 World Pool Championship runner-up Roberto Gomez, former Asian Games gold medalist Gandy Valle, national titlist Lee Van Corteza, and veteran billiards players Warren Kiamco, Ramil Gallego, Eduardo Villanueva, Roel Esquillo, and Rodolfo Luat. Other Filipino pool players competing in the said event are Joven Bustamante, Jharome Pena, Carlo Biado, Russian Petiza, Benjie Guevarra, Ricky Zerna, Elmer Haya, Jundel Mason, Panfilo Damuag, Godofredo Ducanes, William Chua, Mark Mendoza, Mary Ann Basas, and Rubilen Amit.
Over a hundred players from all over the country will compete in the Billiards Idol Sipag at Tiyaga Edition, where a top prize of P200,000 and the equally-prestigious Sipag at Tiyaga trophy awaits the winner. That’s for an entry fee of only P300. The final day of the Villar Cup will be aired on Solar Sports with sultry singer-comedienne Maureen Larrazabal singing the national anthem to usher the championship matches of this event supported by Puyat Sports, Bugsy Promotions, Negros Billiards Stable, and StarMall, and sanctioned by the Games and Amusements Board (GAB). Interested parties may contact Gandy Valle at 0916-958-9897, Jojo Santos at 0915-700-800, or Edwin Reyes at 0926-724-9055.
