Originally from Newport News, Charlie Williams, aka Korean Dragon, started his pool career in this East Coast area of Virginia known as Hampton Roads where the US Open is held every year. The Obelisk was one of his frequent stops as a young player. Since then, Williams has won multiple pro titles including the BCA Open, UPA Capitol City Classic, Korea Pro Tour Championships, Lucasi Hybrid Classic, and 5x Member of the US Mosconi Cup Team. And oh! Williams just recently finished 5th at the World 10-Ball Championship in the Philippines.
Any fan and player can sign up at the Obelisk Billiard Club to challenge Williams or Cha to a game or match. Matches available are races to 3, 5, or 7 with a grand prize winner receiving a Predator Air Jump Cue!. The Obelisk Billiard Club is a 21 table room owned by George and Mary Tucker and Donald and Cathy Dale. The Obelisk was established in 1988 and has since been the premiere billiard room in the Hampton Roads area. It was also recognized as one of the nation's top rooms during the 90's. The show starts at 7:00pm. Please contact Obelisk at 757-874-8588.
"It's great to be able to come back to my hometown and see all my friends and family. I remember going to the Obelisk as a 12 year old kid when they first opened. I used to ride my bicycle there! It's really great to see them still doing well after two decades." said Charlie Williams. "I'm bringing my mom and my protégé Yu Ram from Florida with me on this trip, and it's exciting to introduce Hampton Roads pool fans to Yu Ram."
Korean sensation Yu Ram Cha has been tearing up the pool scene with regional men and women's tour victories along with high finishes in major WPBA pro events. Although a TV celebrity in Korea, she just recently made her ESPN debut with a 3rd Place finish at the Women's US Open. Known as "Little Lightning," Cha, who attended four major events out of six in just a few months, has escalated from unranked to the Top 20 on the Women's Pro Billiards Tour!
"Charlie and Yu Ram are fantastic representatives of our sport. Charlie is a long standing pro and believer in Predator technology while Yu Ram is one of the strongest up and coming talents we've ever seen. We're pleased to have both use Predator in their endeavors!" said Karim Belhaj, CEO of The Predator Group.
