Yu Long Zhang Wins 2010 China 9-Ball Open! High Finishes for Antonio Lining and Lee Vann Corteza!

Congratulatory notes are in the offing to Filipino pool players Antonio Lining and Lee Vann Corteza for placing 1st an 2nd runner-ups, respectively, at the just-concluded 2010 China 9-Ball Open held at the Minya Hotel in Shanghai, China! Yu Long Zhang took home the championship trophy and the top prize of $40,000, while Lining settled for the runner-up prize of $15,000. Both Antonio Lining and Lee Vann Corteza play under the Negros Billiards Stable and JSY Sports. And I kid you not!

Lining lost to China’s Yu Long Zhang, 11-7, in the finals. Zhang earlier won against Corteza in the semis. 

Lee Vann Corteza, aka The Slayer, is fresh from winning the 2010 Predator Sweet 16 held at The Block in SM North Edsa, Quezon City, Philippines. Sponsored by Kopiko and Energen, the Slayer scored wins against Yukio Akakariyama of Japan, 11-6, in the round-of-32, and Zhi Dong Lang of China, 11-9, in the round-of-16. In the group stage, the Filipino pool player defeated Wang Guobin of Chinese-Taipei, 11-6, before losing to Ko Pin-yi of Chinese-Taipei, 3-11. He then beat Naoyuki Oi of Japan, 11-5, to advance in the knockout stage.

In the women’s finals, China’s Si Ming Chen won against Allison Fisher, aka The Duchess of Doom, 9-7. Fisher earlier won against Filipina pool player Rubilen Amit, aka Bingkay, in the quarterfinals, 9-3.

Congratulations Nikoy and Van-Van! Mabuhay!
