World 8-Ball champion Dennis Orcollo, aka The Robocop, surpassed Antonio Lining, aka Nikoy, in the latest World Pool-Billiard Association ranking. Orcollo garnered an additional 500 points for reaching the quarterfinal round of the 2011 World Ten Ball Championship (WTBC) held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, Philippines. The 2011 WTBC was won by Huidji See of the Netherlands.

Orcollo, who plays for Bugsy Promotions, compiled a total of 1910 points, 100 points ahead of Lining, who got 60 points in the WTBC event. Lining, who plays for the Negros Billiards Stable (NBS) and JSY Sports, dropped to second place in the rankings.

Carlo Biado, another player from Bugsy Promotions, moved up from 98th place to No. 25 after the 27-year-old pool player amassed 640 points for making it to the semifinal round of the 2011 WTBC.

But wait! There's more! Three more Filipino pool players are in the top 10 of the rankings! And I kid you not! They include Lee Vann Corteza (NBS and JSY Sports), double world champion Ronnie Alcano (NBS and JSY Sports), and Francisco Django Bustamante (Puyat Sports). Corteza, aka The Slayer, is No.6 with 1446 points, while Alcano, aka The Volcano, is No. 7 - only three points behind Corteza. Bustamante, the reigning World 9-Ball champion, dropped to No. 8 with 1432 points.
