Roberto Gomez is WPA-Beijing Open 9-Ball Championship 1st Runner-Up!

Roberto Gomez GraphicCongratulations to Filipino pool player Roberto Gomez, aka Superman, for finishing 1st Runner Up in the 2011 WPA-Beijing Open 9-Ball Championship! Indeed, ‘twas one spectacular hill-hill finals against Chang Jung Lin of Chinese Taipei, who is also a former Guinness 9-Ball champion.

The Superman, who plays for Bugsy Promotions, had his fair share of difficult-to-win matches in the 2011 WPA-Beijing Open 9-Ball Championship. These include impressive wins over Wu Jiaqing of China (11-9) and Fu Che Wei of Chinese Taipei in the semi-finals.

Also, Florentino "Yen" Makabenta, Chairman of the Billiards & Snooker Congress of the Philippines (BSCP), will recommend to the BSCP board that Gomez be given a spot in the main draw of the forthcoming 2011 WPA World Ten Ball Championships.

In the Women’s Division, it was none other than Yu Ram Cha of South Korea who bagged the championship and all! She squashed Chou Chie Yu of Chinese Taipei, 9-6, in the women’s Finals. Indeed, Yu has come a long way since her international debut a few years back! And I kid you not!

Congratulations to all the winners and placers!
See you soon in Manila y’all! Mabuhay!
