Francisco Django Bustamante Leads Opening Day Winners in 2011 Villar Cup!

Francisco Django Bustamante GraphicWorld 9-ball champion Francisco Django Bustamante leads the pack of winners in the opening day of the 2011 Manny Villar Cup being staged at the Star Mall Alabang in Muntinlupa City. And I kid you not! Bustamante scored a scintillating 9-7 win over Renemar David in the two-day event organized by none other than Senator Manny Villar for the benefit of more than a dozen children stricken with cancer.

Bustamante, who plays for Puyat Sports, initially found himself tied with David after 10 racks. To the delight of everyone, Django took up four the next five racks to secure the victory. Joining Bustamante in the winners’ circle are Roberto Gomez, aka Superman, who won against Rodolfo Luat, aka Boy Samson (9-7); Warren Kiamco, who eked out Iris Ranola (9-1); and Ramil Gallego, aka Bebeng, who defeated Carlo Biado (9-4). Gomez and Biado play for Bugsy Promotions, while Luat and Kiamco belong for the Negros Billiards Stable. Ranola is with Puyat Sports.

The opening ceremonies was highlighted by the presence of Senator Villar, one of the sport’s biggest patrons. Villar highlighted his never-ending support for billiards, as well as efforts to help alleviate the plight of children suffering from cancer. Villar has pledged close to Php1,000,000 for the event, with the lion’s share of Php300,000 going to the champion. The 1st runner up will get Php120,000, while the other two semifinalists will each receive Php63,000. Moreover, a portion of the players’ prizes will go to over a dozen cancer-stricken children from different parts of the country through the coordinated efforts of the Villar Foundation.

The best of luck to my pool playing friends!
