Lee Vann Corteza Wins Golden Break 9-Ball Asian Invitational Championship!

Lee Vann Corteza GraphicCongratulations to Filipino pool player Lee Vann Corteza of the Negros Billiards Stable and JSY Sports for winning the 2011 Golden Break 9-Ball Asian Invitational Championship in Malaysia!

Corteza, aka The Slayer, was deemed the favorite of the lot to win the championship from the moment he stepped on Malaysian soil. Sponsored by businessman Jonathan Sy, the Slayer played exceptional billiards to defeat Ko Ping Chung of Chinese Taipei with an impressive 13-8 win in the Finals.

The Finals of the 2011 Golden Break 9-Ball Asian Invitational Championship saw Corteza breaking off. The player from NBS and JSY Sports immediately took a 3-0 lead. He was in total control throughout the Finals, giving Ping Chung little hope. And I kid you not! Ping Chung trailed Corteza throughout the Finals.

Corteza’s entry into the Finals was highlighted by a victory over Indonesian Riyan Setiawan in the Semi-Finals, while Ko Ping Chung advanced to the hot seat via a win over his older brother, Ko Pin Yi.

For his stellar performance Corteza received a cool US$7,000 and the Championship trophy. Ping Chung settled for US$3,500 and the 1st-Runner Up trophy.
