Corteza, who plays for the Negros Billiards Stable and JSY Sports, fought back from a 1-3 deficit by winning 5 of the next 6 racks. He capitalized on Orcollo’s miscue in the 10th rack to seize a 6-4 lead. And I kid you not!
He sustained his pace from there and took 5 of the next 9 racks to complete the win worth a cool Php350,000, including a San Miguel Beer Mug trophy.
Corteza’s sponsors include Kopiko, Energen, Hustlin USA, and Diveney Cues.
