Alcano incredibly won 6 racks in a row and defeated Luong 9-7
Wu Yu-Lun just took down Gabica 9-4. This junior world champ really is very talented.

I couldn't seem to get through via TVU. Is this an alternate break format?
It seems Ronnie is the only Filipino who will advance, everybody else fell by
the wayside...

Yeah, TVU didn't open up the Star Sports for me either. Should I install Sopcast then... sigh.

Taiwan lost 2 major contenders in Chang & Wu (Chia-Ching)
But the Pinoys suffered even bigger blow.
I'm hoping a Yang-Alcano or Yang-Chao final (hopefully Yang will prevail in his hometown)
:D
For the broadcast, the channel on TVU has no signal. Now only Sopcast's is working.

Watching LIVE via TVU channel Star Sports 10006 right now. The speed is coming in good via TVU. For some reason, my SOPCAST has been constantly buffering today.

Anyway, Alcano is leading 3 to 1 right now.

Yeah I saw it but he sold out the 4. Unfortunately, Yang hooked himself behind the 9 and it was all downhill for him.

Anyways, it will be Wu Yu-Lun against Yang Ching-Shun and Fong Pang-Chao
vs. Ronnie Alcano in the semifinals. I wouldn't miss it for the world!

Nope, We just saw Ricky Yang choked and missed a lot of balls. All of his shots are clear sell-outs. wonder how he made the quarterfinals? :rolleyes:

Not only Ricky Yang but also Chan Keng Kwang, I think they still feel uneasy in front of the camera. On the other hand, the youngest player Wu Yu-Lun seemed fearless and calm, and now I know why he could win three-time World Junior Champions.

Yang Ching-Shun won over Wu Lu-Yun, 11 games to 8. The match was filled
with errors, mostly from Yang's side and scratches, on Wu's part. Not a good
match to watch. ho-hum...

Chao seems careless in the final match - much different from the semifinal - and I think it is because Yang is his compatriot and student and good friend.

It is interesting the pinoy money game king took the crown home in America, and then the taiwan money game king triumphed in Asia on the same day.

Yang Cops Kaoshiung Leg of Guinness Tour

Yang Ching-Shun of Taiwan added another regional title to his array of Asian championships when he defeated compatriot Chao Fong-Pang in the finals of the second leg of the Guinness 9-Ball Tour at the Kaoshiung Exhibition Center on Sunday.

It was a mentor-vs-disciple finals, with the mentor ( Chao) yielding to the disciple (Yang) by the score of 11-6. Chao took Yang under his wing at the age of 15 and nurtured him into the player that he is today.

Yang led the match all the way. With the score at 7-3, Chao threatened briefly by taking two racks and closing the gap to 7-5. But then he sputtered and Yang was off and running again. The last few racks featured several missed shots by Chao that virtually gave the match to his younger opponent.

Chao’s performance was in sharp contrast to his flawless play against WPA double world champion Ronato Alcano in the semifinals. He defeated the last Filipino contender 11-6.

After Alcano took an impressive 3 – 1 lead, Chao strung together six consecutive racks to seize the lead at 7–3. The reigning world champion rallied by switching to his patented soft-break. For a while, the change in breaking style allowed him to take two break-and-runouts. But Chao held steady by also winning his breaks.

With the count at 9-6, Alcano scratched on his break and left Chao an easy runout. That seemed to be the end, but on rack 17, the Taiwanese scratched on his break.

Alcano carelessly muffed an easy 3 – 9 corner combination, however, and left Chao a gimme.

Yang gained his finals berth by beating three-time junior world pool champion Wu Yu-Lun, 11 -8, in their semifinals contest.
For his victory, Yang won the top prize of $15,000. Chao took home $6,000.

The Taiwanese players have won so far the first two legs of this year’s Guinness 9-Ball Tour.
