Ralf is one of the best tournament players in pool history, but I simply can't stand watching him play. It took him 6 minutes to shoot a fairly trivial safety. I know he was looking whether the combination was on or not, but come on.

Average minutes per game for the 4 streamed matches on the final day:

8.1 -- Chang Jung-Lin d. Ralf Souquet 11-9
4.7 -- Chang Yu-Lung d. Jeffery Ignacio 11-7
5.2 -- Oi Naoyuki d. Chang Yu-Lung 11-6
5.7 -- Raymund Faraon d. Oi Naoyuki 11-8

Just an update - this 17 year old beat alex yesterday 17-5. :D

What is the name of this 17 year old kid and when will we see him play in the USA? Aside from Alex Pagulayan, who are the top PI players he has beaten?

anthony raga or "anton raga." he's beaten jeffrey ignacio 3 times (race to 21) and ronnie alcano, no handicap. he's beaten jericho banares giving jericho 9-10 handicap. dennis always gave him 9-10 handicap, but dennis never won against this kid. someone is setting an even match between him and dennis this december.

What game were they playing?

I just tried to find Faraon's age. One article said he is 26. Does that sound correct as far as you know?

arps can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think he was referring to Faraon, but rather Anton Raga, who is 17.

Wow, that indeed is impressive for a 17 year old. Is this kid (Anton Raga) participating in the Manny Pacquiao tournament?

Ruben Bautista (HT finalist) is in the Philippines right now as a guest to Raga's financer. He says he saw this kid run 15 balls 7 consecutive times. He was impressed. :)
He is actually in the tournament, he lost to Thorsten though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKtK_ROpmu4
