Van Boening Pulls Off Another Miraculous Comeback on Day Two of World 10-Ball


Staff member
With this week’s WPA Men’s World 10-Ball Championship taking place in Las Vegas, Shane Van Boening is apparently auditioning for a new career while he’s in town: escape artist.

In his opening round matchup against Austrian Daniel Guttenberger, he watched his opponent build a 5-1 lead only to win seven of the next eight to pull out an 8-6 victory.

Playing in a winner’s side matchup on the second day of the Championship, Van Boening found himself in a familiar place as he trailed Canadian Martin Daigle 7-4. Once again, the American used some strong shot making along with a couple of mistakes by his opponent to come from behind and win, 8-7, to remain undefeated in the 128-player event at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino.
