PH World Cup duo ousted

By Jerome Lagunzad

Team Philippines’ title hopes in the 2018 World Cup of Pool were shattered into pieces yesterday as Carlo Biado and Jeffrey De Luna proved no match to China-B’s Kong Dejing and Wang Ming, 9-1, in the quarterfinals at the Luwan Arena in Shanghai, China.

The fourth-ranked Filipino poolsharks, coming off a 7-0 blanking of England last Friday, groped for form and hardly showed any resistance to their Chinese counterparts, ending their title pursuit with a whimper.

Biado, the reigning world 9-ball champion, and De Luna could console themselves with $9,000 for reaching the Last 8 stage of the world’s most prestigious 9-ball doubles tourney which offers a total pot money of $250,000.
