ALP 4TH 9 BALL BILLIARD CHAMPIONSHIP

by James Kevin Ty

The 4th ALP 9 Ball Billiards Tournament was held on July 13, 2007 at Playdium Bowling and Billiards Corporation at Araneta Avenue, Quezon City.  Among the ALPers who participated in the tournament were ALP president James Kevin Ty, Henry So, Hernando Bautista, Andrew Ian Chan, Edward Eli Tan, Alfonso Sy and  Aldrin Palacio. 

Pre-game meeting to discuss the rules of the game was initiated by James Kevin Ty at around 1:30pm.  After all the participants agreed to the proposed rules.  Game proper started at around 2:30pm.

The event started with a single round robin race to 3 match (Best of 5 series) elimination round that pitted each player against the rest of the group.  The elimination round took more than 3.5 hours to conclude because of quality skills being showed by the players! The purpose for the elimination round is to select the top 4 players that will advance to the semifinal round wherein  the 4 qualified players will play a single round elimination race to 5 match (Best of  9 series) round to select the top 2 players that will advance to the race to 7 (Best of 15 series) championship round to determine  this year's  9 ball champion.

After the exhausting  elimination round, Andrew Ian Chan , James Kevin Ty , Henry So and Edward Eli Tan advanced to the semi-final round.  It took another 4.5 gruelling hours to determine the  top 2 players that will enter the championship round. Andrew Ian Chan and Henry So entered into the championhip round while James Kevin Ty and Edward Eli Tan settled to fight for 2nd runner-up award.

Andrew Ian Chan was awesome and  flawless the whole series eliminating all his challengers !

Henry So played a good series as well as he was able to eliminate both last year's defending champion James Kevin Ty and  1st runner-up Edward Eli Tan to set a finals match with Andrew Ian Chan.

James Kevin Ty slugged  it out with Edward Eli Tan to decide who will win the 2nd runner-up trophy.

Edward Eli Tan took advantage of James' faulty shots to secure a 5-4 win  for the 2nd runner-up trophy.

Andrew Ian Chan disposed Henry So with a stunning 7-1 win to cap this year's 9-ball crown

The championship  round was sort of a massacre! Andrew defeated Henry with a convincing 7-1 score to secure the crown . On the other hand, the fight for 2nd runner-up round was more of a tight match as Edward took advantage of James faulty shots to win 5-4.

The awarding of the trophies  will be awarded on the August 10 monthly meeting at Manila Planetarium.   Congratulations to Andrew, Henry and Edward for winning this year's ALP 9 ball tournament! More power!
