PINOY TRIUMPHS AT THE 2010 WORLD POOL CHAMPIONSHIP

Filipinos again have a reason to celebrate- the victory of Francisco “Django” Bustamante at the recent 2010 World Pool Championship held in Doha, Qatar. As reported in the major newspapers, Bustamante downed Kuo Po-cheng of Chinese Taipeh in the final match at a score of 13-7 finally capturing the crown which eluded him for years. For his effort, Bustamante pocketed the top prize of $ 36, 000.

The victory of Bustamante once again proved the dominance of Pinoys in the sport of Billiard. Bustamante joins four other earlier World Pool titlists- Efren Reyes, Ronnie Alcano, Alex Pagulayan and Rubilen Amit- the women’s 10-ball titlist.

Apparently, Billiard is a sport where height is not might. Filipinos are not known for height. Bustamante, Reyes, Pagulayan, Amit and many other Filipino world class cue artists are not tall players. Top billiard players from other countries like Ralf Souquet and Mika Immonen are not tall either.
