/ 05:05 AM March 13, 2018

Carlo Biado continued to wield a hot cue stick and bested fellow Filipino Jundel Mazon, 13-11, to rule the 10-Ball Jogja Open International Billiard Tournament 2018 in Indonesia on Sunday.

Showing the form that made him the 2017 world 9-ball champion, the 34-year-old Biado pocketed the top purse of $12,000 (about P625,000).

The pride of La Union trounced Indonesian Ricky Yang, 11-5, in the semifinals to arrange the showdown with Mazon, who toppled compatriot Husley Jusayan, 11-9.

The Filipinos’ 1-2-3 finish boosted the nation’s morale, according to former billiards pro and Asian snooker champion  Marlon Manalo, a close confidante of Biado.

“They gave us something to cheer for,” said Manalo.  —ROY LUARCA
