Another in a seemingly endless parade of champions from the Philippines, Carlo Biado (born Oct. 31, 1983) began his career playing pool in the evenings after working as a caddie during the day. Biado began playing in professional events in the early 2000s but didn’t win his first significant event until winning the Manny Pacquiao 10-Ball Championship in 2010. He captured the Japan Open 10-Ball Championship five years later. Also in 2015, Biado reached the final of the World 10-Ball Championship, only to lose to Taiwan’s Pin Yi Ko. 

Biado finally broke through with major wins in 2017, defeating Scotland’s Jayson Shaw in the final to win a Gold Medal in the 9-Ball competition at the 2017 World Games, winning 9-Ball gold at the Southeast Asia Games (SEA Games), and topping countryman Roland Garcia to win the WPA World 9-Ball Championship. Biado reached the title match of the World 9-Ball Championship again a year later, losing to Joshua Filler.

In 2021, Biado earned the prestigious U.S. Open 9-Ball title, beating Singapore’s Aloysius Yapp in the final. He earned another SEA Games title that year as well, winning gold in Men’s 10-Ball.

Biado teamed with fellow Filipinos Johann Chua and Rubilen Amit to capture the WPA World Teams Championship. He added the Predator Pro Billiard Series Puerto Rico Open title in 2022.

In March 2024, Biado earned his third world title, topping Japan’s Naoyuki Oi to win the WPA World 10-Ball Championship in Las Vegas.
