Appleton Paid in Full For World 10-Ball Championship Win

After some delay Britain's Darren Appleton has been “paid in full” his prize money of $100,000 for winning the World Ten-Ball Championships staged ay the Philippine International Convention Center last September., Standard Today and Viva Sports learned that Appleton wad paid in full on November 11 (Monday).
All the American players who finished in the money were the first to be paid along with the Filipinos such as Demosthenes Pulpul who finished fourth and earned $15,000 which we learned was paid to him in pesos which is the local currency. Pulpul, the surprise giant-killer in the tournament did not complain about being paid in pesos.
However, we have been informed that Niels Feijen of the Netherlands  hadn't received the $25,000 due him for his third place finish but it is believed that the bank transfer should reach him shortly.
Appleton had posted a comment earlier this month about non-payment of his prize money and that nobody from the organizing Raya Sports which is headed by Yen Makabenta who is also chairman of the Billiards and Snooker Congress of the Philippines, had contacted the players or said anything.
Raya Sports executive JP Fenix immediately issued a statement which was carried by the website that the prize money would be sent by bank transfer on October 30 and 31.
However, following what looked like a slight delay the prize money was paid and Appleton who had said he wanted to take some time off and enjoy his winnings will now be able to do just that.
