REIGNING National Pool Champion Lee Vann Corteza will lead the assault of a strong Philippine contingent on the money rich Million Dollar 9 Ball Shootout which gets underway on August 6-10 at Valley Forge Convention Center in Pennsylvania, United States.
Fondly called "The Slayer" in the pool arena, the 29-year-old pride of Davao City is eyeing the biggest win in his entire billiards career when he mixes it up against the world's best in this $1M total purse with the champion getting the lion share of $150,000.
"I hope to perform well in this event," said Negros Billiard Stable (NBS) top player Corteza.
Other notable Filipino bets competing in the event are former world champions Efren "Bata" Reyes and Alex "The Lion" Pagulayan, Francisco "Django" Bustamante, Mandaluyong bet Marlon "Marvelous" Manalo and Macalelon, Quezon province native Santos "The Saint" Sambajon.
The  host country will parade the likes of former world 9-ball titlist Johnny "The Scorpion" Archer and US Open 9-ball winner Shane "The South Dakota Kid" Van Boening, among others.
