Filipino Biado Loses to Souquet in PBB Face Off


Manila, Philippines---FILIPINO Carlo "The Black Tiger" Biado failed to exact vengeance against German Ralf "Kaiser" Souquet in the Philippine Bigtime Billiards (PBB) Face Off Series dubbed as "The Prince versus The Emperor" late Saturday at the PAGCOR Airport Casino in Paranaque City.

The reigning World Pool Masters Champion Souquet asserted his dominance over 2011 BSCP National Pool Champion Biado, winning, 9-3, in the race-to-9 10-ball affair, which was aired live over Solar Sports, Sky Channel 70 and Destiny Channel 34 and also aired worldwide through the Internet, live streaming at, and

The former WPA World 9-ball and 8-ball champion Souquet pocketed the $5,000 cash purse and kept his bragging rights over the Bugsy Promotions ace Biado. Souquet also defeated Biado twice with a 9-8 decision during the Guinness 10-ball tour in Jakarta and the Philippine International Open 10-ball Championships in Manila last year.

"Luck played a part in my victory. Carlo is a very tough opponent and I really had a hard time beating him," said Souquet, who also beat World No.1 and World 8-ball Champion Dennis "Robocop" Orcollo, 9-6, in the Philippine Bigtime Billiards (PBB) Face Off Series last week.

Souquet raced to a 6-1 lead and never looked back in this PBB Face Off series, a joint undertaking of Mega Sports World and BRKHRD Corp in close cooperation with PAGCOR, Crown, Diamond Table, Malungai Life Oil,I bAR, Golden Leaf Restaurant, Hermes Sports, Billiards Managers and Players Association of the Philippines (BMPAP) with the Philippine Star as the official media partner.

"I got nervous when he took a 6-1 lead. It's very hard to get back into the game when he takes an early lead especially in a short, winner's break match," said former caddie-turned-billiard player Biado. 

"I hope to play with him again as it's really exciting going up against one of the world's best cue artists," added Biado who received $2,500 for his effort.

Another blockbuster match featuring former World 9-ball and 8-ball champion Ronato "Volcano" Alcano against ex-World 9-ball ruler Daryl "The Dazzler" Peach of Great Britain is slated for November 19 and World 9-ball Champion Francisco "Django" Bustamante vs Peach on November 26.
