Team Philippines won it’s second round match in the Predator 10-Ball World Teams Championship, after beating Team England, 3-2 in an exciting showdown at the SportPark in Klagenfurt, Austria on Thursday evening (Philippine Time).

Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit defeated Kelly Fisher, 4-2, then Carlo “The Black Tiger” Biado bested Jayson Shaw, 4-2. However, Team England bounced back and leveled the count at 2-2 after Fisher nipped Amit, 4-2, and Shaw routed Biado, 4-2.

In the finale, the shootout format was used to break the tie.
As per world-renowned blogger Leslie “AnitoKid” Mapugay.
“(Carlo) Biado pockets the 1st, (Jayson) Shaw does the same. (Rubilen) Amit successfully makes it and (Kelly) Fisher misses. Both Johann Chua and Darren Appleton missed their respective shots.

Everyone now is literally on the edge of their seats, and The Black Tiger (Carlo Biado) cometh to finish it off in emphatic form!
Gondo ng laban! One for the books! And I kid you not,” said The AnitoKid.

Meanwhile, Chezka “The Flash” Centeno advanced to the Top 16! Centeno, the inaugural Asian 9-Ball Women’s Champion, routed Japan’s Chihiro Kawahara, 7-4.

However, Amit’s campaign in the Championship came to an end Thursday afternoon (Philippine time) after suffering her second loss. The 40-year-old Amit was beaten by Poland’s Monika Zabek, 7-3.  Zabek jumped out to an early 3-0 lead before Amit swept back-to-back racks to move within two, at 2-3. But the Polish player proved steadier and banked smart shots in the next five racks of the race-to-seven affair.
