The Lion Prowls in Paradise

Phoebe Choy and Alex Pagulayan

Alex “The Lion” Pagulayan and Phoebe Choy arrived in Honolulu two days ago to spend the holidays with Phoebe's relatives and friends.

Alex is currently ranked #2 on the AZBilliards professional tournament player's money list. His last tour victory was last month at in Tokyo, Japan, where he beat the great Efren Reyes to claim the WPA-IBC World Tour Finals Championship. He plans to resume his professional tour play in January at the Bicycle Club tournament in Los Angeles.

No stranger to Hawaii, Alex has matched up and played with a number of the better players on his last visit to Hawaii a few years ago.

The ownership of Hawaiian Brian's Billiards has graciously extended free playing privileges to this young billiard phenom and he plans to practice and play here regularly to prepare for his return to the tour circuit in January.
