Zlateva Books Her Place In Woman’s VG 9-Ball Finals Brackets; Chien Competes On Friday

After one day of play at the Woman’s Poison VB 9-Ball Championship, Bulgaria’s Kristina Zlateva has booked her place in the final six player bracket. Zlateva went undefeated on Thursday, with wins over Monica Webb, Eugenia Gyftopoulos and Turkey’s Eylul Kibaroglu. Kibaroglu had wins over Webb and Gyftopoulos on Thursday and will hope to earn one of the two wildcard spots when group play is complete. 

Day two of the event on Friday will see another four players competing in round robin play, with Taipei’s Wei Tzu Chien, Japan’s Yuki Hiraguchi, Indonesia’s Angeline Ticoalu and Belarus’s Yana Halliday all in action. 

All of the ladies will be competing in 8 racks of 9-ball against the ghost, hoping to run more balls than their opponent. The top finisher in the four player group will earn her place in the final bracket, with two wildcards who don’t win their groups also making the final bracket. 

Play begins at 1:00 PM Eastern Time and can be followed online at https://www.facebook.com/CueItUpPodcast
