Coverage from

Philippine Open: Day 1 Brings Across the Board Upsets

April 7-11

Philippine Open
SkyDome SM City

Quezon City, Metro Manila, The Philippines

The Philippine Open is a ranking World Pool-Billiard Association event featuring 10-ball.

Men's division: 64 player field ($100,000)
Women's division: 32 player field ($76,000)

Men's Division Highlights

Finland's Mika Immonen was unseated by number 105 player Japan's Li Wen Lo. Lo looks to be one to watch, if his day 1 play is any indication. Immonen is working his way through the loser's side by beating out Rudy Sustano 9-6, and now waits to face Filipino Jerico Banares.

The USA's top player, Shane Van Boening fell as well, losing out to Naoyuki Oi from Japan. Van Boening kept the trend going with a 7-9 loss against Indonesia's Yoni Rachmanto and is now out of the game.

Ralf Souquet narrowly beat out Filipino qualifier winner Carlo Biado in his first match and went on to beat Qatar's Bashar Hussain Abdulmajed. Souquet will next square off against Filipino Dennis Orcollo.

Orcollo squeaked out a win against fellow Filipino Demosthenes Pulpul and then beat out countryman Allan Cuartero by the same 9-7 margin; let's see if he keeps that winning margin streak going in his match against Souquet.

Former English Billiards World Champion Robbie Foldvari gave number one seed Antonio Lining a run for his money before losing out 7-9. He then repeated that margin, losing out against China's Hao Wu on the left side. Foldvari now takes a seat in a spectator's chair.

Women's Division Highlights

In a stunning upset, world number 2 Allison Fisher lost to qualifier Wu Jing from China. She will now face off against Finland's Marika Poikkijoki on the loser's side.

World number 1 Ga Young Kim breezed through her match with Aradhana Nail, winning 9-0. Kim was then narrowly defeated by Yun-Mi Lim and waits to take on the winner of the Fisher v. Poikkijoki match on the left side.

Reigning World 10-Ball Champion Jasmin Ouschan spanked Canada's Veronique Menard 9-0, going on to beat Helena Benjamin 9-3 in her next match. Ouschan now waits to take on Siming Ching.

Korea's Yu Ram Cha beat out Suniti Damati by a landslide and then took on Yuan-Chun Lin, beating her tidily 9-4. Cha will next face off against Yun-Mi Lim in round 2.

China Open Champion Siming Chen beat out Reggie Ann Biagcong 9-1 and then dispatched Line Kjorsvik handily to the loser's side as well 9-7. Chen will go head to head with Jasmin Ouschan in round 2.

Play will commence at 2:00 p.m. (+7GMT).
