THE King of  Sports 10-ball winner-take-all  billiards crown  belongs  to Edwin Collado.

Collado  edged close friend Paul Padron, 7-6, in their winner-take-all  final   to capture  the title and the  top  prize of  P10,000 at the KoS Restobar, G/F  Pacific Century  Tower, Barangay  South Triangle,  in  Quezon Ave., Quezon City last Nov. 16.

The pride of Caloocan City was very happy for the victory.

“I  have  been joining billiards  tournament before,  but  this is the  first  time  that I  won a title,” said Collado, who started to play the sport  at a very young age but stopped  briefly when he  started to raise a family.

“Actually, my friends have been  encouraging me  to continue playing billiards. I am also very happy that I went up against my friend (Padron) in  the final,” added  Collado, who vowed to  continue his  campaign in billiards tournaments in King of Sports.
