DEHADISTA Sports Bar winner-take-all billiards trophy belongs to Mark Chua.

Chua emerged as the undisputed champion  for the fourth time in five tries, winning 10-6, in the one-hour final held at the Dehadista Sports Bar in Cubao, Quezon City last Saturday, Dec. 3.

Only the  winner-take-all  title last week, which was won  by Pau Galleto, slipped Chua’s hands.
   
“I’m very happy to win in Dehadista for the fourth time,” said Chua, who is best remembered for playing against  billiards legend Antonio “Nikoy” Lining. 
   
Galleto, nicknamed “Pao-Pao”,  topped the copetition with a 10-5 score last Nov. 26.
   
Meanwhile, King of Sports  announces the staging of the Christmas 9-Ball competition, a  three-day, double-elimination  tournament  scheduled on Dec. 16-18.       
   
At stake in the tournament open only to amateur players  is a  total cash  prize of  P50,000  with the champion bringing home the  lion’s share of P16,000  for an entry fee of P500 only.
   
The runner-up will receive P8,000 and the third placer will earn P6,000.       
   
The  fourth up to the 6th placers  will also get consolation cash  prizes:  P4,000, fourth placer; P2,000,  fifth to eighth placers;  and P1,000,  ninth to 16th placers.       
   
The elimination rounds will be held simultaneously at  the Dehadista Sports Bar in Cubao, Quezon City and King of Sports in Quezon Ave.
