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.
