Carlo Biado stamped his class, ruling the Jogja 10-Ball Open International Billiard Tournament 2018 Sunday at Rama Billiard in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
The 34-year-old pool wizard bested fellow Filipino Jundel Mazon, 13-11, in the final to take home the $10,000 cash prize.
His latest conquest further established his position as one of the top cue masters in the world after also winning the 2017 World 9-Ball Championship that earned him the distinction of being named as one of the three Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Athlete of the Year awardees.
Biado first downed hometown bet Ricky Yang of Indonesia, 11-5, in the semifinals, while Mazon edged compatriot Hushley Jusayan, 11-9, to setup the all-Filipino championship match.
Mazon bagged $6,000 for his runner-up finish, while Jusayan claimed $2,000 for placing third.
