After losing to Bangkok Heat who have been the benchmark of Asia Pool Challenge the last four years, the Jakarta All Stars finally won the event by defeating Bangkok Heat 88 to 84 frames.
At the close of play on day one, Jakarta and Bangkok were level at 48 frames with Singapore on 47 and Saigon on 44 frame so all these teams were in serious contention leading into the second day.
As proven in the past consistency is important to win this event and Jakarta All Stars did exactly that. After the sixth round with just one round the race was down to two teams – Bangkok and Jakarta. In an exciting finish with Bangkok Heat (1) showing why they have been the best team for the past four years started very strongly and were up 7 – 1 against Jakarta All Stars (1) but then Jakarta won every remaining frame. With Jakarta having an extra match to play in the final round to even the number of games played Jakarta All Stars(2)beat Manila (2) 8 to 4 frames. This result sealed the win for Jakarta All Stars.
After every city playing 144 frames of pool over tow days the event was over and there is no doubt that the level of competition has risen again.
