In what was probably the best APC event ever, held at the prestigious Winford Hotel Resort and Casino in Manila it was the Jakarta All Stars who dominated the event. They scored 113 frames, 17 frames ahead of the second-place getter, Singapore Stingers with Bangkok Heat finishing in third.
It was clear at the end of the first day with Jakarta leading by 14 frames that the other teams would have trouble chasing down Jakarta.
To cap off a great team performance Jakarta All Star, Lee Oakes won the APC Super Singles Championship.
We also saw some improved performances from Phnom Penh and Saigon both fielding more competitive teams this year.
Special thanks to Jesse Gonzales and this Management team for doing such a great job organizing this great event.
