RUAIRI McCARROLL WINS AEPC SUPER SINGLES 2015

After surviving a close encounter with Jakarta’s Alex McMillan in a quarter final, winning 3 -2, Ruairi McCarroll representing Bangkok then cruised through his semi- final to set a grand final challenge with the defending champion, Freddie Soh from Shanghai. The final was surprisingly one sided with Ruairi setting up a 3 -0 lead which placed a lot of pressure on Freddie who then won the fourth frame. The crowd was anticipating a comeback from the defending champion but it was Ruairi who was playing with a lot of confidence continued on his winning way in the next two frames setting up a 5 -1 victory.

 

Third place went to Chng Kheng Leng (KL) from Ho Chi Minh City after he defeated the fast improving Klaudia Djajalie from Jakarta 4 – 2 frames.

THRILLER IN MANILA – BANGKOK VICTORIOUS AGAIN AT AEPC 2014

The Asia Expat Pool Challenge was decided in the last round of matches of the event. With four teams in contention it was a thrilling finish with the positions for second through to fourth being decided in the last two frames. Bangkok secured first place earlier in the last round but with Manila, Singapore and Jakarta all needing to win their last two frames to take out second position it was a battle right to the finish.

In the end it was a tied score of 95 frames for both Manila and Singapore however Manila won on a count back to secure second position and Singapore taking out third position. Jakarta finished fourth on 93 points after a slow start but finish strongly to challenge the leaders.

All seven cities showcased some very talented players and the standard of competition was the highest in the history of the competition. Bangkok’s experience was a deciding factor playing well under pressure.

The event was staged at Resorts World Manila, a world class venue with hundreds of people attending over the two days.
