Yama­moto of Japan via a 9-3 victory in the first round of the tournament which offers a total prize fund of $100,400 with the winner getting $28,600 top purse. The 56-year-old veteran art­ists arranged a second-round duel with compatriot Mark Aristo­tle Mendoza, who shocked 2011 World 9-Ball Pool champion Yukio Akagariyama of Japan, 9-7. Veteran campaigners Lee Van Corteza, and Jeffrey de Luna, and unheralded Dante Razalan also made their presence felt in the event sanctioned by the World Pool-Billiard Association.

    Ramil Gallego and Valeriano Pajuay Jr., on the other hand, were relegated to the losers’ bracket after succumbing to Tai­wanese players Chen Yung-Chieh (5-9) and Chang Yu-Lung (5-9), respectively.
    Former world champion Fran­cisco Bustamante, Elvis Perez, Carlo Biado, Jundel Mazon, Den­nis Orcollo, Antonio Lining and Johann Gonzales Chua were still playing as of press time. (E. Noguera, MS)
