2015 CBSA 9-Ball International Miyun Open
9th-15th October 2015 / Miyun Youth & Children’s Place, Beijing, China
CHENG IS CHAMPION IN MIYUN
The latest stop of the lucrative 2015 CBSA International 9 Ball Open Tour was in the Miyun County of Beijing, where an impressive group of players from across Asia assembled to compete for the “JiangShang Holdings Cup”
There were headline matches throughout, although the Filipino interest in the male division was ended in the Last 32.
Current World 9 and 10 Ball Champion Ko Pin Yi was flattened by his younger brother Ko Pin Chung 11-2 in the Last 16, and a round later, recent World Cup of Pool winner Chang Yu Lung (alongside Yi for Chinese Taipei) was destroyed by the same scoreline when facing former W9C Wu Jiaqing.
In-form Wu, who won the Guangzhou leg of the series a few months earlier, made his way to another final when comfortably dispatching Chung in the semi‘s.
Waiting there for Wu would be the familiar face of former childhood practice partner, (when he represented and lived in Chinese Taipei), Cheng Yu-Hsuan.
Wu started brightly in taking a 5-1 lead, but Cheng deliberately kept it tight when fighting back to just a 4-5 deficit.
The now Chinese cueist then took a time-out in an attempt to halt his challenger’s momentum. However, this was to no avail, as Cheng took the lead and held it, coming through a 13-8 victor.
The 27 year old, who is also known as the “Assassinator Scholar”, takes RMB 200,000 prize money, roughly over US$31,000, back home to Taiwan.
November will see the series’ last event of the year as the circuit moves to Jiangsu for the Hongze Event.
