Pool - 2015 Steinway Classic
1st-3rd November 2015 / Steinway Billiards, New York, USA
Hot off the heels of Yu-Hsuan Cheng’s success at last weeks US Open, and Ko Pin Yi’s supreme treble major winning year, there was yet more Taiwanese dominance at the 4th Annual Steinway Classic.
An impressive international field assembled at the New York venue for the $7,500 first prize event; many of the players having been in the States for a while in preparation for last weeks ‘Big One’ in Chesapeake.
However, despite the star cast, and action switching from 9 ball to 10 ball, the outcome was a very similar story.
In an all Taiwan final, former World Number 1 and recent WCOP winner, Chang Yu Lung went undefeated throughout to eventually beat Ko Pin Chung (brother of double WC Yi) 13-11 for the title.
