Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Alex “The Lion” Pagulayan trounced compatriot Ronato “Volcano” Alcano in the 13th Annual Derby City Classic 9-Ball in Indiana, USA last Tuesday.
Pagulayan took home the $10,000 top purse for his latest feat.
“Matagal-tagal na din tayong hindi nagkampeon kasi matagal din tayong nahinto sa paglalaro,” said Pagulayan, a former World 9-Ball and US Open 9-Ball champion.
Pagulayan is putting his focus back to billiards and has been walking seven miles a day to prep himself for the game.
Pagulayan’s next event is the Fat Boy 10-Ball challenge which begins today.
Fellow Puyat Sports ace Efren “Bata” Reyes is the defending Fat Boy 10-Ball challenge champion after beating hometown hero Brandon Shuff, 15-8.
Reyes failed to participate in this year’s edition due to back problems, according to organizers. (PR)
