Bata and Django won World Cup of Pool 2009

Our very own Efren “Bata” Reyes and Francisco “Django” Bustamante won the recently held World Cup of Pool in Quezon City. They won (11-9)against the German team composed of Ralph Souquet and Thorsten Hohmann in this scotch doubles tournament.

The other Filipino tandem in the event, Dennis Orcollo and Ronnie Alcano, were eliminated by the Germans in the semi-finals (9-6). Bata and Django meanwhile survived their match (9-8) against 2007 winners, China’s Li He-wen and Fu Jian-bo to set up the stage for the race to 11 finals.

Bata and Django stormed the finals with a 4-2 lead before the Germans tied it at 5-5 and eventually led by 1.

The Filipinos forced a tie at 6-6 before Souquet made it 8-6 in their favor. However, Efren and Django won five of the last six racks to win the title which they previously won in 2006 against the Americans.

They pocketed $60,000 and put the Philippines on top of the billiard world once again. Congratulations to our Filipino teams.
