Orcollo, Kiamco on course for billiards gold

KUALA LUMPUR – Dennis Orcollo and Warren Kiamco, two of the country’s finest cue artists with five SEA Games titles between them, assured themselves of at least a bronze as they stamped their class on their Malaysian rivals in a 9-ball doubles quarterfinals face-off at the KLCC Hall 4 here yesterday.

Legendary Filipino pool player Efren “Bata” Reyes, however, still just couldn’t make a breakthrough in English Billiards, dropping out of contention right after their first match in the doubles event.

Reyes and partner Francisco dela Cruz were bundled out by their Vietnamese rivals, 90-100, 33-100, 72-100.

Orcollo and Kiamco saved the day for Team Phl as they trounced Ibrahim Bin Amir and Chooi Yew Wah, 9-6, to move to the semifinal round.

The Philippines is the titleholder in this event won by Kiamco in partnership with Carlo Biado in Singapore in 2015.
