Biado begins 8-Ball Masters main draw campaign

World champion Carlo Biado takes on Wu Zhengyu of China as he opens his campaign in the 2018 World Chinese 8-Ball Masters main draw being held at the Olympic Stadium in Qinhuangdao City, China.

The reigning World 9-Ball Championship titlist is the lone Filipino in the main event of the tourney following the withdrawal of veteran cue master Alex Pagulayan and the failed attempt of World 9-Ball runner-up Roland Garcia and Eric Enriquez Bayhon in the qualifying round.

Garcia scored four straight victories in the losers’ bracket including wins over Yana Shut of Belarus via a 13-5 decision and Andreja Klasovic of Serbia, 13-5.

He also ousted Carlos Garcia of Spain and Ryan Fleming of Great Britain.

But Garcia suffered a 7-13 loss to World Pool Series Grand Finale champion Klenti Kaci of Albania, 7-13, in their do-or-die match.

On the other hand, Bayhon suffered two consecutive defeats against Jin Zhonghe of France (6-13) and Chan Ken Kweng of Singapore (1-13) to bow out of contention.

Pagulayan opted to withdraw one week before the tournament for unspecified reason.
