Allison Calls Foul on Herself! Taiwan Topples China: Quarter Final Thrillers at the Worlds!
Manila, Philippines– The battle of the Brits came into play with Kelly Fisher and Allison Fisher were duking it out for the right to advance into the semi-finals for the quest to become this year’s World Champion. In the other quarter-finals bracket, Chinese-Taipei took on mainland China with Pei Chen Tsai versus Xiaoting Pan. Both matches came down to the wire in a one game sudden death. Dragon Promotions brings the greatest women’s tournament in the world once more to the Philippines with the 2013 Yalin Women’s World 10-Ball Championship! This year’s edition will take place October 28th – November 4th,2013 to luxurious Resorts World Manila, an upscale hotel and casino adding onto the dynamic atmosphere of the coveted championship. An elite 48 world class lady pros, the best of the best from 20 countries, will attend the event to decide who is the World Champion. Matches will air live daily from 2pm-7pm Manila time on www.insidepool.tv and broadcasted worldwide by ABS-CBN Sports and affiliates.
Kelly Fisher had been fighting a bad illness the entire week, including vomiting , blurred vision, and a terrible sore throat. The TV match had to be switched off her in case she had emergencies. Despite that, the former World #1 showed her mettle when she took a huge 5-1 early lead and eventually held at 7-4 needing only 1 game to advance over her roommate Allison Fisher. However, the greatest woman’s player of all time would not go silently into the night as she clawed back with a clutch 10-Ball cross side bank, and later a crucial 5-Ball bank to tie the match at 7-7 for a one game decider. Allison broke in the final rack and had to play a defensive shot on the first ball. Stunningly, Allison fouled and actually called the foul on herself when the referee did not see the infraction. Kelly took the gift and made a solid under pressure runout for the win.
„I didn’t really know what to do on the last shot. But when I shot the cueball I knew I had fouled. Even though the referee didn’t call it, I had to call it on myself. I’ve always done that my entire career“, said the regal like Allison Fisher.
„That shows alot of class and poise from Allison to do that without hesitation. And it’s not like it’s an early game. It’s the rack decider to be one match away from being World Champion. That’s why she’s who she is, the greatest woman to ever play the game“, commented Charlie Williams, Executive Producer of the event from Dragon Promotions. Williams had also coached Allison in several majors in recent years.
In the other quarters, Pei Chen Tsai also took a commanding lead early on and held at 7-5 over China’s Xiaoting Pan. But Pan fought hard including an amazing clutch bank at 7-6 down on the 10-Ball that tied the match at 7-7. In the final game, Tsai had the first opportunity to runout and she did perfectly until she choked and missed the 10-Ball! She left Pan a very tough cut shot on the 10-Ball, and Pan shot and missed the entire 10-Ball! She did manage to hit the 10-Ball from behind after hitting the cushion, but left Tsai straight in for the win.
Today’s semi-finals will be Kelly Fisher ENG vs Yu Han CHN and Rubilen Amit PHL vs Pei Chen Tsai TPE
No Taiwanese or Chinese has ever won the World 10-Ball. If Kelly or Rubilen wins, she will become the first player to win the World 10-Ball twice.
