Manila, Philippines – Team Asia’s going to be just a tad more tough to beat with the #1 ranked player in the world on their side. At the tender age of 20, World #1 Siming Chen of China will be anchoring the East. Siming had a dominating performance at the last Queens Cup, and this year Asia is expecting her to bring much more of the same. The 2015 AM8.com Queens Cup is igniting the greatest rivalry in women’s billiards . On April 16-18th, 2015 the second installment of the AM8.com Queens Cup will feature champions vs champions as the best women from Asia will take on the best in the West! Last year, Team Asia dominated Team West during the 3 days of competition. This year the USA & Europe will be looking to even the score. The AM8.com Queens Cup will be hosted by the award winning Resorts World Manila Casino & Hotel and sponsored by Andy Cloth , Aramith Balls, Viking Cue, with live streaming by Red Cube Productions. The Queens Cup is a Dragon Promotions production.
Siming Chen became an overnight sensation at 17 years old when she came out of nowhere and won the China Open, defeating a star studded international field including legendary Allison Fisher in the finals. Since then, she has won a litter of titles in Japan, Philippines, China and came close twice in two World Championships with silver medals. She has easily stayed in the Top 3 in world rankings since her debut, and most experts believe she will be a multi-world champion before long.
„It’s great to play with Siming again as we were teammates before. She is such a great player and has a great personality. I still remember she made that great shot to win the last Queens Cup. Did I mention how much we love winning? „, said the always friendly Filipina Rubilen Amit, Captain of this year’s team. She adds, „Siming is our ace for sure, and the anchor of Team Asia.“
„I’m so happy to be be a part of the AM8.com Queens Cup again. I will do my best. I hope my wins help our team to victory once again“, said Siming Chen. When asked how she felt about this year’s team she replied, „Our team is full of sharp shooters. Each of them have unique advantages. We are united by common goals, so we need to stick together. Only that can help us to win.“
„I’m not sure if I’ve seen a player who’s more gifted than her. She has so many weapons that not many out there can handle her game. She also has a mountain full of heart, intensity, and killer instinct. And she’s not even old enough to drink a beer yet in America. Now that’s scary“, said Charlie Williams , Executive Producer of the AM8.com Queens Cup .
The Queens Cup will showcase the rivalry between the Asians and their western counterparts in Europe and USA, very similar to the Ryder Cup in golf or Davis Cup in tennis. Elite professional ladies from their respective countries and continents are selected onto two sides representing the East and West. The event will last 3 days in a 10-Ball format that will conclude when one team reaches 10 match wins. Style of play will include singles, doubles, triples, and 4-on-4. Captains will be put to the test to create the best strategy in partnerships and chemistry of match-ups. If the matches go 9 to 9 hill-hill, a final 4-on-4 play will set the scene for the dramatic conclusion.
The AM8.com Queens Cup brings a level of excitement and pressure never before seen in women’s billiards. On April 16th, The Empresses of Pool Battle for Glory.
