Yuan-Chun Lin wins her 2nd title at the Amway Cup

Story and Photos by Alison Chang (alison-chang.com – Taiwanese passion for pool!) Taipei – The championship game of 2015 Amway eSpring International Women 9-Ball Championship in Taipei Gymnasiums was between Yuan-Chun LIN from Taiwan and Rubilen Amit from Philippines. The final was tense and close, went up from 3:3, 5:5 and 9:9 until Lin broke the tie to take the lead and game point 10:9. In 20 racks, Lin broke and missed one ball, but was able to come back to the table and won the game after Amit’s fatal error on the 3-ball. Lin’s second Amway Cup trophy with the final score 11:9 brought her a prize of $34,000. Although being struggling throughout recent years, Yuan-Chun Lin had her first challenge in the tournament, to play Kelly Fisher in the quarterfinal. Lin’s 5:1 early lead turned 7:6 after multiple misses and illegal breaks, but she gathered up and advanced 9:6. The young talent from China Liu Yuchen was Yuan-Chun Lin’s semifinal opponent. Lin trailed for most time of the game and was 8:9 behind, one game shy of elimination. The […]

Round Of 32 Begins In A Wild Ride

With the knockout stages underway at the Women’s World 9-ball Championship in Guilin, China, the pressure is already proving too much to bear for some players. By Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Jin/ my147.com (Guilin, China)–If you like your pool to resemble a roller coaster ride with plenty of hair raising twists and turns, then the next two days here at the Women’s World 9-ball Championship in Guilin in southern China will surely be everything you could have ever wanted. This prediction is based on the drama that transpired today inside the Guilin gym, where Judgement Day jitters affected not only the wannabes, but even the sport’s biggest stars. Even straight in 9-balls normally made a thousand out of thousand times in practice were bobbling in the jaws under the intense pressure. The first order of play today was to trim the field down to 32 where the players would switch to a single elimination knockout, race to 9. (If anyone had any doubts that Asia is the dominant region in pool, […]

Fisher Rises From The Depths

Facing sudden elimination on Day 1, Great Britain’s Kelly Fisher shows Austria’s Jasmin Ouschan the door and survives to play another day at the Women’s World 9-ball Championship. By Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy of Jin/my147.com (Guilin, China)–Kelly Fisher has been around professional pool long enough to know that sometimes in this sport, as in life, you have to go through hell to get to heaven. Hell in this case for the 2012 World 9-ball Champion was losing her first round match on day 1 today at the Women’s World 9-ball Championship against hall of famer and pool’s most recognized personality, Jeanette Lee, 7-4. The Brit, who three months ago had open heart surgery to repair a congenital defect, had trouble with the lightning quick speed of the table. The match was even halfway, but Fisher gave away too many shots and the Black Widow waltzed. In the double elimination group stages, Fisher knew her back was suddenly against the wall. “Now it’s cutthroat time,” she said while waiting for her next […]

Glamour Girls, Ethnic Culture And 9-Ball Pool

The 2104 Women’s World 9-ball kicks off with a lavish opening ceremony that could only happen in the world’s most populous nation. By Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Jin/my147.com & Alison Chang (Guilin, China)–Visitors to China, especially those traveling here for events, conferences, trade shows, and other gatherings are often left in awe at the over-the-top hospitality that their Chinese hosts generously put on offer. This is especially true prior to the event beginning as attendees can find themselves being  treated to lavish meals, cultural performances, sometimes copious amounts of fire-starting alcohol, long winded and important sounding speeches by dignitaries, and plenty of good natured back slapping and glad handing. I have been to China perhaps one dozen times over the last five years to cover pool tournaments. The size of the welcome is not always the same prior to the beginning of a tournament, as it depends on who is promoting the event. One thing you can be sure of in China, however, is that the organizers will want to make […]
