MANILA, Philippines – Filipino cue artists once again proved they are some of the best in the world as Dennis Orcollo, Francisco “Django” Bustamante and Alex Pagulayan dominated the US Open 10-Ball Championship last weekend in Las Vegas.

Orcollo came in first place, Bustamante in second place and Pagulayan in third place in the field of 96 players from all over the world.

Orcollo defeated “Django” in the finals of the tournament.

“At least tatlo kaming Pilipino na 1,2,3,” Bustamante said. “Hindi ako nagkaroon ng chance kay Dennis na makalapit ng score, maganda yung tira n’ya, ayaw sumablay.”

Meanwhile, Jun Almoite, Amang Parica and Santos Sambajon did not make it to the finals, but were among the top contenders in this year’s cue sport international tournament. Mornings @ ANC, May 21, 2012.
