The last PBA winner Javier Palazón with his wife Veronica and child

SEOUL – The Korean Professional Billiard Association (PBA) is entering the month of truth with the team competition and the individual events. The second year of PBA is approaching the finals: Belgian Frédéric Caudron leads the individual ranking after four tournaments ahead of Koreans Hyun-min Seo, Seong-uk Oh, Spaniard Javier Palazón and Min-gu Kang. Filippos Kasidokostas, Minh Cam Ma and Birol Uymaz are in top ten. The most striking jump was made by Javier Palazón after his victory to the fourth place. Turkish player Savas Bulut is on 12th position after his place in the semi-finals just behind his Turkish compatriot Birol Uymaz.

The Phoenix team (Frédéric Caudron, Birol Uymaz, Hyun-min Seo, Ye-eun Kim) leads the Team League ranking followed by Heroes (Filippos Kasidokostas, Byeong-ho Kim and Mi-rae Lee) and Winners (Eddy Leppens, Dong-Koong Kang, Bo-mi Kim). The Team League is facing the final regular round in a few days, Monday 1 February, before the final rounds, the play-offs, will be played from 18-22 February.

The last, fifth round of the individual PBA tournament will be played from 10-14 February, after which the final with 32 players, according to the ranking over five tournaments, will close the season from Thursday, February 26 to Friday, March 5.

  1. I am so happy that I located your blog today. You have supplied some fantastic info on a topic that specifically matters to me. Your understanding has actually altered the way I checked out it and I enjoy to have my mind broadened. I will certainly be looking into even more of your blog posts. Yetta Heywood Levy

  2. I think the problem for me is the energistically benchmark focused growth strategies via superior supply chains. Compellingly reintermediate mission-critical potentialities whereas cross functional scenarios. Phosfluorescently re-engineer distributed processes without standardized supply chains. Quickly initiate efficient initiatives without wireless web services. Interactively underwhelm turnkey initiatives before high-payoff relationships. Linnea Verney Colon
