Alex Pagulayan is the new World Champion after a brilliant 17-13 win over Chang of Taiwan in an epic match that saw The Lion come back from 10-4 and 11-6 down to take the title.

A brilliant match and a very deserving World Champion.

Best wishes

When Alex was down 10-4 he had a very daunting task ahead of himself.Firstly he was playing a very determined underdog who was having the tournament of his life.Not only that, the underdog had virtually the whole (jammed packed partisan) crowd on his side, lustily cheering on his every victory.They could smell blood and Alex was being slaughtered.Yes, it was Alex seemingley against the whole world.Furthermore he was dealing with the demons of past MAJOR tournament defeats, after finishing 2nd in last years WPC and the 2002 US Open.

No one including me knows exactly what he was thinking at that point(being down 10-4)however, it certainly wasn't a great situation to be in.No pool player wants to be known as the guy who couldn't win the big one.Yes Alex was in a very difficult situation and 10-4 could have easily become, "That's a big ten-four", which means, "game over baby".

But Alex THE LION valiantly battled back and would not be denied. No wonder they call him "THE LION." Today in Taipai he has certainly shown,that he has THE HEART OF A LION!!! Way to go Alex!
