English 8-ball ace Darren Appleton conquers 10-ball at the world championship in Manila.
Story by Ted Lerner
With only a short, straight-in 10 ball waiting to be pocketed, and knowing he was about to be crowned the first-ever world 10-ball champion, Darren Appleton felt a flood of emotions sweep over him. So, instead of quickly downing the striped ball and beginning the celebration with his mates in the crowd, the Englishman coolly traipsed back to his chair, took a sip of water, toweled down his cue, and tried to take in the enormity of what he was about to accomplish.
