Chang takes opening Taipei event on Asian Tour

For the second year running Taiwan's Jung-lin Chang won the opening leg of the Guinness Asian 9-ball Tour.

Just like last year he beat a Filipino 11-5 in the final. Last year it was Lee Vann Corteza. This time it was Joven Bustamante. The prize was also the same, namely $15,000.

In the semifinals Chang defeated Ching Shun Yang (Taiwan) and Bustamante beat Pin Yi Ko (Taiwan). Yang won last year's event in Taiwan.

Chang was the overall winner of the 2007 Asian Tour and also won three events that season.

The competition was held February 29 - March 2 at the Taipei Gymnasium, Taipei, Taiwan. Next stop is Penang, Malaysia on April 4-6. There are a total of six events in the Tour. The last is the Grand Final in Jakarta which is comprised of the top 10 in the overall Order of Merit.

    I just noticed your great pool blog while browsing the net.

    I would like to show you a cool way to show shot layouts directly inside of your blog. This will greatly enhance your readers' experience while reading your posts. Once you have a layout embedded in a post. We will broadcast them through our internet shot browser to more pool players around the net. From there they can jump right into your post with a simple click.

    Some top professional players such as Mika Immonen and Thorsten Hohmann have already embraced this new technology. You are welcome to check them out at:
