Yang finishes on top in Grand Final on 2008 Asian Tour

Yang Chin-shun from Taiwan won the Guinness Asian 9-ball Tour Grand Final.

In the final he beat two-time world champion Wu Chia-ching (Taiwan) 11-9 to claim the $36,000 first prize. Wu received $10,000 for second place. The two Filipinos Dennis Orcollo and Alex Pagulayan shared third place.

This was Yang's seventh win on the Asian Tour but first since the 2007 Singapore event. He's been to nine finals in total. That's one third of the 27 events ever held.

Chang Jung-lin was the defending champion and ranking leader going into the event. He went out in the group stages after two wins and two losses.

The event was held 24-26 October at the Mal Taman Anggrek, Jakarta, Indonesia. It was the sixth and final event of the season. Only the top 11 players in the rankings were invited.
