WPBA Carolina Women’s Billiard Classic

It was a fight between China and Korea when Xiaoting Pan and Ga-Young Kim met in the finals of the Carolina Women’s Billiard Classic. It was a long, tough match that went the full thirteen racks, but ultimately Kim prevailed 7-6.

The match was a complete seesaw battle from start to finish, unlike the preceding two semifinals. Things started off excitingly enough when Kim, who won the lag, caromed into the 9 ball after making the 1, pocketing both.

From there the ladies traded racks one after another. Finally Pan reached the hill first with a sporty bank on the 6 ball with Kim still at 4, but the latter made it a double-hill thriller after two separate scratches by Pan handed Kim two more racks. The final game was a lesson in excellent defense, with neither player gaining an inch until Pan left Kim a one-rail kick on the 4 ball that she made with flair. Left with five balls on the table, Kim was able to clean up, winning the final match 7-6.
