PBF 3rd Philippine International Open 2019
June 10 - 16, 2019 • Coronado Lanes, Starmall EDSA, Manila, Philippines
Podium finishing for Indonesians

16th June, Manila Indonesia's Billy Muhammad Islam and Ryan Lalisang ended their campaign at the PBF 3rd Philippine International Open by finishing first and second runners-up in the Men's Open Masters while Aldila Indryati also finished second runner-up in the Ladies' Open division.

2019 Asian Youth Singles gold medallist and Youth Boys first runner-up, Merwin Tan of Philippines defeated challenger and second-seed, Islam 237-193 in the final stepladder match to win his first international title since moving up from the junior to the senior ranks.

Tan started off poorly with a split in his opening game and stumbled to another open frame in the third as Islam marked all his frames for a 23-pin lead. Although the Indonesian managed to roll a double strike in the seventh and eighth frames, Tan found his rythmn to strike home to clinch victory.

Islam ousted compatriot and top qualifier, Ryan Lalisang, 267-243 in the all-Indonesia semi-final match to earn a crack at the title but could not repeat the form he showed earlier. Tan pocketed the top prize of 750,000 pesos (approx. US$14,400) as champion.

Islam settled for 350,000 pesos while Lalisang took home 175,000 pesos. In the earlier Round 2 finals, Tan topped the round with 1887 to advance to the stepladder finals as topseed. Islam totaled 1815 thanks to a huge game of 289 in the fifth to finish second while Lalisang fired a big game of 254 for a total of 1747 to robbed defending champion, Sam Cooley of Australia a place in the stepladder finals.

Meanwhile, third-seed Indryati crashed out in the semi-final match after losing to second-seed and 2016 World Youth Masters silver medallist, Amabel Chua of Singapore, 192-202. Chua went on to edge topseed and 2017 champion, Lara Posadas-Wong of Philippines, 212-190 to win the Ladies' Open Masters crown.

Posadas-Wong got off to an unlucky start by conceeding a split in the opening frame. But Chua did not take the opportunity to pull away by stringing consecutive strikes in the first four frames. Chua finally found her line to reel in three strikes-in-a-row from frame 5.

Although Posadas-Wong responded with a double in the sixth and seventh frames, another split in the eighth frame more or less decided the tie in favour of the Singaporean. Chua, who had finished second with 1656, 74 pins behind Posadas-Wong in the earlier Round 2 finals, ousted third-seed, Aldila Indryati of Indonesia, 202-192 to earn her crack at the title.

Chua took home the top prize of 300,000 pesos (approx. US$5,770) as champion leaving Posadas-Wong settling for 150,000 pesos as first runner-up. Indryati picked up 75,000 pesos as second runner-up. Reigning AMF World Cup champion, Krizziah Tabora of Philippines missed the cut for the stepladder finals by four finishing fourth.

A total of 87 Men's Open from 12 countries and a total of 32 Ladies' Open from four countries competed in the week-long PBF 3rd Philippine International Open held at Coronado Lanes, Starmall EDSA in Mandaluyong City.
