Vietnam secures a spot in Las Vegas

Do Hong Quan plays a jumpshot

Shy and quiet, Do Hong Quan from Vietnam is the kind of player who prefers to let his game do the talking. And it was proven on Day 2 when he secured himself a spot at the Party World Pool Masters 2010 at Las Vegas by beating Chan Keng Kwang of Singapore 9-7.

A gold medalist in the Men’s 9 Ball Double discipline at the 25th SEA Games in Laos last year, Hong Quan showed his skills as he won his early matches easily with wins of 9-2 over Hassan S’hafraz in the first match followed by wins over Oliver Downey from England and Day 1 runner up Goh Chin Teck of Singapore.

Hong Quan played well in the Final and was soon at the hill leading 8-4 with 1 more rack to win. A careless mistake in rack 13 cost him the rack and Keng Kwang quickly closed in to narrow the gap to trail 8-7 . Breaking off in rack 16, Hong Quan potted the 6 ball and had a clear view of the 1 ball. Ball by ball, he potted each ball and cleared the rack to win rack 16 and match.

Do Hong Quan now joins Ahmad Taufiq of Brunei on the plane to Las Vegas awaiting 2 more qualifiers from 2 remaining days.

Below are the results for Day 2 and the Drawchart for Day 3 in PDF version.
