Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit, from Taguig, reached the finals of the 2007 Women’s World 9-Ball Championship (sponsored by Amway), recently held in Tao Yuan, Taipei. She took home 2nd place and pocketed $10,000; $20,000 went to the champion (Xiao-Ting Pan). What’s more impressive however, isÂ she defeated both Allison Fisher and reigning world champion Ga-Young Kim in the earlier rounds. Now this definitely proves that Rubilen is world class. AndÂ finally in the world billiards map, the Philippines is now well represented in both genders.
