This historic win marks the first US Pro Billiard Series title for both athletes, solidifying their prowess on the international billiards stage.

In an electrifying All-Filipino final, Lee Vann Corteza showcased exceptional kicks and safeties, defeating Carlo Biado in two sets with scores of 4-2 and 4-3. Meanwhile, Chezka Centeno, the reigning Women’s World 10-Ball champion beat former world champion Siming Chen also in two sets with scores of 4-2 and 4-2.

The success of the 2024 Las Vegas Open by Rums of Puerto Rico would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors and partners, including Predator Group, Rums of Puerto Rico, Kamui, Yalin, Cue Sports International, Medalla Light, and Samsung TV.
