Orcollo, top player of Bugsy Promotions top honcho Perry Mariano didn't waste no time to beat compatriot Raymund Faraon to registered 9-2 victory in Group 15 in their do-or-die match in the loser's side.

"Suwerte lamang kasi laging pabor y'ung bola. Saka sinabi ko din kay Boss Perry (Mariano) na kailangan makauna agad tayo kasi magaling din talaga si Raymund (Faraon)," said Orcollo, a former fisherman from Bislig, Surigao del Sur.

Orcollo earlier suffered a heart-breaking loss to Andrew Kong of Hongkong, 9-5, last Tuesday that relegated him to the loser's side. "Medyo nakahinga na tayo kasi nakapasok na sa knock-out stage si Dennis (Orcollo). Hope mahawakan niya ang momentum," added Billiards Managers and Players Association of the Philippines (BMPAP) founding head and Busgy Promotions top honcho Ceferino "Perry" Mariano who finished 3rd place in the 2012 Hermes 10-Ball Cup last June 22 at the Hermes Sports Bar in Hollywood Square Building in West Avenue, Quezon City with Rogel S. Garcia and Dr. Robin V. Medina dominated the top two spot respectively.

Newest Filipino Casualty is Ramil "Bebeng" Gallego who yielded to Hsu Kai-lun of Chinese-Taipei, 9-7, in Group 2 , Joyme Vicente suffered a 9-8 sorry lost to Huidji See of the Netherlands in Group 1. Oliver Medenilla is the first Filipino casualty.
