Cheers erupt as the water ball leaves the end of the cue with a cool stroke, travels through three cushions and meets the second ball.
As the crowd holds its breath and concentrates on one cue after another, the player is Spain’s ‘Living Legend’ Daniel Sanchez.
After winning 16 three-cushion World Cups and four world championships, he landed in Korea’s professional billiards league, the PBA.
“Hello, I’m Daniel Sanchez. See you in June.”
Sanchez, one of the world’s “Four Kings,” along with Yasper, Bromdahl, and Kudrong, who has landed in the PBA and is dominating the league.
Starting this season, he and Kudrong have built a formidable rivalry that will be a real test.
The PBA also welcomed “Mr. Magic” Seigneur from Tourquier, who captivated fans with his artistry and showmanship.
