Reyes falls as final group is completed

The final of the North American 8-Ball Open Championships is set. King of the Hill winner and pre-tournament favourite Efren Reyes will not be in the final match. After an intense and very close final group Reyes' Phillipino compatriat Marlon Manalo topped the group on 4 wins and a better game winning percentage than German Thorsten Hohmann. Hohmann the former world 9-ball pool champion and current world 14.1 straight pool champion joins Manalo in the final where one player will walk away with $350,000.

The final Group Standings

Player Wins GW%
M. Manalo 4 61.04
T. Hohmann 4 57.27
D. Orcollo 3 56.03
E. Reyes 2 58.87
R. Souquet 1 58.24
E. Stalev 1 53.75

It will be a very tight final with both players playing some fantastic pool throughout the tournament, Hohmann has the best Break & Run percentage and did beat Manalo in the final group last night. However, going into a final the form book can be ripped up!
