‘I can’t breathe.’
The person who meets him may feel this way. It’s not flashy, but it feels like a ‘big wall’ has been built.
Choi Seong-won’s style of billiards, which suffocates the opponent’s tempo and rhythm, is captivating fans.
Choi Seong-won (Huons), who has a brilliant career including becoming the first Korean player to be ranked No. 1 in the world 3-cushion rankings, defeated ‘Vietnam Express’ Nguyen in the quarterfinals of the 6th professional billiards PBA tour ‘NH Nonghyup Card PBA Championship’ held at KINTEX PBA Stadium in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do on the 14th. 바카라사이트닷컴
He defeated Quoc Nguyen (Hana Card) 3-1 and advanced to the semifinals.
Choi Seong-won, who won his first professional trophy in the previous tournament, has inflated his dream of winning two tournaments in a row.
Although he struggled at the beginning of his season debut, he won 12 games in a row
including 7 consecutive wins in the previous tournament and 5 consecutive wins in this tournament. If he adds two wins
he will reach the top spot for the second time.
The match between Choi Sung-won and Nguyen that took place that night received a lot of attention from fans
with the number of YouTube viewers reaching 31,000 at the moment. Choi Seong-won’s average (1.767), which led to a come-from-behind victory
was respectable and he recorded 8 high runs. On the other hand, Nguyen, who won the set in 7 innings with a high average of around 2 points in the first set, had an extremely low final average of 1.069.
Why did Nguyen’s rhythm, who had gained momentum by hitting 7 high runs in the first set
plummet in the second to fourth sets? Experts see Choi Seong-won’s unique ability to dominate the board.
PBA advisor Nam Do-yeol said, “Choi Seong-won is a good player. He is calm and runs the game well.
Because he thoroughly and calmly combines offense and defense, he has a hard time with opponents who cannot do as he pleases.
“It’s because Choi Seong-won’s pace stops him,” he analyzed.
Choi Seong-won’s billiards style is not flashy.
He doesn’t move lightly.
He does not hit quickly, but plays the game slowly and consistently, without any change in facial expression.
Fans love his flashy hitting, but experts value his sticky play, which puts pressure on his opponents and keeps the next ball’s position in mind.
Advisor Nam Do-yeol said, “He does everything he can to attack, but thinks of defense as a matter of chance.
As a foreign player, Marco Zanetti has that style.
Fans may like attack billiards, but experts evaluate it as high-level billiards,” he said.
In fact, Choi Seong-won surrounded Nguyen little by little, ending the second set in the 11th inning (15-5).
He took the tempo from his opponent by taking the third set (15-8) into the 9th inning.
In the last 4 sets, he reached 15 points (average 3.750) in 4 innings with his best attack power
including 8 high points, and fans also became aware of the charm of his winning billiards.
Seongwon Choi will face Wonjun Choi, who won the championship in his first year as a professional, in the semifinals.
The fight between Choi Seong-won, who makes the opponent a scapegoat with his own play no matter who he meets, and Choi Won-jun, a practical fighter trained in the field, is expected to be a close match.
Fans are paying attention to whether Choi Seong-won’s suffocating billiards will continue or whether high-run specialist Choi Won-jun’s concentrated hitting will hit.
