MANILA, Philippines — Rubilen Amit and Chezka Centeno forged an All-Filipino clash in the third round of the 2023 Kamui Women’s World 9-Ball Championship after surviving their respective matches in the early rounds on Friday (Manila time) in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Amit recovered from a 0-5 deficit to overcome Amber Chen of Chinese Taipei in a hill-hill second-round duel, 7-6, after luckily sinking the nine ball on the right side pocket.
The World No. 5 Amit said she was lucky on the last rack and apologized to Chen for the fluke as she targeted the left corner pocket on that shot.
An unbelievable fluke for Rubilen Amit in her deciding rack win over Amber Chen… 😯
