Fresh off Megan Young's victory in this year's Miss World pageant, another Pinay's done us proud on an international scale!

Cebu's Rubilen "Bingkay" Amit, one of our country's pambato in this year's Yalin Women's World 10-Ball Championship at Resorts World Manila, bested England's Kelly Fisher in a nerve-racking finals match, 10-7, to win the title last night, November 4!

This victory makes Amit the first to win this 48-player tournament twice (she first won it during the inaugural staging of the event in 2009) and only the third Filipino to win two world championships, following the footsteps of Efren "Bata" Reyes and Ronnie Alcano. Ikaw na talaga, Rubilen. Ikaw na ang "That's My Tomboy" ng Women's World Pool! Congratulations!


"It's heaven. I'm very happy because I've been in a slump for the longest time," Rubilen told reporters moments after victory. "I feel wonderful. I feel blessed with this people in the crowd." For all her efforts, Amit took home the $21,000 cash prize. Holy shiznit, that's almost a million pesos!

With that kind of money, we would totally try to emulate her success, except we're really not that good at pool.

Mas mahuhusay pa nga 'tong mga 'to sa amin eh...

Sige, sayo na yung pera, ate! Now let's all slow-clap Rubilen for once again proving that when it comes to billiards, Pinoys always get the last ball. Naks!
