Both bowlers opened the ninth frame and when Shaker only spared the tenth frame and struck in his last throw for 29 pins, Yeung's strike in the tenth meant all he needed was either another strike to take to match of a spare to force another tie breaker.
But to the disappointment for the local supporters, Yeung had a split and failed to pick up the spare thereby handing the match to the Emirati. The champion had earlier ousted topseed, Yannaphon Larpapharat of Thailand, 213-201 and Hong Kong's Joshua Chow, 209-201 in the first two rounds.
Wu knocked out team-mate Eric Tseng 208-186 in the other all-Hong Kong semi-final match to advance into the finals. The runnerup also posted the tournament's highest game when he beat current tour ranking leader, Hussain Al-Suwaidi of UAE, 267-209 in Round 1.
The seventh and final leg of this year's tour - the ABF Tour Indonesia leg will be held in Jakarta on October 18 which will be the last chance for Asian bowlers to make the grand finals by earning more ranking points which is scheduled for January 2010.
