Meanwhile, Malaysian ex-national, Tang Joh Six defeated tour debutant, Marjo Reyes of Philippines, 198-170 to claim her first tour title. Tang booked her spot in the finals after she had disposed off local hopeful, Jojo Canare, 193-180 in the first women's semifinal match.
In the other semi, Reyes ousted Indonesia's Putty Armein, 231-206 for a crack at the title but her fine run came to an end in the crucial finals. The runner-up had earlier knocked out fellow compatriot, Elaine Florencio in Round 1 and last year's Philippines Open champion, Kang Hyun Ji in the second round.
The champion knocked out another tour debutant, Raniia Nugroho of Indonesia in Round 1 and went on to beat newly-crowned Philippines Open champion, Liza Del Rosario in Round 2.
