Meanwhile, Thailand was denied a double celebration when local favourite, Angkana Netrviseth lost to tour debutant, Kim Young Ju by just 1 pin in the women's deciding finals. The 19-year-old had an almost spotless game without any open frames and including a double strike in frames sixth and seventh.
Despite starting off with a double strike by the Korean, a miss in the third frame allowed her opponent to draw level. But a strong double strike in the seventh and eighth frames pressured Angkana into just knocking down 6 pins in her final throw to end the match 202.
Needing only a strike in the tenth frame, Kim hit a perfect and solid strike sending her supporters cheering wildly. All she needed was to spare the bonus frame and with a cool composure, the Korean duly oblidged to finish with 203 and clinch the title.
