Meanwhile, Bianca Tofilau of New Zealand won all the four matches in her debut to capture the women's crown. She easily defeated Su Shu-Wen of Chinese Taipei, 210-179 in her opening round and then edged a second Taiwanese 244-241 to advance to the semi-final.
Tofilau and her opponent, Chan Shuk Han of Hong Kong were both struggling after having open a frame each up to the mid-way point of the match. And two more open frames by Chan allowed the Kiwi to beat Chan, 181-179 and make the finals.
In the final match against Chang Yu-Hsuan, Tofilau had gathered four strikes in seven frames while her challenger failed to find one. Although Chang did eventually manage to strike twice in the eighth and ninth frames, it was too little too late as Tofilau went on to claim her first-ever tour title with a comfortable 233-166 victory.
Chang reached the final after she dispatched 17th Kaohsiung International Open first runner-up, Pan Yu-Fen 221-180 in the first semi-final match.
