Lalisang recovered well from an opening frame split to fire four strikes-in-a-row from frame four as Surasak stumbled to a back-to-back split in the fifth and sixth frames to trailed by 42 pins.

The Indonesian struck out again from frame nine to put the match beyond the Thai, winning convincingly to claimed his second tour title in Indonesia. Lalisang reached the finals after dispatching the sole surviving Hong Kong national bowler, Michael Tsang, 240-193.

Surasak was also impressive en-route to the finals with victory over Michael Mak of Hong Kong, 259-236 in the first round and another Hong Kong national, Eric Tseng 258-227 in Round 2 before beating Adhiguna Widiantoro of Indonesia, 214-171 in the second semi.

It could have been a double celebration for Indonesia had it not for technical issues in the bowling ball used by Novie Phang. The Indonesia had defeated Kim Eun Jung, 231-227 to win her first tour title but was disqualified.

Phang also rolled the first perfect game by a women competitor in the history of the tour when she defeated team-mate, Alisha Nabila, 300-223 in Round 2. The first bowler to rolled a 300 conincidentally was by an Indonesian, Ryan Lalisang back in 2004 in Malaysia.

Phang reached the finals after she sailed past another team-mate, Anak Agung Ayu 223-147 in the first semi-finals to advance to the title match.
