Edison, New Jersey- American hopeful Dawn Fox will be coming to Asia for the very first time in her life, with her destination being Manila, Philippines. Fox had recently won a USA qualifier for the Yalin Women's World 10-Ball Championship after defeating a bevy of US hopefuls fighting to win a spot into the coveted 48 player field boasting the very best in the world. Her win took place at New Jersey’s Sandcastle Billiards and in 3 weeks bring her to the shores of the Philippine Islands.

Dragon Promotions is pleased to announce the fifth installment of the greatest women's tournament in the world, the 2013 Yalin Women's World 10-Ball Championship. This year's edition will take place October 28th - November 4th,2013 to luxurious Resorts World Manila, an upscale hotel and casino adding onto the dynamic atmosphere of the coveted championship. Final Stage 1 Qualifiers will be held at Star Billiards Manila on October 28-29th and the pre-event press conference on October 30th. An elite 48 world class lady pros, the best of the best from 20 countries, will attend the event to decide who is the World Champion. This year's event is again title sponsored by Yalin Tables, one of the premier billiard table manufacturers of the world with #1 all American made OB Cues joining as the Official Cue of the World Championship.

"Getting to go play in the Philippines where some of the best champions like Efren Reyes, Francisco Bustamante, Warren Kiamco, Dennis Orcollo and Jose Parica are from is very exciting. I've always heard that pool is such a popular sport in the Philippines. I've seen videos and pictures of how big the audience is. That will be nerve racking but exciting at the same time", explains an enthusiastic Dawn Fox of Pennsylvania, USA.

"I remember seeing the Women's World 10-Ball in the news the past years and thinking how awesome it would be to get to play in such an elite tournament. Then, I saw that I could enter a qualifier at Sandcastle Billiards and knew I had to go give it a shot. I played my heart out even though I wasn't sure that I'd go if I won, but then I did win. It took some time to commit and actually say I was going because it will be exciting to see another country, but scary at the same time. I spoke with a friend that plays in the tournament and told her about my fears of leaving the country and she said "Remember, life is most exciting out of your comfort zone". That has helped a lot. I am still nervous of the unknown but ready for the adventure. Who knows how well I'll do, but who cares! I qualified to be there and I will play my heart out just as I did to get there. No matter what happens, I will leave with more than I came with, whether it be knowledge on what I need to work on or a trophy and a check for money. This is definitely a chance of a lifetime!"
