"The event this year is so hard with many good team!", said Reyes before the event started.


The final match started with lively music and a boisterous introduction from the MC Adam Zibly, an American fluent in Chinese working in China television. The fans were receptive as the lights twirled and the players walked into the arena. The emotions were high in the East vs West match.



Packed audiences filled the colorful arena daily




Team Philippines took the early lead, and never relinquished it. USA mounted a comeback in the middle when Amit missed an easy 9-Ball but left Archer a awkward but makeable shot. If he makes the ball Lee would have an easy game win to tie the match at 6-6. But he missed and gave Amit/Reyes breathing room to go up 7-5. They would never be that close again as Reyes/Amit closed the match out with a 10-6 final win that ended with a carom shot on the 10-ball.


Players and sponsors raved about the success of the event:


"I have more fun at Dragon Promotions events than any other tournament in the world", said Amit. This was her second win at a DP event not including a bronze medal as well at the World 10-Ball.



Rubilen and Efren thoroughly enjoyed themselves




"Dragon Promotions seem to always have the finger on the pulse of pool and where it will be getting bigger next. They have done a wonderful job here in China, as they have already done in so many other countries", said Jeanette Lee.


"It is definitely the best event that has ever happened in China. As a lover of the sport, I am very happy!", said Liang Xiaolong , President of Top147.com and Pool Bond Magazine, China's top billiards site and magazine.

"I had so much fun at this event. I knew it was going to be good with Charlie and Cindy involved. I'm really glad that I came", said Johnny Archer.


"The World Mixed Doubles was better than what I've seen done thus far in China. Everything was great from the dress and fashion of the players, to the color of the arena, and the atmosphere Dragon Promotions created. The World Mixed Doubles was something completely different in China. They were able to duplicate their success in Philippines and other places to make it successful here in a new market", said Karim Belhaj, CEO of Predator Group.
