Eunji Park to play for Team Asia in Queens Cup

South Korea's Eunji Park has been selected to play for Team Asia in the upcoming AM8.com Queens Cup. The 27-year old Incheon native has proven herself a top notch opponent capable of big performances on the world stage. The greatest rivalry in women's billiards is about to re-ignite. On April 16-18th 2015 the second installment of the AM8.com Queens Cup will feature champions vs champions as the best women from Asia will take on the best in the West! Last year, Team Asia had a dominating performance over Team West in a 10-4 final score over the 3 days of competition. This year the quad squad from USA & Europe will be looking to even the score. The AM8.com Queens Cup will be hosted by the award winning Resorts World Manila Casino & Hotel and sponsored by Andy Cloth and Viking Cue. The Queens Cup is a Dragon Promotions production.

"Eunji is an extremely solid player. She has a very consistent style, which has a basis in snooker from her father, a former national coach for South Korea. This has enabled her to topple numerous world champions. She never plays too fast or slow, and keeps a calm demeanor. Which will come in handy under the intense pressure of the AM8 Queens Cup", explained Charlie Williams, Executive Producer of the event.

"I'm very nervous but also excited to play my first time in representing Team Asia. It's a huge honor beyond just ordinary prize money and trophies. It's an awesome feeling to know I will have great players around me every moment, and I am ready to give my all for the team and bring glory to our respective Asian countries", said Eunji Park originally from Incheon, South Korea.
