Warren Kiamco and Jeffrey Ignacio beat Malaysia 2, 9-3, to give the Philippines a clean start in billiards action of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

MANILA — It’s a double win for the Philippines Tuesday in men’s 9-ball double at the Manila Hotel Tent.

Warren Kiamco and Jeffrey Ignacio beat Malaysia 2, 9-3, to give the Philippines a clean start in billiards action of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

Kiamco and Ignacio could have cruised to a 9-2 win similar to that of Carlo Biado and Johann Chua in the other round of 16 game earlier in the day but Malaysia’s Darryl Chia and Amir Ibrahim stole a rack at Table 6 after the Pinoys failed to put the 8-ball through.

Nevertheless, Kiamco and Ignacio simply won three straight racks with relative ease to secure the victory.
