New Kababayan Hero

Ronnie “Calamba” Alcano is the new World Pool Champion. He defeated 1996 WPC champion Ralf Soquet in the finals, 17-11. En route to the championship, Alcano defeated two other WPC champions, 1999 WPC Champion Efren “Bata” Reyes in the round of 64 and 2005 WPC champion Wu Chia-Ching in the quarterfinals.

Alcano is from Calamba City. He is the third Filipino WPC champion. Efren Reyes won the championship in 1999 and Alex Pagulayan in 2004.

No wikipedia yet for this guy but with his patented soft break and winning the championship crown in front of his Kababayans, an article about him will definitely be on the wiki site soon.
