US Open 10-Ball Rounds 1 & 2 Results – Chris Melling Defeats Defending Champ Orcollo in Round 1

Posted on by Alison Fischer

As of this evening (Saturday, July 20), two rounds of action have finished up at the 2013 US Open 10-Ball Championships. The game of 10-Ball, which has become the preferred rotation game for many professional pool players, is the main focus for the pro players who have traveled from all parts of the globe to get a shot at taking home the top honor.

Arguably the biggest match of the early rounds of the event came in round one. While half of the bracket received first-round byes, defending champion Dennis Orcollo was matched against England’s Chris Melling, who sent him out of the winner’s bracket right off the bat with a final score of 9-7.

Thus far, two matches from this event were featured in TheActionReport.com live stream arena. The first match to take the stage was between Filipino rising star Carlo Biado and Manny Chau of Peru. Chau, who has become a prominent name in the American pool circuit in recent years, got out to a strong 4-0 lead in this match, but the momentum shifted in Biado’s direction after Chau fouled. Biado ran out from there, then broke and ran the next rack to go 4-2. From that point, Biado stayed in gear and went on to tie 4-4. Chau got the lead back to go 5-4, but Biado won the next two to edge him 6-5.

Chau knotted the score again at 6-6, and the next rack ended up being a turning point in the match. After getting out of line, Chau played a great safe, barely allowing Biado a one-rail kick. Biado kicked to return a safety by putting Chau in the same position, locking the cue ball up in a tougher spot. Chau would not get a hit on the ball, and Biado ran out with ball in hand to lead 7-6. In the next rack, Chau had a big opportunity to tie the score again after Biado had an uncharacteristic miss…however, with the heat on, Chau missed a simple five ball in the side pocket, allowing Biado to get to the hill at 8-6. It looked to be all over for Chau in the next rack with Biado running out, but he rattled an easy nine ball, and Chau took it to 8-7. Chau was unable to take advantage in the following rack, and Carlo Biado put away the match at 9-7.
