Chezka Centeno re-asserted her mastery over Allison Fisher of England, 9-8, to barge into the final of the Predator WPA 10-Ball Women’s Championships at Klagenfurt, Austria last Saturday.

Centeno had to claw back from a 4-8 hole for her to set a championship match with Yu Han of China, who defeated British bet Kelly Fisher 9-2 in a separate semifinal match.

On her way to the final, Centeno defeated Pao Xiaoting of China, 7-4, in the winner round 1 before blowing past Fisher, 7-3, in the winner qualification to seal her place in the Last 16.

Centeno would then on beat Melanie Sussenguth of Germany 9-0 in the Last 16, dethrone defending champion Chou Chieh-yu of Chinese Taipei, 9-2, in the quarterfinal before toppling Fisher, a Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame member, in the semis.

The two-time Southeast Asian Games gold medalist is already assured of $25,000 (P1.4 million) for just making it as far as the final.

If Centeno pulls off a victory over Yu, who she is facing as of press time, she will be tied for the youngest winner of the tournament at 24 years old along with Jasmin Ouschan of Austria, who won the competition in the 2010 edition held in the Philippines.

She will be also the second Filipina cue artist to win it all in the tournament after Rubilen Amit did the trick twice in 2009 and 2013.

Centeno will also be playing for Amit, who was defeated by Yu 3-9 in the quarterfinal last Friday.

Also waiting for her if she wins is a hefty prize pot of $50,000 (P 2.8 million).
