Mamin Calm (NH Nonghyup Card), who is familiar to fans as the ‘Kudlong Killer’, wrote a new history by becoming the first Vietnamese player to become the professional billiards PBA champion.

On the 16th, Mamin Calm defeated Oh Tae-jun with a set score of 4-1 (15-7 12-15 15-10 ㅡ 15) in the PBA (men’s) final of the ‘High1 Resort PBA-LPBA Championship 2022’ held at Wonchuri Hall, Mountain Plaza Auto, High1 Resort, Jeongseon, Gangwon-do on the 16th. -8 15-10).

With this, Maminkam achieved his first thrilling victory in 2 years and 11 months since his debut in the professional billiards PBA in January 2020 as a wild card. Until then, Maminkam’s best performance was the quarterfinals recorded in the first competition (SK Rent-A-Car Championship) in the 2020-21 season.

Maminkam is the first Vietnamese player to reach the top since the launch of the PBA. In the 2021-22 season 2nd competition (TS Shampoo Championship), 토토사이트 Nguyen Phuong Linh reached the final and won runner-up, which was the best performance of a Vietnamese player until then.

With the victory of this Mamincalm, the 2022-23 season continued the strong trend in which foreign players swept 4 out of 5 championships. Cho Jae-ho was the only Korean player to lift the trophy in the first round (Blue One Resort Championship). David Zapata (Spain) won the 2nd, Birol Yumaz (Turkiye) won the 3rd, and David Martinez (Spain) won the 4th.

Maminkam, who is considered to be the driving force behind the 3-cushion craze in Vietnam, has been recognized as an international powerhouse since his amateur days. Even after he entered the PBA, in the last 2021-22 season, he consistently produced a good record, ranking 4th in average (1.671).

In particular, Maminkam is well known to fans with the nickname ‘Kudlong Killer’. He stopped Kudron’s winning streak, which was on a 23-game winning streak in March this year. At the SK Rent-a-Car Championship, the opening game of the 2020-21 season held in July 2020, he won a set score of 3-2 after the best match in the quarterfinals against Kudron.

However, Maminkam has not been able to establish a relationship with winning. After winning a difficult opponent, he lost to an easy opponent in vain. In the end, his long wait came to an end as he achieved his first victory in this competition. His winning prize is 100 million won.

On the other hand, Oh Tae-joon, who reached the final for the first time after a full set match against strong champion candidate Cho Jae-ho (NH Nonghyup Card) in the semi-finals, had to be satisfied with the runner-up finish, failing to overcome Mamin Calm’s wall in the final.

In the beginning, Oh Tae-Jun’s momentum was good. Oh Tae-joon, who came up after winning the set score 4-3 against Jae-ho Cho (NH Nonghyup Card) in the afternoon of the day, got off to a good start by winning the first set of the final.

Oh Tae-Jun scored 5 points, including a 2-point bank shot, in the 9th inning after a tight match at 7-7 to seize the victory. Then, while Maminkam slowed down, he added 1 point in 10 innings and 2 points in 12 innings, bringing the first set to 15-7.

However, Maminkam’s counterattack began in earnest from the second set. Maminkam lost 7-12 in the 2nd set until the 8th inning. However, after 9 innings, he scored 5 high runs, including 1 bank shot, and turned the game to the starting point at once.

Then, while Oh Tae-joon only hit 3 consecutive blanks from the 9th inning, Mamin Calm added 1 point in 10 innings and 2 points in 11 innings to return the game to 15-12.

Maminkam, who gained confidence by winning the second set, also won the third set 15-10 and seized the victory. Maminkam, who trailed 9-10 until the 9th inning, finished the set at once by concentrating on 6 high runs including a bank shot in the 10th inning.

Ma Min-kam, who had the flow fully brought in, also took the 4th set effortlessly and moved one step closer to his first win. Maminkam’s strokes were full of confidence.

Maminkam, who took the lead by scoring 8 consecutive runs in 2 innings, broke Oh Tae-jun’s will to pursue by accumulating 2 runs each in 3 consecutive innings, following 1 run in 4 innings.

In the end, Ma Minkam won the victory comfortably without losing concentration even in the 5th set, confirming his first PBA championship in his life. He became the 15th champion in PBA history to reach the top.
