SINGAPORE – Billiards contributed to the Philippines’ gold rush on Sunday as the pair of Carlo Biado and Warren Kiamco stamped their class over their Vietnamese counterparts, 9-6, in the 9-Ball doubles event of the Southeast Asian Games at the OCBC Arena.

The two survived two dry breaks and an illegal shot, but held steadier against their counterparts in the battle of safety shots to win the gold.

The gold medal was the fourth of the day for Team Philippines.

Earlier in the day, Nikko Huelgas started the day on a positive note with a gold in the men’s triathlon while wushu bet Daniel Parantac and the Philippine Volcanoes both ruled their respective events to add to the haul.
