Efren Reyes wins the first IPT-King of the Hill tournament. He got $200,000 for the championship and will be the defending champion next year. Wow… $200,000 for 2-days work…. that’s more than 10 million pesos… Bustamante won $70,000 and Manalo $60,000…
The Filipinos Really DOMINATE the competition… the games maybe shown on Fox Network next year…

The very first (International Pool Tour) IPT – 8-Ball King of the Hill is happening in Orlando, Florida in America.Competing in this event is ourvery own Efren Bata Reyes, Francisco Bustamante, Marlon Manalo and Amang Parica.
