Will he be able to pass the gateway to his first victory and go the way of Choi Sung-won?
One of the key points to watch at the Professional Billiards Association (PBA) Tour’s 7th Haiwon Resort Championship, which will be held at the Haiwon Resort in Jeongseon, Gangwon-do from the 22nd, is whether Lee Chung-bok (Haiwon Resort) will win for the first time.
Lee, who is known as a “textbook” player for his delicate thickness and ball control, has not won a single individual event on the tour since turning pro this season.
His teammate, Choi Sung-won (Hewons), felt the pain as he failed to pick up his first victory in Tours 1-4, but things are different now.
After breaking the tape at the fifth Tour Huon’s Championship, Choi Sung-won won seven straight matches and reached the quarterfinals at the sixth Tour NHCard Championship.
Lee Chung-bok’s pressure is bound to increase.
Commentator Kim Hyun-seok said, “Lee Chung-bok is very experienced and excellent at controlling the speed of the ball.
However, the professional stage is a completely different environment. His adaptation time is getting a little longer.”
In fact, the rules of the professional game are completely different from those of the amateur game.
It’s a set game with a short time limit, a two-point bank shot system, and a lot of variables.
There are devices to speed things up.
Even the runner-up at the recent Nonghyup Card Championship, Birol Wimaz, said, “The Phoebe is a very difficult stage.
It’s really hard to be a champion.
The difference between winning and losing is a matter of seconds.”
Lee Chung-bok made his debut this season and has no accumulated ranking points. As a result, he will be paired with familiar faces from the Round of 128.
He lost to Adnan Yuksel in the first round and was unable to avoid top players like Semi Signer (Huon’s), Kim Jae-geun (Crown Hae-Tae), Kim Young-seop and Kang Dong-gung (SK Rent-a-Car) in the second through sixth tours. 카지노사이트가이드
He had a chance to defeat Kang Dong-gung in the 6th Tour Nonghyup Card Boat, but he couldn’t get over the hump in a 2-2 tiebreaker.
In billiards, even if you have a high average, you can still lose if your opponent hits one better.
The conditions of the PbA, which require a completely different stance from that of an amateur, have been bothering Lee Chung-bok.
That’s why Im Rae (Hi-One Resort) brought up the topic of “captain’s first win” at the season-opening media day.
Lee Chung-bok’s desire for a first win is even more urgent as he is the captain of Hi-One Resort.
Commentator Kim Hyun-seok said, “It’s not that Lee Chung-bok is unskilled.
No matter how good he is, things can go wrong. If he gets the first win, he can play like Choi Sung-won.
Winning is not the issue right now.”
Whether Lee Chung-bok can live up to his reputation at the club-sponsored event, the Haiwon Resort Championship, fans are eagerly anticipating his sixth or seventh upset.
