/ 07:48 AM November 28, 2011

FILIPINO Francisco “Django” Bustamante finally got his redemption.

Seven days after absorbing a crushing defeat to Indon Ricky Yang in the semifinals of the 26th Southeast Asian Games’ 9-ball billiards event at Jakabaring Billiard Arena in Palembang, Indonesia, the Tarlac City native Bustamante edged Britain’s Daryl “The Dazzler” Peach, 9-8, to end the foreign domination in the Philippine Bigtime Billiards (PBB) Face Off Series 10-ball championship last Saturday at the PAGCOR Airport Casino in Paranaque City.

Bustamante, former World 9-ball champion, playing under the banner of Puyat Sports, took a 6-4 lead but Peach regained a 8-7 lead in the 15th rack.

But the 39-year-old Peach, who hails from Castleford, West Yorkshire, England, failed to sink the 8-ball, allowing Bustamante to tie the match at 8-all in the 16th rack.
