Hong Kong’s Robbie Capito faces a big test at the Predator World 10-ball Championship on Tuesday, as he takes on newly crowned Las Vegas Open champion Wiktor Zielinski. After crashing out of last week’s pool tournament in the early rounds, the 20-year-old got back to winning ways on Monday, beating 72-year-old professional Jose Parica from Manila 8-4. Capito faces Zielinski in the second round after the young Pole defeated the Oscar Dominguez 8-6 at the same venue Rio Hotel and Casino where he won his most recent title. Capito, who will compete in back-to-back world championships, is looking forward to the challenge of taking on the 21-year-old Zielinski, who was the youngest player to ever win a Euro Tour event at the age of 16 at the 2017 Treviso Open. After Las Vegas, Capito will join his Hong Kong teammates in the UK for the WPA World Nine-ball Championships, which run from April 6 to 10. A total of 128 players are taking part in this week’s US$226,000 tournament, where the double elimination format gives losers a chance to get back to the winners draw. There were some upsets in Monday’s first round, with the top two players in the world, Albin Ouschan from Austria and Aloysius Yapp from Singapore, losing on the first day of the event. Defending champion Eklent Kaci from Albania survived a scare before getting past Tommy Tokoph 8-5.
