    CARLO Biado fell short in his bid to become a back-to-back world 9-ball champion on Thursday when he lost to Joshua Filler of Germany, 13-10, in Doha, Qatar.

    The 35-year-old Biado settled for the runner-up prize of $20,000 as he failed to become the second back-to-back world 9-ball champion since Earl Strickland did it in 1990 and 1991.

    The 21-year-old Filler won his first major title as he took home the top prize of $40,000.

    Biado reached the finals early in the day after beating Shane Van Boening of the United States, 11-6, in the semifinals.

    Filler scored six consecutive racks to grab a 11-7 lead, but Biado came storming back when he scored three straight to cut the deficit to one rack.

    Biado looked headed for a tie but scratched on the 22nd rack with only five balls remaining on the table.
