    DENNIS Orcollo emerged as one of only four Pinoys who advanced to the knockout stages via the main bracket in a relatively disappointing Day Three for Filipinos in the World 9-Ball Championships in Doha, Qatar.

    Orcollo defeated Tomasz Kaplan of Poland, 9-4, in Group 16 to formalize his entry into the round-of-64 where he will be joined by Antonio Gabica, Marlon Caneda and Israel Rota.

    Gabica beat Dominic Jentsch of Germany, 9-7; Rota won over Abdullah Al Yousef of Kuwait, 9-5; and Caneda blanked Nick Ekonomopoulos of Greece, 9-0.

    Former world champion Francisco “Django” Bustamente, however, was sent to the losers’ bracket along with several other Filipinos.

    Bustamante bowed to Manuel Gama of Portugal, 6-9, in Group 11; Lee Van Orteza lost in his hill-hill match with Nick Malaj of Albania, 8-9, in Group 13; Ramil Gallego was beaten by Wang Can of China, 1-9; and Jeff De Luna was defeated by Mika Immonen of Finland, 6-9.
