Chu claimed his first JOY event title with a 19-15 win over Yu Haitao this afternoon. The former national team player from Jilin, China has been top-drawer throughout the tournament, beating nine players in a row to take away $22,400 and the title he has long wanted.
Both players played solid. Chu opened up a 18-10 lead to get on the hill first as Haitao benefited from several errors by his opponent to get back to 18-15. In the last rack Chu seized the opportunities with a break-and-run.
