He advanced to the next round by defeating the 2019 Philippine SEA Games gold medalist from Thailand.
Aung Phyo defeated Ali Hussein (Iraq) by 4-1 in the Round of 32 Stage and Ali (Iran) by 4-0 in the Round of 16 Stage.
In the quarter-finals, he beat Alobaidali (Qatar) 4-3 and in the semi-finals, but lost 5-1 to Chadar (India) in the semi-final and missed out on the final.
Win Ko Ko, who competed with Myanmar snooker player Aung Phyo, was eliminated from the round of 16.
The duo also competed in the 2022 World Snooker Championships in Qatar before the tournament.
