Indonesia hires Pauk Sa as coach, lesser chance to compete in world championships

The Myanmar Billiards and Snooker Federation (MBSF) said that Indonesia hired Pauk Sa, the world’s top billiards player, as a coach for four months and the MBSF has encouraged Pauk Sa to compete in the World Championship to be held in Qatar.
As there is a world championship to be held in Qatar in November next year, MBSF wants Pauk Sa, who is coaching in Indonesia, to compete.
“Pauk Sa defeated Singaporean Peter Gilchrist once at the Viet Nam SEA Games and once at the Cambodia SEA Games. Peter Gilchrist has won six times the world championships and six consecutive gold medals at the SEA Games. Pauk Sa was hired by Indonesia and Malaysia as a coach because he won against such a famous person. Indonesia hired him as a coach until December.
“He has been encouraged to compete in the world championships in Qatar this November. If he competes, he can become the world champion. Currently, because he is coaching there, he does not have time to train to compete in the world championships, and because he signed a contract to coach, it is also difficult to get permission to compete in the world championships according to the contracts,” said U Min Naing, Chairman of the Myanmar Billiards and Snooker Federation.
Myanmar’s Pauk Sa is known among international athletes by the nickname “Silent killer” and is a person who can break 1,000 points, and today there are not even five people living in the world who can break 1,000 points, according to the MBSF.
Pauk Sa is a person who can grab two gold medals for the country in the Billiards Single Event at the 2022 Viet Nam SEA Games and the 2023 Cambodia SEA Games. He has also visited Malaysia as a coach in July 2023. — TC/KZL
