Displaying their full worth as world champions, Carlo Biado and Rubilen Amit showed might after claiming gold in the men's and women's 10-ball competition.

Biado flipped all cards and got his revenge plot complete, beating Johann Chua, 9-3, while Amit held her nerve steady in getting back at teen sensation Chezka Centeno 7-5 in their own finals.

Right on the get go, Biado built up on his impressive accuracy, racing to an insurmountable lead. Safety plays have gotten into Biado's favor, giving his compatriot a tough time getting out of it.

Meanwhile, it was a back-and-forth affair for both Amit and Centeno as their familiarity to each other made it a close match.

A missed shot in rack 11 spelled doom for Centeno, which Amit capitalized and further ran out the table and took gold afterwards.

This will be Amit's 10th career SEAG gold medal, following her success in the 9-ball event the other day. Biado, on the other hand, will add another gold in his growing list of achievements, following his last SEAG gold in the 29th edition in Kuala Lumpur.
