In a thrilling turn of events, Hoang clinched the Jacoby Scottish Open 2024 title, making history as the first player from Southeast Asia to claim a pool title on the World Nineball Tour.

The final match began with a strong start from Oscar Dominguez of the United States, who pulled ahead to lead 8-4. However, Hoang remained unwavering and mounted an extraordinary comeback, claiming six straight games to ultimately seal his victory with a score of 10-8.

The Jacoby Scottish Open attracted a diverse field of 104 billiards players from across the globe, including ten of the top-ranked cueists. Hoang’s exceptional performance earned him a well-deserved prize of GBP10,000 (approximately US$12,530).

Hoang, a 36-year-old Vietnamese cueist, has made his mark on the international stage. He is now set to participate in the upcoming UK Open Pool Championship 2024, adding to his growing list of prestigious competitions.
