Antonio competed on December 4 & 5 int he Merlion Cup, a Satellite tournament organized by the Singapore Lions Subbuteo Club. 19 players from Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong were competing. Antonio took the honors as he played the Open final against the top asian player Yusni Den Mulia. The Singapore player won the title, confirming he's the best player of the moment in Asia. Well done to Antonio for reaching the final.
There was a big surprise at the Singapore Open last week-end as Marco Todini, Antonio Carabillo's friend, who's also residing in HK, was making a come-back after being out of the game for almost 20 years! Welcome Marco!
