Team Red, led by Fatima Yousif of Sihanoukville, carved through the field to take the title with a magnificent seven wins out of seven, including beating Team Purple 13-8 in Sunday’s final.

The names of 120 participants from Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and other nations were drawn from a hat on Saturday to establish the eight teams that competed in pool games the same day.

Cambodia Beer sponsored the annual event this year, supplying free-flowing beer to the thirsty players, who enjoyed ‘boat race’ chugging relay competitions between games.
