Part Two of the Sang Lee Series Airs This Sunday
Jun 14, 2006, 12:17 PM

This Sunday, June 18, part two of a four part series on the 2005 Sang Lee International Open will air at 10 p.m. EST on America One Sports, a division of America One Television Network.

This episode will feature the exciting semifinal matchup between the celebrated "Turkish Prince", Semih Sayginer, and four-time world champion, Dick Jaspers — as they vie for the $100,000 prize fund and a spot in the final.

The tournament took place last August at the Carom Café Billiards, in Flushing, N.Y., and served as a memorial for the tournament's namesake, Sang Chun Lee, who passed away on Oct. 19, 2004, at the age of 51. As player, organizer, promoter and room owner, Lee devoted his life to "making billiards beautiful in America," and rejuvinated three-cushion billiards in the United States.

This series captures "The Road to the Finals," of the event, which featured 76 of the strongest three-cushion players in the world, from 23 countries, competing for the most prestigious title in the game and $100,000, the richest purse ever offered on American soil.

The four-part series began airing May 7 and will culminate Aug. 1. For TV scheduling information, check your local listings or visit www.americaonesports.com.
