Chieh-Yu Chou emerged victorious in the inaugural PBS Women Showdown, a prestigious $100,000 tournament held in Las Vegas that showcased the talents of 16 of the world’s top female pool players. The reigning world number one secured her title by defeating Kristina Tkach in three sets, earning both a coveted championship crown and a substantial $35,000 winner’s prize.

Chou’s triumph marked the culmination of a highly successful week in Vegas, where she not only claimed the PBS Women Showdown title but also secured victory in the Apex Mixed Doubles event alongside her partner, Jung-Lin Chang.

Earlier in the semifinals, Chou showcased her prowess by outplaying Jasmin Ouschan, while Tkach secured her spot in the final by defeating Tzu-Chien Wei. With this win, Chou’s remarkable tally now includes four PBS titles, featuring notable victories in two world championships (the 2023 Predator WPA Women’s World 9 Ball and World 10 Ball), the 2023 Apex Wisconsin Open, and the 2024 Apex Mixed Doubles, in addition to the 2024 PBS Women Showdown.
