Choclue Winning Taxi… “I Love You So Much” To My Wife Who Cried

“My wife is my biggest fan. I love you so much.”

Murat Najee Choklu (Hana Card), who maintained his career by driving a taxi and a bus to school, reached the peak of his billiard career in Korea. He was even happier to be with his wife, an eternal supporter.

Cho Clu won the 2023-2024 PBA-LPBA Crown Haitai Championship final at KINTEX PBA Stadium in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province on the night of the 3rd, beating Nguyen Kuek (Hana Card) with a set score of 4-2 (12:15, 7:15, 15:10, 15:11, 15:14). Cho Clu, who made his debut this season and won his first trophy, also pocketed 100 million won in prize money.

Thanks to her victory, she jumped from 68th place (5 million won) to 8th place (105 million won) and secured a berth to participate in the PBA World Championship, which is awarded up to 32nd place. The prize money for the World Championship is 200 million won.

Choclu lost one or two sets on the day, but he laughed at the end as he won three or six sets with his indomitable fighting spirit. Choclu, who also helped Hana Card win the team league final in January, enjoyed the joy with his wife, whom he cheered with all his heart from the stands after winning his first individual tour trophy.

“My wife is a huge fan and supporter. She always helps me regardless of my performance. I just want to say that I love her so much,” Cho said at the post-match press conference.

After dropping out of junior high school, Cho Clu, a native of Turkiye, jumped into the front line of his life and used to drive taxis and buses on the side to continue his career after learning billiards during his adolescence. For Cho Clu, the Korean PBA stage and the prize money of 100 million won are of special significance.

“I’ve been disappointed with the UMB in recent years. I think it’s a good organization and I have a good environment, so I entered the league,” Choclue said. “I also considered big prize money and profitability.”

Cho had difficulties adapting to the stage at the PBA in the early and mid-season. Cho was completely different from previous world tournaments such as set system and bank shot. This is why he was pushed out of the top 60 in his individual tour. He had difficulties in team league, such as having to work with his teammates.

However, he overcame it in less than a year.

“I had difficulties adjusting until the middle of the team league. However, as I won the team league title at the last minute and the final MVP award, I have gained personal confidence,” he said.

His humble behaviors are attributable to his strength. “The results of the first eight tours were disappointing. I talked a lot with Daniel Sanchez about tables, balls, and systems, and I also asked Cho for advice.” Sanchez and Cho are some of the world’s best players and belong to a different team than Cho.

Cho also showed off his friendship with his teammate Nguyen during the final match. “Before the match, I talked about ‘Dreams come true’ and ‘Let’s have a good game,’” Cho said. “We were able to win because of Hana Card’s teammates who always cheer for us and give us lots of advice.”

The eyes of Cho-Clue, who received a lot of strength from his wife, are focused on the World Championship (March 8-17, Jeju), where only the round of 32 players compete in the season.
