This is Hoang’s first international title and the first international title for a Vietnamese pool player on the World Nine-ball Tour. Hoang’s prize for winning the Scottish Open was 10,000 GBP.

Reaching the final match of the Scottish Open wasn’t easy for the Vietnamese player. After an initial loss to Ko Ping-han of South Korea, Hoang had to compete in the loser's bracket.

Following this setback, Hoang staged a remarkable comeback with victories over the world's number 1 player, Sanchez Ruiz of Spain, and American player Oscar Dominguez, who is ranked 42nd in the world.
