On his way to the Dixieland Classic, Pagulayan also won the Big Tyme Classic One Pocket Division.

Fellow Filipino players were also top finishers in the Big Tyme Classic One Pocket:

  • 4th Francisco Bustamante
  • 5th/6th Dennis Orcollo and Warren Kiamco

Pagulayan also won the 2018 Scotty Townsend Memorial One Pocket.

Pagulayan considers winning the World 9-Ball title in 2004 as one of his best winning moments.
