Choi, who stole the limelight at this year's Asian Youth Championships in Cairo, Egypt by bagging four gold medals, had a poor start in his opening game with 153 but quicken his pace with 192 in the second game.
But the 20-year-old Korean youth scorched the lanes with his first 300 in the third game and beyond expectation, the youngster downed a second 300 in the fourth game. Then Choi shot the historical third 300 in the fifth game.
The overwhelming achievement must have unsettled him a little as he followed it up with 183, 197 and 229 to end the 8-game roll-off with 1854 to finish fifth.
There are three more blocks of 8 games left to play so perhaps Choi can make up some ground and gets selected for the World Youth team which is scheduled to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from June 22 - July 3, 2012. Click here for detailed scores.
