Mak, who posted 696 in his first attempt a squad earlier, started his second attempt at the 10.00pm suqad with just 214 but picked up his pace with a superb 258 in the second game. The winner of four ABF Tour titles then fired 12 consecutive strikes to roll the tournament's second perfect game.
His effort gave him a three-game series of 772 to add to his first attempt of 696 for a six-game tally of 1468 to become the first bowler to suprass the 1400-mark and to take over the lead. Overnight leader of the overseas pool, Dhruv Sarda of India slipped down to second on 1346.
Mak's compatriot, Rickle Kam also did well to take up third spot with 727 and 609 for a total of 1336. Hengki Susanto of Indonesia occupied fourth with 1295 while newly-crowned Asian School Masters gold medallist, Mostafa Almousawi of Kuwait and compatriot, Faisal Saleem rounded up the top six with 1294 and 1291 respectively.
