Skinny Bob's SEP 11/12
BASTROP AND PIERCE RULE ROUND ROCK
David Henson, James Davis Senior
Saturday’s play ended early and brought back the final 12 on Sunday to battle for over $6,500 in cash. The final four winners’ side pitted Henson and Cesar Garcia, while the bottom paired Gutierrez and Bryan Sanders. On the one loss side, Ray Tull defeated John Newsome, Lopez bested Patrick Hill, Doug Young eliminated Bayaua, and Davis Sr. beat Adrian Lloyd. On the winners’ side, Henson overcame Garcia 9-5 and it was Sanders over Gutierrez 9-4. Henson secured the hot seat over Sanders, 9-6. Davis Sr. plowed through the one loss side and won 9 consecutive matches which included two over Henson in the finals 9-6, 7-2, and secured his first tour win.
Liz Kirkman, Kim Pierce
In the ladies 9-Ball Event, Kim Pierce dominated the 16 player field with wins over Diana Cardona 7-1, Nancy French 7-6, and Julia Rapp 7-0. She secured the hot seat over Liz Kirkman and bested her once more in the final match, 7-1. Pierce finished the event undefeated for her first Lone Star Tour victory.
Skinny Bob’s Billiards provided impeccable tournament conditions all weekend long, however, Sunday afternoon the entire grid went down for several city blocks in Round Rock. Unfortunately, Skinny Bob’s lost power. Therefore, the remaining matches were played at “The Grand” in Austin (formerly Eric’s Billiards). Their staff welcomed players and accommodated the tour with (5) 9 foot Brunswick Gold Crowns, centennial balls, and measle cue balls to finish the event. The tournament was completed in a timely manner despite the unfortunate power outage. LSBT thanks The Grand for their support in a time of crisis.
LSBT recognizes its official sponsors: Poison Cues, Delta-13 Rack, LeagueShirts.com, Barnett Ranching; and A-Tex Family Fun Center. The next Lone Star Event is September 25th-26th at Houston’s Billiard Saloon in Houston, Texas.
