T-11 at The Billiards Cafe

Posted in Uncategorized on March 16, 2011 by poolnight

   T-11 literally came down to the last shot. We had another new winner, and some great pool was played. Many thanks to Calvin and the folks at The Billiards Cafe. Also thanks to Dick Monroe.

        After the first two rounds Dick was leading the pack with 6,400, followed by Rick with 5,900. Rick was hot in round two winning three games. I had the chance to see it close up as I was at his table giving him all my PoolCash, and that meant no final table for me. Dave and Tom both advanced with 4,500 and 4,400 respectively. Ann made the cut with 3,800.

        As the round began, the low numbers were in play, as the first  game went to Dave on the two. Tom won game two on the one pill, and then he drew the one again and dropped a pretty rail first cut shot in the side to get game three. 

       Game four things tightened up and it went all the way to the nine. Dave got a nice layout and he ran to his nine ball for the win. Game five ended in a no winner, setting the stage for a tournament deciding PotShot round. Because “he’s Dave” you can guess who came out on top, and with that shot Dave secured the victory with a PoolCash count of 10,000. Tom finshed second with 6,900. Third went to Dick with 3,700; fourth to Rick with 3,300 and Ann was fifth with 1,300.

     We’re talking to the people at Flat Top Johnny’s about having our next tournament there. Probably sometime in April. Stay tuned for more details.
