by InsidePOOL Staff
Q’s Bar and Girl in Port Charlotte, FL, hosted the April 21 stop of the McDermott All-American Tour. The stop featured a $500-added purse with 24 billiard players, of whom Richard Broumpton took top honors.
The Riviera Beach, FL, resident ran undefeated to the finals, outplaying Lee Chenman 7-4 to reach the hot seat match, where he comfortably dispatched David Broxson. Broxson had earlier knocked Steve Knoll into the one-loss side 7-4.
In the west side of the chart, Stuart Altez eliminated Knoll 7-2, while Will Bilbrey ousted Chenman 7-5. Bilbrey went on to take out Altez 7-4 but ws stopped by Broxson at that point, who eliminated him 7-3. In the double-elimination final match, Broxson had to defeat Broumpton twice for the title, but Broumpton prevailed in the first set, winning by a decisive 7-1.
By virtue of Steve Knoll being the highest-finishing ACS/CCS member, he qualified for a free singles entry into the 2007 ACS Nationals in Las Vegas, courtesy of the ACS.
