Billiard News – Despite a number of players attending the CCS Nationals in Vegas, the weekend of June 16-17 saw 26 players arrive for the Canadian 30K Tour. Hosted by Dunlop Billiards in Barrie, ONT, this event featured Chris Courteaux making a comeback from the one-loss side to win the title.
On the A side, Courteaux was sent to grind through the one-loss side after a hill-hill loss to Jeff Robson, while Jeff Dick prevailed over Wayne Tate 5-5. Courteaux fought his way back through matches against Mike Patrowicz 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals against Wayne Tate, whom he soundly defeated 5-1. Wreaking revenge upon Robson, Courteaux met him in the semifinals and sent him away with a 5-2 thrashing to advance to the finals. It was an even match, and after Dick reached a 3-0 lead, Courteaux cranked up his engine to score five straight games, wresting the title from Dick.
