by Jose Burgos
The Blaze 9-Ball Tour stopped at Leisure Time Billiards August 26, 2007, where a field of 37 players came out to play. Topping players like Beau Baur, Oscar Bonilla, Mark Vidal, Bristol Bob Begey, and Mike Miller was Tony “The Silent Assassin” Robles.
Leading the top half of the bracket, Robles notched wins over Sean Gavins 7-1, Brian Cap 7-1, Carol Martorana 7-2, Wali Muhammad 7-3, and Marc Vidal 7-0. Miller led the bottom half of the bracket, with wins over Jorge Rodriquez 7-4, Vinnie Leone 7-2, Gordon R. 7-3 and Bristol Bob 7-3.
When Miller and Robles met in the hot seat match, it was all Robles, who won easily 7-3 and sent Miller to the one-loss side, where Bristol Bob awaited. Miller ran away with the match 7-3 to reach the finals. The rematch between Miller and Robles saw Robles pull off a double-hill victory.
