Craig Hintgen claimed the seventeenth stop on the 2007/2008 Pechauer All-American Tour Saturday, December 1. Hosted by Cuemasters Billiards in Dubuque, IA, this $500-added event drew 17 players despite heavy snow conditions.
Hintgen marched undefeated to the finals. In the hot seat match, Hintgen slipped past Steve Moris 4-2. Earlier in the A-bracket semifinals, Hintgen outgunned Toney Bringman 4-0, while Moris took care of Jerry Behnke 3-1. In the B-side bracket quarterfinals, Adam Behnke and Jerry Behnke dispatched Dan Uthe and Bringman into fifth place by respective scores of 6-2 and 4-0.
In the one-loss side semifinals Jerry Behnke ousted his son Adam 4-3, and Jerry kept his hot hand in the B-side finals by avenging his previous loss to Steve Moris 4-1. The tourney finals could have gone either way, but Hintgen claimed the deciding game in the first set over Jerry Behnke 4-3 for the title.
