by InsidePOOL Staff
Norway’s Line Kjorsvik turned away a field of 33 at the Arizona Women’s Billiard Tour’s February 9-10 stop to take first place. This $500-added event was hosted by Metro Sportz Bar and also dangled a WPBA qualifier, presented by J. Pechauer Custom Cues, for the upcoming San Diego Classic.
The top eight emerged and the first matches called on Sunday were Kristin Haney versus Susan Mello and Edwidge Cavanna against Kjorsvik all playing on the A-side. The B-side started with Holly Sholes versus Susan Wilbur and Susan Williams playing Justine Bishop.
The hot seat match was between Kristin Haney and Kjorsvik, with the Norway native dealing Haney a 7-0 donut. Haney went on to play Justine Bishop in the semifinal match, but again Haney was turned away when Bishop took the match 7-5.
With Haney eliminated from the tournament, Kjorsvik won the qualifier spot before she even had to play the final match.
Bishop went on to play Kjorsvik in the final match. Since it was a true double-elimination event, Bishop needed to defeat her opponent in two sets of a race to 4. As with all of her other matches, Kjorsvik dominated the match and won with a score of 7-1.
