Davis Captures Blaze Billiard Tour Championship
Blaze 9-Ball Tour / Egg Harbor, NJ
by Jose Burgos
The Blaze 9-Ball Tour Championships was held January 27-28 at Atlantic City Billiards. A determined field of 93 players came out to play, including Ryan McCreesh, Mika Immonen, Jerry Slivka, and Allen Hopkins. When the dust had cleared, though, it was Mike Davis standing in the winners’ circle.
Leading the way was McCreesh and Immonen, who ended up playing each other for the hot seat. This turned into a blow-out, with McCreesh defeating Immonen 9-3. The bigger story, though, was Davis coming from the west side of the chart to reach the finals against McCreesh. Davis had to best McCreesh twice, and he did not shrink from the challenge, winning the first match 7-2 and the second 9-4.
