Taylor Takes the Top Spot

Taylor Takes the Top Spot
Pechauer All-American Tour / Aurora, IL

by InsidePOOL Staff
Dan Taylor went undefeated to take top honors at the February 23 stop of the Pechauer All-American Tour. Hosted by Rudy’s Place in Aurora, IL, this $500-added event drew 35 players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.
Hailing from Hickory Hills, IL, Taylor slid by Bob Romano 5-4 in the hot seat match. Earlier, in the A-bracket semifinals, Taylor knocked off Shannon Schroeder 5-4, while Romano eclipsed Pat McMullen 5-3. In the B-side final eight, Adam Maloney and Tommy Hernandez eliminated at seventh place Jamie Dolan 4-2 and Tony Gong 4-3, respectively. The progress of Maloney and Hernandez continued in the next round, as each ousted Pat McMullen 4-1 and Schroeder 4-3, respectively, into fifth place. The quarterfinals saw Maloney continue forward, as he knocked out Hernandez on the hill 4-3 at fourth place. But Romano ended Maloney’s run in the B-side finals by a 4-3 margin. The tournament finals featured the undefeated Taylor versus Romano, and Taylor again defeated Romano 5-4 in the first set for the title.
