Chen Posts Undefeated Run at Fast Eddie’s Billiard Stop
Fast Eddie’s Olhausen 9-Ball Tour / Amarillo, TX
The Fast Eddie’s Olhausen 9-Ball Tour drew 43 players to their August 9-10 stop at Fast Eddie’s Billiards in Amarillo, TX. The small but talented field boasted a star line-up, with Jui-Lung Chen going undefeated to take the top-place prize.
Chen, a frequent winner on the Fast Eddie’s Tour and also their player of the year for 2007, breezed through the winners’-side bracket, brushing off opponent after opponent, until he arrived at the hot seat match. There he was faced with young gun Joey Gray from Oklahoma City, OK. In this tight match, Chen came out the double-hill winner 7-6.
Now on the west side of the chart, Gray was faced with Glen Atwell, who was fresh off of a 7-5 defeat of Rafael Martinez, who is a threat in any event. Atwell couldn’t fade Gray’s desire for a rematch with Chen, and Gray advanced by virtue of a 7-5 victory. Once again facing Chen, though, Gray stumbled. It was almost as close as they get, but Chen still managed to pull off a 9-7 defeat of Gray.
