George Osipovitch wreaked revenge upon Nick Restivo in the final match of the Tri-State Tour’s August 9 stop to take top honors. This stop was hosted by Comet Billiards in Parsippany, NJ, and featured B-D handicapped 9-ball.

Osipovitch’s first meeting with Restivo occurred in the winners’-side final match. Osipovitch and Restivo advanced to the hot seat match after notching wins over Asia Cycak and Eddie Manlulu, both with 7-1 scores. Restivo sent Osipovitch to the west side of the chart with a 7-3 victory and awaited his opponent in the finals.

Manlulu, now on the one-loss side, made a bid for the finals by besting Wayne Nicholson 7-2, while Cycak fell to Guy Iannuzzi 7-4. Continuing his streak, Manlulu eliminated Iannuzzi 7-4, dropping him into fourth place. But Manlulu was stopped in his tracks in the semifinal match, where Osipovitch was determined to earn a rematch with Restivo in the finals and ousted Manlulu 7-2.
