Four Players Without Loss at Bankshot Billiards
Seminole Pro Tour / Jacksonville, FL
The Seminole Pro Tour’s October 10-12 event has wound down to its final 12 players, with a winner to be crowned Sunday. This event is being hosted by Bankshot Billiards in Jacksonville, FL, and boasts a $10,000-added prize purse.
In the winners’ bracket, Jeremy “Double J” Jones survived a hill-hill bout with Bobby Garza to advance to play Jonathan “Hennessee From Tennessee” Pinegar, who had just sent Steve Moore to the left side in another double-hill match. Jones easily handled Pinegar, sending him to follow Moore 8-3. Jones’ next opponent will be Neil Fujiwara, who bested first David Howard 7-5 and then Jerry Calderone 8-6.
In the other winners’-bracket match, Gabe Owen and Tommy Kennedy, both former U.S. Open champs, will play. Owen came through with two easy wins, defeating James Roberts 7-3 and Dave Grossman 8-3, while Kennedy had to face down Hunter Lombardo 7-5 and then John Ditoro 8-2.
In the elimination rounds, Moore is still alive and will fight Ditoro Sunday morning. Lombardo will play Pinegar, Tony Crosby plays Jerry Calderone, and David Broxson will meet Dave Grossman.
In the race for Player of the Year, Corey Deuel held a big lead going into this event, with the only contender being in the form of Steve Moore. With Deuel making an early exit, Moore has a chance to take the Player of the Year honors—but he will have to win the event.
