Barry Manning came back from a defeat in the hot seat match to earn him first place in the Mid-South PVA Jillian’s Shootout the weekend of November 15-16. The $2,550-added event, sponsored by the Mid-South Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of American, drew 18 entrants to Jillian’s Game Room in Memphis, TN.

Manning had defeated Jeff Tanner 7-4 for the right to meet Charlie Hans in the battle for the hot seat. Hans had sent Charles Interrante west with a 7-2 win. Hans gained the hot seat with a 7-5 win over Manning.

On the one-loss side, Terry Guess and Don Sample were there to meet Interrante and Tanner, Guess having defeated Jeff Dolezal and Chris Billings, as Sample worked his way through Zack Allen and Alex Bolar. It was Samples and Interrante advancing to the quarterfinals, where Interrante dropped Samples into fourth place and moved on to the semifinal match versus Manning. Manning defeated Interrante 5-3 and got his second chance at Hans.

In the true double-elimination final, they battled back and forth to double-hill before Manning prevailed to force a second set. He earned top honors with a second set 7-4 win.

A 12-player, $1,050-added, second chance tournament saw Zack Allen emerge to win the $225 top prize. In the finals, he defeated Carl Flemons and took home the $200 second place purse. Sonny DeGuzman finished in third place, collecting $150, with Anthony Gilliam in fourth, taking home $125.
