Black Comes Back in Pechauer Billiard Finals

J. Pechauer Southeast 9-Ball Tour / Gulfport, MS

by Skip Maloney

Mike Black took tour director Tommy Kennedy to the bitter double-hill end in the finals of the J. Pechauer Southeast 9-Ball Tour January 24-25. Black prevailed in the $1,000-added event that drew 26 entrants to Skeeter’s Billiards in Gulfport, MS.
 
Black and Kennedy were among the final four on the winners’ side of the open event on Saturday, but Kennedy went west on the heels of 9-5 victory by Bill Dunsmore. Black, in the meantime, bested Kevin Duffy 9-6 and then gained the hot seat with an identical 9-6 win over Dunsmore.

Kennedy and Duffy moved over to take on Jason Breland and Morty Davis, who would both end up in the tie for fifth place. Kennedy and Duffy squared off in the quarterfinals, in which Kennedy prevailed 9-4. Kennedy avenged his earlier defeat versus Dunsmore by besting him in the semifinals 9-4 and earning a shot against Black in the finals.

Black took an early 2-0 lead in the finals, and the two traded racks back and forth to 6-4. At that point, Black surged ahead, reaching the hill first. Kennedy responded with a four pack of his own to knot things at double-hill. Kennedy broke and was midway through the rack when he scratched shooting at the 5 ball. Black took over and finished it to capture the first-place prize.

In a $500-added amateur event that drew 30 players Sunday, Jason Moran took first place, defeating Kevin Duffy in the finals 7-5. Glen Kelly finished in third place, with Josh Charbonnet in fourth. David Walters and Stacy Toomer tied for fifth place.
