Shane Van Boening, winner of Fast Eddies Olhausen 9-Ball Tour’s previous event in San Antonio, repeated the double dip to take down the latest installment of the tour. This weekend however, it was David “G” Gutierrez who fell twice to the former U.S. Open Champion (9-6, 7-5).
Shane came into the finals after ending Jui Lung Chen’s bid to earn a rematch with David G, 7-6. Chen, the three time, and reigning tour Player of the Year, made a great run through the tournament to place third after losing his first round match to Gutierrez 7-5. Van Boening denied David G the opportunity to accomplish the “triple dipper” by winning the Friday night ring game, the cue raffle and the main event.

Before being knocked to the one loss bracket by David G, he had victories over Paul Blank (9-0), Ceasar Sanchez (9-1), Joshua Johnson (9-1), Charlie “Hillbilly” Bryant (9-4), and Jody Hall (9-4). David Gutierrez defeated Jui Lung Chen (9-5), Richard Rivas (9-4), Uriah Richardson (9-1), James Davis Jr. (9-0), Robert Newkirk (9-6), and Van Boening (9-6). James Davis Jr. earned 4th place after losing to Jui Lung Chen in the 1-loss bracket.
