Tri-State Tour / Edison, NJ

Leo Liu marched through a field of 32 entrants to defeat Rhio Anne Flores in the finals of the Tri-State Tour’ February 28 stop. The $500-added, C-D handicapped event was hosted by Sandcastle Billiards in Edison, NJ.

 

From among the winners’ side final four, Liu and Ben Sadowski survived two hill-hill battles against Dave Fitzpatrick and Flores, respectively, to meet each other in the hot seat match. Liu sent Sadowski to the semifinals with a commanding 6-1 victory.

 

On the one-loss side, it was James DeGiosafatto and Duane Dailey emerging from among the final 12 to meet Fitzpatrick and Flores. They’d both survived hill-hill battles of their own against Peter Brennan and Guy Triolo II to meet Fitzpatrick and Flores and ended up in the tie for fifth place. Fitzpatrick got by DeGiosafatto 6-3, as Flores downed Dailey 6-1. It was Flores advancing to the semifinals against Sadowski with a 6-4 win over Fitzpatrick in the quarterfinals.

 

In the semifinal match, Flores shut out Sadowski 6-0 and turned her attention to Liu. In spite of a nearly three-hour wait, Liu opened the race to 6 with four racks before Flores responded with two of her own. They traded racks, which gained Liu the hill, and then she finished it 6-3 to take top honors.
