Moore Wins Reno 8-Ball Hot Seat
Steve Moore won the hot seat and is sitting pretty in the 8-ball division of the U.S. Bar Table Championships, being held at the Sands Regency Hotel & Casino in Reno, NV. He will await his finals opponent from one of the five remaining players on the one-loss side of the chart Sunday.
In the evening rounds Moore was first faced with Darren Appleton, who won the 10-ball division earlier this week. It was a close race, but it was Moore prevailing 5-3. At the same time, in the other undefeated match, Glen Atwell bested Nick Kruger 5-2 in order to meet Moore in the hot seat match. Atwell, who took the 9-ball division Friday, took Moore to double-hill but succumbed and is now awaiting an opponent on the west side.
Stan Tourangeau sent Shane Van Boening packing after a hill-hill match and will face Kruger in Sunday’s morning round. After his earlier loss to Atwell, Tyler Edey is still alive and eliminated Jerry Matchin 5-2. His next opponent will be Appleton. The winners of those two matches will advance to the quarterfinal match.
