KBP Tour / Jacksonville, FL
by Kay Higgins
Mike DeLawder took first place for the second time at Q-Ball Billiards in Jacksonville, FL, at the KBP Tour’s April 5 event. A field of 13 turned out for the $500-added tournament.
The format was a race to 7 on both sides. Out of the favored players in this event—Daniel, Brown, Mike DeLawder, and Eric Charlton—no one knew for sure which way it was going toward the end. DeLawder was determined, and Charlton make some strong shots that kept the crowd watching, but as Charlton seemed to run a little low on steam, DeLawder pulled away and left Charlton in third place.
DeLawder and Daniel faced off with a race-to-9 final match. It was a fairly even match, but eventually DeLawder got his second wind. He jumped ahead in the match and kept the lead until he left Daniel behind, taking first for the second time at Q-Ball Billiards.
1st Mike DeLawder $410
2nd Tim Daniel $210
3rd Eric Charlton $100
