Down to Eight in Rock Hill
By Joshua Johnson, Inside POOL
After two rounds of play on Sunday, only eight players remain in the Great Southern Billiard Tour’s amateur event at Breakers Sports Bar in Rock Hill, SC. All three AA players who started the tournament are still alive, though only Jeff Abernathy remains on the winner’s side of the brackets. Abernathy has the task of defeating Dusty Norris to reach the hot seat match.
Steve Cox will play Josh Newman in the other winner’s bracket semifinal . Brian White and Josh Roberts both are battling through the left side of the field. White, who lost his first math of the tournament to Mike Basha, has won five straight matches to reach this position. He has to play Dale Phillips in an 11-7 race. Roberts drew Norris Brady, a local A player in the other 1-loss bracket match. A second chance tournament also started with ten players competing for the top prize.
The Great Southern Billiard Tour would like to thank the owner of the Breakers Sports Bar, Jeff Peele, for hosting the event as well as its sponsors: Nick Varner Cues and Cases, Tiger Products, Delta-13 Rack, Masters Chalk, Inside POOL, AZ Billiards, Professor Q-BALL, Stroke Magazine and Billiards Digest.
