Great Southern Billiard Tour Climbs aboard the Diamond Express in Chattanooga, SC
By Joshua Johnson, Inside POOL
Sixty-one of the best amateur players the south has to offer made the trek to Diamond Billiard Club this weekend to participate in the Great Southern Billiard Tour’s $1500 added Choo Choo Amateur Classic in Chattanooga, TN. Top amateur players such as Mike Laney, Danny Smith, Landon Shuffett, Russ Edwards, Matt Reed and David Rice will have to navigate through brackets which feature an additional thirteen AA and A rated players.
This will be made tougher with the GSBT’s newly implemented, and popular, handicapping format. Players who are rated an “AA” have to go to 10 games, “A” players have to go to 9, and “B” players have to go to 7 in an alternate break race.
The Great Southern Billiard Tour would like to thank the owner of the Diamond Billiard Club, Davey Crockett, for hosting the event as well as its sponsors: Nick Varner Cues and Cases, Tiger Products, Delta-13 Rack, Gambler Clothing, Masters Chalk, Inside POOL, AZ Billiards, Professor Q-BALL, and Billiards Digest.
