GSBT Raids World Cup Billiards
by Joshua Johnson, Inside POOL Staff
The Great Southern Billiard Tour is hosting the latest of its amateur events this weekend at World Cup Billiards in Greenville, SC, where a field of 38 players has arrived to compete for the $1,000 first-place prize. What this field of players lacks in numbers it makes up for in quality, however, as some of the top amateur players from the southern region have shown up.
Some of the favorites are former winner Landon Shuffett, Josh Roberts, Sidney Champion, Brian Turner, Ray Benish, and Danny Turner, as well as tour regulars Paul Mullins, Mike Basha, Joshua Johnson, Mike Templeton, and the Tovar brothers—Luis, Antonio, and Jose.
