Joining the ranks of the new Shooting Star Classic champs is Brad Krystofiak of Cambridge, Minnesota. Krystofiak soared through the field of 128 players in the Men’s Open division without losing a match. In fact, the only to get more than two games on him was runner-up Cullen Newton, in the final match of the tournament. The modest Krystofiak did not want to comment on his stellar performance claiming, “I got lucky a few times.”
Krystofiak picked up his first title and a hefty $1,400. Not too shabby for his first return to pool after a two year break. The top four players all came through the East side of their brackets until the end.
1st Brad Krystofiak Cambridge, MN $1,400
2nd Cullen Newton Fridley, MN $1,000
3rd Charlie Garza Albert Lea, MN $700
4th Ron Latterell Sauk Rapids, MN $500
All four singles division champions receive custom Delta-13 Elite racks engraved with the event name, date, and “CHAMPION” along with their prize money.
With support from their sponsors, tournament directors, Samm Diep and Mike Fieldhammer were able to provide coin-free play on pro-cut 7’ Diamond Smart Tables for the entire weekend for only a $10 greens fee.
