Albrecht Aces Lucasi Billiard Tour
Lucasi Hybrid All-American Tour / Coon Rapids, MN
Gene Albrecht went undefeated at the November 21 stop on the Lucasi Hybrid All-American Tour, defeating Randy Matthiesen in the finals. The $500-added event was hosted by CR’s Sports Bar in Coon Rapids, MN, and featured 31 players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.
The event was handicapped with Master players giving AA players a one-game spot, AA players spotting one game to A players, etc. ACS National Masters champion Albrecht and A-player Matthiesen made it to the A-side finals, but Albrecht was not fazed by giving a two-game spot to vanquish Matthiesen 5-1 to gain the hot seat.
On the B-side AA-player Allen Reich took a one-game spot from Master player Max Krause to eliminate Krause at seventh place 4-1. Joining Krause was Master-player Kim Stigall, who fell to fellow Master-player Dan Voeller 5-1. The next round was not as kind to Voeller and Reich, as both were whitewashed at fifth place by respective opponents AA-player Ryan Wenger and AA-player Brad Vollmers. In the B-side semifinals Vollmers continued his hot hand to dispatch fellow AA-player Ryan Wenger to fourth place by another 5-0 margin. In the B-side finals A-player Matthiesen took a one-game spot from Vollmers and ended Vollmers’ day at third place by a 4-2 score.
