Albay Undefeated in the Big Apple
Tri-State Tour / New York, NY
Wilfredo Albay went undefeated through the field of 30 B-D players who gathered for the Tri-State Tour’s November 7 stop. Hosted by Eastside Billiards in New York, NY, this event boasted a $750-added prize purse.
After a sound defeat of Yomaylin Feliz 6-1, Albay went on to escape a hill-hill bout for the hot seat against Kyle Ferris, who had just bested Gary Murgia 7-5. Now on the one-loss side, Feliz faced Geoffrey Bauer and ended up going home with fifth place after Bauer advanced 7-4. Murgia tied with him for fifth after Robert Kight defeated him 7-5.
On a roll, Bauer surged through Kight in the quarterfinals 7-5 and headed to the semifinals against Ferris. Though Ferris had a chance to earn a rematch with Albay in the finals, he barely missed it, as Bauer was on the winning end of their hill-hill battle. The finals were also close, as they were tied at 5-apiece, but it was Albay who pulled away to end up the 7-5 victor.Results:
