It was a small but strong field that turned out at Parker’s Billiards in Houston, TX, the weekend of November 21-22 for the Lone Star Tour stop. Battling it out for a $2,080 purse were 36 players, including tour regulars Blaine Barcus, Bobby Pacheco, Andy Jethwa, Javier Franco, and Louisiana’s own Derek Fontenot found themselves in the final 16 on Saturday night, with Sylver Ochoa taking home the ultimate prize Sunday.

Barcus, Brian Rosenbaum, and Marc “Mighty Mouse” Garza traveling fast through the one-loss side, earning top finishes for their excellent match play. However, after the smoke cleared, it was only Fontenot and Jethwa on the winners’ side and Ochoa and Franco dueling on the one-loss side.

One the east side Fontenot knocked down his last road block, Jethwa, 9-7, while on the west side Ochoa took out Franco 7-6. Ochoa continued his streak by eliminating Jethwa 7-4, leaving him in third. The final match brought back Fontenot to defend his territory against Ochoa, who was fighting for his second consecutive tour victory. Ochoa took charge, winning the first set 9-8 to send the match into overtime. In the second race to 7 Ochoa pulled ahead and closed it out 7-5.
