Archer Takes Over Number One Spot on BCA Rankings
As the 2009 season in the world of pool and billiards has wound down, it was revealed that Johnny Archer has taken over the top spot on the Billiard Congress of America (BCA) rankings. With his victory at the Turning Stone Classic XIV, he has knocked Ralf Souquet out of first place and now reigns supreme going into the new year.
This was not the only victory that “The Scorpion” had this year that contributed to his new position on the ranking system. In November he won two events. First he took down the Steve Mizerak Championship, and then he also won the U.S. 10-Ball Invitational later that month.

Reaching the acme of the BCA rankings is the icing on the cake for Archer’s 2009 season. In October he was inducted into the Billiard Congress of America’s Hall of Fame during the U.S. Open 9-Ball Championships, and in December he participated in the PartyPoker.net Mosconi Cup, helping Team USA reclaim the prestigious Cup for America.
