Dominiak Cues Northeast 10-Ball Tour / Worcester, MA
by Kevin Vidal
Chuck Hill earned another first-place finish on the Dominiak Cues Northeast 10-Ball Tour, making it two in a row for the tour local. The January 3 event was hosted by London Billiards in Worcester, MA, where despite the 50-mile-per-hour winds and snow conditions, many tour regulars showed up to play.
The top half of the winners’ bracket saw Gene Hunt making his way to the hot seat match with steady shot-making. Brandon Charin met him there, working through the bottom half of the bracket. Hunt was on a mission, overcoming Charin to earn a spot in the finals.
The one-loss side saw last stop winner Hill take wins over Tony Hubbard, Roger Vivier, and Charin for a shot to get back at Hunt after being sent by him to the B-side of the chart with a 5-0 drubbing. In the finals, Hill took advantage of opportunities early in the match and gained a lead of 5-0 in the extended race to 6. Hunt wasn’t ready to give up at that point and took the next rack, but Hill remained red hot and won the following game to take home his second tour stop win in a row.Results:
1st Chuck Hill $150
2nd Gene Hunt $100
3rd Brandon Charin $50
4th Roger Vivier $30
