Billiard Congress of Wisconsin Open 9-Ball Tour / Madison, WI

by Jonathan Demet

Instead of staying home to watch the Packers versus the Cardinals playoff game, ten players decided to compete at the Billiard Congress of Wisconsin’s Open 9-Ball Tour stop January 10. The $400-added stop was hosted by The Brass Ring in Madison, WI, where Craig Powers took home the first prize of $345.

In the top bracket of the winners’ side Powers made it to the hot seat match with a bye in the first round and then 9-5 wins over Jonathan Demet and Chris Gitzlaff. In the bottom bracket straight pool world champion Bob Hunter received a bye the first round and then went on to defeat Jim Fitzpatrick 9-6 in the second and Bob Treffeisen 9-1 in the third. Powers went on to best Hunter 9-3 to claim the hot seat match.

Jim Fitzpatric fought back from a first-round loss with wins over Terry O’Brian7-6, Chris Mason7-4, and Treffeisen 7-3, putting him in a match with Demet. It was a close match, but luck came into play, leaving Demet a run-out in a double-hill match to advance.
