Steve “The Blade” Moore came back from a late defeat by Keith Bennett in the hot seat match to take the Seminole Pro Tour’s April 10-11 stop, collecting $3,000 for first place. The event was hosted by Bankshot Billiards in Jacksonville, FL, and attracted 53 pros to vie for a piece of the prize fund.

To survive undefeated to Sunday’s rounds, Moore enjoyed a first-round bye and then sent both Jose Del Rio and David Grossman to the west side of the chart. Bennett was having a great event as well, knocking off Johnny “The Scorpion” Archer in the first round and then going on to best Bobby Livrago and Tommy Kennedy.

In Sunday’s first match, Moore sent Jeff Crawford to the left side 8-4 and went on to face Gabe “The Babe” Owen, fresh off an 8-2 victory over Jerry Calderone. It was a close call, but Moore edged out Owen 8-6 to advance to the hot seat match.

Bennett had a narrow 8-6 victory over Javier Chirino to start out his Sunday and then had an 8-4 win over Tony “The Sniper” Crosby, who had just bested John Rouse 8-6. Bennett dominated the hot seat match as Moore foundered, and Bennett ended up the 8-3 victor.

As action closed out Saturday night at the Seminole Pro Tour in Holiday, FL, the $6,000-added event that drew 43 entrants to Hammerheads in Holiday, FL was down to the final 12 players.

In the quarterfinal match, Owen and Crosby went head to head, and it was Crosby who triumphed with an 8-3 score. Moore shook off his earlier loss to Bennett and sent Crosby home in third place 8-4 to advance to the finals where Bennett was waiting. In this rematch, the players traded rack for rack relentlessly, until finally Moore was the only player left standing as he won 9-8.
