Brothers Double-Dips Krah
Mezz Pro-Am Tour / Egg Harbor, NJ

by Jose Burgos

Josh Brothers took down the Mezz Pro-Am Tour’s May 2 stop, double-dipping Matt Krah in the finals. The $1,000-added event was hosted by Atlantic City Billiard Club in Egg Harbor, NJ, and drew a field of 31.

Lou Patrikios led the top half of the bracket with wins over Jose Burgos 7-3, Randy Mackin 7-3, “Forty” 7-5, and John Alicea 7-5.  Leading the bottom half of the bracket was Krah, who scored victories over Bill Gallagher 7-3, Bob Burt 7-4, Derek Schwager 7-4, and Joe Wright 7-6. Krah and Patrikios collided in the hot seat match, which went hill-hill, but in the end it was Krah who came away with the 7-6 win.

After a hill-hill loss to Eddie Abraham, Brothers worked his way through the west side of the chart, eliminating Denise Reeve 7-0, Ed Medina 7-0, Wali Muhammad 7-2, “Forty” 7-6, Wright 7-1, and Joey Testa 7-2. He then met Patrikios in the semifinals, and after a lopsided match, Brothes ousted him 7-2.
