Double J Spells Double Doom
Lone Star Billiards Tour / Houston, TX

by InsidePOOL Staff

The action was hot and heavy on the Lone Star Billiards Tour with over $11k up for grabs the weekend of June 19-20. Q Stix Billiards in Houston, TX, hosted 86 total entries—54 in open 10-ball, 21 in open ladies’ 9-ball, and 11 in open one-pocket. While Ming Ng took top honors in the ladies’ event, it was Jeremy “Double J” Jones who took both the 10-ball and the one-pocket titles.

As the open event progressed, the final four saw Jones versus Billy Sharp for the hot seat and Charlie “Hillbilly” Bryant against Sylver Ochoa on the one-loss side. Jones bested Sharp 9-5 to claim the hot seat, while Bryant eliminated Ochoa 7-1 in fourth place. In the semifinals, Sharp tried but fell short, and Bryant earned the opportunity to avenge his 9-5 loss to Jones earlier that day. Jones and Bryant traded game for game in the final set until it was 7-all. In the end, Jones closed it out 9-7 for an undefeated victory.

The ladies’ event commenced Sunday and included tour points leader Kyu Yi and multiple event winner Terry Petrosino. In the hot seat match, Ng ousted Petrosino, and on the one-loss side Deanna Kniola bested Kyu Yi 7-3 but then lost to Petrosino in the semifinals 5-3. These two focused finalists made for a great match, with Ng taking the win 7-3.

In Sunday’s one-pocket continuance, Jones defeated Ernesto Bayaua for the hot seat, and Strickland suffered a loss from Bryant on the one-loss side. Bryant eliminated Bayaua for yet another shot at Jones and a victory. However, because of physical discomfort, Bryant forfeited the win to Jones and took second place.
