Flawless Finish for Fontenot
Lone Star Billiards Tour / Houston, TX

by InsidePOOL Staff

The Lone Star Billiards Tour scored a record turnout the weekend of July 10-11, with 83 open players, 13 one-pocket players, and 16 ladies gathered to play for over $10,000 in cash. The tour was hosted by Bogies Billiards in Houston, TX, and saw three winners crowned—Derek Fontenot, David Gutierrez, and Ming Ng—in their respective divisions.

Open 9-ball matches saw the final 24 return Sunday, where Tommy Tokoph and Fontenot fought their way to the hot seat, while the one-loss side wound down to newcomer Francisco Taylor, Gerald “Top Water” Jackson, James Davis Jr., and Jason Bacon. Fontenot secured his position over Tokoph 9-7, while on the west side Jackson made quick work of Bacon 7-6 and won a rematch with Tokoph. Tokoph topped Jackson again for a rematch with Fontenot, where he played his heart out, but Fontenot swiftly closed the set out 9-4 for his first well-deserved tour title.

In the open one-pocket division, it was Gutierrez over Davis Jr. for the hot seat, while on the west side Charlie Bryant bested Dave Favor, James Christopher, David Parker, and then Davis for a shot at Gutierrez. Bryant came on strong the first set 3-0, but Gutierrez answered back the second set 2-0 and claimed first.

The ladies’ open 9-ball event fired up Sunday, with Ng over Deanna Kniola 7-5 for the hot seat. On the west side, Kyu Yi bested Terry Petrosino and then Kniola for a rematch with Ng, who sent her west earlier that day. Both ladies were focused on the win, but Ng closed out the set 7-3 and captured her second consecutive tour title.
