Tri-State Tour / New York City, NY
Trevor Heal went undefeated at the October 9 stop on the Tri-State Tour, besting Yomaylin Feliz in the finals. The $750-added event was hosted by Eastside Billiards in New York City, NY, and drew a field of 20.
Heal and Feliz first faced off in the hot seat match—Heal had just whitewashed Teddy Lubis 7-0, while Feliz escaped a hill-hill battle with Paul Everton 7-6. Heal and Feliz went double-hill, and it was Heal who advanced to the finals to await an opponent.
Once on the west side of the chart, Lubis and Everton rebounded, defeating John Stiles 7-4 and Wilfredo Albay 7-5, respectively. At that point they went on to the quarterfinal match to face each other, with Lubis advancing 7-3. But once in the semifinals Lubis found himself cut off from further advancement, as the awaiting Feliz was determined to earn a rematch with Heal and eliminated Lubis 7-4. The final match was a closely contested one, but it was Heal who came out the 9-7 victor.
