Tri-State Tour / East Rutherford, NJ
Dave Shlemperis double-dipped the Tri-State Tour’s October 2 event: Not only did he win the $500 break and run contest, he went undefeated through the 33-player field of the B-D 9-ball event. The $500-added event was hosted by Castle Billiards in East Rutherford, NJ.
Tackling Ra Hanna in the winners’ side final four, Shlemperis came out the 7-5 winner. He advanced to the hot seat match to meet Keith Adamik, who had just sent Bogie Uzdejczyk to the one-loss side after a hill-hill win 7-6. Adamik put up a good fight, but it was Shlemperis who would claim the hot seat 7-4.
Uzdejczyk quickly left the building after being sent west—his next match was against Guy Iannuzzi, who eliminated him 7-3. Hanna followed Uzdejczyk after a crushing 7-1 loss to Yomaylin Feliz. In the quarterfinals, Feliz moved on to face Iannuzzi but fell short by half, as Iannuzzi sent her home 8-4.
On a roll, Iannuzzi matched up with Adamik in the semifinals to see who would face the undefeated Shlemperis in the next round. It was a close match, but Iannuzzi triumphed 7-5, while Adamik went home with third place. In the finals, though, it was all Shlemperis, who continued his winning streak after winning the break and run contest to remain undefeated, besting Iannuzzi 7-2 for the title.
