DaBreo Dispatches Harrington for Title
Tri-State Tour / Brooklyn, NY
Rafael DaBreo went unchallenged through the 49-player field that participated in the June 11-12 Tri-State Tour stop, besting Mike Harrington in the finals. The $2,000-added 9-ball event was hosted by Gotham City Billiards in Brooklyn, NY.
DaBreo and Harrington first met in the winners’ side finals after DaBreo delivered Dan Cintron to the one-loss side 8-6 and Harrington bested Antonio Navarro 6-4. Their match went double-hill before DaBreo was able to advance 7-6 to the finals.
Billy Cheng eliminated Cintron in fifth place after a 7-5 victory, and Cintron tied with Navarro, who was ousted by Ron Mason 6-4. In the quarterfinal match Cheng challenged Mason and came out the 7-5 victor.
A hill-hill victory for Harrington in the semifinal match over Cheng put him in the finals against DaBreo for a rematch of the hot seat match. However, DaBreo was primed and ready and only gave up one rack before he won the title 7-1.
