Seaver Slays Lucasi Billiards Field
Lucasi Hybrid Cues All-American Tour
by Mimi McAndrews
What started out to be a miserable day had a happy ending as Jeannie Seaver won the Flamingo Billiards Tour 3rd Annual “Cues for the Cure” event, which was combined with the Lucasi Hybrid Cues All-American Tour’s October 8 tournament, hosted by Amy’s Billiards in Stuart, FL.
Seaver almost didn’t make it to the event. Both she and sister, Vanessa Seaver, ended up in a car accident when the weather and road conditions became unmanageable. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, at least not enough to stop either from making it to the event, making it to the money, and winning the tournament.
Seaver had a tough first match, but despite the mishap on the way to the event, she managed to pull off a tough hill-hill win against room owner Amy Poulter. After that it was smooth sailing with a 7-2 win over Kelly Cavanaugh and a 7-2 score over Marina Souza to make it to the single-elimination redraw. There Seaver knocked out top player Helene Caukin 7-4 and sister Vanessa 7-3 to make it to the final match.
Meeting her there was Jennifer Page, who had just eliminated Cassidy Mulligan in third place. The match went back and forth all the way to double-hill. Just when it looked like Seaver would run out and take the win, with two balls to go she left herself with a tough shot to get shape on the 9. She gave it her all but missed, leaving a tricky but makeable cut shot in the side pocket for Page. But just when it looked like it was over for Seaver, a little too much inside english saw Page fail to make the cut in the side and miss the ball entirely, giving ball in hand to Seaver, who easily ran out the last two balls and won the event.
