Hunter Lombardo strolled his way to the top of the leader board at Top Hat Billiards and Lounge in Jupiter, FL, to take first place over Chris Filippelli November 4. Participating in the Flamingo Billiards Tour’s “Cues for the Cure II” fundraiser, Lombardo had few obstacles in his path, although Eric Swingle forced him to take a detour to the left.

The event was a modified, double-elimination format, playing down to four on each side. The final four on the one-loss side redrew into a single-elimination bracket on the winners’ side. In the final eight player board, Lombardo eliminated Sam Kantor and Justin Gilsanen.

Lombardo then matched up against Filippelli in the final match. Filippelli played strong, but not quite strong enough to take the win from Lombardo, fresh off a respectable finish in the top 32 at the U.S. Open 9-Ball Championships. Other players making it to the final board of eight included Greg Deaton, Chris Gentile, Eric Swingle, and Lyn Remsen.

Results:
1st Hunter Lombardo $250
2nd Chris Filippelli $150
3rd Greg Deaton $100
Justin Gilsanen
5th Sam Kantar $50
Chris Gentile
Eric Swingle
Lyn Remsen
