$500 Added Based on 48 players
28 Players came out for a fun day of pool with friends and a chance to win some cash at Six & Stones, Abington, MA.
1st Place: Mike Pettit - Mike started off with a solid win his first match against Francisco Cabral. He went on to claim the Hot Seat after five (5) wins. Mike is an avid player on Diamond tables, so Stix & Stones was right up his alley. In the Finals he met his friend and teammate for next tournament, Bill Cote. Bill won the first set 5-2, but Mike answered back with a 4-2 victory in the second set and claimed the title, "Tournament Champion".
2nd Place: Bill Cote - Bill is a six plus year "Ride the 9 Tour" player. He started his journey with a decisive win over his opponent 5-0. He went on to win his second round 5-4. Losing his third match 5-4 lit a fire under Bill. He went on to win five (5) straight on Side B (one-loss) to glide to the finals, getting him Runner up.
3rd Place: Tim Schroeder - Tim was very impressive as a C class player. He started his 3rd place finish in the lower half of the seeded brackets. His first win was 5-2. He continued to show us what he can do against the B- through C- bracket. He won four (4) consecutive matches, before meeting up with Mike Pettit to go head-to-head in the Hot Seat Match. Great showing!
4th Place: Ryan Lineham - Ryan won his first match against another A player 5-2. He then played the Tournament Champion, Mike, and was sent to Side B. Ryan is skilled player who put together five (5) wins before Bill Cote was victorious. Thank you Ryan for supporting our Tour for over 7 years!
