Again, I had the opportunity to see a recipient of the medal of Canada there who makes a regular practice stop at Shooters. With 20 tables and a good steady clientele along with good hosting, snooker is alive and well in this pool room.
Six players returned Sunday at noon with the top A side match for the “Hot seat” between Eric Hjorleifson 9+ vs. Dan Doener 8 with Dan besting Eric hill-hill (match was 10-8).
B side top bracket featured Terry Mason 5+ vs. Grace Nakamura 6 (match was 6-7). Result: Terry defeated Grace by a 6-1 score.
Then it was Terry Mason 5+ vs. Dave McMahon 7+ and the winner was……… (match was 5-7) Dave 7-2.
Dave then played Eric and once again it was a hill-hill match with Eric winning this time (match is 7-9).
Eric earned the trip back to the A side to see the player that sent him to the B side and needed to win twice to win the stop.
And it was over after Eric missed a cut on a 3 ball and Dan ran out to go undefeated at 8-8 and take the victory.
