The Final Event for the 2nd Season was held at Tony’s Billiards on May 23rd, where 41 players came out to compete for the top title of Royal City Challenge Champion! With 10% of the entry fees from the season and $500 added by Tony’s Billiards to the total prize fund, and another huge Calcutta, the stakes were high for everyone competing.
Derrick started the day off strong, beating Rob Brandenburg in the 1st round, and proceeding to go through the Winner’s side undefeated, competing against Rick Hutchings, Stuart MacTaggart, Pod Shognosh and Ken Stutz, where he sat in the A Side Finals, waiting for his final opponent…
Ken also had a strong day, 1st defeating Dan Devos, and continued through the Winners side playing Neil Mills, Brittany Bryant and Paul Duell, where he finally was sent to the B Side by Derrick Claus..Ken played and defeated Pod Shognosh on the B Side to come back to play the finals against Claus..where he got his revenge and defeated him for the title.
Thank you to all the players who came out to support the 2nd Season of the Royal City Challenge. It was once again a huge success, with some amazing 9 Ball competition. Thank you also to Tony’s Billiards – Angelo Cupelli and staff, for their continued support in the RCC, and it’s players. We are looking forward to seeing everyone back in the fall of 2015 when we begin the 3rd Royal City Challenge tournaments!
See you all in the Fall! ~ Eric & Katherine ~
