Congratulations goes out to John Everekian of Ontario for winning the 2017 Richler Cup.
After getting to the Semi – Finals in 2015, John pushed through this time and beat American Renat Denkha in a great match with lots of twists and turns.
In the end, it was the double knockout format that came into John’s favor as Renat won the first match in a race to 4 , but had to come to do it a second time in a race to 2, but was not able to.
John Everekian also got the high run of the tournament with a brilliant 122.
Thank you to everyone that helped make this event a great experience.
