10-30k Tour

Another Day In Pool Paradise

Naomi Williams
The second to last stop of the highly competative handicapped Canadian 20K Tour was held at Pool Paradise in Ontario on June 10th/11th. Fifty players vied for the first place $1650 payout. However, for a second time in the past 4 stops it was a woman in a male dominated field who took home the top honors.
Naomi Williams (a 6+ handicap) ousted all those in her path. She went undefeated. In the hot seat match, she crunched 8+ player Rob Brandenburg 6-3. Brandenburg however was undetered as he made his way through the B bracket towards the finals and a rematch with La Williams. Initially it seemed there would be a double set as Brandenburg at one point led 8-2, however Williams buckled down and refused to roll over and play dead to Brandenburg’s assault. After a maticulous and exhaustind fight, Williams brought the match hill-hill and then shut it out. Brandenburg, while playing strong, it was the sheer determination of Williams to add a second win to her belt.
