404 9-Ball Tour

404 Tour Season Finale Results

The 6th season of the 404 Tour has wrapped up at Bigwigs Billiards in Newmarket.  Sixty-four qualified players filled the double elimination 9-ball bracket.  The two top ranked players on the Tour, John Morra and Erik Hjorleifson, were not in attendance as they are currently representing the “Toronto Blue Sharks” in Las Vegas in the World Professional Billiard League.  The absence of these two great players opened the door for the upcoming talent on the scene.
In the top half of the bracket, Ron Ranalli worked his way to the a-side finals with wins over Jaypee Castillo (5-3), Randy Fawcett (5-5), Naomi Williams (5-4), Jyri Kari (5-3) and Brad Guthrie (5-5).  In the lower bracket Justin Kluznik got through his tough first round match against Mario Morra (7-5).  Justin continued his strong play beating Isaac Ramos (8-6), Rafiq Kassam (8-3), Wayne Tate (8-5) and Tyler Nearing (8-2).
As the tournament progressed, Justin’s game just got stronger.  Justin faced Ron Ranalli in the a-side finals and wasted no time in sending Ron to the b-side to face Brad Guthrie.  At this point, Ranalli was out of steam.  Brad Guthrie, also having a terrific weekend, put an end to Ron’s run for the title with a 7-2 score.  An impressive finish for Ron finishing in 3rd place.
