It was a big surprise to see Alex Pagulayan in attendance last Saturday morning for the 404 9-Ball Tour at Shooters Billiards in Toronto. Besides winning the World Championship in 2004, Alex Pagulayan has won multiple titles in every corner of the globe.
This handicapped tournament format has proven that even the world’s best are not guaranteed a win over the less experienced players. Although Alex did make it to play on Sunday, his road to the finals was cut short by courtesy of Jeet Kandhai.
It was Mario Morra who once again worked his way to the winners circle. Mario’s determined style of play has paid off for yet another title with a win over Rod Arsenault in the finals.
