Argue Claims Shooters’ Amateur Champion Title

Shooters Snooker Club hosted its 7th Event in its Amateur Tour Series this past Saturday, February 27, 2016. This 9-ball event welcomed players SL 4-9 to compete for a $1,320 prize pool and $850 Calcutta. The field was capped at 32 players to allow the tournament to be a one-day event to accommodate for Shooters’ ‘3-5’ Extended Race 9-Ball Event the following day. With the field of 32 players ranging in skill level, this tournament was set to be an unpredictable full-day grind.
After several hours of play, the field could be narrowed down to 6 players. Cesar Custodio was set to face Ray Jansen in the hot-seat match, while 4 players remained to face off in the B-Side quarterfinals. The B-Side quarterfinals were:
Ian Argue vs Karl Kasprzak
Arjun Devarajan vs Rob Johnson
Cesar C’s hot-streak would soon come to an end after Ray J defeated him 7-2. Meanwhile on the B-Side, Ian A defeated Karl K 5-0 and Rob J defeated Arjun D in a close double-hill 7-4 match. After beating Rob J in the B-Side semifinals, Ian A would eventually defeat Cesar C in the B-Side finals and advance to face Ray J for the Amateur Championship Title.
Unfortunately for Ray, his first loss of the tournament would come in the finals against Ian. Ian fought hard to win the final match 5-5. Congratulations to Ian Argue on his spectacular first place finish in Shooters’ Amateur 9-Ball Tour Event #7. Ray Jansen battled hard and finished second.
