On Sunday, March 13, Shooters Snooker Club in Toronto hosted their third consecutive Sunday SL 3-5 Tournament. After two Sundays of ‘3-5’ 9-Ball tournaments, Shooters hosted a 3-5 8-Ball tournament this time around. The field included some of the strongest mid-level amateurs, making this tournament exciting and hard to predict the outcome.
After a few rounds of play, the field of 38 was narrowed down to 6 players:
On the A-Side, Aamer Khraj defeated Kevin Carrier in a tight 5-4 match. Froland Magsanoc also defeated Robbie Harris 5-0. Kevin C and Robbie H would be welcomed on the B-Side by Oscar Zapata and Orlando Ashby, respectively. Oscar and Orlando’s good run on the B-Side would not come to an end, as both of them won their matches in order to face each other in the B-Side Semi-Finals. Orlando eventually went on to beat Oscar 4-2 in order to face the loser of the hot-seat match.
In the hot-seat match, after initially going down in the match, Froland M came back to defeat Aamer K 5-3. Orlando went on to register his 7th consecutive win, defeating Aamer 4-2 and earning a chance back on the A-Side in the finals. The finals would come down to a matchup between Froland and Orlando. Would Froland remain undefeated, or would Orlando’s win-streak extend to 8? In an even matched hill-hill finals, Froland would eventually come out on top winning 5-3. Both players put up a great match for all those who were watching. Congratulations to Froland and honourable mention to Orlando.
Shooters would like to thank everyone who came out to play and support this unique 8-Ball tournament, and due to its good reception, Shooters will be hosting a repeat of the ‘3-5’ 8-Ball tournament this coming Sunday, March 20.
