Queens, New York- The anticipation is over.

Dr.Louis Pannullo put up in extra $500 bonus for the highest run of the 5pm round. Brazil’s Cleiton Rocha had it for a moment with a 59 ball run. Then he was overshadowed by Efren Reyes 60+ ball run over Dr.Pannullo. But Efren was hard luck when Thorsten Hohmann ran 74 and out on Zaid Thweib of Jordan on the TV Stream table. But it was Max Eberle who had the last laugh with a 79 ball run agains Dr.James Heller.
The 2012 Predator World Tournament takes place July 29th – August 3rd. The event is produced by Dragon Promotions & Dr.Michael Fedak and proudly co-sponsored by Championship Cloth, Olhausen Tables, Amsterdam Billiards, Aramith Balls, Pool & Billiard Magazine, Championship Tour Edition Chalk, and straight pool aficionados Dr.Louis Pannullo of NYC, Stu Mattana of NYC, Ralph Rubin of MD, and Tom Gleich of NC. Co-contributors Dr.James Heller, Drew Thomas, and Charles Eames.
Some dramatic moments came as well with Chicago’s World 14.1 Qualifier winner Tom Karabotsos surprising last year’s World Tournament finalist Mike Davis running 50& out when Davis only needed a rack. NJ qualifier Dennis Spears destroyed NYC 14.1 pro Danny Barouty 100-26. Charlie Williams dodged a bullet when he won 100-89 against Chicago’s Bob Cozzolino when Bob missed a ball in the final rack.
Two other big runs came from Corey Deuel and Darren Appleton. Deuel ran 80+ to win 100 – 1 against Joey Kong of Korea. World 9-Ball Champion Appleton delivered a near flawless 99&out against Jerry Tarantola.
“The atmosphere is exciting and perfect for the World Tournament. This is the first time I’ve been to Carom Cafe, and it is a really great fit for this event”, said Ed Liddawi, owner of Sandcastle Billiards which hosted the NJ Qualifier for the World 14.1 where Spears and Kong qualified.
“The crowd was awesome for Day 1. It wasn’t just a handful of polite claps. People were roaring and clapping for great shots and well placed break balls. It is an extremely knowledgeable and large crowd”, said Charlie Williams, pro player in the event.
