Strokers Billiards was the latest venue to host the KF Cue tour 2/13/10. Saturday would see 59 players show up for the $1000 Added Amateur Event, with a record 9 ladies taking advantage of there reduced entry fee’s.

Jason Sheerman & Eddie Wheat

Jason Sheerman would prove to be a handful on the day as he cruised his way to the hotseat with wins over Boomer 7-3, Jim Sandaler 7-4, Bill Stoll 7-3, Dan Whitten 7-1 to put himself in the winners side final, He would meet Custom cue maker Eddie Wheat who had made his way to the finals with wins over Dave Ross 7-3, Hank Samuel 7-4, Mike Delawder 7-2, Chip Dickerson 7-5 and then a tight 7-6 win over Mark Wathen 7-6 to reach the hotseat match to play Sheerman. The hotseat match was a lopsided with Wheat coming out a 7-2 winner over Sheerman.

While all this was going on Mike Xiarhos Snr after taking a 1st round loss to Mark Wathen 7-4 would go on a rampage with wins over Louie Smith, Kevin Tennery, James Adams, Mike Delawder, Dan Dennis, Bill Stoll, Louis Altes a revenge win over Mark Wathen which was followed by one more win over Dan Whitten before losing a very close 5-4 match to Jason Sheerman to get to the final.

Sheerman was looking for revenge from his earlier 7-2 loss to Wheat, Revenge it was as he would reverse the role and take down wheat 8-2 and take his first KF Cue tour win.  With 9 ladies in attendance we paid the top 3 after a play off which Stephanie Mitchell won.

The final would be a single race to 9, Hall would come out firing to take a 7-3 lead and put one hand on the trophy. Davis would now mount a come back taking the next four games to tie the match at 7-7 and just when it looked like he would take the lead to go 8-7 up trying to play a tricky positional shot the cue ball would scratch and throw the momentum back in Halls favor as he would take this and the next rack to win his first KF cue tour title by the score of 9-7.

The final was a classic with both players trading racks all the way to the 6-6 Kennedy would Kennedy would get to the hill first to lead 8-6 before Scarborough pulled it back to level at 8-8. The final rack would see Kennedy look like taking the title with just the 8 an 9 left Kennedy would make the 8 and leave himself short on the 9 ball he attempted the bank only to miss by a hair and leave the 9 hanging for a relieved Scarborough who would take his first KF title.
