NGB Amateur Billiards Tour 10 Ball Event
March 13, 2010 – AllStar Billiards – Winder, GA
— Final Results —

Leon Whatley

The NGB Amateur Tour stopped at AllStar Billiards in Winder, GA last Saturday for a truly exciting day of 10 ball competition. The tournament drew a strong field of 45 players from around the Southeast.  Throughout the day we saw some great performances, a couple major upsets, a lot of racks run, some sweat and tears (but luckily no blood other than the metaphorical type).  Joe Pierce II (3rd place) and Robert South (2nd place) made a couple serious charges for the gold, but at the end of the day it was all Leon Whatley.  Whatley just played smart pool.. he didn’t make mistakes, picked his runs and jumped on his opponents errors.  Whitley’s mental toughness coupled with  highly skilled mechanics gave him the A side of the tournament, the final match and, of course, the title.
