ACS Presents Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour Results from Billiards on Main
The eighteenth stop on the 2009-2010 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) stopped off in Galesburg, ILon Saturday, December 5. The $500 added event featured a full 32-player field in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot Valley bar boxes. Bob Nodine (Streator, IL), rated a “4” on a regional handicapping system used, marched undefeated to the hot seat via an A-side semifinal win over Brad Simpson  (Galesburg, IL) 4-1 and an A-side finals shellacking of Ryan Murphy  (Burlington, IA) 4-0.
On the B-side “final 8” Randy Tenley  (Galesburg, IL) and Jesse Bowman  (E. Moline, IL) ended the day at 7th place for Jon Kucharo  (Bettendorf, IA) 5-6 and Scott Laird  (Galesburg, IA) 7-3 respectively. Both Tenley and Bowman repeated their wins in the next round (5th place), with respective victories over Rich Bideaux  (Moline, IL) 5-3 and Brad Simpson  7-1. Bowman  then continued his hot hand by eliminating Tenley  at 4th place 7-3 and Ryan Murphy  at 3rd place 7-0. The tourney finals was all Bowman, as he steam-rolled undefeated Bob Nodine  in two sets 7-1, 7-0 for the title!
By virtue of Jesse Bowman being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2010 ACS Nationals in Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.
