Crazy 8’s Family Pool Hall in Port Arthur, Texas played host to the Lone Star Tour’s twelfth stop of the year on August 28th-29th.   The $1,350 added event not only drew 43 open players and 13 women with almost $6,000 in cash up for grabs, but local Channel 4 News coverage as well. Charlie “Hillbilly” Bryant, Sylver “Cho-Uh” Ochoa, David Gutierrez, Steve Lenz, and Louisiana’s own Troy Woodard were all in attendance. LSBT’s Houston crowd represented as well with Rodney Stewart, Will Felder, Viet Do, Charles Crouch, Brent Thomas, Brian Rosenbaum, Chuck Adams, Eric Renteria, Thomas Juarez and Mike Alonzo.

Match play wrapped up on Saturday evening and brought the final twelve back on Sunday, in the money! On the winners’ side final 8, Bryant bested Will Felder 9-3, Gutierrez dusted Dalton Riley 9-4, Ochoa ousted Brian Rosenbaum 9-2, and it was Mike Alonzo over Viet Do 9-5. After being down by a deficit of 5-1, Gutierrez sent Bryant west by a score of 9-7, and Ochoa stopped Alonzo cold. In the hot seat match, Ochoa sent Gutierrez west 9-0 while the one loss side played out. It was David Heinz over Rosenbaum and Do over Stewart, Woodard bested Felder, and Riley eliminated Chuck Pham. Rosenbaum took down Do to meet up with Bryant, and Riley eliminated Woodard to meet up with Alonzo. One round later, it was Bryant v. Riley but the “Hillbilly” made quick work of him 7-0 then eliminated Gutierrez 7-4. In the final Ochoa came on strong 4-1 then 6-4 but Bryant gave his final answer 9-7.  In overtime, Bryant wasted no time and defeated Ochoa 7-3.  Also, congratulations to Dalton Riley (4th), Viet Do (7th-8th), Rodney Stewart (9th-12th), and Chuck Pham (9th-12th) who had their best finishes to date.

In the ladies event, Ming Ng played near flawless with wins over Love Nguyen, Belinda Lee, Marie Chhuon, and Loretta Lindgren.  It was Chhuon who made her way out of the woods and into the finals, but was out gunned by Ng 7-1.
