Raphael DaBreo getting back in stroke. After a layoff from the game, Raphael went undefeated in Master Billiards’ 10 Ball Ti-State Tour event. Amazingly, he is finding his form only playing a few times a month. In route to his victory, DaBreo blazed a trail defeating: Mike Harrington 7 – 5; Dave Shlemperis 7 – 4; Troy Deocharran 7 – 5; “Devil Dave” Ascolese; and successfully defended himself against Deocharran’s  attempt to avenge his earlier loss to Raphael  with a 7 – 6 win for the crown. Troy Deocharran’s win/loss record 5 & 2. Devil Dave’s win/loss record 6 & 2. Also making a strong showing was up and coming Justin Muller with an impressive 6 & 2 record.
