In route to his victory, Stewart had wins over: Wali Muhammed  7 – 5; Brian Hunter 7 – 3; and Gary Murgia 7 – 2. Then, in the battle for the hot seat, suffered a loss to Randy Schwager 7 – 6.

On the loss side, Stewart defeated Serrafin Serrano 7 – 5; Ron Mason 8 – 5; and George Osipovitch 8 – 5 to get to the finals.

In the return match against Randy, each player took turns taking the lead and, at a crucial (6 – 6) moment Stewart took andvantage of the opportunities winning 3 in a row for  the tournament victory.

On the human interest side of this event, one player displayed the tenacity of womamhood. Adriane Rivera, a D+ player, competed 8 months pregnant! Despite carrying an extra 30 pounds and all the other stresses, Adriane gave a lot of players a run for there money with a 4 – 2 win/loss record and a double hill match that could have easily gone her way.

The Tri State Tour would like to thank Sterling – Gaming; Fury Cues; Stealth Cues and Ozone Billiards, and Phil Capelle for their support.
