Gasper Takes Win at Sandcastle

Mike Gasper wins A/D Tri-State at the Sandcastle Billiards event.

(pictured: 2nd place - Robert Piersa; center 1st place - Mike Gasper; and third place - Peter Brennan)

Mike finished undefeated. In route to his victory, he faced Ra Hann 7 – 3; Juan Guzman 7 – 5; Eric Tang  7 – 5;Ray Mendez, Jr. 7 – 5; Scott Simonetti 7 – 3; and Peter Brennan 8 -4, to reach the Hot Seat and finally cinch the event with a 7 – 4 win over Robert Piersa in the Finals.

While Mike waited in the Hot Seat, Pobert Piersa, who suffered a first round loss to Ricardo Mejia 7 – 4, performed an impressive feat, winning 10 straight matches in a row…. definitely one of the best if not the best performances in The Tri-State Tour’s history.
