(L-R) Jeff Carter (3rd), Dave Coles Jr. (1st) and John Fields (2nd)

The seventeenth stop of the 2009-2010 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS)  moved to the Varsity Clubin Oshkosh WI.  The $1,000 added event featured a 40-player field in a double-elimination 9-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.  John Fields (Neenah, WI) completed an undefeated trek to the hot seat by dispatching Dave Coles Jr. (Beloit, WI) in the A-side finals by a 7-5 margin.

On the B-side “final 8” Duncan Kaufman (Sauk City, WI) and Bobby Hunter (Chicago, IL) eliminated Jordan Jenquin (Green Bay, WI) and Chad Elston (Beloit, WI) at 7th place by 7-5 and 7-2 margins respectively.  Kaufman joined Jeff Carter (Delavan, WI) in the next round to finish off Bobby Hunter (Chicago, IL) and Tom McCluskey (Chicago, IL) at 5th place by 7-3 and 7-4 scores respectively.  Carter then ended Kaufman’s run at 4th place 7-3, but Carter then was felled in the B-side finals at the hands of Dave Coles Jr. (Beloit, WI) 7-5.  The tourney finals showcased Dave Coles Jr. having to defeat John Fields two sets for the title, and he did just that (7-5, 7-1) to claim the top prize!

By virtue of Scott Kugel 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.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric, Nick Varner Signature Cases, Ozone Billiards, Pool Cue Guru and Billiard Gods Productions for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour. All entries in the Tour are also entered into a drawing in January for a $1,000 Lucasi Hybrid Cue, courtesy of Ozone Billiards.  Sponsorship opportunities and tour stop openings are still available for the 2009/2010 All American Tour by contacting the ACS.
