15 October 2012 341 views No Comment
The $500-added 8-ball handicapped tourney on 7-foot Valley bar boxes drew 26 players to Cuemasters Billiards in Dubuque, IA. Nick Allendorf (Cedar Rapids, IA) took the A-side route to the finals with consecutively slim wins over Jason Totten 4-4, Warren Meyer 4-3, Jason Gross 4-4, Will Kohl 4-5 and Shane Kelley 4-5.
In the title match, undefeated Allendorf butted heads with Tim Fox (Chicago, IL) who had earlier dispatched Tom Biddulph 6-0 before falling to Shane Kelley 5-6. Fox then recovered with elimination wins over Will Thomson 6-3, Jason Gross 6-3, Will Kohl 6-5 and Shane Kelly 6-1. In the first and only title set, Allendorf finally opened up some space with his opponent and blanked Tim Fox for the crown!
By virtue of Shane Kelley being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2013 Pure X ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS. The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Pure X Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric and Nick Varner Signature Cases for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Pure X All American Tour. Sponsorship opportunities and tour stop openings are still available for the 2012/2013 All American Tour by contacting the ACS.
