Poison Florida State Amateur 9-Ball Championship / Tallahassee, FL
by InsidePOOL Staff
Chris Adams was crowned the Poison Florida State Amateur 9-Ball Champion the weekend of November 24-25, topping a large field of 107 players who turned up at Zingales Billiards in Tallahassee for a tough weekend of pool.
Adams had his hands full as he navigated through some hard-fought wins over Van Mangum, David Uwate, Cliff Thrasher, Dave Strong, Denny Fox, and Anthony Piazza. A nail-biting 8-7 win over Nick Applebee 8-7 set Adams up for the final.
Fox ground his way back to play Adams in the final. Fox defeated Adams in the first race 8-7 to force the sudden death one-rack shootout to determine the winner. Adams won the lag and broke and ran out the final rack to be crowned the 2012 Florida State Amateur 9-Ball champion.
