by InsidePOOL Staff
New names made their way onto the final eight single-elimination bracket at the 2012 Flamingo Billiards Tour end of year tournament, where Kira Brown won the night and her first FBT event. The $400-added event was hosted by Ultimate Billiards in Fort Pierce, FL.
Jenny Samuel, a relative newcomer to the FBT, finished second. Sue Roberts and Jeannie Seaver finished tied for third. This was Roberts’ best finish, and Seaver finished high enough to tie with Crystal McCormick for the 2012 FBT Tour Champion title. Seaver also earned the title in 2011. Also making it to the final eight board were Robin Boggs, Shanelle Loraine, Kelly Coyle, and Jennifer Page.
Brown knocked out Seaver and Page in double-hill matches. Samuel defeated Loraine and Roberts to make it to the final match against Brown. The edge and the match went to Brown, who recently finished in eighth place at the U.S. Amateur National Championship.
