The Southwest Booster - - CLASSIFIEDS - SUB­MIT­TED

Lucky Char­lie’s Pub and Pool hosted the fourth an­nual Open Eight Ball Tour­na­ment on Oct. 19-20. Fri­day night kicked off with reg­is­tra­tion and a Mini Eight ball tour­na­ment. This was won by lo­cal player Den­nis Ger­brandt.

The main tour­na­ment started Satur­day morn­ing at 9 a.m. with a field of 24 play­ers. The list of en­trants came from Medicine Hat, Maple Creek, Brooks, North Bat­tle­ford, Saska­toon, Regina and Swift Cur­rent.

The day was filled with great eight ball ac­tion and lots of close matches.

A great time was had by all, with lots of ku­dos to Lucky Char­lie’s for their pro­fes­sion­ally run tour­na­ment, ex­cel­lent venue and awe­some ser­vice pro­vided by Lucky Char­lie’s Tan­nis, who also pro­vided food and cof­fee for the play­ers through­out Satur­day.

The tour­na­ment was a dou­ble knock­out for­mat, with the A side play­ing a race to seven and the B side a race to five. The top 25 per­cent of field were el­i­gi­ble for prize money.

The win­ner of the tour­na­ment was Janri Cruz from Saska­toon. The run­nerup was De­nis Cha­pa­dos (cur­rent Saskatchewan Snooker Cham­pion) from Regina and third place went to Kirby Ybanez of North Bat­tle­ford and fourth to Robert Delfin of Swift Cur­rent. Fifth place to Jor­dan Schi­bler of Medicine Hat and sixth place to Al­bert Sny­ders of Brooks, AB. To­tal pay­out to the top six play­ers was $2,150.

Scott and Kevin of Lucky Char­lie’s were pleased with the tour­na­ment and turnout. “We were shoot­ing for 32 play­ers, un­for­tu­nately we had sev­eral date con­flicts with other high pro­file tour­na­ments,” said Scott. “Hope­fully next year we can pack the house. Spe­cial thank you to La­batt’s for the $250 cash added spon­sor­ship. Thanks to all the par­tic­i­pants and the sup­port­ers for a great tour­na­ment.”
