U.S. Bar Table Championship in Full Swing
by Rick Davis
The U.S. Bar Table Championship got underway today at the Sands Regency Hotel and Casino in Reno, NV. The week-long event features competition in 10-ball, 9-ball, and 8-ball and offers an addition all-around prize to the top finishers that played in all three events.
Starting at 2 p.m. local time, the 10-ball event kicked off with an 85-player field in the race to 7, true double-elimination format, and all of the events are alternate break. In the 10-ball action favorites include Shane Van Boening, Gabe Owen, Jose Parica, Steve Moore, and others who will all battle it out for the $4,250 top prize, and overall 24 places are being paid out.
Highlights from the afternoon rounds saw Tyler Edey face Moore, and with Moore down 6-5, he made a tough cut on the 9 ball only to see the cue carom off the 10 to scratch and hand the final rack to Edey. The evening rounds will start into the one-loss side, and then the second day of play will offer matches on both sides of the chart until the top four return Wednesday.
Wednesday morning begins the 9-ball rounds, and the 10-ball finals will not play until Wednesday evening. The same switch up will take place when 9-ball winds down and 8-ball begins.
