Adams goes undefeated to claim Predator Amateur title

Jamiyl Adams broke through the Amateur ranks to claim his first title at the September 13-14 stop on the Predator Tour. Previously, he'd chalked up three, fifth place finishes on the Tri-State Tour and one finish in ninth place on the Predator Tour. The $500-added event, run concurrently with an Open/Pro tournament (separate story) drew 55 entrants to Steinway Billiards in Astoria (Queens), NY.
Adams made his way to the winners' side final four and a matchup against Amir Uddin. Brooke Meyer faced Nick Chuang in the other winners' side semifinal. Meyer survived a double hill battle against Chuang and in the hot seat match, faced Adams, who'd defeated Uddin 7-4. Adams downed Meyer 7-3, and waited on his return.
Over on the loss side, Stewart Warnock and Tony Ignomirello met up with Chuang and Uddin, respectively. Warnock had gotten by Greg Antonakis, double hill, and Kapriel Delimelkonoglu 7-5. Ignomirello had defeated Todd Trent 7-4 and Dan Faraguna 7-5. Uddin got right back into the swing of things with a 7-2 win over Ignomirello, but Warnock handed Chuang his second straight loss 7-3.
Uddin defeated Warnock in the quarterfinals 8-6, and was then eliminated by Meyer in the semifinals 7-6. Adams completed his undefeated run with a 7-3 win over Meyer in the finals.
