Big Jeff Handles the Field at the BBSS 8-Ball Event

Nick Smith, John Sanifer, Kiko, and Jeff Crawford

Colorado Cue Club (Northglenn, Colorado) regular Jeff Crawford made a nice undefeated run through the bracket of twenty-three players on August 16, 2008, to claim the top prize at the Big Box Summer Series 8-Ball event (Second Annual Big Box Summer Series Event No 3).  “Big Jeff” as we like to call him played well to dispatch Mike Hellmer, Johnny Vasquez, Bill Skinner and John Sanifer to the one-loss side.

Over on the one-loss side, the man on the move was Kiko.  He won five matches in a row before running into Colorado Springs representative Nick Smith.  Nick was in the middle of his own little run also winning five in a row, including a revenge match over John Sanifer, to take a crack at Big Jeff in the finals.  The finals match would end in one set, however, and Nick would have to settle for second place.

The monsoon-like conditions in the Denver area this day probably didn't help the turnout for this event but the Cue Club and the players managed to generate a respectable $1,380 pot nevertheless.  Thanks to all the players that sailed out here!  For more information on the venue, visit
