Richard Broumpton

Ultimate Billiards in Ft Pierce hosted there first ever KF event and another record breaking field turned out. The $1,700 added event attracted 112 entrants over the 2 days.

The $1000 Added open kicked off with 47 players and with Richard Broumpton doing all the damage. Broumpton went through to the finals undefeated with wins over Johnny Reaves 7-5, Javier Chirino 7-2, Cal Mcgann 7-3, Doug Johnson 7-3, Curtis Kelley 7-3 which would put him up against Eddie Cabrera for the hot seat match. Cabrera was having a break out event beating several of the top players in the field which included wins over Han Berber 7-5, Gail Grecar 7-1 and then a win over Bill Dunsmore to put him up against Broumpton for the hotseat match.

This match was a tight affair with Broumpton edging a 7-4 win to take the hotseat. He would now wait the winner of the one loss side where Josh Lewis was a man on a mission. Lewis had lost his first round match to Prescott Buckwold 7-4 and then went on to record 9 very impressive wins beating the likes of Han Berber 7-6, Mike Destefano 7-3, Doug Johnson 7-3, Tony Crosby 7-4, Bill Dunsmore 7-5, Curtis Kelley 7-6 and then a win over over Eddie Cabrera to put himself in the final and leave Eddie Cabrera with a fine 3rd place finish.

The Finals was all Broumpton. Broumpton had recently switched to the new line of Concept Cues which tour director Tony Crosby and Corey Deuel have been developing. It proved to be the right Concept for Broumpton as he dominated a one sided final besting Lewis 9-2 in the single race final and take his first KF Cue Tour win with the $800 winners purse.
