Bryant goes undefeated at Corner Pockets in Fayetteville on Q City 9-Ball Tour

Brian Bryant, who races to 9 during stops on the Q City 9-Ball Tour, spends a lot of his time battling opponents who have to win fewer games; most in the vicinity of 6 or 7 games. In his final four matches during the March 19 stop on the Q City 9-Ball Tour, he used victories over opponents racing to 12 (Keith Bennett), 7 (Daniel Adams) and 6 (Colin Hall) to go undefeated and claim the title. The event drew 44 entrants to Corner Pockets in Fayetteville, NC.
Daniel Adams took Bryant to double hill in a winners' side semifinal, before Bryant prevailed to face Keith Bennett, who'd earned his spot in the winners' side final by shutting out Robert Ash 12-0. Bryant claimed the hot seat 9-5 over Bennett and waited for the return of Colin Hall.
Hall, sent to the loss side in an early-round, double hill match by Ash, went to work on a seven-match, loss-side winning streak that would make him Bryant's last opponent. In loss-side wins #3 and #4, he defeated Mark Millwood, 6-2 and survived a double hill battle against Chris Baumann, which set him up for a re-match against Ash. Adams drew Brian Pate, who'd gotten by Andy Bowden and Christy Norris, both 6-4.
Hall eliminated Ash 6-2 and in the quarterfinals, faced Pate, who'd downed Adams 6-3. Hall took the quarterfinal match versus Pate, double hill, and then eliminated Bennett, who in his two straight losses chalked up fewer racks than he had in his winners' side semifinal match versus Ash (12-8). Bryant completed his undefeated run with a 9-3 victory over Hall in the finals.
