Bustamante wins at Drexeline Billiards

'Django' went undefeated for the win

The Joss northeast 9-Ball Tour visited Drexeline Billiards in Drexel Hill, Pa. for the fist time ever on October 6 & 7, 2001. 66 Players showed to vie for the over $7700 in prize money. This was the first tour event in Pennsylvania and from the way we were treated it will not be the last. Bob Maidhof the owner of Drexeline joined the Joss sponsors, Joss Cues ltd. Webb Custom Cues, Giuseppe Cases, Capone Custom Cues and Simonis by adding $2500 to the event. Players like Bustamante, Hopkins, Immonen, Williams, Martinez, Lebron, Zuglan and more were in the field. Local Philly players added to the already strong field and made this a great tournament to watch.

All day Saturday and Sunday matches were exciting and close with run outs, hill-hill sets, great safe play and more. Matches like Martinez trailing Zuglan 5-4 and running 5 and out to win the set. Allen Hopkins and Martinez going hill-hill and Raphael miscuing 4 times that cost him the set. In the Finals Bustamante and Hopkins battling nip and tuck all the way to the hill and Allen scratching on the break to give Franciso ball in hand on an open table to run out and win the championship match. If your are ever in the Philly area stop by Drexeline Billiards. Bob Maidhof and his crew will go out of their way to make you feel right at home as he did us. If this is an example of how it is in the "Keystone State" it will always be a pleasure to go back there. Great room, great competion and knowledgeable fans.
