Bustamante wins Joss Tour Cambridge event

Francisco Bustamante

Francisco Bustamante tuned up for next week's US Open 9-Ball Championship with an almost undefeated run through the field of 46 players at the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour event held at Great Slates Billiard Lounge in Cambridge, MD.

Bustamante took the hot-seat on Sunday with a 9-5 win over Young Hwa Jeong and waited for an opponent in the finals. While Bustamante was defeating Jeong on the winners side, 'The Freezer' Scott Frost was putting Shaun Wilkie on ice and leaving him in 4th place. Frost didn't have an answer for Jeong though, as he lost and settled for third place.

The true double elimination final between Jeong and Bustamante took two sets as Jeong won the first set 9-6. Bustamante came back and took the final set 9-4 for the win.

Bustamante won $2500 for first while Jeong settled for $1800 in second place prize money. Frost and Wilkie filled out the top four spots.

The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be at Break Time Sports Grill & Pub in Salisbury, MD on September 27th - 28th for their next event.
