Casey Brokus wins Iowa All American Tour Stop

Casey Brokus

The thirty-seventh stop on the 2010-2011 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) was showcased in Columbus Junction, Iowa, on Saturday, March 5, at Tequila Bar.  The $1,000 added “No Masters” event featured ninety-three players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes. Dave Martin (Burlington, IA) and Travis Frazelle (Moline, IL) converged on the hot seat match via semifinal wins over Casey Brokus (Dubuque, IA) 3-1 and Rex Houston (Ft. Madison, IA) 3-2 respectively.

On the B-side Dan Sundstrom (Cedar Rapids, IA) knocked John Gorsch (Cedar Rapids, IA) into 7th place 3-1, and Rob Hess (Moline, IL) tied Gorsch at the hands of Will Thompson (Clinton, IA) 1-3.  Thompson and Houston then exited at 5th place in the next round to the cues of Casey Brokus 2-3 and Dan Sundstrom 1-3 respectively.  Brokus then stopped Sundstrom's progress at 4th place by a 3-2, and Brokus then won a trip to the tourney finals by eliminating Travis Frazelle at 3rd place 3-1.  It appeared that Casey Brokus was amply warmed up for the title match, as he claimed the first-place prize over Dave Martin in two sets – 3-0, 3-1 !

By virtue of Casey Brokus being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 8-Ball singles entry into the 2011 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric and Nick Varner Signature Cases for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour.
