Chad Lund Tops All American Tour Carom Room Stop

The twenty-second stop of the 2005/2006 McDermott All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance - ACS) featured a $500-added purse and thirty-five players hosted by owner David Coles at The Carom Room in Beloit, Wisconsin, on Saturday, April 22. The event featured double-elimination 9-ball on bar boxes, and Chad Lund of Madison, Wisconsin, sailed undefeated through the field. In the hot-seat match, Lund - rated a '5' on a regional handicap system used - dominated Dave Coles (Beloit, WI), rated a '6', 5-1. In the loser's bracket finals, Coles [6] recovered to eliminate Ken Harvell [4] (Broadhead, WI) 6-3. The title match ended in dynamic fashion, as Lund raced to his goal of five first to defeat Dave Coles [6] 5-5 for the championship.
