Coulter Wins in Port Charlotte

The 2011-2012 Lucasi Hybrid Cues All American Tour – presented by the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) – featured its 10th Tour stop at Q's Sports Bar & Girl in Port Charlotte, FL, Saturday, November 12.  The $500-added 8-ball scratch tourney on 7-foot Valley bar boxes drew 17 players.  On the A-side semifinals, Tim Barron (Bradenton, FL) dispatched Albert Baker 4-1 (Port Charlotte, FL), while Ken Coulter (Punta Gorda, FL) took out Bill Eisenhard (Bradenton, FL) 4-2.  Coulter then claimed the hot seat by clipping Barron 4-3 in the finals.  On the B-side Eisenhard eliminated Baker at 4th place 4-2; but then Eisenhard was eliminated at 3rd place at the hands of Tim Barron 4-1.  Tim Barron almost made the best of his rematch with Ken Coulter in the tourney finals, by winning the first set 4-3.  The second set went to the hill as well, but Ken Coulter emerged 4-3 for the title!
By virtue of Ken Coulter being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2012 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  Mindy Lyles (Punta Gorda, FL) won the raffle for the Lucasi Hybrid Cue.  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. Sponsorship opportunities and tour stop openings are still available for the 2011/2012 All American Tour by contacting the ACS.
