Crosby & Pete take down TJ’s

Corey Deuel and Tony Crosby

TJ's New Port Richey Florida hosted this weeks $1700 Added event.

The $1000 added open event kicked off with a very strong 25 player field.

With players like Corey Deuel, Tony Crosby, Ronnie Wiseman, Richie Richeson, James Roberts, Julio Aquino, Justin Hall just to mention a few this event would be wide open. Corey Deuel would go onto capture the hotseat with wins over Ronnie Wiseman 7-5, Tony Crosby 7-6, Richie Richeson 7-4 and then in the hotseat match a win over James Roberts 7-2.

On the one loss side Tony Crosby was looking very determined and after dropping a hill hill match to Deuel earlier he would go onto record wins over Bill Dunsmore 7-4, Julio Aquino (tour points leader) 7-6, Jason Richko 7-3, Richie Richeson 7-4 and a semi final win over James Robertsw 7-6.

In the final Deuel would take a 2-0 lead only for Crosby to level it and stay level trading games till it got to 4-4 Deuel would scratch on the break and Crosby would run out and never look back as he broke and ran the next game and would stay in control and take the match 9-6 with first place money of $650.

The $700 Added Amateur event would draw another full field. We had to close the field at this event to 64 players due to only 10 tables for match play.

The field also was a big draw for Junior players with 9 taking advantage of reduced entry fees and also 6 ladies.

Tony Pete would come out on top of this strong 64 man field and go onto be only the 2nd player this season to win 2 events along with Albert Howe. Albert Howe was looking like taking his 3rd title of the year as he put himself in the hotseat with wins over Brenden Sorrentino, Matt Bauris and points leader Mark Wathen, Tim Heath and a hotseat match win over Rich Johnson 6-2.

On the one loss side Tony Pete would win 5 matches in a row to get himself back to the final to play Howe.

Pete was in no mood to let Howe extend his winning streak to 3 and went onto take this match 7-4 in the single race final. Pete is now level with Howe on 2 wins each for the season this also has made the points race for Amateur player of the year a little tighter.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and TJ's Billiards for making this another Great KF Cue Tour Event.

Our next event will be at Fast Breaks in Longwood, Orlando, Florida. March 28th/29th we look forward to seeing you all there. Check out for updates and rankings.
