Seattle's star Dan Louie was up late bringin' home the bacon in the Derby City Classic one-pocket mini tournament that kicked off at midnight. Louie made his way through a mixed field of 64 one- pocket players in a single-elimination bracket to meet up with Minnesota up-and-comer Tony Hilla.  

Though Louie may have seemed to be the favorite in the finals, Hilla was no slouch. He took down former US Open champ Gabe Owen and former banks runner-up Sylver Ochoa. Louie went undefeated to receive an $800 prize.

1st     Dan Louie     $800
2nd     Tony Hilla     $400
3rd     LD Coffer     $200
4th     Sylver Ochoa     $200
5th     Ken Kerekes     $50
6th     Gabe Owen     $50
7th     James Davis, Jr.     $50
8th     Dave Krenzel     $50
After the first day of the Fatboy 10-Ball Challenge, the favorites came out ahead. A loose, free-stroking  Johnny Archer defeated John Schmidt in a 15-5 landslide. Archer is hoping to cash in this event since he is not competing in any of the main events due to his trip to Germany for the WPA world team event. Spectators were shocked by Archer's unusually speedy tempo.

Brandon Shuff escaped a hill-hill battle with Jonathan Pinegar, AKA Hennesse.
