Dave Perry wins All American Tour Opener

The first stop of the 50-stop 2008/2009 Pechauer All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) was hosted at Smokies in Virginia Beach, VA, on Saturday, October 4.  The $500 added event featured a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.  Dave Perry (Virginia Beach, VA) took an undefeated route to the finals.  In the A-side finals, Perry sweated out a 5-4 win over Dave Wallace (Portsmouth, VA).  Earlier in the A-bracket semis, Perry eclipsed Harry Kernodle (Norfolk, VA) 5-3, while Wallace overwhelmed Bill Mason (Virginia Beach, VA) 5-1.  In the B-side quarterfinals Joe Hughes ousted Harry Kernodle 5-2, while Bill Mason ended Michael Ewing's (Virginia Beach, VA) run at 5th place, 5-3.  In the B-side semifinals Bill Mason put up the good fight, but was ousted at 4th place by Joe Hughes, 5-4.  The B-side finals showcased Dave Wallace eliminating Joe Hughes in 3rd place by a 5-3 margin.  Dave Wallace needed to take two sets for the title from the undefeated Dave Perry, but Perry wisely ended the tournament by the closest of margins – 5-4 – in the first set for the crown!
By virtue of Dave Perry being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2009 ACS Nationals in Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors J.
