The 15th Derby City Classic is officially underway.  

The 9-Ball Banks started on Friday January 25th with the players meeting at noon and the draw directly after.  The 353 players started the first round at 1PM.  By 8PM half the field, 176 players, with one loss had to decide if they wanted to exercise their rebuy option.  

Round Two started on Friday evening and goes into Saturday morning. Missing from the Banks and possibly from the competitors is “The Magician Efren Reyes”. 

The 2012 Banks winner John Morra won his first round match but Shane Van Boening suffered a first round loss to Shannon Murphy of Ohio.  John and Shane have second round matches on Saturday.
