Double Dipping Is The Flavor Of The Week In Viking Billiard Event

Manuel Chau

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour rolled into Virginia this past weekend where Blue Fox Billiards played host to both the Open and Amateur Divisions.  The Events drew in players from around the region as the event hosted players from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, West Virginia and Georgia.  Blue Fox Billiards and The Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour hosted 88 entries, as players battled for their shot at taking home a share of the prize monies up for grabs this weekend.

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Open Tour turned out to be full of upsets as local favorites Matt Clatterbuck finished 17-24th and Brandon Shuff finished 5-6th  in the tournament.  The event would be won by Manuel Chau who worked his way back from the one loss side to the finals to face Justin Daniels from Ohio who had made his way undefeated into the finals but Chau would double dip Daniels to win the Open Division.  Chau won set one 9-3 and set two 9-2.  The tournament chart is available for viewing at Maxim Billiards.

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Amateur Tour kicked off on Sunday and with a prize fund of $2000 available.  Double dipping would also be the flavor in the Amateur as Ryan Jones and Shawn Toni, both from Maryland, would battle it out for first Toni had made his way thru the top half of the brackets and everyone thought he had this one in the bag until he faced Ryan Jones in finals, who had begin his run in the bottom of the brackets and was sent to the left side of the chart by Toni in the match for the hot seat.  Jones came back with a vengeance to the finals where he would defeat Toni in both sets to take the win.  Jones won set one 6-3; set two 5-2.
