Gomez Ten Ball King

John Morra and Roberto Gomez with Railyard Billiards owner Kyle Ferguson

Railyard Billiards & Sport Pub in Louisville, KY was the venue for the latest Champions Ten Ball Challenge featuring Roberto Gomez and John Morra.

Owned by Kyle and Matt Ferguson, this brand new room features 31 Diamond ProAm pool tables, three bars serving craft brews and cocktails, a full menu, 26 TVs and a covered deck with live music! Sounds fabulous!

The format for this event was races to 25 – two out of three sets. Playing call shot ten ball with no early tens and using a triangle rack, it was winner breaks – rack your own.

Hailing from Canada, John is the current HEX.COM Ten Ball champ as well as this year’s Texas Open Ten Ball runner-up. As most people know, John switched hands a few years ago and seems to be playing as well – if not better – than he did before!

Originally from the Philippines and currently living in Houston, TX and is the Bogies East’s House Pro, Roberto is red-hot! While one pocket seems to be his game this past year having won the Texas Open One Pocket Championship last week, the 2021 International Open One Pocket division and the 2021 Midwest Open One Pocket Championship, Roberto is no slouch when it comes to ten ball either! He snapped off the Diveney Cues Bar Box 10 Ball Classic earlier this year as well as the 2021 Diamond Open 10 Ball Championship last fall.

Looking for revenge as the runner-up in last month’s  HEX.COM Ten Ball Championship, Day One was pretty much all Roberto as he rocketed out to a 10-3 lead and never looked back. Final score – 25-18.

Day Two saw Roberto leading 5-4. John tied the match at five games each and then slowly pulled away. First a one game lead, then two, then three and never more than a four game lead, he closed the match out with the final score of 25-22.

Day Three started out with the players tied at three games each and then John inched out to one game ahead – 4-3. From there, Roberto took dead aim and moved out to a massive lead. He closed out the decider 25-12 and took the cheese!  Congratulations, Roberto! Good effort, John!
