Grossman earns Southside Win

Tommy Kennedy brought his SE Open 9-Ball Tour to The Southside Billiard Club in Savannah Georgia this weekend where a field of 40 players took their shot at the $2000 in added prize money.

Brian Butler came out of the winners side with the hot-seat after a 9-6 win over David Grossman. After Grossman eliminated Scott Rabon on the one-loss side, the table was set for the rematch between Grossman and Butler.

Grossman came out stroking and quickly built a 6-1 lead. That lead was extended to 9-3, when Butler took control and scored five game wins to get back to 9-8. Butler had the chance to get back to 9-9, but couldn't get out and Grossman got to the hill at 10-8. Butler won the next game, but was unable to stop Grossman from scoring an 11-9 final win.

Grossman collected $1000 for the win, while Butler settled for $540. Rabon and Scott Lewis from North Carolina filled out the top four spots. The top junior player was Kevin Deal and the top female was Robin Middleton. Both players earned $50.

Kennedy expressed his thanks to Tom Potter for helping to run a successful event. Kennedy also expressed that Ron Park was missed at the event and everyone hopes to see him next time.

The SE Open 9-Ball Tour will be at Play-Boy Billiards in Lake Worth, FL on October 30th - 31st for their next event.
