Jabterakes goes undefeated on J. Pechauer Ride the 9 Tour

Eli Jabterakes went undefeated on the J. Pechauer Ride the 9 Tour on Sunday, October 23, defeating Dave Wright twice; once among the winners' side final four, and again, in the finals. The $150-added event drew 39 entrants to Snooker's Billiards, Bar & Grill in Providence, RI.

They met first among the winners' side final four, when Wright moved west following his first 5-4 defeat at the hands of Jabterakes. Nelson Oliveira, in the meantime, sent Kevin Bauccio to the loss-side 7-4 and turned to face Jabterakes in the battle for the hot seat. With Nelson needing to reach 7 games, Jabterakes gained the hot seat 6-5.

Wright moved to the loss-side to face Cleiton Rocha, who'd defeated Jeff Seal and Gary Rose to reach him. Bauccio picked up D.J. Hopkins, who'd gotten by Danny Pavao and T.J. Perrino. Wright downed Rocha 5-5 and moved on to the quarterfinals against Bauccio, who'd defeated Hopkins 5-4. 

Wright then defeated Bauccio 5-4 and completed his three-match, loss-side journey with a 6-5 victory over Oliviera in the semifinals. Jabterakes completed his undefeated run with a single set, 5-4 victory over Wright in the finals.

Tour director Gloria Magnano thanked the ownership and staff of Snooker's Billiards, Bar & Grill for their support and assistance, and welcomed tour newcomers Jeff Seal, Bobby Jones, Rick Gatta, Al Michaud, Anthony Disegna, Andrew Wilkinson, Mike Santoro, Mike Uttley, and Dave Venditti.
