Jeff Abernathy Strikes at The Pechauer Queen City 8-Ball Open

The J. Pechauer Custom Cues Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour held a one day event at Morey's Billiards in Charlotte, North Carolina on November 24, 2007 entitled The Pechauer Queen City 8-Ball Open. This $500 added event brought in forty-five competitors to the eleventh stop of the tour's season. Included in the field were such names as Mike Davis, Tommy Kennedy and Jeff Abernathy.

The road to the finals included Jeff Abernathy besting Rob Krull 4-2 for the hot seat, which left Abernathy undefeated and awaiting an opponent. As Abernathy rested, Mike Davis was eliminated by Jim Jennings in the quarterfinals by a score of 3-1. This set-up the semi-finals between Krull and Jennings, with Krull coming out on top 3-2. Krull then had a chance at a rematch with Abernathy, but as close as he was, Krull had to settle for second place as the final score was 4-3.

In addition to great play by these gentlemen, the highest lady finisher honors went to Christi Causey along with a $30 payout for her efforts. Great shooting Christi!

Thanks go out to Morey's Billiards' management and staff for supporting the tour and for hosting this wonderful stop. The next scheduled event ($500 added) will be The Pechauer Stuart Open at Amy's Billiards in Stuart, Florida the weekend of December 8-9, 2007.
