Jim Sandler Prevails at J. Pechauer East Coast Open

The J. Pechauer East Coast Open took place at Cunningham's Pool & Darts in Vero Beach, Florida the weekend of September 29-30, 2007. The $1000 added ninth stop of the tour season brought in a twenty-nine player field.

As always, after fantastic play on Saturday, the Sunday matches were intense. The quarter-finals pitted Mark Coats against Tommy Kennedy – Coats managed to skim past Kennedy 9-8; the hot seat saw Jim Sandler edge out Mike Mallen 9-8; and the semi-finals declared Mike Mallen as victor over Mark Coats 9-5. Mallen matched up with Sandler in the finals, but only to narrowly miss the opportunity to take home the tournament win as Sandler pushed past Mallen 9-8.

Some additional noteworthy finishes over the weekend included a split of $50 for highest lady finisher between Michelle Monk and Cee Jay; highest junior Mike Mallen $25; and highest senior Charlie Buckwold $50. The tour also donated $30 to a local non-profit charity in Vero Beach.

In addition, they would like to thank Cunningham's Pool & Darts for hosting an event this season and look forward to returning next season and thank the players and fans for their participation and continued support.
