Jordan goes undefeated to take stop on the Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour

Jeff Jordan worked his way undefeated through a field of 37 entrants, on-hand for the May 10-11 stop on the Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour. In so doing, he stopped a strong challenge by Timothy Orange, who won seven on the loss side to face him in the finals. The $1,000-added event was hosted by Mr. Cues 2, in Atlanta, GA.
Jordan advanced to a winners' side semifinal against James Bannister, as Bucky Suouvanthong squared off against Tommy Najar. Identical 7-4 scores against Souvanthong and Bannister put Najar and Jordan into the hot seat match, where Jordan prevailed 7-5.
Over on the loss side, Orange was working on his seven-match, loss-side streak that would propel him to the finals. In his third and fourth victories, he defeated John Visotsky and Hadi Lee, both 7-4, which set him up to face Bannister, coming over from the winners' side semifinal. Souvanthong drew Esteban Hernandez, who'd defeated Duane Davis 7-5 and spoiled a re-match for Orange by defeating Randy Jordan, double hill. 
Hernandez and Orange handed Souvanthong and Bannister their second straight defeat, both 7-4, and faced each other in the quarterfinals, where Orange prevailed in a double hill battle. Orange then took down Tommy Najar 7-3 in the semifinals, and got a shot at Jeff Jordan in the hot seat. Jordan and Orange fought back and forth to an 8-8 tie, before Jordan completed his undefeated run to claim the event title.
