Julio Del Pozo too strong for Orlando in Spring Hill

George Saunders and Julio Del Pozo

42 players made there way to Capone's Billiard's lounge Spring Hill, Florida for the $700 Added Amateur event 6,3,09.

Orlando has a very strong contingent of Amateur players which certainly was showing up on the day with Ted Lepak, George Saunders, Julio Del Pozo and Travis Moore making up the final 4 players undefeated on the winner's side.

Julio Del Pozo would be the man to beat on the day making his way to the hotseat with wins over Louie (the Spoiler) Smith, Buzzy Thompson, Jeff Primmer, travis Moore and then a strong win over George Saunders 7-4 to get the hotseat. Saunders was 5-0 down before he won his first game which he followed it up with 3 more to get it back to 5-4, Del Pozo had other ideas and would would win the next 2 to take this match.

On the one loss side Albert Howe who lost his first match to Charles Marable hill hill was on a mission. Albert would win 7 matches in a row before running into Ted Lepak. Lepak who had already dispatched Bobby Moore on the winner's side would now send Moore road partner Howe home in 4th place with a strong 5-2 win. Lepak would now have his rematch with Saunders, Saunders would prove to strong on the day sending Lepak home in 3rd and give him a Final rematch with Del Pozo.

Saunders was looking strong early in the match trading racks to take a 4-3 lead. It would be all Del Pozo from there the winning 6 racks in a row to take his first KF title, Trophy and prize fund of $525.
