Meglino and Foster take down KF cue tour events

John Foster and Tommy Kennedy

Ultimate Billiards in Ft Pierce, FL, was the latest room to host the KF Cue Tour.

This room always has a strong field and this event was no different with 52 players turning out for the $1000 Added Amateur event. Jeff Mabry who has a good record in this room was showing why by going undefeated to take the hotseat with strong wins over Jeff Stratton 7-5, Angel Rivera 7-2, Doug Young 7-6, Chris Gentile 7-5, Jason Sheerman 7-1 which would bring him back Sunday to Face Anthony Meglino for the hotseat. Meglino kicked off with a hard fought 7-6 win over Raymond Linares and followed it up with wins over Robert Cosenza 7-6, Mark Shenandoah 7-0, Prescott Buckwold 7-4 and then a 7-2 win over Danny Satinoff to make his way back to Sunday.

The final four players making there way back Sunday would see Jeff Mabry v Anthony Meglino on the winner's side and Prescott Buckwold v Danny Satinoff on the one loss side. Jeff Mabry would take the hotseat match with 7-4 and Prescott Buckwold would beat Satinoff 5-4 on the one loss side. The semi final match would see Meglino beat Buckwold 5-4 to get a rematch with Mabry for the amateur title. The final was a single race to 8 and Meglino came out playing great pool to take his first amateur title with an impressive 8-2 win.

The $1000 added open event kicked off with 47 players, 28 of these players were amateurs taking advantage of reduced entry of $40 if they had played in the Saturdays Amateur event.

Some notable names in attendance were Tommy Kennedy, John Ditoro, Rob Saez, Tony Crosby, Rafael Martinez and Richard Broumpton to mention a few.

The day would kick off with a good first round battle between Rob Saez and Tony Crosby, Crosby would run out a 7-4 winner and go onto the winners side final with wins over Sam Kantar 7-5, Trey Jankowski 7-5, Pierre Palmieri 7-4 and then a 7-4 win over Raul Alverez to get in winners final where he would face John Foster. Foster had battled his way through with wins over Prescott Buckwold 7-4, Rick Gatta 7-4, Curtis Kelly 7-2 and then Richard Broumpton 7-3. Foster would also come out on top in the winners side final playing some strong pool to take a 7-5 win over Crosby.

While all this was going on Tommy Kennedy who had taken a 2nd round loss to Louis Altes was making his way back with wins over Sam Kantar, John Ditoro, Doug Young, Pierre Palmieri, Richard Broumpton, Curtis Kelly and then a 7-4 win over Crosby to put himself in the final.

John Foster was playing great pool all day and the final was no different. He would take a 7-3 lead in the single race to 8 and look like winning easy until Kennedy started a late charge, and would take the next 3 games to get to 7-6 and just when he looked like tying the match up at 7-7 he would miss a straight in 9 to hand Foster the match.
