Morra, Lunda & Kiamco Take It Down In Illinois

Devin Poteet and John Morra

The Racks On The Rocks Classic was the place to be this past weekend. Located in West Peoria, IL and owned by Rob and Heather Williams, they hosted three divisions – one pocket, eight ball and a nine ball mini.

Local sponsors C-N-C Fireworks, Kinner Excavating, Pip-N-Tree, Inc., Glad’s Tire Service, Elite Custom Services, Denbesten Real Estate and Beast Mode Products contributed to the $11,000 added event.
The $5,000 added one pocket division started on Wednesday night and by Friday afternoon was down to two players – Scott Frost and Evan Lunda. Scott came out of the gate firing but when it was all over, Evan had claimed the title with a 6-3 score.
The $5,000 added Open Bar Table Eight Ball began on Friday night and ran all weekend. By Sunday night, the field had been whittled down to John Morra and Devin Poteet. John was too much for Devin as he grabbed the trophy 7-5.

One Pocket Winner Evan Lunda

Meanwhile, the $1,000 Nine Ball Mini kicked off with nine players putting up $500 each. Although the field was small, the talent was huge. Racing to nine, the single elimination event came down to Roland Garcia and Warren Kiamco. The Warrior has been on a tear in the last few events and this one was no different. Final score – 9-7 Warren.
