We’re down to the last 3.

In the wee, small hours, Mr. Under-the-Radar-No-More, Josh Roberts sent the, until then, unbeaten Darren Appleton to make use of his Derby City Classic buy-back option.

As Fedor Gorst had drawn the bye that resulted in Josh playing Darren, he must compete in the next round of play: You cannot have back-to-back byes at the Derby.

Fedor Gorst will compete in the Semis at 4 pm.

Whether he plays Darren or Josh is yet to be determined

The Finals will commence at 6 pm.

With his first in Banks and at least runner-up in One-Pocket, Fedor Gorst has gotten a head-start in the quest for a DCC All-Around Champion.

Of course, if Fedor captures the One-Pocket today, with two titles he’ll be invincible; And the undisputed All-Around Champion.

But let’s not forget Jayson: With his 2nd in Banks, he is a contender.

Then, he who finishes highest in the 9-Ball will have the honor…and the $20,000 bonus money.

Coincidentally, Darren gave Fedor his first loss. And Gorst gave Roberts his.

And, as if that weren’t enough, Darren Appleton has drawn Corey Deuel in the first 9-Ball match of the day.

It’s at noon on the TV table:

Brutal or Blessing? At least he’ll be prepared for competitive play.
