Pagulayan unbeaten at Stan James Day One

Alex Pagulayan

Defending US Open Champion Alex Pagulayan survived a first-round hill-hill match against Jason Klatt to remain on the winner's side and then cruised past Ed Reyes and John Morra to remain unbeaten on day one of the Stan James Canadian Nine Ball Tour at Bigwigs Billiards in Newmarket, Ontario.

Alex is joined by Felix Beardy, Luc Salvas, Alain Martel, Erik Hjorleifson, Peter Kippie, Raymond Cruz and Jody Matheson on the unbeaten side beginning Sunday morning. There are also eight players left with a somewhat longer road to travel on the one-loss side of the charts. These eight, all in the money now, are Ed Galati, John Morra, John Jorgenson, Bill Lockerby, George Cornelius, Lester Mianskum, Mario Morra and Jason Klatt.

With over $11,000 in prize money and $3,000 waiting up top, these sixteen players will resume play on Sunday morning at 11 AM. We will send you the results early Monday morning as travel precludes sending them out on Sunday night.
