Promoter hands World Champs Bustamante & Hohmann First Losses

Charlie Williams


New Iberia, Louisiana-  Event promoter, producer, and sometimes pro player Charlie Williams somehow managed to hand two world champs a huge loss in his Louisiana event. 3x World Champion Thorsten Hohmann and World Champion Francisco Bustamante were victims of Williams hot hand. The Championship Cloth Pro Classic events are a pro 9-Ball and 10-Ball event during October 16th-20th, 2012. The events take place side by side to the Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open all hosted by Emerald Billiards and produced by Dragon Promotions. The event is co- sponsored by Predator Cues, Poison Cues, and Aramith Balls.

Williams jumped out to a 6-0 lead against Hohmann. Thorsten was able to come back and make a match of it, but Williams played superbly and finished off the final opening left by Hohmann to win 9-6. Coincidentally, Hohmann defeated Williams just 3 days ago 9-6 at the Johnny Archer Classic, which was also produced by Williams company Dragon Promotions.

Bustamante ran over Cliff Joyner 9-1 his first match and then defeated Ralph Eckert 9-4, and Sylver Ochoa 9-3 with no contests. Williams jumped to a 2-0 lead, and while Bustamante came back with 3 games in a row to take the lead back, Charlie Williams took control of the match with 6 straight games and won 9-4.

"I'm playing good but feel like I could miss anything", laughed Williams who admitted he hasnt played much nor had time to warm up during the events. 

Only two players remain undefeated.  Robb Saez will play Williams for the hot seat.

The events are being streamed live on  and sponsored by Ozone Billiards and Predator Cues.
