Ryan Robinson wins All American Tour Stop

The twenty-ninth stop on the 2009-2010 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) was hosted in E. Moline, Illinois, on Saturday, February 5, at Leisure Time Billiards.  The $500 added event featured a full field of sixty-four players in a double-elimination, “No Masters”, 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.  Anthony Garcia (Cedar Rapids, IA) swept through the A-side undefeated, topping his victories off with a 4-1 domination of Ryan Robinson (Davenport, IA) in the A-side semi-finals and a 4-1 run over Mike Peiffer (Washington, IA) in the A-side finals.  On the B-side Robinson recovered to eliminate Don Grawe at 5th place by a 4-2 margin, while Dean Fuller (Davenport, IA) tied Grawe when he fell at the hands of Steve Westlin (Davenport, IA) 4-3.  Robinson then ended the runs of Westlin at 4th place by a 4-2 score and Mike Peiffer at 3rd place by a 4-2 margin.  In the tournament finals, Ryan Robinson took full advantage of another opportunity at Anthony Garcia by claiming two sets 4-2, 4-3 for the title!
By virtue of Ryan Robinson being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 8-Ball singles entry into the 2010 ACS Nationals in Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric, Nick Varner Signature Cases, Ozone Billiards, Pool Cue Guru and Billiard Gods Productions for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour.
