Seaver Wins Again At Tiger Florida Tour’s “Cues For The Cure”

Vanessa Seaver, Sonya Chbeeb, Jeannie Seaver, Kaylee McIntosh and Deanna Foster

Once again, Jeannie Seaver went undefeated to win the Tiger Florida Tour’s 12th Annual “Cues for the Cure” breast cancer awareness fundraiser. Thirty-seven women competed at this $1600-added event which benefitted Susan G. Komen, Florida. 

In a modified double-elimination format, the women played down to four on each side.  Four players from both sides of the bracket redrew onto a final single-elimination board.  The eight finalists included Seaver, Chris Fields, Nicolle Cuellar, and Michell Monk from the winners’ side, and Sonya Chbeeb, Vanessa Seaver, Kaylee McIntosh and Deanna Frost from the one-loss side.

Seaver took out Chbeeb 5-3 in the Quarter Finals, Fields lost to Vanessa Seaver 5-2, McIntosh took the win from Cuellar 5-1, and Monk defeated Frost 5-1.  In the Semi-Final matches McIntosh stopped Monk 5-2, and the Seaver sisters paired up with Jeannie winning 5-2 over “Ness.” That left Seaver and McIntosh in the final match, with Seaver taking the win 5-3. Seaver has won this event so many times that we have lost count, giving it up only a few times over past years. Room owner Stephanie Mitchell won the event in 2018, and Crystal McCormick took the title back around 2014.

This was the first TFT event since March due to Covid-19. It was great to see everyone again, even if only from the eyes up!  Mask restrictions were still in place in Largo and the players were great in complying with the mask requirement. 

The players came from around the state. All players received Cues for the Cure T-shirts and pink masks. All monies raised through the raffles and other games benefitted Susan G. Komen, Florida. Shanelle Loraine guessed the number of Hershey Kisses and Elizabeth Tully won the M&Ms!

We cannot thank everyone enough for their support and contributions to this worthy event! Nicolle Rasmussen Cuellar (Stitch It To Me) did a fantastic job with the event T-shirts, the pool towels, pool t-shirts and toilet paper (yes, toilet paper)! Thank you to Michell Monk, Rollie Dixon and Brutal Game Gear for donating shirts for the raffle! Thanks, of course, to good friend, player and supporter Jan Sesh (Florida Ladies Coastal Tour) for adding $100 for highest finishing APA players and running the 4-ball game. A shout out to Dixie Sutton and Relocations by Dixie, Lisa Perez for her help with the raffle, Jessica Human and others for their assistance with the technical issues. A shout out to Alex for his great bingo calling! Of course, we couldn’t run the tournament without Jerry Sotelo. And most importantly, the event would not be the same without Stephanie Mitchell and The Corner Pocket and staff, and Stephanie’s support of the TFT and the Cues for the Cure! And last but not least, thanks to all of the players who came out to participate, posted your photos and contributed to the success of this event!

As ALWAYS we thank and appreciate our title sponsor, Tiger Products and Tony Kalamdaryran, Larry Wood with Boynton Billiards, Great Lakes Billiards, Simonis Cloth and AZ Billiards. Last but not least, thank you to Susan G. Komen, FL for its never-ending work and dedication to women’s health!
