Susan Mello wins AWBT Stop; Sholes tops points list

Susan Mello

We would like to start off by giving a big huge thank you to Kolbys for coming to the AWBT’s rescue and hosting this $500 added WPBA Qualifier presented by J. Pechauer Custom Cues! If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t have been able to hold this event! So THANK YOU to Jimmy, Dan, Jeff and all the folks at Kolbys! We LOVE that pool hall! The tables were in awesome shape and the food was wonderful!

The two point leaders, Holly Sholes and Susan Mello, met up in the hot seat match. Mello won sending Holly to play Susan Williams for 3rd place. Holly quickly beat Williams 7-0 and jumped back up to play Mello for the final match.

Mello beat Holly in the first set by 7 to 5 to win the tournament! This was also her very first Qualifier win! Congratulations Mello! She will be getting a paid entry into her choice of a 2008 WPBA Classic Event to attend!

By finishing 2nd Holly Sholes locked up the prestigious title of AWBT Points Champion! This means that in addition to the 2 paid spots she’s already earned by winning the two past AWBT Qualifiers presented by J. Pechauer Custom Cues, she will also receive an unpaid invite to all the other 2008 WPBA Classic events! Congratulations Holly!

The AWBT also held a raffle for a beautiful J. Pechauer Custom Cue valued at $520! The winner was Kristie Ortega’s very own boyfriend, Scooter!!! Congratulations Scott! We are all very jealous but you deserve it for helping us out so much! The AWBT raised $260 in this raffle, so a big thanks goes out to everyone who bought raffle tickets for your support!
