Nick Conner Captures Second Omega Billiard

Denny Sneed, Nick Conner, and Tony Sulsar

On the weekend of September 6-7, Nick Conner dominated the field of 81 players and won first place again on the Omega Billiards Tour!  Clicks Billiards in Arlington, TX was the awesome host for the event and everyone had a great time watching and playing good pool all weekend.  This was the 6th stop of the Omega Billiards Tour this year and $1,500 was added again to the prize fund.
Nick Conner placed 2nd at the previous stop in August and 1st at the June event.  So, with September’s win, Nick has pretty much sealed his first place in the Predator Player Points Tracker for the end of the year Rankings!  
After a first round bye, Nick defeated David Franklin 7-1, David Josephson 7-1, Juan Parra 7-2, Tony Sulsar 7-5 and then Keith Aikens 7-1 to seal his spot to play in the hotseat against Denny Sneed, whom he defeated 7-2.
Denny Sneed from Midland, Odessa was the farthest traveler and he had his best tournament yet!  He had wins over David Cowell 7-3, hill-hill over Daniel Herring, Cody Wright 7-5, and then stomped local favorite Dylan Weinheimer 7-0.
Last year’s Tour Champion, Tony Sulsar, after his loss to Nick, went on a tear on the one-loss side with wins over Cody Wright 8-5, Jesse Hernandez 8-0, and Dylan Weinheimer 8-1.  Daniel Herring got close to stopping Tony but at hill-hill, Tony prevailed over another match to keep going.  
Tony then defeated Denny Sneed 8-1, giving Denny his highest finish yet at 3rd place!  
This lead to Tony and Nick battling it out in the finals.  It was close all the way with GREAT play as usual from these two fantastic players but Nick prevailed 7-4 to capture his second First Place win on the Omega Tour!  Nick earned $925 for first place, Tony earned $530 and Denny nabbed $400.
Big shout out to Keith Aikens for a great 5th place finish and Casey Calame for an awesome 7th place – their highest finishes yet on the Omega Tour.
The whole tournament was a great display of talent!   Congratulations to ALL of the players for their fine play and great finishes!
This stop was especially sweet as Hall-of-Famer Buddy Hall was in attendance!  Buddy gladly posed with fans and gave autographs all day long.  It was a huge treat for the Omega Tour players to have Buddy Hall around all day Saturday.
The Predator Player Tracker is in full force and the top three players at the end of the year will win a plethora of awesome Predator Prizes!  Only 1 more stop to see who gets all the Predator products:   Currently Nick Conner is now in the top ranked spot, Crispian Ng is in second, and Tony Sulsar is in the third place ranking.  Further, fourth through eighth places at the end of the year rankings will each receive a free entry into the 2015 BCAPL Nationals!
