CJ Wiley Captures Omega Billiards Tour Third Stop of 2016

CJ Wiley

On the weekend of March 19-20, the Omega Billiards Tour was hosted by Clicks Billiards in Arlington, Texas.   The staff and owners treated the players well with great service and an amazing atmosphere, and we very much appreciate each and every one of them!  
We were able to extend the field to 87 players for this third stop of the 2016 season.  And it was tough to predict who would come out on top with all the great talent in the field!
Always a top contender and previous Omega Billiards Tour Champion, Tony Sulsar, had a great tournament coming in 3rd with many tight races.  Phillip Palmer had another great finish as well through a lot of tough competitors and placed an impressive 4th.  Nick Evans, all the way from St. Louis and not even 20 years old yet, had wins over Ricky Ferguson 7-1, Emily Sumrall 7-2, Phillip Autieri 7-4, Greg Sandifer 7-3, Douglas Pitts hill-hill, and Forest Boyd 7-4 before finding himself in the hotseat.  CJ Wiley had a bye and then wins over Joey Salazar 9-3, Walter Huenerfuerst 9-1, Donnie Gregory 9-4, Anthony Shea 9-0 and Phillip Palmer 9-4 before meeting up with Nick in the hotseat.  CJ would win the hotseat match decisively 9-2.  
Nick was sent to the one-loss side and took care of Tony Sulsar 7-5 to get another chance against CJ Wiley in the finals.  The first match of the finals was close the whole time and Nick edged out a win 7-7, which forced a second set in this true double elimination finals.  And the second set was close again and this time it went hill-hill!  CJ broke and ran beautifully the last game to win the whole tournament!  BIG congratulations to CJ for snapping off this tough Omega event and to Nick Evans for placing an impressive 2nd! 
5th/6th places were filled by newcomer Forest Boyd and Douglas Pitts, and 7th/8th finishers were Denny Sneed and newcomer Robbie Cleland who had a fantastic first event!  
Congrats to ALL the players and fans for a great event!
