Page pulls ahead to win FBT Mini-Tour event at Grovers

West Palm Beach, FL (June 9, 2012) – Jennifer Page and Debbie Barkley made it through the round robin format to the finals of the second FBT Mini-Tour event of 2012, held at Grover’s Billiards in West Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday, June 9, 2012.  In this handicapped event, the players played each player a set of 3 games, one 8-ball and two 9-ball.

Robin Boggs and Sue Roberts played strong, as did Alicia DeAbreau and Susan Martin.  The games were played on bar boxes, and the scores were very close.  Page and Barkley ended up with 11 games each. The final match was a race to five, with the winner of the lag picking the race or the game, 8-ball or 9-ball.  The match started with 8-ball, and Barkley took the lead 2-1. However, Page came back and took the lead in 9-ball.  But for Barkley’s scratch on the 8-ball it likely would have been a hill-hill match, but Page won the next game and the match.  In addition to cash, Page wins a paid entry to the Flamingo Billiard Tour stop at Slate Billiards in Boynton Beach, Florida on June 23, 2012.

Many thanks to Grover’s room owner Jason Jenkins for supporting the Flamingo Billiards Mini-Tour, and thanks to all the players who came out to play.

Christine Terlizzi Wins First Mini-Tour Event

West Palm Beach, FL (Nov. 5, 2011) – Christina Terlizzi of Stuart, Florida, won her first tournament at the Flamingo Billiards Tour 8-Ball/9-Ball Mini-Tour event on Saturday at Grover’s Billiards in West Palm Beach, Florida.  Christina played strong on the winner’s side, sending Jennifer Page and Nicole Martino to the one-loss side.  However, Valerie Smith stopped Terlizzi as they both vied to make it to the hot seat.

Terlizzi made it back to the finals with a close win over Janis Sessions, who played strong all day ending the day for Carmen Henriquez, Lauren Pickard and Nicole Martino.  Out for revenge, Terlizzi went back and forth with Smith in the final match in a close race to seven.  Ultimately, Smith missed the chance to go double hill, letting Terlizzi take the match and her first win!

Many thanks to Jason Jenkins, owner of Grover’s Billiards for his support of the Flamingo Billiards Tour.
