Chris Fields Dominates DFW 9-Ball Ladies Tour Finale Event

DFW 9-Ball Ladies Tour held their last event for this 2020 challenging year on Saturday, October 24th at Snookered Restaurant and Billiards in Frisco, TX.  Special thanks to Craig and Jana Lucas, owners of Snookered for hosting our stop and we hope to be back next year for more fun-filled and competitive tournaments.

The DFW 9-Ball Ladies Tour Committee (Ginger Abadilla, Jennifer Hooten, Monica Anderson and David “Doc” Reyes, tournament director) would also like to thank OB Cues as our ladies’ tour sponsor for all of our tour stops.    OB Cues, made in Plano, TX, strives to provide high performance billiards equipment including the latest popular products in playing shafts, playing cues, break and jump cues plus other equipment.  Be sure to check them out at for more information.

We can’t say enough about Fort Worth Billiards Superstore and Albert Trujillo.  They have been a DFW 9-Ball Tour sponsor since 2018 and continue to support the ladies’ tournaments every stop as well.  Fort Worth Billiards Superstore has a wide range of gameroom, pool and billiards equipment, tables, furniture, accessories, darts, shuffleboards, and much, much, much more.  Anything and everything you need for your sports and gameroom pleasures can be found at

A little bit of history about the DFW 9-Ball Ladies Tour which was formed in 2019 was to provide an avenue of competitive 9-ball tournament opportunities in the DFW Metroplex for a wide-range of skilled level female pool players.   All ladies tour stops are handicapped events based on a player’s Fargo rating (minimum 200 games must be established).  If you don’t have a Fargo rating, we will use an APA skill level if you have one.  If you don’t have either of those, we will set your skill level based on known ability.  Our tour skill levels begin with 3’s all the way to 7’s.   A handicapped tournament, such as ours, will give all players an opportunity to test their mettle against the best as well as hopefully pick up a few pointers along the way.  But most of all, we encourage fun and relaxation while escaping life with some 9-ball pool therapy.

Our ladies tour events are always one-day tournaments with guaranteed $500 added monies with an entry fee of $30.  On Saturday, we had 28 ladies venture to Snookered to match up and catch up with favorite friends plus meet some new friends in the process.  We had seven (SL 3’s); ten (SL 4’s); four (SL 5’s); three (SL 6’s) and four (SL 7’s).  With this great variety of all skill levels, it would be a strong fight to the finish.  Our top three Snookered main event finishers are featured below:

Tara Williams, Chris Fields and Rachelle Dytko


Chris Fields was unstoppable in every match.  She played strong, precise and smart throughout the entire day.  In fact, her overall tournament record, while playing in a total of six matches, racked up a masterful win/loss record of 36-6.

We also held a Second Chance tournament as we had the time, tables and ladies who wanted to keep on playing.  Eight ladies paid a $20 entry fee with the tour adding $100 and Snookered adding $50 for a total purse of $310.
