Kotnik wins All American Tour Stop

Duncan Kaufman, John Kotnik and Terry “Ziggy” Zagar

The 2011-2012 Lucasi Hybrid Cues All American Tour – presented by the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) – conducted its twenty-sixth (26) stop at Dale’s Weston Lanes in Wausau, WI, March 10.  Thirty-one (31) players sparred at the host site in a $500-added scratch 8-ball tournament.  The A-side semifinals highlighted Sheboygan WI road partners John Kotnik and Terry “Ziggy” Zagar stamping their ticket to the A-side finals via respective wins over Jim Abt (Wausau, WI) 5-1 and Chris Jefferson (Crandon, WI) 5-2 in the semifinals.  In the A-side finals, Kotnik clipped Zagar for the hot seat, 5-4.

On the B-side Rodney Coad (Stevens Point, WI) and Jim Abt (Wausau, WI) respectively relegated John Lewis (Suamico, WI) 5-4 and Jim Morris (Marathon, WI) 5-2 to 7th place.  In the next round in turn, Coad and Abt tied for 5th place, falling to the respective hands of Chris Jefferson 5-2 and Duncan Kaufman (Sauk City, WI) 5-2.  Kaufman then dispatched Jefferson to 4th place via a forfeit.  In the B-side finals Kaufman fell to Terry Zagar by a 5-3 margin, setting up a rematch for the title between Kotnik and Zagar.  Kotnik took the first set by a 5-4 margin for the tourney win!

By virtue of Jim Morris being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2012 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric and Nick Varner Signature Cases for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour.
