Cannon rolls in Lexington

Daulton did not draw a bye the entire event

Shannon Daulton went undefeated including two wins over Travis Stamper to win The 2001 Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour National Championship. In a tournament that saw a number of players take advantage of the small fee to guarantee a spot in the tournament, and then not show up to play, which left some matches up to a toss of the coin as to which absent player would get credit for the win, Daulton was unlucky enough to not get one bye.
Daulton started the tourney with a 9-1 win over Bobby Renner, followed by a 9-6 win over James Myers. The six games that Myers won would be the most any player scored against Daulton. A 9-4 win over Jeff Beckley was followed by a 9-2 win over 1998 Tour Points leader Dee Adkins. Daulton then defeated Kirk Stevens 9-1 before notching back-to-back 9-5 wins over Sammy Monday and Jose Parica.
This set up the match for the hot seat where Daulton cruised to a 9-3 win over Stamper. Stamper moved to the one-loss side of the board where he eliminated Jose Parica by the score of 9-7 to set up the rematch with Daulton but Daulton was too much for Stamper as he cruised to a 9-4 win for the tournament.
Daulton collected $5,000 for first while Stamper settled for $4,000 for second. Parica and Jason Kirkwood filled out the top 4 spots.
