Pickar Wins Oklahoma All American Tour Stop

The second stop on the 2013-2014 Pure X Cues All American Tour stop – presented by the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) – was hosted at Sandite Billiards in Sand Springs, OK – on Saturday, October 12.  The $500-added 8-ball tourney on 7-foot Valley bar boxes drew 28 players. 
The tourney finals featured undefeated Eric Pickar (Claremore, OK) versus once-defeated Steve Page (Cleveland, OK).  Earlier, Pickar dominated Vernon Armstrong 5-0, Bob Rutherford 5-0, Sonny Tiger 5-0 and J.R. Spaulding 5-3 to gain the hot seat. Page outpointed Steve Ballew 5-4, Corry Scoggins 5-0 and Keith Costigan 5-4, before falling short against J.R. Spaulding 4-5 in the A-side semifinals.  Page recovered on the B-side by eliminating Mike List 5-2, Sonny Tiger and J.R. Spaulding in the B-side finals.  In the tourney finals, Eric Pickar continued his domination to put off Steve Page in the first set for the title!
By virtue of Eric Pickar also being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2013 Pure X ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.  The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Pure X 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 Pure X All American Tour. Sponsorship opportunities and tour stop openings are still available for the 2013/2014 All American Tour by contacting the ACS.
The Tour moves to Davenport, IA on Saturday, November 2, with a $500 added 8-Ball Tourney at Sharky’s Billiards (contact Terry Stevens at 563-359-7225).  Further information, entry details and schedules for the 2013/2014 Pure X Cues All American Tour are available at
