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.
