Viking Columbus Regional Championship underway

Larry Nevel will try to add the 9-ball crown to his one pocket crown

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour Regional Championship is underway at Cornfed Red's in Columbus Ohio with a field of 110 players.

All of the top talent from the one-pocket event are still in attendance, as well as top guns like Santos Sambajon and Ronnie Wiseman. There are also a few more ladies joining Sarah Rousey in the field.

Rousey's luck in the draw has not gotten any better going from one pocket to 9-ball. She drew Corey Deuel in the first round of the one pocket event and drew Shawn Putnam in the first round of the 9-ball event.

Larry Nevel and Kid Delicious Danny Basavich are both close together towards the bottom of the brackets. They are one win away from facing off in the second round.

Complete brackets are online and will be updated all weekend.
