Viking National Championship Underway

The Viking Cue National Championship is underway with 110 players at Palace Billiards in Villa Park, IL.

Round one is underway with one major upset as Larry Nevel dropped his opening round match to Eric Lundgren. Top seeds Ronnie Wiseman, John Schmidt, Niels Feijen and Shawn Putnam all advanced relatively untested. Troy Frank and Shannon Daulton advanced with first round byes, while defending champion Earl Strickland had yet to play this match at the time of this report.

We have complete brackets from the event, but will be without the camera of Diana Hoppe due to unforseen circumstances.
