Yu Ram Cha Takes her First KF Open

Rocky McElroy, Yu Ram Cha and Julio Aquino

Capone's Billiards Lounge, Spring Hill, FL was the host venue for the latest $1000 Added KF Cue Tour Open event. The field was full of  notable names including Donnie Mills, Ronnie Wiseman, Tony Crosby, James Roberts, Yu Ram Cha, Tracie Hines, Julio Aquino and Jason Richko just to mention a few.

The day kicked off with local player Bill Stoll scoring an upset sending Ronnie Wiseman to the one loss side 7-6. One of the matches of the day would see Tony Crosby defeat Yu Ram Cha 7-6 in a very high quality match.

Julio Aquino (tour point's leader) was doing his best to try and take his first KF event by capturing the hotseat with wins over Nicole Winters 7-0, room owner Rocky McElroy 7-3, Bill Delisle 7-2, Tony Crosby 7-2 and then he would get a bye into the hotseat as Donnie Mills would have to forfeit for family reasons.

On the one loss side Yu Ram Cha would go on a mission beating Bill Dunsmore 7-1, James Roberts 7-2, Wayne Catledge 7-5, Tracie Hines 7-2, a revenge match against Tony Crosby 7-5 and then a win over Ronnie Wiseman 7-3 to put her in the final.

The final would be a single race to 9. Cha would come out of the gates quick taking a 4-1 and   7-2 lead, Aquino would win one more rack but a dry break would be his last visit to the table with Yu Ram running the table and breaking and running the last rack to take her first KF Open Event win along with first place trophy and prize money of $635. So a big Congratulations goes out to our first Lady winner on tour, Yu Ram Cha.
