Page pulls ahead to win FBT Mini-Tour event at Grovers
West Palm Beach, FL (June 9, 2012) – Jennifer Page and Debbie Barkley made it through the round robin format to the finals of the second FBT Mini-Tour event of 2012, held at Grover’s Billiards in West Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday, June 9, 2012. In this handicapped event, the players played each player a set of 3 games, one 8-ball and two 9-ball.
Robin Boggs and Sue Roberts played strong, as did Alicia DeAbreau and Susan Martin. The games were played on bar boxes, and the scores were very close. Page and Barkley ended up with 11 games each. The final match was a race to five, with the winner of the lag picking the race or the game, 8-ball or 9-ball. The match started with 8-ball, and Barkley took the lead 2-1. However, Page came back and took the lead in 9-ball. But for Barkley’s scratch on the 8-ball it likely would have been a hill-hill match, but Page won the next game and the match. In addition to cash, Page wins a paid entry to the Flamingo Billiard Tour stop at Slate Billiards in Boynton Beach, Florida on June 23, 2012.
Many thanks to Grover’s room owner Jason Jenkins for supporting the Flamingo Billiards Mini-Tour, and thanks to all the players who came out to play.
1st place: Jennifer Page
2nd Place: Debbie Barkley
