This months tourney was another great one! Full field of 32 players! This months champion is Hassan Hosein from Temple,Tx. Hassan was playing flawless pool in the final race to 9. He matched up with our defending champion Carl Ray from Waco who once again fought back from the one loss side for a shot at Hassan in the finals.Hassan’s fire was too much for Carl Ray to extinguish. Hassan finished out the match at 9-2 for the title. To get there Hassan defeated local favorite Carl Pheninger 7-5, Ricardo Espinoza from Killeen 7-3, Frank Cherry from Houston 7-4, and Another top pick Charlie Bennett 7-5, and finally local Rody Andres for the hot seat 7-1.

Carl Ray started out taking down Killeen superstar and ACS/BCA league operator Kenn Bogart 7-0, then took out Curtis Smith from Ft Worth 7-3, Carl Ray was then derailed by tourney favorite Charlie Bennett 7-4, moving on to a re-match of last months finals against Benny Scott in the one loss side Carl Ray won 5-2, then defeated Eric Diaz 5-1, Kenny Stalker 5-2, and finally Rody Andres 5-1 for a shot at Hassan in the finals.
