Robles Rolls on Predator Tour
Jun 17, 2008, 12:23 PM

Robles notched his second win on the Predator Tour.
Over the Father's Day weekend, 50 players gathered at Master Billiards in Queens, N.Y., for the latest stop on the Predator 9-Ball Tour. Fittingly, Tony Robles, the father of the Predator Tour, prevailed after fighting back from the one-loss side.

Dropping an early-round match to Joey Kong, Robles strung together five wins to earn a spot in the final. After a hill-hill win against Eddie Abraham, Robles topped Mhet Vergara and Jorge Rodriguez. In the left-side final, he posted a surprisingly lopsided 9-1 victory over New York legend George San Souci.

After topping Robles, Kong continued to send opponents leftward. He topped San Souci for the hot-seat.

The single-set race-to-11 final was tight throughout, but Robles would edge Kong for the Father's Day win.
