Last But Not Least: Peach and Alcaide earn final spots in the IPT
Mar 20, 2006, 2:25 PM

At the fifth and final International Pool Tour qualification event in Weert, The Netherlands, David Alcaide of Spain and Daryl Peach of England nabbed the final two spots on the 150-player roster for the 2006 season.

After defeating Peach on Saturday night in a hill-hill nailbiter, Alcaide showed up Sunday morning determined. He met Goh Takami in the winners’ bracket final, and Japan’s “Rising Sun” wasn’t able to stop the Spaniard, who won the match, 10-5.

Peach suffered through a lengthy match against Germany’s Michael Schmidt before reaching the one-loss side final against Takami. It looked as if he were going to run six racks for the $5,000 bonus, but missed a tough cut on an early 2 ball when the score was 7-3. Peach was able to win that rack and only allowed Takami one more game before winning the last match, 10-4.
