This past long weekend the Quebec Federation held their Provincial Championships at Le Skratch, Laval. All divisions C-Pro were all well attended and contested as this was one of the biggest weekends of the year for Quebec Pool outside Le Classique De Appalaches.
Being that last weekend was Thanksgiving and family being a priority I was unable to attend the entire event. However I was fortunate enough to arrive Monday morning and watch the end of most of the tournaments. Outside of the Professional tournament which boasted Quebec's top players such as Luc Salvas, Danny Hewitt and more, the story was Jean Vallaincourt.
Vallaincourt is a AA ranked player from Gatineau Quebec, who stunned many by finishing runner up in both the AA and AAA tournaments . This type of dominance in two different divisions is very rare to see. As I was rapping my head around what Vallaincourt had accomplished I walked over to the draw sheets and noticed Semi-Pro Fred Lapointe was on route to a similar feat.

Guy Simard from Billard Quebec, with sponsorship from Canada Billiard was able to put on a very nice stream. If you are interested in seeing the matches you can go to his Facebook page . For full results on all the divisions please refer to www.webillard.com.
