|Winner Jacques Sauvé|
The third edition of the Rack-M-Up Summer Series took place this past Satuday May 30th. There was only 10 players in attendance as the nice weather and prior obligation kept several players from competiting. However most of the top local players were in attendance and would be no easy feat to make it to the final.
The day ended early for me as I won my first match then went on to lose to Jacques Sauvé and Jeff Flemming 7-3. Not exactly the follow up performance I was looking for after finishing 2nd in the previous tournmant, but those are the woes of an inconsitent amateur.
The two players who made it through the winners side bracket, were part owner Amanda Collins (4) and Justin "Killer" Miller(7). Collins who races to 4 came out firing earning herself a 3-0 lead. However Miller who's nickname is not for nothing settled in and began chipping away at the lead and eventually went on to win 7-3.
Sauvé who lost earlier to Miller 7-6 came back on the losers side racking up wins agains Morris Hearn and Jeff Flemming. In the losers side final he met up with Collins and ended her day in 3rd position. In the final Sauvé was looking for revenge and tied at 5-5 an oppurtunity arose. Miller missed a routine 8 ball which Sauvé took full advantage of wining that frame and going on to break and run the next to take down this tournament.
