2008 Tour Stop 4

AWBT Qualifier Kolby’s Korner Pocket $500 AddedJuly 19 – 20Presented by J. Pechauer Custom Cues

Twenty-five women played in the AWBT’s 4th stop at Kolby’s Korner
Pocket on July 19 – 20! This was a $500 added, WPBA Qualifier, presented
by J. Pechauer Custom Cues! The qualifier was for a paid spot in the
Carolina Classic to be held September 10 – 14th in North Carolina!

Sunday started off with the first 2 matches on the A side being:
Nicole Keeney vs. Kathleen Lawless and Samm Diep vs. Michelle Abernathy.
Nicole and Samm won their matches and both advanced on to the hot seat
match. Nicole won that match 7 to 4 and claimed the hot seat!

 Meanwhile, the following matches started to determine 7/8th place:
Susan (Madhatter) Mello vs. Nina Tagley and Liz Bernreuter and Trinh Lu.
Liz and Nina won their matches. Nina went on to play Michelle
Abernathy, and Liz went on to play Kathleen Lawless for 5/6th place.
Kathleen and Nina won their matches and met up next to play for 4th
place. Nina came out victorious and went on to play Samm in the first
semi final match. Nina won the match and went on to play Nicole Keeney
for the final!

Nicole had already won the WPBA Qualifier spot going into the final,
so it was the money and pride being played for at this point. The final
match started with Nicole winning the lag. Since this was a true double
elimination format, Nina would have to beat Nicole in 2 races to 7. In a
matter of just a few minutes Nina was ahead 3 to 1. Nina dominated the
match, and won the first set 7 to 3 and won the 2nd set 7 to 3.

Congratulations to Nicole for 2nd place and the WPBA Qualifier Spot!
Good luck! We’ll be watching for you at the Carolina Classic!
Congratulations to home-town girl Nina Tagley for winning the tournament
and $300!

Nine women came back on Sunday to play in the free second chance
tournament! Susan Williams won the hot seat. Congratulations to Terri
Johnson-McCauley for 2nd place and $30 in prize money and
congratulations to Susan Williams for 1st place and $60 in prize money!

We also held a raffle for a beautiful J. Pechauer Custom Cue valued
at $520! The winner was very-last-minute-ticket-buyer Jim Louria!!
Congratulations Jim! Thanks to everyone for buying tickets! In all, we
raised $282 for the AWBT points fund! Just a reminder, we need help
selling raffle tickets! The AWBT is currently holding a contest in which
whoever sells the most raffle tickets throughout the year will win
their very own J. Pechauer Cue at the end of the year! If interested in
selling tickets, please contact Dawn or Kristie!

A big huge thanks goes out to Jimmy, Ryan and everyone at Kolby’s for
the wonderful weekend! We love this place! The tables are always in
perfect playing condition and their food is awesome!

We hope to see you all at our next stop, which will be August 30 and
31st at Pockets in Tucson, and as always, presented by J. Pechauer
