The thirty-ninth stop on the 2009-2010 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour
The $500 added event featured a 30-player field in a double-elimination 8-ball format in races to 3/ Masters to 4. Trey Jankowski (Port Charlotte, FL) had the hottest hand on this weekend, as he concluded his march to the hot seat by defeating Tony Groza (Port St. Lucie, FL) in the A-side finals. With eight players remaining, Justin Kovalsky (Palm City, FL) and Jeff Hughes (West Palm Beach, FL) ended the day at 7th place for Jon Callahan (West Palm Beach, FL) and Jason Jenkins (West Palm Beach, FL) respectively. Jerry Sotelo (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) then joined Doug Tittle (Port St. Lucie, FL) in respectively ousting Kovalsky and Hughes at 5th place. Jerry Sotelo kept up his hot streak to eliminate Doug Tittle at 4th place and Tony Groza at 3rd place. The finals were one race to 5, and undefeated Trey Jankowski cooled off Sotelo quickly by a 5-1 margin for the title!
(L-R): Jerry Sotelo (2nd), Willy Peat (owner) and Trey Jankowski (1st)
