ACS Presents Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour Results from Legends Sports Bar

The third stop on the 2010-2011 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) moved to Clinton, Iowa, on Saturday, October 9, at Legends Sports Bar.  The $500 added event featured forty-one players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.  Jesse Bowman (E. Moline, IL), rated a “7” on a regional handicap system used, took down the A-side, completing his undefeated trek via wins over Scott Hargens [6] (Cedar Rapids, IA) in the semifinals 7-3 and Cory Youngblut [4] (Iowa City, IA) in the finals 7-1.  Youngblut had earlier vanquished Will Kohl [5] (Dewitt, IA) 4-4 in the semifinals just prior to his loss to Bowman.

On the B-side Anthony Garcia [6] (Cedar Rapids, IA) and Mike Rohner [4] (Dubuque, IA) eliminated John Gorsch [4] (Cedar Rapids, IA) 6-1 and John Sprague [4] (Albany, IL) 4-3 respectively at 7th place,  In turn in the next round Garcia won again by ousting Will Kohl 6-2, while Rohner was whitewashed by Scott Hargens 6-0.  Garcia then knocked out Hargens at 4th place on the hill – 6-5, and Garcia’s run continued to the tourney finals when he bested Cory Youngblut at 3rd place by a 6-0 margin.  The tournament finals between Jesse Bowman and Anthony Garcia went only one set, but it was a hill-hill set, as Bowman [7] skimmed by Garcia [6] 7-5 for the title!!
