Jason Egeln wins at Sandcastle Billiards’ C/D Tri-State event.
Jason went undefeated throughout the tournament. His tournament trail included wins over Raul Reyes 6 – 3; Lena Levoie 6 – 3; Kevin Early 6 – 3; Pho Tran 6 – 2; and Mike Aldenderfer, a newcomer from Williamsport, PA, 6 – 3 for the Hot Seat. The match with Jason left Mike patiently waiting for another crack at the Finals. In the mean time, Allen Wong, who suffered a first round lose to Mike Aldenderfer 6 – 4, won his next eight matches. Allen’s fatigue from his previous battles took their toll, and in a bid for the Finals, fell to Mike, 6 – 2. With Mike staring at a three hour ride home and Jason tired of the long wait, the two players decided to split the purse with Jason the winner.
