Ron Gabia wins his first Tri-State at Eastside Billiards’ A/D 9 Ball event.

Ron Gabia wins his first Tri-State at Eastside  Billiards’ A/D 9 Ball event.  Ron was in great form going undefeated.  His tournament trail included wins over 2011 Tri-State Invitational winner Paul Ravel 7 – 6; Carl Yusuf Khan 7 – 5; up and coming Ed Culhane 7 – 4; Joe Landi 7 – 0 and William Zarzour 8 – 6 for the Hot Seat. With the remaining players battle fatigued, the positions for 1st thru 3rd were decided by relative strength of the players and their standing through a mutual agreement to conclude the event. The ever threatening Dan Cintron placing 2nd with a 9/1  win/ loss record and William Zarzour, finishing 3rd, deserve recognittion for their solid performances.  Please provide a thank you to Sterling-Gaming, Ozone Billiards, Ron Tarr Cues, Kamui Tips, Phil Capelle, BlueBook Publishing, Human Kinetics for their sponsorship leading to this event.
