Francisco Bustamante Wins 9-Bank
Day 4 of the 15th Derby City Classic would see the 9-Ball Banks come down to three great players. Shannon Murphy with the only re-buy, Justin Hall winner of the 2012 Southern Classic 9-Ball Banks and Hall of Famer Francisco Bustamante. The first semi-final would be Murphy playing Bustamante. Bustamante would win to give Murphy his first loss in the tournament. The next round would have Murphy playing Hall to see who would meet Bustamante in the finals. On this night Hall would eliminate Murphy in third place to move to the finals.
Bustamante came out firing to take an early lead 2 to 0 and get on the hill. But Hall was not done taking game 3. In the fourth rack Hill had the misfortune of scratching and owing a ball. But he made up the difference to get ahead three balls to two. A miss by Hall gave Bustamante an opening and he took control to close out the match 3 to 1 and claim the 2013 9-Ball Banks Championship.

Tuesday Update from the 15th DCC
Tuesday was the Banks and One Pocket Hall of Fame induction dinner. The inductees for this year were Shannon “The Cannon” Daulton and Larry Price. Larry Price was one of the great players we lost in the past year. He was inducted into the Banks HOF having won the DCC banks in 2002 and 2008.
Shannon “The Cannon” Daulton is the first person to be inducted into both the Banks and One Pocket HOF on the same ballot. Shannon joins only four other players that are in both Hall of Fames, Nick Varner, “Cornbread Red” Burge, Leonard “Bugs” Rucker and Eddie Taylor.
Day two of the Derby City Classic would see the 9-Ball Banks move into the fifth round caring over into Sunday. The biggest surprise was Shane VanBoening getting Knocked Out after only two rounds. Shane suffered a first round loss to Shannon Murphy 3-0. Then with his buy back he draws another great player Jeremy Jones who knocked him out 3-1. This will almost eliminate Shane from three-peteing as The All Around Champion, having won it in 2011 and 2012.
The Ring Game is six players with $1000 buy in and 10 balls on the table. Each player has 20 chips worth $50 each. In the first three racks each ball is worth $50, then increases in the next two racks to $100 and goes up $100 every 2 racks until one player has all the chips. There is a draw for shooting order at each increase. The six players for 2013 were, Shannon Daulton, John Brumback, Brian Groce, Shannon Murphy, Justin Hall and John Morra. After six racks and the ball value at $200 there were two players remaining. John Morra, 2012 Derby City 9-Ball Banks Champion, playing Justin Hall, 2012 Southern Classic 9-Ball Banks Champion. Going into the 8th rack the ball value increased to $300 and the players were close to even in chips. But after some great play by both players Justin Hall was holding all the chips and the $6000.
