Miguel LaBoy wins Tri-State at Steinway Cafe & Billiards. Miguel’s tournament trail included wins over Ramon Feliciano 8 – 6; Tony Liang 7 – 4; Fernando Paulino 7 – 6; before suffering a loss from Amir Rashed Uddin 7 – 6. In another cliff hanger, Amir defeated Ambi Estevez 7 – 6 for the Hot Seat. During this time Miguel was busy on the loss side, defeating Jimmy Acosta 7 – 3 and Bob Toomey before facing Ambi for the finals. Miguel won 9 – 8 against Ambi to once again face Amir. During the Finals, Amir took an early lead and at 5 – 2, it looked bad for Miguel. However, Amir made some errors, which was just enough to get back in the match. Tied at 6 – 6, Miguel got the opportunity to take control of the match and won the next 3 games for the match. Recognition belongs to Ambi Estevez for a solid 3rd place finish. The next Tri-State event will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2015 at Clifton Billiards in Clifton, N.J.
