Shuffett wins Bank Shot Invitational
Youth was served at Louisville’s Bank Shot Billiards on Jan 5, 2009 as 14 year old superstar-to-be, Landon Shuffett took the $1000 first prize in the invitational nine ball event. As always, promoter extraordinaire Truman Hogue, filled his 32 player field a week before the opening break shot. He also tweaked the format and raced to 6 on both sides with alternating breaks. Those changes plus Bank Shots’ pre-pro cut Diamond pockets figured to produce some upsets, but no one was complaining when their $50 entry gave them a shot at the $2100 ($500 of it added) prize fund.
