Steve Roy wins Rolling Rock Challenge
After seven weeks of qualifiers Snookers Sports Billiards Bar & Grill of Providence RI held the finals of the $5000.00 Rolling Rock Challenge on August 28th and 29th. The only way to play in the finals was to finish in one of the top three positions in a qualifier. Players were divided into 3 classes “A”, “B”, and “C”. Players ranked in the “A” class raced to 8, “B” to 7 and “C” to 6. There were separate qualifiers for each class so you only had to compete against equal skill levels to qualify. Once 64 players qualified (21 for each division and one random draw from non winning entrants) they held the finals doing a random draw for all 64. Each player in the finals raced to the level as used in the qualifiers (6,7 or 8).
The beautiful country of Aruba, known for its blue waters and cool breezes was hit by a South Dakota wind by the name of Shane Van Boening. Van Boening took down the 1st Annual Ultimate 10 Ball Championship with a talented field of 45 players. The Ultimate 10-Ball was the brainchild of entrepreneur and now promoter Badi Nazhat. Nazhat’s goal was to rekindle the flame in Central America billiards with his Aruba event. To ensure security and faith of the players, Nazhat guaranteed the money for this event by putting his own money in an escrow account held by a upstanding financial firm.
