April 17 marked another strong tournament showing at Stinger’s Sports Bar & Grill. 15 players entered the $5 tournament to try to claim the 9-ball championship.
The winner, Ken Gouso walked away with $140 without losing a game. Coming in second, Ricky
Tyrell just missed the win, losing only to Gouso, and leaving with $70 in tournament winnings.
Todd Rowitz rounded out the top three, after battling through the loser’s bracket to take home $40.
The tournament was standard 9-ball, with a one-and-two under handicap set.
Tournament Director Jimmy Brewer said all of the players were putting on some of the best pool he’d seen.
“I played, but I always get knocked out early. These guys are really good,” he said.
