I will not be excepting any new orders until I get caught up thank you for all the support!
Below is two articles from the Poison Pool Tour, I get lucky every once in a while!
Last month (April), Trevor Moore won a stop on the Poison Tour (Amateur) by winning a single-rack shootout,
necessitated when his loss-side opponent in the finals (Jason Richko) won their first meeting in those finals. On the
weekend of May 18-19, Moore did it again, this time against Raymond Linares. The $1,000-added Amateur event,
run in conjunction with an Open/Pro event (on-going as this report was being filed) drew 62 entrants to
Cunningham Pool & Darts in Vero Beach, FL.
From among the winners' side final four, with Linares at work on the six-game, loss-side winning streak that would
take him to the finals, Moore met up with Sam Kantar, who'd sent Linares over. Carlos Torres and Cal McGann
squared off in the other winners' side semifinal. Moore downed Kantar 6-1, and Torres sent McGann west 6-4.
Moore got into the hot seat with a 6-1 victory over Torres and waited on the return of Linares.
In the meantime, Linares was working on his streak. He got by Chip Dickerson 5-3 and shut out Chris Gentile to pick
up McGann. Kantar drew Felix Luna, who'd survived a double hill match against Jason Sheerman and defeated
Marcus Shenandoah 5-3.
Linares earned his quarterfinal rematch against Kantar with a double hill win over McGann, as Kantar was busy
ending Luna's day 5-3. Linares took advantage of that re-match, defeating Kantar 5-1, and moving on to defeat
Torres in the semifinals, 5-1.
Linares chalked up his third double hill win in the opener of the finals against Moore. Moore, though, for the second
time in a little over a month, took the single rack shootout to claim the event title.
Crosby takes Open/Pro event on his Poison Tour; Moore claims Amateur title
There was some crossover talent on display at the Florida-based Poison Tour stop on the weekend of April 13-14;
Trevor Moore and Jason Richko, to be specific. They took first and second, respectively, in the $1,000-added
Amateur event that drew 54 entrants to Capone's Billiards Lounge in Spring Hill, FL, and ended up fourth (Moore)
and tied for fifth (Richko) in the $1,000-added Open/Pro event, won by tour director Tony Crosby, that drew 21.
In the Amateur event, Moore and Richko met up first among the winners' side final four, as OB Cirilo and Pierre
Palmieri squared off in the other winners' side semifinal. Richko took the first of their two sets (and single, deciding
game) 7-4 and in the hot seat match, faced Palmieri, who'd downed Cirilo 7-2. Richko won his last match defeating
Palmieri 7-3 to sit in the hot seat.
Moore moved over and picked up Jason Bowen, who'd gotten by Norm Pincine and Jimmy Dean, both 5-3. Cerilo
drew John Wing, who'd defeated Brian Miller 5-3 and Mark Wathen 5-1. Moore survived a double hill struggle
against Bowen, and in the quarterfinals, met up with Cerilo, who'd eliminated Wing 5-3.
Moore moved on with a 5-3 win over Cerilo in the quarterfinals and a 5-2 victory over Palmieri in the semifinals. He
and Richko battled to double hill in the opening set, before Moore prevailed to force a single deciding game to
determine the winner. Moore took the single game to claim the amateur title.
In the Open/Pro event, Moore was among the winners' side final four, where he faced Donnie Mills. Tony Crosby, in
the meantime, squared off against his eventual finals opponent, James Roberts. Mills sent Moore west 7-3 and in the
battle for the hot seat, faced Crosby, who'd survived a double hill match against Roberts. Crosby moved into the hot
seat with a 7-4 victory over Mills..
Moore moved over to pick up Robert Batson, who'd gotten by Justin Hall and Gary Gilsinan, both 6-4. Roberts
picked up Richko, who'd defeated John DiToro 6-1 and Michael Lear 6-4.
Roberts downed Richko 6-4, as Moore was busy eliminating Batson 6-3. Roberts then ended Moore's run with a 6-4
win in the quarterfinals.
Roberts moved on, defeating Mills in the semifinals 6-2, for a shot at Crosby in the hot seat. Crosby, though, spoiled
Roberts' bid, defeating him 7-5 in the only set necessary.
Crosby expressed his thanks to Capone's Billiards and Poison Cues for helping make this event happen. The next stop
on the Poison Tour will be May 18th - 19th at Cunningham's Billiards in Vero Beach, Florida.
