Men’s Pool and Billiards Club
The Men’s Pool and Billiards Club played a partners 9-ball tournament last week after the beer bust. Names were drawn for partners and eight teams were formed in an alternate shot double-elimination format.
Nine balls are racked with the 9-ball in the middle and the 1-ball in front. Players shoot at the lowest numbered ball on the table, and the game is won when the 9 is made on a legal shot.
Bobby Stringer and Bill Clawson went through undefeated, beating the third place team of Rod Ellis and Dave Silva when Bill made a 3-9 combination in the side pocket.
That advanced Bill and Bobby to the finals, where they faced Ren Villenueva and Boon Buntrakulsur, the combo they beat in an earlier round.
Bill and Bobby needed to win only one game, and they did it quickly when Bill Clawson made the 9 on the break.
