Congratulations Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour 32nd Stop Winner Jamie Baraks!!

The 32nd stop on the 2009-2010 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour (produced by the American CueSports Alliance – ACS) was hosted on February 27 in Decatur, IL, at Starship Billiards. The $500 added event featured 52 players in a double-elimination 9-ball format on 8-foot tables.

Dustin Wilgus (Champaign, IL) took the undefeated route to the hot seat, including an A-side semifinals win over Sergio Perez (Chicago, IL) 8-6 and the A-side finals win over Mike Dunklin (Normal, IL) 8-6. Dunklin won his A-side semifinals match over Chris Austin (Sailor Springs, IL) 8-7 prior to his loss to Wilgus, and Dunklin then awaited his opponent in the B-side finals.

In the B-side round of eight, Jamie Baraks (Milan, IL) and Rick Halls (Danville, IL) eliminated Chris Winschief (Paris, IL) 8-4 and Ike Runnels (Kankakee, IL) 8-6 respectively at 7th place. The B-side quarterfinals featured Baraks and Halls continuing by ousting Sergio Perez 8-5 and Chris Austin 8-7 respectively at 5th place. In the B-side semifinals, Jamie Baraks edged Rick Halls at 4th place by an 8-7 margin. Baraks maintained his momentum in the B-side finals by defeating Mike Dunklin 8-5. Versus undefeated Dustin Wilgus in the tourney finals, Jamie Baraks displayed conviction in winning two sets for the title – 8-2 and 8-6!

By virtue of Mike Durbin being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 8-Ball singles entry into the 2010 ACS Nationals in Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS.

Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour sponsors include: Pool Cue Guru, Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric, Nick Varner Signature Cases and Billiard Gods Productions. All entries in the Tour are also entered into a drawing in January for a $1,000 Lucasi Hybrid Cue.
