Pool - The 22nd US Bar Table Championships
16th - 22nd February 2015 / Grand Sierra Hotel & Casino, Reno, Nevada, USA
IGNACIO RULES SUPREME
Jeffrey Ignacio of the Philippines is the 2015 USBTC All Around Champion after fantastic displays throughout the week in Reno.
In the ever popular 8 ball division, which contained 241 entries, the Filipino star came through nine matches unscathed, culminating in a 5-4 win over American Mosconi Cup star Justin Bergman in the championship match.
He also dominated the 10 ball section, once again with his scorecard throughout the event unblemished. On route he beat Shane Van Boening, and young prospect Skyler Woodward in the hot seat and final matches.
Van Boening did however take the 9 ball title, denying fellow South Dakota cueist Danny Olsen at the last.
All three disciplines also carried vital Mosconi Cup USA Team ranking points.
