Play Pool. Have Fun. M.O.B. on!

Canales is 480 & Under Champ!

We had 37 players come to the Rum Runner Lounge in Las Vegas this past weekend for the 2023 M.O.B. 480 & Under Handicapped 9-Ball Championship and great matches ensued. We had exciting hill hill thrillers, 5-0 blowouts and some firsts.

Julian Johnson and John Schwartze had great tournaments finishing in 7th place. Congratulations to Adam “Scott Scott” Scott for going undefeated into day two. Adam finished tied for 5th, along with William Crawford, in his best personal finish and first time cashing in a calcutta. Well played “Scott Scott”! Ruairi Byrne continued his strong play following up his Puddle Jumper win with a good 4th place finish. Frank Curcio had played strong throughout the tournament finishing 3rd and only losing to the champion and runner up.

Jessie Coloma won matches 5-2 vs Tony Wong, 5-3 vs Dustin Day, then losing to Frank Curcio who he got his revenge on in the loser’s bracket. Jessie continued his strong play beating Esteban Barrera 5-1John Schwartze 5-2, Adam Scott 5-1, Ruairi Byrne 5-2, Frank Curcio 5-4 to get to the finals against Stefan Canales.

Stefan Canales was on a mission! He beat Tim Harris 5-1, Diane Meisner 5-1, Blaine Simpson 5-2, Adam Scott 5-1and Frank Curcio 5-3 to advance to the hotseat match. In the true double elimination finals Jessie came on FIRE winning the first set vs Stefan 5-0. the final set was a true battle. They exchanged games back and forth until it went hill, hill with Stefan coming out on top to take home the crown!
