Alcano Wins Championship Cloth Pro Classic 9-Ball
Alcano lost his first match and won 8 in a row to become the champion in Louisiana
New Iberia, Louisiana- Ronnie “The Volcano” Alcano just needed a little time to erupt. He arrived fresh off the plane and took a loss off the bat, but then was unstoppable. In eight consecutive matches, he was unthreatened .
The Championship Cloth 5th Annual Pro Classic events are a pro 9-Ball and 10-Ball event during October 16th-20th, 2012. The events take place side by side to the Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open all hosted by Emerald Billiards and produced by Dragon Promotions. The event is co-sponsored by Predator Cues, Poison Cues, Aramith Balls, Pool & Billiard Magazine and sanctioned as an ABP International Rankings Points Tournament.
Robb Saez was the victim in the finals, thought Saez had been burning them up on his side of the charts. Saez had a tight 9-8 win over Adam Smith when Smith faltered on the 7ball case game, but Saez burned through his opponents after including a 9-3 over Wang Can and 9-2 over Charlie Williams in the hot seat finals.
Alcano dusted through Bustamante, Israel Rota, Mike Davis, Wang Can, Ralph Eckert, Charlie WiIlliams.
In the finals, Saez and Alcano both kept it close playing fast and furious. The score was tied at 5-5, when Saez was running out and shot an easy dead 5ball to 7ball combo. Ronnie called a loss of turn because Saez did not call the ball. This turned the tide of the match and Saez was not able to regain control of the match. Alcano cruised through to a 11-7 victory.
The most happiest person of the win might be Shane Van Boening who sponsored Alcano in this event. Alcano actually defeated Shane to knock him out. But its likely he was forgiven now with Ronnie’s final victory.
