McCormick wins TFT 6th Annual Cues for the Cure!
Stuart, FL (Oct. 20, 2014) Fifty-one women converged at Amys Billiards in Stuart, Florida, for the Tiger Florida Tours $1,000-added 6th Annual Cues for Cureâ breast cancer awareness fundraiser on October 18th. At the end of the day, Crystal McCormick went undefeated to win the TFT last tournament of the year.
This event was a modified double elimination format, playing down to eight players on each side. The eight players on the losers side redrew into the winners side for a single elimination match. McCormack was focused all day in the short races to five, defeating Colleen Russell 5-1, Cassidy Mulligan 5-4, Nicolle Payne 5-2 and taking the win from Chris Fields 5-2. Fields defeated Cheryl Perez 5-3, Amy Poulter 5-1, and April Wallen 5-3, before losing to McCormick. All of the players who made the final board made the money.
April Wallens third place finish was just enough to earn the TFT 2014 Regional Tour Champion title, bypassing McCormick by 20 points. Jeannie Seaver, last years RT Champion finished the year in third place.
