Trailing 17 to 8, Pedro started his run.Â When it was over, he led 24 to 17.Â Hugo seemed dazed for a few innings as Pedro built his lead but then Pedro faltered.Â The last three billiards were elusive, and Hugo staged a come back.Â At 34 to 33, Hugo missed a long-short-long shot but left Pedro with all three balls in a line.Â After pondering the shot for nearly a minute, Pedro played an up-down shot (long, short, long) for the win. Finishing third was Miguel Torres with a record of 8-2 and an average of 1.281.Â More to come later this week.
