Jesus Borjas ACS Top Gun!

Category : Player News

For the second year in a row, Jesus Borjas proved he was the TOP GUN in the Palm Beach ACS League! It wasn’t easy, though. The competition was tough. John Sungail, who played strong sending Al Cashwell and Ken Lee west, also sent Borjas west in the third round, making it to the hot seat match against Dennis Searing. Searing got to the hot-seat match winning over Jon Callahan, Jerry Sotelo and Dean Allen. The Searing – Sungail matchup sent Sungail to the one-loss side to play Borjas again.

Borjas had to fight his way back to the hot-seat with wins over Jerry Sotelo and Scott Nodell, both double-hill matches. Those wins put Borjas back against Sungail in a revenge match for the spot in the finals. With three break and runs in the first four games, the match-deciding game was a true test of strategy. Both players had balls tied up, forcing Sungail and Borjas to play safety after safety waiting for the other one to make a mistake. Unfortunately, Sungail fouled when his safety ended up tapping the 8-ball first, giving Borjas ball in hand with one ball left and a spot in the finals.

The final match with Searing against Borjas, in a 5-4 race, found the rolls favoring Borjas as Searing came up short on shape and made a few uncharacteristic misses on the 8-ball. In the end, Borjas took the match, Top Gun title, and cash for the second year in a row.

A few surprises along the way, top league player and one of the favorites to win, Sam Kantar, left the tournament early, losing to Dean Allen and Jon Kellum.  Jon Callahan also got knocked out early, losing to Dennis Searing and Ken Lee.

Results:

1st    Jesus Borjas    $250
2d    Dennis Searing   $125
3d    John Sungail    $75
4th  Scott Nodell  $50
