 Stop #7: Moore goes undefeated, stopping loss-side challenge by Townsend to win Tiger SE Open stop
Stevie Moore
Stevie Moore successfully worked his way through a field of 27, on-hand for the Saturday, December 7 stop on the Tiger Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour, but not before being challenged by Scotty Townsend, who came from deep on the loss-side to meet him in the finals. The $1,000-added event was hosted by Game Land Billiards in Albany, GA, which added $235 to bring the top prize to $1,000.
Moore was among the final four winners, and faced Denny Singletary in one of the winners' side semifinals. Don Cossart met up with Stoney Stone in the other. Moore got into the hot seat match with a 9-5 victory over Singletary, as Cossart sent Stone over 9-7. Moore downed Cossart 9-5, claiming the hot seat.
On the loss side, Townsend was working his way back, defeating James Parr and tour director Tommy Kennedy to draw Singletary.
"Scotty was really playing well," said Kennedy. "The best I've seen him play in two years."
Stone, in the meantime, drew Jesse Middlebrooks, who'd gotten by Randy Jordan and Adam Towery. By identical 7-4 scores, Townsend and Stone eliminated Singletary and Middlebrooks, and squared off in the quarterfinals. Townsend then dropped Stone into fourth place 7-5, and completed his loss-side run with a 7-3 victory over Cossart in the semifinals.
It was, by this time, getting late. By mutual agreement, Townsend and Moore opted out of playing a final match, choosing to split the top two prizes, leaving Moore as the undefeated title winner.
Tour director Kennedy thanked Bo Nelson and the staff at Game Land Billiards for their hospitality and the added money. He also thanked sponsors Tiger Products, J. Pechauer Custom Cues, Mueller Recreational Products, Chris Nitti Custom Cues, Chris Hightower of Cue Man Billiards, David Adams of Byron, GA and Simonis Cloth.

 Stop #6: Kennedy wins Tiger SE Open 9-Ball stop, splits top prizes with Meglino
Tommy Kennedy
It was 3:30 in the morning when Tommy Kennedy, sitting in the hot seat, and Anthony Meglino opted out of a final match during the $500-added, November 30 stop on Kennedy's Tiger Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour, which drew 41 entrants to Cunningham's in Vero Beach, FL. As far as Kennedy was concerned, the default event title worked out just as well for him, because Meglino, he noted, coming off a nine-match, loss-side winning streak was shooting lights out as he got closer.
"He was shooting really well," said Kennedy, "so it did kind of work out for the best for me."
Kennedy had sent Meglino west in the second round, and Kennedy moved on, advancing, eventually to the winners' side final four, where he met up with Carlos Torres. Jim Sandaler, in the meantime, locked cues with Chris Gentile. A 7-4 win for Kennedy and a double hill win for Sandaler, put them into the hot seat match, where Kennedy prevailed 7-2.
With four matches behind him, Meglino defeated Devin Brown 6-1 and shut out Prescott Buckwold to draw Gentile, coming over from the winners' side semifinals. Torres drew Chris Daly, who'd gotten by Justin Hall 6-3 and Billy Burke 6-2.
Torres got successfully back on the winning track with a 6-4 victory over Daly, but Meglino handed Gentile his second straight loss, defeating him 6-1. Meglino advanced to the semifinals without lifting his cue, as Torres forfeited the quarterfinal match.
Meglino then eliminated Sandaler in the semifinals 6-3, which gave Kennedy, looking on, a glimpse of what he might be facing. They opted out of the final match, declaring Kennedy, in the hot seat, the event winner.
Kennedy thanked Chris Devila, owner of Cunningham's and his staff for their hospitality, as well as sponsors Tiger Products, J. Pechauer Custom Cues, Mueller Recreational Products, Chris Nitti Custom Cues, Chris Hightower of Cue Man Billiards, Daivd Adams of Byron, GA and Simonis Cloth.

 Stop #5: Kennedy defends Bob and Brad Martin Memorial title in Fort Myers
Tommy Kennedy successfully defended his title at the Eighth Annual Bob and Brad Martin Memorial Tournament, hosted by the Miscues Lounge in Fort Myers, FL, owned previously by Bob and Brad Martin, in whose name the tournament has been held. The tournament, held under the auspices of the Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour (Stop #5), was broken into amateur and Open divisions, with the $600-added Open event on Saturday, August 24, drawing 15 and the $400-added amateur event on Sunday, won by Jared Schlauch, drawing 26.
Kennedy defeated Anthony Meglino among the winners' side final four 9-3 and then defeated Chris Gentile 9-2 to get into the hot seat. Meglino came through two, loss-si matches to face Gentile in the semifinals and took an early 3-0 lead. Gentile, though, fought back to earn a second shot at Kennedy in the hot seat. Kennedy finished his undefeated run with an 11-5 victory.
In the amateur event, Schlauch and Eric Gouder faced each other twice. Schlauch won the battle for the hot seat, sending Gouder to a semifinal against Phil Davis, who had just defeated Jose Ybarra in the quarterfinals. Gouder defeated Davis and got his second chance against Schlauch. Schlauch completed his undefeated run to claim the event title.
 Stop #4: McGee comes back to take down Souvanthong on Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour stop
Tour director Tommy Kennedy had no idea who Jared McGee was until he faced him in the quarterfinals of the July 20-21 stop on Kennedy's Tiger Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour. Kennedy knows who he is now, because McGee, in the midst of a five-match, loss-side streak when they met, defeated Kennedy and went on to defeat hot seat occupant, Bucky Souvanthong, to claim the event title. The $1,000-added event drew 34 entrants to Pockets in Dothan, AL.
McGee and Kennedy were moved to the loss bracket in the same, winners' side final eight round; McGee, by Scotty Townsend and Kennedy, by Max Oliver. Townsend moved on to face Souvanthong, as Oliver drew Matt Bulfin. Souvanthong sent Townsend west 9-5, and in the battle for the hot seat, met Bulfin, who'd defeated Oliver 9-7. Souvanthong got into the hot seat 9-6 over Bulfin, and waited on McGee.
Townsend drew Kennedy, who'd defeated Stoney Stone, and then, Scotty Townsend's son, Michael; thus denying father (Scotty) and son (Michael) an opportunity to compete. Oliver had the misfortune of picking up the man he'd sent west, one match before - McGee, who'd gotten by Josh Hillard and Denny Singletary.
Kennedy followed his defeat of the Townsend son, by defeating the Townsend father 9-7. He was introduced, in the quarterfinals, to McGee, who'd eliminated Oliver 9-2. Kennedy learned all he needed to know about McGee, when the younger man allowed him only a single rack in the quarterfinals.
McGee moved on and defeated Bulfin in the semifinals 9-5. In the single, race-to-11 final, Souvanthong put up a fight, but McGee edged ahead to win it by two, 11-9, and claim the event title.

 Stop #3: Kennedy goes undefeated on his Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour
Tommy Kennedy brushed aside a near miss in the hot seat match to claim the hot seat from John Gore, and then, in the finals defeat him a second time to capture the April 6 event on his own Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour. The $500-added event drew 23 entrants to The Corner Pocket in Green Cove Springs, FL
As Kennedy was busy sending Jesse Engel to the west bracket 7-4, among the winners' side final four, Gore had his hands full with his first of three double hill matches. He prevailed in the first against David Grossman to face Kennedy, but dropped the second, leaving Kennedy in the hot seat.
Engel moved over to pick up Mark Coats, who'd gotten by Jason Clark and defeated Bobby Garza 7-5. Grossman drew Trevor Moore, who'd been sent to the loss side by Engel, and defeated Larry Warf and Tomo Ito 7-4. Coats and Moore handed Engel and Grossman their second straight loss, both by 7-4, and moved on to face each other in the quarterfinals.
Moore then downed Coats by the same 7-4 score, and locked up in a double hill battle against Gore (his third in a row) in the semifinals. Gore dropped the final 9-ball for a second shot at Kennedy in a single, extended race-to-11 final. No double hill struggle for Gore this time, as Kennedy took the single match 11-5 to claim the event title.
Kennedy thanked room owners, Laurie and David Rigsby, and their staff for their hospitality, as well as sponsors Tiger, Mueller Products and Simonis Cloth.

 Stop #2: Meglino and Kennedy split top prizes on Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour
Afterwards, Tommy Kennedy admitted that had he played a final match against Anthony Meglino, he would likely have been defeated. Meglino had defeated him in the opening round of the February 23 stop on the Tiger SE Open 9-Ball Tour, and though Kennedy had fought his way back through eight matches on the loss side to meet him again in the finals, both agreed that it had grown a little too late to test Kennedy's loss-side streak or Meglino's undefeated run. They opted out of a final match and split the top two prizes. The $500-added event had drawn 34 entrants to Cunningham's Pool and Darts in Vero Beach, FL.
As Kennedy toiled away on the loss-side, Meglino advanced among the winners' side final four to match up against Devin Brown. Curtis Kelley and Jason Sheerman met in the other winners' side semifinal. Meglino got into the hot seat match with a 7-3 win, while Kelley survived a double hill battle versus Sheerman. Kelley got into his second straight double hill match, vying for the hot seat, but Meglino held on to win it.
It was Sheerman who picked up the streaking Kennedy, who'd won his fourth and fifth match on the loss side, against Mark Coats (a 7-5 struggle, which, according to Kennedy, came within a ball of double hill), and Sam Kantar 7-2. Brown drew Adam Wheeler, who'd gotten by Raul Alvarez 7-2 and John DiToro 7-3. Kennedy dropped Sheerman 7-5, and in the quarterfinals, met up with Wheeler, who'd ended Brown's day 7-3.
Kennedy then defeated Wheeler 7-3, and was afforded the opportunity for a re-match against Meglino, by taking the semifinal match against Kelley 7-4. Kennedy and Meglino took stock of the situation at that point, and decided against a final match. Undefeated in the hot seat, Meglino was declared the event winner.
As tour director, Kennedy thanked Cunningham's owner, Chris Davila, for his support of the tour, as well as sponsors Tiger Cues, Mueller Recreational Products, Simonis Cloth, Cliff Manning, Andy Gilbert Custom Cues, Robert Harris, and Marshall, for assisting him with the conduct of the tour stop. The tour is scheduled for a hiatus, while Kennedy prepares for his role as a member of the World Professional Billiard League, whose inaugural season is scheduled for late March/early April. Kennedy, along with Scott Frost and Manny Chau, will be a member of the league's Phoenix Fire team.

 Stop #1: Rentz goes undefeated to win Tiger SE Open 9-Ball stop in Dothan, AL
Rod Rentz stopped a seven-match, loss-side winning streak by Denny Singletary to claim the Tiger Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour's event title on the weekend of February 16-17. The $1,000-added event drew 32 entrants to Pockets Billiards in Dothan, AL.
It was Rentz and Stoney Stone battling for the hot seat. Rentz had just sent Tony Watson to the loss side 9-3, as Stone was busy with a 9-7 win over J.R. Rossman. Rentz then defeated Stone 9-4 and waited in the hot seat for Singletary.
With two notches already on his loss-side belt, Singletary defeated Michael Townsend and Joe Davis to meet up with Watson. Rossman drew tour director Tommy Kennedy, who'd sent Singletary west and gotten by Mark Shimelman 9-3 and Dewayne Logan 9-6. A 9-4 win by Singletary over Watson, and 9-2 win by Kennedy over Rossman, set up a quarterfinal re-match between Kennedy and Singletary.
Singletary won that quarterfinal re-match 9-5, and then, dropped Stone into third place 9-7. In a single race to 11, though, Rentz gave up only two racks to end Singletary's loss-side streak, complete his undefeated run and claim the event title.
