Sandcastle Billiards hosted the Mezz ABCD 10 Ball
State Championships in Edison NJ. On Saturday August
18th & Sunday August 19th. Strong field came out
to play, the field included players like: Caroline Pao,
Gerard Soriano, Alex Gurevich, Richard Ng, Max Watanabe,
Keith Guenzel, Keith Jawahir and Bruce Bowers to name
I like to Thank Ed Liddawi and his wonderful staff
for hosting the event for hosting the event. Leading
the top half of the bracket was Caroline Pao with wins
over Lou Guynee 7-5, Bruce Bowers 7-1, Mike Johnson
7-3 and Alex Gurevich 7-6. Leading the bottom half of
the bracket was Gerard Soriano with wins over David
Loveland 7-3, Jerry Dunne 7-3 and Luis Carrasco 7-5.
Playing for the hot seat was Caroline Pao Vs Gerard
Soriano this was a one sided match with Soriano taking
control from the start and never looking back as he
won the match 7-1 sending Pao to the one lost side.
Waiting for Caroline Pao on the one lost side was Alex
Gurevich a rematch from earlier that day. Once again
it was Caroline Pao coming out on top as she won the
match 7-4 to get to the finals.
In the finals it was Caroline Pao Vs Gerard Soriano
this is a true double elimination event Pao would have
to beat Soriano twice to win tournament. It only took
Soriano one set to become the 2018 Mezz ABCD 10 Ball
State Champion as he won 7-4. Congratulations to Gerard
Soriano and all the players that came out to play.
I would like to thank all the players that came out
to play and all our sponsors.
