Piedrabuena second at USBA TOUR OPEN at Chris's Billiards, Chicago, IL, September 26-28, 2014
The Open Tournament at Chris's Billiards was a huge success as we expected a maximum of 28 players and got 33 players participating. With the players arranged into 5 groups of 7 players each (2 flights had a bye), instead of only taking the top 2 players from each flight (since one top player was seeded into each flight), tournament director Jim Shovak decided to take the best four 3rd-place finishers of each flight, making a total of 14 players advancing to the next round plus an auction and a lottery winner for a total of 16 players.
