This past weekend was the 2015 state 9-ball championship for Missouri, held at Billiards of Springfield.  This is an annual event and draws quite an array of top quality players based in Missouri.  Only people with state IDs are eligible to play, which keeps it from being overtaken by road players.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend to compete as I was out of town on a work trip in New York (blog post about that later).  But, here’s the info and winners:

First place: Steve Boucher
Second place: Mike Banks Jr.
Third Place: Nick Evans
Fourth Place: Darrent Everett

The next big state tournament has been announced and it’s the State BARBOX 9-Ball Championship, held at Teachers on the Diamonds.  Info for that tournament be found here:
