The Truth Prevails in Atlanta

Larry “The Truth” Nevel took no prisoners the weekend of August 29-30 at the Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour’s event, going unchallenged through to win. The double-feature event was hosted by Mr. Cues II in Atlanta, GA, and drew in 86 players competing for the $6,055 in prize money.

In the amateur division, Jeff Hooks began his journey to first place at the bottom of the bracket and worked his way through to the finals.
