Mike Fuller rebounded from a late loss at the January 15-16 installment of the Great Southern Billiard Tour to snap off the event in the finals against the undefeated Danny Mastermaker.

Fuller first collided with Mastermaker in the final four of the winners’ side, where Mastermaker dealt him a convincing 9-3 loss and sent him to the one-loss side of the chart. Advancing to the hot seat to meet Mastermaker was Mike Staubes, who whitewashed Chris Vollmar 9-0. Staubes put up a fight, but still Mastermaker overcame him easily to take the hot seat 9-5.

Once on the west side of the chart, Vollmar foundered, and though he and Mac Herrell had a close match, Vollmar ended up in fifth place 9-7. An even closer match saw Sam Monday tie with Vollmar, as he came out on the wrong end of a double-hill match with Fuller that saw Fuller move on 11-10.

Now on a serious roll, Fuller made quick work of Herrell 11-2, sending him home in fourth place and advancing to the semifinals to face Staubes. It was yet another hill-hill match for Fuller as he prevailed 11-8 to move on to the double-elimination finals and have his rematch with Mastermaker. Fuller fought to earn his revenge against the player who had sent him to the west side—he won the first set 11-5, and in the second set he only allowed Mastermaker two racks before winning the final set 11-2 to take his first Great Southern Billiard Tour title.

Matches for this event will be available at the Inside POOL Youtube Channel later this week.
