Cuemakers International 9 Ball Championship 2013 Results! - 04-25-2013, 11:02 AM

Cuemakers International 9-Ball Championship 2013

Some of the finest cuemakers from all over the USA and Canada met in Edison, New Jersey at the Super Billiards Expo for the 2013 Cuemakers International 9-Ball Championship. The players field was filled with cuemakers from both the American Cuemakers Association and the International Cuemakers Association as well as some independent cuemakers. The tournament was played in a true single elimination format. The top half of the bracket saw Justin Hightower of Hightower Custom Cues make his way through a tough field to the finals with wins over cuemakers Richard Chudy, Brian Diveney and Tom Reid. His opponent in the finals was Virginia cuemaker Larry Smith of Smitty Cues. Larry had a tough route to the finals also with wins over Dennis Dieckman, Jon Minteer, and John Rocker. There had been many very close matches in this alternate break format tournament, but when it was all over Justin Hightower took home the title of the International 9-Ball Champion of Cuemakers 2013 with a convincing seven to two win in the finals.
The event was the second annual Cuemakers International 9-Ball Championship and was held as a charity benefit for the Galilean Childrens Home in Liberty, Kentucky. The Galilean Childrens Home has helped thousands of special needs children for a few decades now. All entry fees and cash donations went directly to help the Childrens Home. Some cuemakers paid much more than the $50 donation/entry fee and others who were unable to play came by and donated their entry fee just to help the Children. When all was said and done the cuemakers tournament raised over a $1500 for the Childrens Home.
Next years event will be held at the New Jersey Convention Center during the Super Billiards Expo March 13th -15th 2014. A special word of appreciation needs to be given to all the event sponsors: True Heart Billiard Cues and the International Cuemakers association for donating the booth space to hold the event and the award plaques, The American Cue Makers Association for their generous donation to the Childrens home, Mad Man Handcrafted Tips for donating tip samples to all the players, Prather Custom Cue Parts for donating gift certificates, Dennis Dieckman and Cue Man Billiard Products for donating the table rental fees and product prizes for the cuemakers. And thanks most of all to the cuemakers for their generous donations and participation. Our cuemaking industry indeed has some generous quality individuals representing it.
