There was a bit of a ‘prodigal son’ tale that played out over this past weekend (Nov. 11) on the PremierBilliards.com’s Q City 9-Ball Tour. The $500-added event that drew 22 entrants to The Clubhouse in Lynchburg, VA was won (with an *) by Christian Fuller, who advanced to the hot seat but opted out of a final match and split the top two prizes with Greg Taylor. Fuller was (is) the ‘prodigal son’ of the story, winning his first recorded cash payout in a tournament. Those aware of the mid-Atlantic pool community over the years may recognize the last name, because Christian Fuller’s Dad, Michael, was among the region’s top competitors ‘back in the day,’ roughly between ’03 to ’12. The elder Fuller won 16 (recorded) events in those 10 years, many of them on a combination of the Jacoby Custom Cues Carolina and Viking Tours. He competed in the US Open in each of his active 10 years, finishing 5th in his last (’12). In his best recorded earnings year, Fuller cashed in 18 events, winning three, runner-up in two and finishing 5th in that year’s Derby City Classic.
