Congratulations to Jason Klatt for winning the 2014 Memphis Open 10-ball event. Jason was put on the B-side by none other than Justin Bergman for the hotseat match. As fate would have it, they faced one another yet again this time for all the cheese.
This was a true double elimination, race to 17 10-ball event. Jason had to and proceeded to double dip Justin Bergman to claim his victory in the late/early (depending on your perspective) hours of the morning.
Congratulations to Justin Bergman for winning the A-side of the brackets. Unfortunately for him the "Hotseat" proved to be the "Iceseat". In my opinion, Justin in the finals was not the same Justin we watched compete all week long. None the less, he put up an admirable fight against Jason and forced Jason to earn his victory.
Congratulations also go to Johnny Archer for taking third place after facing Jason Klatt. What more can you say about this guy, he's a legend in the sport and certainly no chump on the table. Jason was a tough competitor for Johnny and gave Johnny all he could handle.
Fatigue and exhaustion certainly had to be a factor for all competitors at this stage of the event. This event started on Wednesday with the One Pocket event and kept on "Trucking" all the way up until Sunday night/Monday morning nearing 5am CST.
A special thanks to Highpockets in Memphis (Click here). This establishment and it's owner who obviously love the sport and its people, provided a first class experience for everyone involved. A huge thanks to Highpockets for making this event a huge success and we all look forward to next years Memphis Open.
