Promoter hands World Champs Bustamante & Hohmann First Losses

Defending Champion and promoter Charlie Williams showing that he can still do it all
New Iberia, Louisiana- Event promoter, producer, and sometimes pro player Charlie Williams somehow managed to hand two world champs a huge loss in his Louisiana event. 3x World Champion Thorsten Hohmann and World Champion Francisco Bustamante were victims of Williams hot hand. The Championship Cloth Pro Classic events are a pro 9-Ball and 10-Ball event during October 16th-20th, 2012. The events take place side by side to the Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open all hosted by Emerald Billiards and produced by Dragon Promotions. The event is co- sponsored by Predator Cues, Poison Cues, and Aramith Balls.
Williams jumped out to a 6-0 lead against Hohmann. Thorsten was able to come back and make a match of it, but Williams played superbly and finished off the final opening left by Hohmann to win 9-6. Coincidentally, Hohmann defeated Williams just 3 days ago 9-6 at the Johnny Archer Classic, which was also produced by Williams company Dragon Promotions.
Bustamante ran over Cliff Joyner 9-1 his first match and then defeated Ralph Eckert 9-4, and Sylver Ochoa 9-3 with no contests. Williams jumped to a 2-0 lead, and while Bustamante came back with 3 games in a row to take the lead back, Charlie Williams took control of the match with 6 straight games and won 9-4.
“I’m playing good but feel like I could miss anything”, laughed Williams who admitted he hasnt played much nor had time to warm up during the events.
Only two players remain undefeated. Robb Saez will play Williams for the hot seat.
The events are being streamed live on and sponsored by Ozone Billiards and Predator Cues.
Fans can come live to watch at Emerald Billiards (337) 364-9922. 2511 West Old Spanish Trail New Iberia, LA 70560
Championship Cloth is a division of D & R Industries, Inc. which began in 1963 in a small apartment in Chicago, Illinois. Through the years, D & R Industries, Inc. went through many changes and expanded into a variety of recreation-oriented businesses, but really found its niche within the billiard industry. After distributing billiard fabrics for more than 25 years, it was clear to D & R that there was a need for affordable high quality billiard fabrics. Thus, a team consisting of engineers, textile experts and old time billiard people worked together to develop what is now known as the “Championship Line” of billiard fabrics. Championship’s expert team of engineers and experts worked for over five years to develop the finest billiard cushion rubber in the industry. A decade later, Championship’s cushion rubber can already be found on the tables of many of today’s major billiard table manufacturers. More recently Championship acquired major billiard supplier MBS Group, which has substantially expanded Championship further. D & R has now been a proud staple of the billiard industry for almost 50 years providing the finest billiard fabrics, cushion rubber and component parts. Today Championship now sells more billiard fabric than all of its major competitors combined. Please visit
