Tournament winner Kevin Thibeault

Saturday May 31st was the second of 8 scheduled events for the summer series. A nearly full field of 14 showed up to take part, and once again there was a first ever tournament winner. Kevin Thibeault, who was forced to put down the cue for a few years due to a nagging back injury, showed he has regained his playing form this weekend.
It has only been about 6 months since Thibeault, who is ranked a B, has been able to play with some consistency but slowly and surely his game came back. All his hard work came to a head this weekend as he cruised through the winner side the entire day. At the end Thibeault had two notable wins against winner and multiple finalist since the debut of the series last summer, Jacques Sauve, who is ranked AAA.
The next tournament will be held on June 14. The entry is $40 and is open to the first 16 paid. This tournament is for B players through to AAA, no Pro/Semi-pro’s. There are only 6 tournaments left to obtain the 4 needed to qualify for the end of the season tournament. It will have added money and potentially a Calcutta.
