The sixth stop on the Jacoby Cues Great Lakes Tour was held on February 11th & 12th at Clicks Billiards in Houston, Texas.
The Slick Willie’s Family Pool Tour
This tournament welcomed players from around the West Texas, including the #20 player in the WPBA, Janet Smith. Smith, who had won the last event at Slick Willie’s Family Pool in December, made it to the winner-side final before being challenged; there she would fall to friend and Fort Worth native Joan Beatty by a score of 7-6. Beatty made her way to the hot seat with victories over Beatriz Wix 7-2, Jody Fall 7-5, and Brandy Snyder 7-4. Smith had dispatched her first three opponents, Baby Ramos 7-3, Gail Johnson 7-2, and Trish Jardin 7-1. After falling to Beatty, Smith bounced back with a semi-final win over JD Jenkins 7-6 to secure a spot in the finals. There her steady play earned her a 9-5 title victory, leaving Joan Beatty with second place and the qualifier to the WPBA Great Lakes Classic.
