Stop # 3 Jordan steps up to the plate in Tallahassee, Captures 10-Ball Title

2018 Florida State Open 10-Ball Championship

What a great event we just had March 3-4 at Zingales Billiard Room & Sports Bar in Tallahassee, FL. The two day event was chock full of close matches and great playing by some of the best players the region has to offer. Johnny Archer and Tony Chohan even stopped in to get a taste of the talent we see on tour regularly. 55 Players showed for the main event which was Live Streamed directly to our website and Facebook page. 31 Players opted into the 2nd chance event on Sunday. Zingales added $3500 to the main event and $500 added to the 2nd chance event. On Saturday before the start of the event, Florida Pool Tour awarded the first Ambassador Award to Michael Zingale and the rest of the family and staff. Handed to Michael was a very nice red plaque that read ‘In recognition for outstanding goodwill and service for all things billiards. Past, present, and future” Thank you to the Zingales family for being a key supporter of pool and events in Florida.
