On July 6th-7th, 2019, Tour title sponsor, Poison by Predator Cues, sponsors Cyclop Pool Balls, APA of North Harris County, Vapor Fiend, OutsvilleBilliards, Southern Streaming, and venue, Big Tyme Billiards, facilitated a record-breaking event for the Poison Lone Star Tour. This inaugural bar table tournament, held at Big Tyme Billiards in Spring, Texas, garnered one hundred and fifty-one players, including forty Gulf Coast Tour women, and paid out over $12,000 in prize money. This was the largest crowd of players ever assembled, since the Tour’s 2009 inception. The production drew notable, “open only” players, such as Tommy Sanders, Justin Espinosa, Ernesto Bayaua, Alex Calderone, Andy Jethwa, John Weeks, and Doug Young, and featured a two-day, live stream, produced by Mike Fabacher of Southern Streaming.The Tour would like to thank room owners Billy Sharp, Deborah Sharp, Mark Avery, and Jim Henry, for hosting the most successful Tour stop to date. Big Tyme not only accommodated nearly 200 people, but provided the best equipment, along with an attentive staff, which made for a very enjoyable, tournament-going experience. Next month, August 3rd-4th, the Tour converges on Skinny Bob’s Billiards, 300 Hester’s Crossing, Round Rock, Texas, 78681. The Tour will return to Big Tyme Billiards for its final event, October 12th-13th.
