BBSF Classic & U-19 8-Ball Tournaments in Belmopan

BELMOPAN, Thurs. May 30, 2019– The Belize Billiards Sport Federation (BBSF) held two grand tournaments in Belmopan at Mike’s Cue Club on May 25 and 26. Below are the results:

BBSF Classic (In memory of Angel “Chips Man” Vargas)

A total of 47 players from throughout the country participated in the single-man, race to 3, 8-ball Classic. The champ is Larry Lisbey of Belize City (prize: $1,200 + trophy), while Luis Valdez of Corozal (prize: $600.00 + trophy) was the sub-champ. Larry was undefeated going into the final, so Luis had to beat him twice to be the champ. It was a tall order, but Luis gave it an enormous effort, as he won Larry in the first set; but Larry was successful in the second set and was declared the champ. Ranking 3rd place was Nain Rosado (prize: $300.00), and 4th place was Johnny Betancourt (prize: $100.00).

U-19 8-Ball

A total of six players registered for this annual tournament. It was single-player, race to 3. Emerging as champ was Ailton Linarez (prize: $300.00 + trophy); sub-champ was Elvis Yam (prize: $200.00 + trophy); third was Immer Lima, who was the defending champ (prize: $100.00).

It was surely an exciting weekend of Billiards. The BBSF thanks sponsors: Gold – Mike’s Cue Club; Silver – Kuylen Gas Station, Triple R Trophies, ALG Reggae Warriors, Morales Transports, Hon. John Saldivar, The Trophy Depot, Belize Road Way Contruction; Bronze – Codds Drugstore.
