Shane Van Boening Wins US Open 10 Ball Championships
July 25, 2016 12:40
As I kind of predicted last week. Shane Van Boening lifted the 2016 US Open 10-Ball Championships at weekend, his second career US Open 10-Ball title.
In the finals Van Boening defeated one of the most in-form players currently plying his trade out in the USA. Rodney Morris, who currently tops the USA Mosconi Cup ranking list.
The win actually propels Van Boening into the top 5 of the US Mosconi Cup list and with plenty of events to go he will be one of the contenders to get an automatic spot come December.
Van Boening started the final day over on the one-loss side after having lost to Morris the night before in the hotseat match 10-7.
Van Boening took on Canadian champion John Morra in the semi-final match and won 10-6 to set up the rematch with Rodney Morris.
It was only a single match final with a race to 13 racks deciding the winner. This time around Van Boening got the better of Morris by a scoreline of 13-8 to give him the victory and another major title.
