The 14-year-old Barney simply outplayed his opponents to prove that he will be more than just a force to be reckoned with in the future.His first notable victim was points leader Wayne Bean, whom he defeated in the second round. Next came Brandon Shuff, who won the previous 8-ball event at First Break and who also has been making waves as a player to watch in recent times. Barney faced Doug Whiting in the winners’-bracket final after Whiting put tournament director Nick Prinsloo in the one-loss bracket. Whiting didn’t put up much of a fight and went down 5-2 to Barney on Sunday.
