Peach Rounds out the IPTDaryl Peach became the 150th member of the International Pool Tour in Weert, The Netherlands, on Sunday, March 12. He had a long, uphill battle throughout the day, but in the end, he was one of the happiest men in the country.After losing a hill-hill nailbiter to David Alcaide of Spain, who was the winners’-side final winner, on Saturday night, Peach was faced with trudging through the one-loss side on Sunday. His first match was against Michael Schmidt, hailing from Germany. A long, laborious match ensued, with both players running multiple racks, but Peach triumphed 10-7.In the final match against Japan’s Goh Takami, Peach was faced with a 3-1 deficit but took advantage when Takami came up dry on his next break. Peach dished up and then ran five racks in a row, making the score 7-3. He was going for his sixth run-out, which would have been the first time for that to happen in the finals of an IPT qualifier, but he tried to play a tough shot on an early solid and rattled it. Takami couldn’t capitalize, and Peach made it 8-3 after a failed safety by his opponent. He missed his first shot of the next rack, though, and Takami cleared. When he missed a sharp cut down the rail in the following rack, Peach dished up to reach the hill. In the last rack, Peach missed his penultimate solid, but Takami only ran out to his last two before missing. Peach sank his final three balls, winning the match 10-4.
