Alcaide Joins the IPTThe newest member on the International Pool Tour just became David Alcaide of Spain. The 27-year-old defeated Japan’s Goh Takami 10-5 in the winners’-side final match, being held at House of Billiards in Weert, The Netherlands.After squeaking by in a late-night hill-hill battle with Brit Daryl Peach, Alcaide arrived this morning looking fresh and relaxed. After his match, he said through an interpreter that he was exhausted last night, but his match started off well and as it was going on, he felt more and more confident.When the score seesawed to 3 apiece, Alcaide broke and ran out the next two for a two-game lead. They split the next two racks after both came up empty on their breaks, but then a mistake by Takami put Alcaide up 7-4. The Spanish champ then broke and ran two in a row for the hill but hooked himself on the 8 ball in the next game. He kicked at and hit the 8, but that rack went to Takami, making it 9-5. Takami came up empty on his following break, and Alcaide cleared the table for his 10-5 victory. He thanked his sponsor, Gorina Cloth, effusively and also his friends for their support.
