IPT Qualifier C Action ContinuesA long day of 8-ball action is nearing its end at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, CA. Chock-full of international and local hopefuls, this 74-player field has endured a grueling schedule, which tournament director Deno Andrews has held to firmly.There were 30 banked 8 balls at $1,000 a pop, with Canada’s Eric Hjorliefson claiming 3 for his own. This bonus was discontinued after several rounds because of “deal-making.” Nevertheless, there is still plenty of action going on, with Cliff Joyner and Eric Durbin entering a two-man, winner-takes-all, high entry fee one-pocket tournament. Reigning world 8-ball and 9-ball champion Chia-Ching Wu, the 16-year-old from Taiwan, met Jeff Beckley of San Diego in the winners’ side and kept him in his chair. Wu won the first four games and then broke and ran out the final six, exhibiting a monster break. He earned $500 for making the 8 ball on the break and $5,000 for breaking and running six consecutive racks.
