Deuel Braves Tough Field in Atlanta
Apr 9, 2008, 1:39 PM

Deuel took down his biggest payday of the year in dominant fashion.
The Seminole Pro Tour stopped at Atlanta's Mr. Cues II poolroom last weekend, and 48 of the best American players gathered for a shot at $8,000 in added money.

Although the field was a tad smaller than usual, top names like Johnny Archer, Gabe Owen and Corey Deuel headlined yet another talented group at a Seminole event.

From the start, Deuel was the man to beat. He didn't let an opponent past three games as he eased into the hot-seat match, where Jonathan Pinegar was waiting.

Pinegar only had one tough match early on, outlasted Jason Roberts in his first match, 7-5. He was scheduled to play Mitch Yarborough on Sunday morning, but Yarborough had to forfeit due to ill health.

In the hot-seat match, Deuel was tested early, but pulled away from Pinegar late for a 8-5 victory.

On the left side, Larry Nevel was amending for a second-round loss. He strung together seven wins, including a pair of hill-hillers against Jason Richko and Jeremy Jones. He then sent Pinegar into third place with an 8-5 victory in the left-side final.

Both Deuel and Nevel started out a bit tenative in the race-to-9 final. Deuel, however, would again pull away, polishing off his undefeated run with 9-6 win.
