May 23, 2004, 7:47 PM

Tony Robles and Karen Corr won their respective divisions at the BCA Open 9-Ball Championships on May 22nd.

Robles went undefeated and beat Santos Sambajon 7-2 in the finals, which were taped for later showing on ESPN. Robles held a 4-0 lead before Sambajon was able to win a game and Sambajon finally "threw in the towel" at 6-2 after he scratched on the 8-ball.

Corr's victory came at the expense of Allison Fisher who had gone unbeaten all week. Corr bounced back from a loss to Julie Kelly and defeated Fisher 7-4 in the finals. The alternating break match was close early, as the players traded games until the eighth rack when Corr won on Fisher's break. Fisher came back to win the next rack on Corr's break, but Corr won the next two racks for the victory.

The win was Robles' first major tournament victory, while Corr has now won this title three consecutive years.
