Bankroll Management: Moore Beats Filipinos in Derby City Banks Event
Jan 9, 2007, 9:32 AM

Atlanta, Ga. native Stevie Moore rose above two of the Philippines' top players to become the Derby City Classic Bank Pool winner.

The final three players were Moore, Efren Reyes and Rodolfo Luat with Reyes the only player who still had a buy-back option. While Banks may not be Reyes' best game, his lengthy Derby City resume made him the favorite.

In the next round, Luat drew the bye which led to Reyes playing Moore. Moore took complete control of that match and beat Reyes, 3-0.

Reyes used his buy-back option and drew the bye in the next round to set up a Moore vs. Luat match. The match went to hill-hill with Luat missing the game ball three times before Moore was able to win, 3-2.

The final match between Reyes and Moore also went to hill-hill and the final game came down to 2 balls with Reyes needing two and Moore needing one. Moore fired in a two-rail bank as the game winner.

The One-pocket event is underway with a field of over 400 players.
