Putnam Takes DMIRO Stop

By Mike Andrews:

After two weeks of exciting pool, the trip to Florida's Tournaments was capped off at Ultimate Billiards, in Fort Pierce, Florida. Where the likes of Shawn Putnam, Charlie Bryant, Rob Saez, and a group of Amateurs gathered to try and take down this $1,000 Added 1 day event. This event was unlike other DMIRO events, it was a single bracket, and was randomly drawn. First round Rob Saez drew Charlie Bryant and sent the Hillbilly to the 1 loss side after and exciting Hill Hill match. First round Han Berber also sent Shawn Putnam to the 1 loss side, after another hill hill 1st round match. Shawn defeated Jason Sheerman 7-6, Doug Young 7-1, and Charlie Bryant 7-5 to face Han Berber who was defeated by Rob Saez for the hot seat. Han was defeated 7-3, and Putnam and Saez played a 1 race to 13, to determine the winner. Off the bat Shawn was down 3 racks, and took 1 to make it 3-1, then they exchanged racks making it 7-5 Shawn, who then decided to take 5 in a row making it 10-7 Putnam. Shawn Putnam then took control of the match and Saez was not able to hold Putnam off, and Saez was defeated 13-8. Team DMIRO would like to thank Bill and his crew at Ultimate Billiards for hosting this event. Also the sponsors, Tiger Products, McDermott Cues, OB Cues, Delta 13 Racks, Hammond Custom Cues, Zinzola Custom Cues, Donnelly Custom Cues, Diekman Cue Builder and all of our supporting friends and fans.
