Iris Ranola Wins WPBA BCA Qualifier!

Iris Ranola Graphic

Congratulations to my good friend, Iris Ranola, who won the Jacoby Cues Great Lakes Tour, 8th and final stop of the 07-08 season at Billiards on Main in Galesburg, Illinois! Iris Ranola began her tournament with a stunning win over the tour’s season points winner, Liz Lovely (7-4). The Philippine Billiards Team member also did one incredible feat – actually two - she shut out her next two opponents, i.e., Donna Ferguson and Tina Hess!

The Filipino pool player outdid Rachel Byrkett in the winner side final with a 7-4 score – putting her in the finals. Iris Ranola met Rachel Byrkett once for one exciting finals! Iris Ranola trounced the billiard player from Iowa with a 9-5 win – securing the qualifier and the $375 first prize money!

Again, congratulations Iris! A hat tip to you my friend! What a way to mark your debut in the United States! That was one awesome performance! Your win somehow reminded me of Efren Bata Reyes' debut in the United States at Reds. And I kid you not!
