WCCC Wednesday Night at The Brook, presented by Route 1 Vapors, was our Thanksgiving Eve Blowout, and what we blew out was our record for players one a Wednesday night, shattering the previous record of 69 when 82 hardy souls showed up to do battle. In a finals shortened to a single game due to time constraints, Matty Iannello & Jeremy Louisos was able to pull away to a 24-10 victory over Tyler Page & Kevin Lowry to claim the biggest Wednesday night blind draw prize we’ve ever had on offer, a smokin’ $420.
Iannello & Louisos jumped out to leads of 5-0 & 7-1 before a 5 spot by Lowry in the 4th round closed the gap tp 7-6. Iannello & Louisos each posted deuces to make it 10-6, and then Page grabbed a 4 to even things at 10-10 after 7 rounds, setting up what looked to be a barnburner of a finish. Three straight scoring rounds by Iannello & Louisos made it 17-10. however, and after a wash Louisos laid a 7 pointer on Lowry to end it, but not before Lowry had a chance at an airmail drag to save his team. The bag went long, ending the championship after a fitting 12 rounds for the 24-10 final.
Phil Jackson and WCCC debutant Christina Zeletsky turned an early 4-3 deficit into a commanding 18-3 lead over Seng Sao and Chris Cole en route to a 24-8 win to claim the final podium spot.
Kevin Lowry posted a stellar 8.69 PPR to easily lead the way on his way to the silver medal, while Craig Dutton was behind in 8.14 and Wayne McCarthy was 3rd with an 8.05. Lowry had 9 fourbaggers to pace the field as well.
Brian Johnson got the call for airmail with a total pot of $3404 on offer, at $851 a bag. The first bag went in and then three went long to roll over $2553 to next week.
