Tony Vittle put a stop to Marvin Padrigo’s runaway win streak to win Masse’s NZ 9 Ball Championship. Tony peaked at the right time beating Joe Pologa 7-1, the talented KD Singh 9-3, and then taking the championship in a nail biting final 9-8. It would have been Marvin’s 15th straight win and his 3rd major tournament win in a row, but it seems like he has a boogie man. In the final Marvin was up 8-6 and had many opportunities to take the title but stumbled a the last hurdle. As for Tony, he just sat back and kept the pressure on by going frame for frame and punished Marvin’s every mistake. In the end Marvin missed a getable shot to gift the championship to Tony.
