In this evenings play, the guys played right next to each other; Sullivan against former Mosconi Cup Champion with Team USA, Oscar Dominguez; while Marco was up against former Junior World 9 Ball Champion, Sanjin Pehlivanovic.
A great day for the team at the Predator Cues World 10 Ball Championships here in Las Vegas!
Sullivan looked really good against the more experienced Dominguez and showed how he’s perfectly capabable of mixing it with the biggest names in pool. He said he’s feeling really calm when he’s playing and it shows. While he went down 8-5, he put up a great fight and the result should have been closer. The time he has spent with his coaches Wayne Carey and Tony de Fontenay has certainly paid off!
On the table next door Marco put up a good gap at the start over the former Junior World 9 Ball Champ Pehlivanovic and didn’t let him get close throughout the match. The end result was a 8-4 victory. Again, he’s playing well and feeling good although he doesn’t want to have to fight back from the brink like he did this morning! One thing he took out of that was that he knows he’s got the mental strength and toughness that you’ve got to have to win big matches like that.
Now to tomorrow! At 5 pm local time (noon NZT) it’s Marco versus the current World Pool Masters Tournament Champion, Alex Kazakis. This is going to be a big match with the winner going on to face Sullivan for a spot in the last 16!!
