A Pine Grove resident is $10,000 richer after a recent visit to Sin City.  But his good fortune didn’t happen in the casino. Eugene Melocheck won the 2023 APA 9-Ball Shootout Pool Championship in Las Vegas.

Melocheck was among nearly 6,000 players throughout North America who attempted to qualify for the American Poolplayers Association’s (APA) 9-Ball Shootout.  He was one of only 690 who advanced to the national finals at the Westgate Las Vegas.

Melocheck competed in the White Tier of the 9-Ball Shootout and received a cash and prize package worth $10,000. The 9-Ball Shootout featured four individual tiers all based on skill level.

The finals match was live-streamed and can be viewed on YouTube.
