Dempsey Crowned Champ

Stephen Dempsey won the £50k Blackball table challenge in Carlisle last weekend.

As one of the fancied players in the field Dempsey came through and was the only player to win every match he played as there was a double elimination until the last 16 stage. 

He beat fellow Irishman Kristi Caulfield 10-2 in the quarter final, his closest match came next where he won a decider 10-9 v Aaron Davies.

In the final Dempsey faced the talented Scottish player Jordan Templeton beating him 10-6 to lift the trophy and pocket £12,000 first prize.

The tournament recieved high praise from all that attended and could possibly lead to Ross Mcinnes and Michaela Tabb starting up a new pool tour. 

Congratulations to Stephen Dempsey on a fantastic win.
