Out of the 176 players who battled through three long days of competition at Steinway Billiards in Astoria, NY, the one to become the 5th Annual George “Ginky” SanSouci Memorial Amateur 9-Ball Champion would be Predator Pro/Am Tour and Tri-State Tour player Rhys Chen. Chen, who is originally from Ocho Rios, Jamaica and now lives is Nanuet, NY, has been a dedicated student of the game for seventeen years, and this marks his biggest career achievement as an amateur pool player.
