Ryan Stone captured his first U.S. Amateur Open title by winning 7 straight matches on the one-loss side. He double dipped that player that dealt him his first loss, Germany's Dominic Jentsch, in the finals.

The Open 8-Ball, Women's 8-Ball and Seniors 8-Ball divisions of the Ozone Billiards U.S. Amateur Open at Bankshot Billiards in Jacksonville, FL concluded Thursday.

In the Seniors' 8-Ball Open hot seat match featured David Ross and Tom Lapointe, where David Ross bested Lapointe and sent him on to play Bill Stoll in the finals of the one-loss side. Stoll dispatched Lapointe after a tough match and proceeded into the finals where he dealt David Ross a pair of losses for the championship.

In the Womens' 8-Ball Open, the hot seat match featured Samm Diep of Colorado and Monica Riley Jacksonville, FL where Riley handed Diep her passport to the west side of the brackets. There Diep encountered the straight-shooting Ashea (pronounced Asia) Erdahl. Diep proved to be too much for Erdhal as Diep capitalized on a few unforced errors by Erdahl and crossed the finish line first. It was not all roses for Diep though as she ran into an eager Monica Riley in the finals. Riley turned up the heat and once again served Diep her second loss to win the Womens' title.

This time it was Stone winning both sets, 4-3, to capture his first Open Amateur 8-Ball title.
