Iceman Stays Cool in Atlanta

1

Mike Immonen beat a solid field at the United States Professional Poolplayers Association’s fourth annual Atlanta Open, held at Murphy’s Brass Rail in Athens, Ga., Oct. 12-16.

Immonen came up the one-loss side after losing to Earl Strickland on Saturday. The Iceman beat Luc Salvas, Mike Davis and Troy Frank to secure a spot in the finals.

Waiting in the hotseat was Strickland, who was not as successful against the chilly Finn the second time around. Immonen blasted his way to a lopsided victory, 11-3. Immonen earned $10,00 for first place and Strickland took home $5,000. Frank and Davis came in third and fourth, respectively. Salvas and Tony Robles tied for fifth place.
