One of the 101 Activities at Coco Beach Island Resort is a Billiard Tournament. A few days back, an Eight-Ball Billiard Tournament was held at the Barracuda Bar. Seven guests participated in the tournament refereed by Barracuda Bartended and Billiard Shark Willy Caguete. The players were Danish nationals Hans, Peter, Tommy, Rasmus, Anders, Mads and Alex Bailey from Spain.

The tournament started at 9:00 in the evening where the first round was an elimination. After two hours of a very tight elimination game. Two cue artists Mads of Denmark and Alex from Spain advanced in the finals.
In the final round, the best of the 2 players must win twice to claim the title. Alex took the first game as he easily cleaned-up the table after Mads missed the number 4 ball. Then on the second game Mads fought back and successfully shot the eight ball in the corner pocket.

The third and final round was even more exciting. Mads had the chance to win the game when Alex missed the no. 7 ball. Then on his turn apparently he missed it too giving Alex the opportunity and luckily cleaned-up the table. Alex received a new billiard cue stick, a Coco t-shirt while Mads got Coco t-shirt and for the non winners a glass of rhum coke.
Congratulation Alex! Until the next Billiard Tournament.
