Last Chance to Qualify for the Mezz West State Tour! 

This is it, Folks!

The Mezz West State Tour has staged the final destination of its inaugural season for 231+ registered competitors, who are attracting broad attention and writing the new history for cue-sports in America. Modesto, California, found in the heart of California’s northern Central Valley will probably see its largest billiards event in 10 years. Hosted by BreakTime Billiards at 304 McHenry Avenue, Modesto, CA 95354,  this 10-ball competition will be the final, ‘Top Gun’ qualifier played on 11, fully tuned 9 foot Diamond ‘pro-cut’ pool tables at 4-1/4″ pockets. The sports bar vibe at the 10,000 square foot venue comes with additional Diamond bar tables, huge 6 x 8 foot screens and, 11 taps of beer and some tasty bar food.

When asked about the Mezz West State Tour, BreakTime Billiards owner, Joe Gonzalez stated, “I’m thrilled to be hosting this event for Oscar and Desiree and to be a part of this great tour. Apart from the major tournaments in the country, the Mezz West State Tour has the potential to be very successful for the sport and I look forward to hosting more events in the following season as well.”

The Last Stand for ‘Top Gun’ Hopefuls 

Everything depends on performance and attendance for those who currently threaten the current ‘Top 32′ names on the rankings list!

The Mezz West State Tour rankings will determine ‘who’ gets to play the Top Gun event in March of this year. With a prize fund that has grown to approximately, $7,000 thus far and open to 32 players, a ‘stand-by list’ will also be generated with the final rankings announcement, so that if any top 32 players cannot attend Top Gun, players in the next ranking position will qualify.

Watch Mezz West State Tour Matches on YouTube!

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 2.36.17 PMIn fact, we already know that Efren Reyes, ranked #28 is unable to qualify because he did not play enough events and Danny Gohkul, ranked #31 still needs one more event to qualify. This is good news and possibly bad for players like Melissa Herndon #33 and Anthony Ortega #34 who, in waiting for the final rankings announcement, would surely slip back in rankings after Modesto if they do not attend or play poorly. Likewise, we can think of almost 25 players who have full potential to steal a ranking position from the deep such as, Mark Whitehead #35, Art Garcia #36, Deo Alpajora #56, Chris Robinson #61 and many others. With such talent on the tour and a chance to win big, this stop becomes an absolute must for tour members.

This final stop should produce some great matches. Be ready to see everything from desperation, despair and glorious excitement as pool players stage their final assaults to earn a ‘Top Gun’ spot!

If the TOP GUN were today, who would qualify?

Raffles and Top Prizes! 

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 4.05.34 PMThe Mezz West State Tour has had a regular tradition of raffling Mezz Cues and Cases at almost every stop on the tour in addition to a cash prize to the top finishing female/s. Along the way, MZWST also picked up the interest of Allen Hopkins, who has graciously sanctioned the #1 ranked player on MZWST to receive a free entry to the 2015 Allen Hopkins ‘Professional 10 Ball Event’ held annually at the Super Billiards Expo.

The Mezz West State Tour was held in gorgeous La Mesa, California at its premier room, On Cue Billiards. The Nooris family welcomed 88 players including none other than “The Magician” himself, Mr. Efren Reyes. It was quite a treat for both, players and spectators to watch and interact with the legend himself during the two day event.

The top half of the bracket was packed with talent as it contained not only Rodrigo Geronimo, Ramin Bakhtiari, Vilmos Foldes, Johnny Kang, James Cabal, Dan Wallace, Dave Gorham, Rodney Wynn and Victor Castro but also Efren Reyes. Foldes and Reyes met up in the final 16 of the winner side in a TV table face off. Foldes fought hard, but was out matched by Reyes with a score of 9-4. Reyes’ bracket got no easier, as Rodrigo Geronimo was waiting for him following his 9-3 victory over James Cabal. This Filipino match up went back and forth to the bitter end with Rodrigo pulling away a 9-7 victory and sending the Magician to the losers side. This win secured Geronimo’s spot in the final 4 of the winners side where he would defeat Victor Castro, who had tough wins over Mark Whitehead, Ray Pajarillo and Dave Gorham. Geronimo would go on to defeat Castro 9-6 to find himself waiting to battle it out for the hot seat.

The bottom half of the bracket was no cake walk either as Oscar Dominguez, Attila Bezdan, Kenichi Uchigaki, Ruben Bautista, Sal Butera, Beau Runningen and Melissa Hernadon made up just a few of the great players that filled up this portion of the chart. Second round of the winners side found Beau Runningen taking on Toyko player, Kenichi Uchigaki. Beau made a heart filled effort but fell short, sending Uchigaki further into the winners brackets and himself to the losers side. Uchigaki proceeded to find wins over Branch Talley, Larry Bohn and Sal Butera all of which allowed him to face off against Oscar Dominguez in the final 4 winners. Dominguez made his way there with wins over Melissa Herndon, Amir Shoshan and Attila Bezdan. This was hard fought battle between the two international friends, but ended with Kenichi Uchigaki taking down Dominguez 9-6. This win ensured Uchigaki to face off with Geronimo for the hot seat. The match up one sided early on with Geronimo taking the win 9-5, putting him in the hot seat.

Meanwhile, the action continued on the losers’ side where team Hungary faced off. Vilmos Foldes defeated his best friend and road partner 9-4 knocking Attila out of the competition. Vilmos would then go on to beat Sal Butera in a hill-hill, nail bitter which came down to a safety battle on the 8 ball in the final game. However the hill-hill matches were not over for Foldes just yet, as Victor Castro played his heart out but fell short to Foldes in the following round. On the top side of the losers bracket, Oscar Dominguez found himself fighting back against Efren Reyes, who at one point led the match 8-2. Dominguez came with great out after great out, eventually tying the match at 8-8. In the case game, Reyes was up to break. Reyes broke in two balls and skillfully made an incredible out on Dominguez, forcing Oscar to settle for 5th/6th.

The 3rd/4th match found Foldes and Reyes once again. Foldes found his revenge on Reyes winning 9-6 and sending him to the losers side final against Uchigaki. Uchigaki, who was feeling ill and very jet lagged opted to allow Foldes to move onto the finals by forfeit. The finals between Vilmos Foldes and Rodrigo Geronimo was a match to be seen. In true double elimination format Foldes would have to defeat Geronimo twice to claim victory. Foldes easily handles Rodrigo winning the first set 9-3. The second set was much more of a grind with many break and runs, kicking and safety play. Rodrigo eventually grinded down Foldes and took his victory in a close 9-7 win. This win would make Rodrigo a three time tour stop winner this season. Also, a congrats to Melissa Herndon for being the top female finisher and receiving a $100 bonus.

9-Ball

Please join us at OnCue Billiards in La Mesa, CA for live-streamed coverage of The Mezz West State Tour – Stop #10. As the west coast braces itself for a month’s worth of excitement, marked by several huge annual events, POV Pool expects to feature a spectacular field of players from around the world this weekend.

Playing 9 ball, The Mezz West State Tour always hosts a mixed field of professional and amateur players, who are quite often, evenly matched through the tournament system in place (Pros to 9 games – Semi Pros to 8 and Amateurs to 7 games). We’ve seen the rise of new blood finish very high to earn top rankings on The Mezz West State Tour. Additionally, we’ve seen the ‘usual suspects’ of our sport make brief appearances on the tour to secure a ranking position worthy of entry to the upcoming ‘Top Gun’ event in March. Mika, Rodney, Efren, Bustamante and Schmidt have all made single appearances on the tour, yet could easily threaten the existing ‘Top 32′ players from qualifying in the Top Gun.

With only 2 qualifying events remaining, it’s entirely up to new hopefuls, to stand their ground to retain or improve what they have already earned – names like, Fleming, Stensrud, Williams, Garcia, Logan, Lipps, Fangre, Alpajora, Prentice, who either loom near top 32 or within, are all going to have to pull off their best work over the next 2 events. Best of luck and balls on the break to everyone!

Please share and spread the word on this weekend’s live stream, folks! We are looking forward to some special players and great action – Free and Live all weekend!

The Mezz West State Tour – Stop #9

BullShooters Gets A Taste Of The Action! 

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 8.44.16 AM

The Mezz West State Tour headed to Phoenix, Arizona for its 9th stop of the season at the beautiful BullShooters establishment owned by Mike Bates. Mike and his staff worked tirelessly all weekend to accommodate the 87 players, who convened to this legendary room with 43 tables of all types. Players from all over the west coast and along with several international stars in attendance; the crowd was not disappointed to a world class demonstration of 9 ball.

Scott Frost at Bullshooters

Scott Frost at BullShooters – PHX, AZ

The top half of the bracket was led by one pocket specialist and high stakes action player Scott Frost. Frost had a strong support group as he played some high powered 9 ball defeating Danny Gokhul, Tommy Tokoph, Bobby Emmons, Chuck Evans, and finally Beau Runningen to play for the hot seat.

‘Team Hungary’ – Led By Attila!

Meanwhile, leading the bottom half of the bracket was  the Hungarian, Attila Bezdan. Attila is in the United States on a sports visa with road partner and best friend Vilmos Foldes to play on the Mezz West State Tour. The always jovial Attila had some solid play with wins over Jason Gilbert, Brian Begay, Mitch Ellerman, and Vilmos Foldes to get the chance to play Scott Frost for the hot seat. After a very impressive start, the young Hungarian allowed Frost into the match with some errors and Frost took full advantage. After some fortunate rolls on behalf of Attila, he capitalized on his fortune with intelligent safes and pocketing sending the “Freezer” to the west side of the bracket.

On the one loss side Vilmos Foldes awaited Scott Frost after two very hard fought victories over Oscar Dominguez and Beau Runningen. Frost jokingly told Attila he would “double dip” him in the finals but Vilmos was quick to say he wouldn’t be playing in the finals. The friendly trash talk was the perfect backdrop to what became an incredible match by Foldes and Frost. Having only the 7 and 9 ball left in the hill hill game, Frost left himself a bit too straight and tried to punch the ball over for position on the 9. This caused the 7 ball to jaw in the hole leaving Foldes a hanging 7 ball and routine 9 ball. A poor position play on the 9 left Foldes a predicament of back cutting the 9 or firing cross side which Vilmos shot at warp speed making it and sealing Frost’s fate in the hill hill game. The all Hungarian final was played out with Attila, winning his first event ever on the Mezz West State Tour.

Special Thanks To All Sponsors! 

The MWST would like to thank their sponsors for their continuous support of bringing pool back to the west coast. In addition, a very special thank you to “Fast” Lenny Marshall for donating his time and hard work for the Live streaming. Also a congrats to Tina Hess for being the top female finisher and receiving $100 bonus.

Family Billiards Hosting Stop #7! 

Once again, Oscar Dominguez and Desiree Rivera’s ‘Mezz West State Tour’ will be making a stop at Delbert Wong’s ‘Family Billiards‘ venue in San Francisco, California – chalking up the 7th in a total of 11 stops in its debut season on the west coast of the United States. Playing 9 ball on Delbert’s collection of 18 Brunswick, Gold Crown pool tables, we are sure to catch some great moments in pool history as over 200 members of the tour compete heavily to qualify for the tour’s ‘Top Gun 32′ event which, will be played out at Hard Times Billiards in Southern California on March 7th-8th, 2015.

FAMILY BILLIARDS!
