The second day of play brings back seven players. At the end of play yesterday there were two forfeitures, so instead of 8, there are only 7 coming back. Both John Schmidt and Randy Hatten, were unable to make Sunday. To Ernesto’s advantage, he did not have to play a match to begin the day.
Players Returning on Sunday:
Brandon Shuff, Santos Sambajon, Oscar Dominguez, Jeffrey Ignacio
Ernesto Dominguez, Rodney Morris, Vilmos Foldes
The 10-Ball Open started today with 28 players. Although a small field, it is quite strong with players such as Jeffrey Ignacio, Rodney Morris, Vilmos Foldes, the Dominguez’s, Brandon Shuff and others!
The Hard Times 10-Ball Open is postponed one day…originally scheduled to begin Friday evening, there simply wasn’t enough player entries to run the tournament. The 10-Ball tournament is scheduled to begin Saturday at noon (doors open/practice begins at 11am). As of Friday night, there are only 25 players signed up. We are hoping to get at least 32 players, but more would be better. We know Friday evening may make it difficult to play, so if you were on the fence before, you can show up tomorrow by noon and still play!
Tournament Director, Dave Hemmah will be playing the tournament down to the last 6 players (4 from the winner’s side and 2 from the 1-loss side).
Winner’s side: Santos Sambajon, Wayne Pullen, Rafael Martinez and Rodney Morris
1-Loss side: John Schmidt, Damian Alishan
Hard Times 1Pocket Pay-outs…
1st Place: $1,300

As of 1:30 am – Thursday – July 16th, 2015
The One-Pocket Tournament
- Due to some conflicting rumors on times/dates, late fees have been waived and signups will be taken until 12:30 pm PST, at which point there will be a short players meeting before the One-Pocket tournament begins at 1:00pm PST.
- There are reports trickling in that most of the field will sign up at the last minute, including local players, players from Arizona, Las Vegas and Northern California.
- We expect this field to be shorter than hoped, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and GUESS! I’ll say that we get 29 players.
