The Inaugural Saguaro Cup Team Tournament! 

Let’s just paint a little picture if you will. First, you have the ever popular, Mosconi Cup, which Sky Sports and Matchroom Sport have been showcasing since 1994. Its always an action packed event, featuring carefully selected team members from both Europe and the U.S. who face-off under some of the most strenuous team and singles format 9-Ball matches that also include the steering and guidance of famous Team Captains and Co-Captains from each side…

And now…

BESTSIDE EASTMODE

POV Pool is proud to provide, live-streamed coverage of the first ever ‘Saguaro Cup’ Team Event at Skip and Jan’s Sports Bar in Tempe, Arizona! Played on two, 9 foot, Gold Crown Tables, the best of West Pheonix. AZ and East Phoenix, AZ  have come together to match up in its most strenuous team event in history who are eager to earn the (soon to be prestigious) Saguaro Cup! Played in just one-day, the East Phoenix Team (EastMode) will battle with the West Phoenix Team (BestSide) to play an astounding possible, 21 matches or a race to 11 matches. Each scheduled match will differ from Singles, Scotch and Team format play that could end early or late, depending on the outcome of each match!

The 3rd Annual Cole Dickson Memorial 9-Ball Tournament

Family Billiards – San Francisco, CA

FAMILY

There are only a few players of their time who were called ‘The Best Money Players on Earth’ – Cole Dickson was just that guy, who was known to walk into a pool room and play the ghost for as much as $1,000 a rack, was also known for the famous ‘Twistback’ bank-shot and also recognized as the guy in the deer-hunting cap! We lost Cole to liver cancer in 2013 and most common pool players know very little about this man, who was unshakable as far back as the early 1970’s.

Streaming live from Family Billiards in San Francisco, CA, we have Cole’s long time friend and venue owner, Delburt Wong and Cole’s daughter, Christine Dickson to thank for holding this event once again. POV Pool is pulling some strings to use some rare footage of Cole in action for playback during the live-streamed coverage of this 3rd annual 9-ball tournament!Kamui_logoBlack-web

  • June 27th/28th
  • $2,500 Added
  • 9-Ball
  • Entry: TBA
  • Races: TBA
  • Entries being taken and official announcement very soon!

The Rocket vs Geronimo – Rematch – April 7th!

Tuesday, April 7th – 2015

Epic Billiards – Carson, California

 

April 12th – Match Update!

– Congratulations to Edgie Geronimo for winning this match, 15-25. It was a tough day for Rodney, who learned late in the match that his cue-tip was becoming spongy and after changing shafts it was just too little, too late. The playing conditions shifted continuously during the evening, with the front door of the establishment being opened and closed throughout the match, and heavy rain outside bringing moisture inside.

Drinking and celebrations commenced very quickly after the match, with Joven and Edgie’s ‘Despedida’ (farewell party).

Another great night of action on POV Pool! We are hoping to schedule yet another rematch between Rodney and Edgie Geronimo at the Golden Cue in July, when Edgie returns to Los Angeles!

Check out what’s coming next!

AKA – Edgie Geronimo and Joven Bustamante’s “Despedida”

Rematch scheduled between Rodney Morris and Edgie Geronimo!

Stream starts at 6:00pm / PST on POV Pool! 

Last week’s epic 10-ball battle at Hard Times Billiards was one of POV Pool’s best yet. Now we’ve just heard that tensions are mounting, yet again between Rodney “The Rocket” Morris and the soft-spoken gunslinger from Bulacan, Philippines, Edgie Geronimo.

Hard Times vs Epic Billiards – Very Different Rooms

The 10-ball action match, which took place at Hard Times Billiards on April 2nd ended in a victory for Rodney Morris of 19 games to 12 and was played on much different conditions than the ones being proposed for Tuesday’s rematch. The Gold Crown II’s at Epic Billiards are not as tight and Kamui_logoBlack-webthe tables play a lot slower. Epic’s square footage is only enough to host 6 full-sized tables as opposed to Hard Times, which has 26 tables, tighter pockets and a somewhat more humid atmosphere than Epic. Also, Epic Billiard’s clientele are almost 60% Filipino; there will be HUGE local support for Edgie and this could raise concerns as to whether or not ‘The Rocket’ can take the heat during a long race to 25 with all the excitement going on.

And what of Joven Bustamante?

Well, guys? We don’t really know what’s going to happen with Joven Bustamante. He defeated Vilmos Foldes in a race to 18 games on Thursday, but alas, Vilmos will not be present at Epic Billiards to answer back this time. There is talk of bringing in some backup to play Joven – A few names, like Chris Robinson, Sal Butera and Beau Runningen have been thrown around, but POV’s main focus will be on the headliner match. Spectators are welcome and there is no cover charge to watch. The live stream will be free for all and should start at 6pm / PST.

Please join us for live coverage! Andy Cloth

POV Pool would like to thank:
