Hard Times 10-Ball Pushed to Saturday

10 and 1 featured image

July 18th-19th

Doors open at 11am/Tournament Play begins at Noon

Have you ever drove through traffic in Los Angeles during rush hour?  Have you ever been stuck on your way from Las Vegas to LA in traffic because of an accident?  Ever gone to your favorite pool hall and the power was out?  Are you under the impression that the pool room will be hot?  How about, just not knowing that a tournament was happening?

20150716_192100

These factors and many others have lead to the push of the Hard Times 10-Ball to Saturday.  It is unfortunate that these factors have all contributed to the delay of a great tournament, but we hope that this will not deter players from still coming out on Saturday to play in this $2,500 added tournament because it is a 32 man field.  The A/C is working GREAT, there won’t be any traffic tomorrow morning, the power is up and running…and WE ARE STILL HAVING THE TOURNAMENT!

We, at POV Pool, would be disheartened if the last Hard Times 10-Ball fell at the 6th Annual because of a lack of player attendance.  POV Pool is pleading that our supporters come out tomorrow and play in this tournament.

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.

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!

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.
