Francisco Bustamante quickly started the morning by defeating James To and knocking him out of the tournament.  In the same breadth, Dennis Orcullo beat out Angelo Inness, sending Inness to the 1-Loss side.  Delbert Wong continues, as Rylan Hartnet falls out of the tournament.  And, Doug Whaley, after playing in the tournament until 3am, unfortunately came back Sunday to lose to Jaynard Orque.


Vilmos Foldes vs. Francis RitaRita

Featured next a 1-Loss match, Francisco Bustamante and the loser of Jason Williams vs. Santos Sambajon.  Santos Sambajon maintained his lead, until Jason won 3 games in a row to tie Sambajon.  Sambajon defeats Williams 9-6, sending Williams to the next argonaut, Francisco Bustamante.  Sambajon will advance on the winner’s side to play Dennis Orcullo.


Francisco Bustamante took on a tough match against Jason Williams.  Williams stood strong down one at 5-4, but missed a 2ball and couldn’t recover from there.  Bustamante took a break after the following game and came back defeated Williams 9 – 4.

Delbert Wong, owner of Family Billiards defeated Angelo Inness in a hill/hill match, sending him out of the tournament, to then face Francisco Bustamante.  At the same time Francis RitaRita conquered Jaynard Orque, to then move on to play Oscar Dominguez (who defeated Phil Prentice).


On the Winner’s Side, Dennis Orcullo met up with Santos Sambajon, where Santos maintained a 4-0 lead, but not for long.  Dennis crept back up, but Santos still led 6-3.  Dennis then takes the lead at 7-6, but Santos wins the next game to make it 7-7 and breaking.  After the next game bring Santos gets on the Hill at 7-7.  He then misses the 5ball, to give Dennis the table.  Dennis takes advantage of this and gets to the Hill and has the break.  With a dry break and tough lay-out, Santos tried to be a hero and ends up losing!  John Schmidt got to the hill first playing Vilmos Foldes at 8-4, but Vilmos won a couple games to make it 8-7…Schmidt might have been too much for Foldes and wins 9-7.

The feature table presented a strong Oscar Dominguez who started out the match up 6-0 versus Francis RitaRita.  Francis finally gets a game to make it 6-1, but Oscar was too much for Francis and beat him 8-2.

Francisco Bustamante runs a 4pack!!!  Bustamante came out strong against Delbert Wong making it 7-0 before Delbert even made it to the table!  Bustamante then wins 8-1.


John Schmidt vs. Dennis Orcullo

Dennis Orcullo came out feverishly winning two racks in less than 10 minutes, but when John Schmidt got to the table he took advantage. At 4-2, Dennis Orcullo put his car into the next gear going to 6-2, but with a couple innings on the 3ball, John Schmidt takes a ball-in-hand and wins the rack.

Francisco Bustamante and Oscar Dominguez were then featured on the live stream table with a large audience watching as the two battled it out.  Bustamante got to the hill first 7-2, but not without Oscar winning another game bringing it to 7-4. Oscar was down on the 7ball and misses (which at first looked like a skid)!  Oscar at that point concedes the match to Bustamante.FullSizeRender (1) copy

John Schmidt takes his time to warm up for Francisco Bustamante for 3rd place and $1,025!Bustamante wins the lag, but scratches on his break, but with a bad roll on the 5ball for Schmidt, Bustamante comes back to the table to clear the table. With several innings to the table and mistakes by both players, John Schmidt ties up the match at 1-1. Schmidt scratches on the bracket and Bustamante then runs the table (2-1).  With Django’s fancy maneuvers around the table, he was able to take the fourth rack. Bustamante overtook Schmidt and got to Hill-2.  After John was able to win his 3rd match, Bustamante played a safety.  After what he may have thought was a bad hit on the 1ball, John Schmidt conceded to allow Francisco Bustamante the win.


Dennis ‘RoboCop’ Orcullo


Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante


(One race to 11)

Francisco Bustamante comes out the gate winning the first game, but Dennis checks his 1 and raises him 5 MORE GAMES! After running 3 packs, the score was 6-1.  After Dennis played a successful safety, Bustamante turns to the crowd and says, “that’s all I got!” Dennis then goes back to his regularly scheduled program and wins the game bringing the score to 7-1.  Bustamante jokes with the crowd (being down 8-1), and says, “You can do it, Django!!!” As he misses the 1ball, Bustamante says more quietly, “Shit…I can’t do it.”  But, lucky for him, Dennis missed the 1ball and Francisco was back at the table.  Several innings on the two and hooking himself for the 4ball, Dennis gives up the table to Francisco to win the next game to bring the score to 7-2.  With a little funny foot work through a couple more racks, Dennis eats his 9th meal of the match.  Remember in the call pocket format, each pocket has to be called, so when Bustamante made the 4-ball in a different pocket and Dennis got up, Django jokingly said, “Where are you going?”  With that, Dennis finished off the rack and put himself on the top of the hill.  As Django misses the 8ball, he concedes the match, give Dennis Orcullo the win!




Log #2 – July 1st, 2016 

First on the live-stream table was Rodrigo ‘Edgie’ Geronimo vs. Frank Giordano.  Edgie struggled a bit to wake up this morning at the table, but pulls off the win.

Franciso ‘Django’ Bustamante comes up next on the feature table against, a strong local favorite, Jaynard Orque.  Although, Jaynard came out strong and played a great match, but Bustamante was able to get to the hill first and defeat Jaynard 8 – 4.

With so many STRONG players, the match-up featured was Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes vs. John Schmidt.  Reyes starts off with a 2 game lead before Schmidt was able to get on the board, but with a 2-10 combo, Reyes got a third game.  Schmidt shows a lot of heart playing Reyes and ties up the match at 6-6.  Reyes gets to the hill first, but Schmidt doesn’t let the match get away without a fight.  At Hill-Hill, Reyes pushes from the break, but Schmidt gives it back.  Reyes kick safes the one ball, but Schmidt was able make the one and makes a phenomenal 2 ball with the cue ball slightly hooked.  From there the table opens up, for Schmidt to take the match with a 9-10 combo!

Another match not to miss…Rodney ‘the Rocket’ Morris vs. Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante! Champion after Champion! Morris pulls ahead of Bustamante and defeats him 8-5.


Jason Williams  starts off with a strong start against Edgie Geronimo with a 3-0 lead, but not for long.  Edgie comes back with 2 games. Williams goes on to extend his lead to 6-3, as Geronimo looks a bit sluggish today.  Williams goes to the hill first at 7-4 and goes on to beat 8-5!

Bustamante VS Chohan: 1-Pocket Smash Up!

POV Pool and Good Timez Billiards in Las Vegas bring you the One-Pocket match up you’ve been waiting for, Francisco “Django” Bustamante vs. Tony “T-Rex” Chohan.  Ok, maybe you haven’t been waiting for it, since you don’t normally consider Francisco Bustamante as a 1-Pocket player; but some inside sources say the pool-world is in for a big surprise! PPV-ACTION-HEADER-MASTER88

We all know that Tony Chohan has been in the One-Pocket news lately.  Chohan took first place at Buffalo Billiard’s, defeating Danny Smith, Alex Pagulayan, and Scott Frost.  Invited to the Accu-Stats “Make it Happen” event, Chohan beat Pagulayan the first round of round robins, but was defeated by Jeremy Jones and then by Shane Van Boening.  He came back to defeat Danny Smith in the final round of play, though.  Some say he is the next big One-Pocket leader, but could it be possible that, after this particular matchup with ‘Django’, you could all end up scratching your heads – ‘Efren’ style?ONE POCKET WEB

Francisco Bustamante is primarily known as a strong rotation player and not for his One-Pocket knowledge, but that doesn’t mean Bustamante doesn’t know the game.  Over his 42 years of playing (it is said that he began playing at the age of 10), Bustamante has acquired many accolades and has been considered one of the world’s best cue sports players.  This being said, with his cue ball control, precise ball pocketing and enormous championship persona, he won’t be letting this match-up slide out of his hands. He’s a BCA Hall of Famer, a 2012 West Coast Challenge One Pocket Champion after besting, Scott Frost, Corey Deuel and John Schmidt. Busti is also a 2013 Derby City ‘Master of the Table’ where he took 1st place in the ‘Banks’ division and 2nd place in the One-Pocket division. Let’s not get the ball twisted too much in Chohan’s favor, folks. A winning ‘hot streak’ is one thing, but compared to years of all around success against the unshakeable Bustamante, Chohan is going to have to dig in, get his ‘GameTight’ or swallow a dose of the ‘Django’ medicine.

True Story: In 2007, Francisco Bustamante played in the Hard Times Billiards (Sacramento) Summer Jamboree.  In the One-Pocket tournament, Bustamante played a young 26 year old, Tony Chohan to send him to the one-loss side.  Tony Chohan made his way through the scenic route to play Bustamante in the finals, just to be defeated again and take second place.

Fast forward nine years and each player has evolved and grown, just to meet again in Las Vegas!  This time, not for a $3,500 first place win, but for a purse of $30,000!July 19 21
