So, you’ve made all the stripes on the table and you’re left with the 8…
Well, POV Pool will be left with an ‘8’ at the end of 2017. But, before we get there, we’ve got patterns to play, a cue-ball to control and even more balls to sink. So, here’s our list of events streaming live on POV Pool as we get closer to hill for the end of this year. Save the dates, tell a friend and ‘Keep Loving Pool’!
On these events we’d like to give a ‘Special Thanks’ to, OB Cues, Jerry Oliver Custom Cues, Bryant Billiards, Red Tree Jewelry, Outsville Inc., John and Karen Barton of JB Cases, Tiger Products, IV Organics, The Texas ACS League, Janet Ybarra, Chris Swart, Heriberto Arreguin, Tom Wirth, Ray and Janette Cruz, Mark Cantrill, Dave Hemmah, Shirell Ivey, Joey Chin, Frank Almanza, Al Moreno and Tony Torres; and to all of you who play and participate (too many to name).
