Last year’s winners! 

Dennis at the Dickson!

In 2016, it looked like the only thing hindering Dennis Orcollo’s ability to sweep the whole WCS was that he missed the Hard Times, Bellflower event to fly early for his visa renewal. ‘RoboCop’ proved unbeatable at the 4th Annual Cole Dickson, finding only mild, thorny spots against Santos Sambajon, Jr and Rodney Morris. Dennis also proved too powerful for the swashbuckling, John Schmidt who got taken down a peg for the hot seat. Finally, Dennis administered an even stiffer lashing in the Final Match against the warrior himself, Francisco Bustamante with a final score of 11-2.

Then, it was off to California Billiards for the ‘double header’ West Coast Challenge $5k added one-pocket and $10k added 10-ball events. Attended by a field of accomplished pros and hardened shortstops, Dennis Orcollo found the one-loss side early in both events but, fought back to double-dip the final matches; Bob Hercheck in the 1-hole and Alex Pagulayan in the 10-ball. After five days at the 30,000 square foot CA Billiards venue, Dennis earned almost $15,000 in prize money which, was well earned against the likes of Thorsten Hohmann, E. and O. Dominguez, Jason Williams, Paul Marquez, Amar Kang, Ramin Bakhtiari, Bill Meachum, Alex Pagulayun, Santos Sambajon, Steve Linglebach, Bernie Pettiepiece, Bee Davison and John Schmidt; all who’s tournament lives came pass by the stroke Dennis’ hand.

John Morra Takes Hard Times!

In the absence of Dennis Orcollo, it would be John Morra to reign supreme at 2016’s Hard Times event in Bellflower, CA as players from California Billiards migrated south to the ‘Home Of Champions’ and a chance to take a piece of the $5k added event. Unbeknownst to us all, this was to be one of John’s last title victories, before announcing his sudden retirement from pool to pursue his lifelong interest in music and arts. John was a bye in the first round, but hammered on the BCA Hall of Famer, Rodney Morris in his first match, winning 9-3. John went on, undefeated against Butch Barba, Giorgio Georgiev, Alex Pagulayan and finally, Francisco Bustamante in an epic ‘Final Match’!

The 2017 Junior Norris Memorial Shootout! 

When it comes to pocket billiards in the U.S., one can’t deny that there are many legends of the game. And, in Wichita Falls, TX there lived a man named Junior Norris, born in 1925, he was a World War II veteran and patriot who played pool most of his life, Junior referred to the pool hall as ‘home’. A dear friend to Mike Massey who Junior competed against as far back as the 1960’s; Mike could joyfully regale you with stories of Junior Norris, like how Junior could pick up 13 balls with one hand to Mike’s 8 balls in one hand.

Pool Pro: Mike Massey tells 'Junior Norris' stories to KDFX News in 2016.

Junior lived on to the ripe age of 90 years old, before his passing in March of 2016. Survived by his daughter, Sherrie Glenn and two brothers, David and Charlie, the ‘Junior Norris Shootout’ which, started in 2013 as a birthday tournament for her Dad every month of June, but has since grown to become an annual gathering of over 150 players paying tribute to the man who found his home on the rails.

Remembering The Texas Legend, The Inspiration: Junior Norris


Junior’s journey in life began in 1925 in Wichita Falls, TX where he was also raised and like many kids in the early 1930’s, Junior at the age of 8 years old began playing his own mocked up version of pocket billiards with marbles and sticks in the back alley behind the local pool room. That said, Junior’s life wasn’t just a long series of pool stories, as his fate was sealed when he and his two brothers were called to serve with the military during World War II before they could finish high school.

After his tour of duty, Junior returned to Wichita Falls and was employed at Mid Central Fish Company but, his love for pocket billiards did not fade. In the early 1960’s, Junior Norris would attend every tournament at The Stardust in Las Vegas (aka ‘The Stardust days’) where he competed and cashed with some of the world’s best players to enter the arena. Throughout his life, he would take on different roles in the auto and oil industry, but pocket billiards turned out to be his biggest passion. It has been noted by Junior’s daughter, Sherrie Glenn that his home used to be the pool-hall and his second home was ‘home’.

A feared and seasoned pool player, a tough competitor; Junior played in many World Championships and often cashed. In 1995, Junior Norris was inducted into the Texas Billiards Hall of Fame, but probably his most treasured memory is from 2015, when he and his brothers were honored by the United Sates Military with their high school diplomas and military decorations which, were finally presented 70 years after their service; a story that made headlines in Texas.

The United States Billiard Association presents: “Gabriel’s 3-Cushion Tour Events” #1

To kick-off 2017 with something special. Professor Q Ball’s, Paul Frankel, the USBA’s current president, Mazin Shooni, and its board members have arranged a double-header billiards competition, to be hosted at The Casino Del Sol resort in Tucson, Arizona. The USBA/Gabriel’s Tour Event shall be a six-day affair for a few competitors who were lucky enough to secure positions in both, the 42 player ‘B’ tournament on January 16th and in the 42 player ‘Open’ tournament on Jan 19th. Somewhat stunning news also was that, for a first-time, ‘prestigious’ event at a premier venue like Casino Del Sol, 3-cushion players all over the country responded with entry forms that filled both events within four weeks of the official announcement in September, 2016.

Original quote from the website: “The Gabriels USBA Tour Event at Casino Del Sol in Tucson Arizona (January 16-21) has reached its maximum entrants! Both the “A” event and the “B” event are full. If you’re still considering playing contact Mazin Shooni at (248) 910-4466 or Paul Frankel (901) 210-7251 in the event a cancellation opens a last minute position. The official list of players for both the A and B events follows.”

POV Pool Celebrating 5 Years of Coverage

Celebrating 5 Years of live-streamed action and event coverage

daniel and geraldine of povpool

Daniel and Geraldine of POV Pool

Chris Swart’s, California Billiards in Fremont are currently taking entries for “POV Pool’s 5th Anniversary Pool Tournament”, taking place on December 9th-11th, 2016. The 3-day event will consist of a mini 9-ball tournament on Friday evening, and followed by a $2,000 added one-pocket tournament on Saturday and Sunday. Entries for both tournaments can be taken in person, by mail or credit card by calling 510-668-1670.

December 5th 2016, POV Pool Media will officially reach a milestone of 5 years in operation since its broadcast of ‘The Big Deal’, 9 Ball Tournament at The House Of Billiards in Sherman Oaks. The 2 day event ended with an exciting final match between, Wayne Pullen and Jerry Lin (Watch it here). Inspired directly by videos and events produced by entities like ‘Accu-Stats’, ‘The Action Report’ and ‘Inside Pool’ the, ‘POV Pool’ brand name was launched to compete with the ongoing demand for live coverage of pool players and events happening on the west coast of the United States. Since that time, ‘POV’ has provided coverage at almost 200 separate events and produced almost 2000 matches which, are archived on YouTube.

Join us for a celebration of memories

Live streamed coverage will take place during all 3 days of the event. We are also working to provide fans, supporters and players with some special giveaways during the event. Some additional programming is expected to include special memories and moments. POV Pool would like to thank our sponsors of this event and also our long list of supporters over the years (too long to list here).
