Efren Reyes on POVPOOL

Tuesday – October 13th @ 3:00 PM / PST

One Pocket Match with Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes Races to 3 for $100 against POVPOOL’s, Daniel Busch. Played on table 6 at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California – Spectators welcome. Free entry! 

Warmup at 2pm / PST – Match begins at 3:00 PM / PSTHard Times Billiards Bellflower

Efren “Bata” Reyes battles POVPOOL playing 1-pocket.  The 70+ title champion takes on Daniel Busch, the zero title champion (unless you consider the numerous weekly wins at The Golden Cue).  You hear Daniel commentate time and time again and now is your time to take to the commentary in the chatroom 3pm PST on Tuesday, October 13th with ‘Box’ Patterson, Wayne Pullen and Ken Hoshide providing audio commentary.  Although, Daniel is practicing and gearing up for the match, I’m pretty sure Efren is enjoying a chess match somewhere, wondering who the next victim will be.  Efren will be spotting Daniel 10-7, so tune in tomorrow and root for our very own, Mr. Busch, in the match of his lifetime, as he challenges Efren to the game of 1-pocket.   Watch it On YouTube!

Monsters are Invading Bellflower on Thursday!

Thursday – April 2nd, 2015

Hard Times Billiards – Bellflower, CA

Hard Times Billiards Bellflower POV_minimal_v

FREE AND LIVE – 10-Ball Double Header Action On POV Pool! 

On April 2nd, POV Pool in association with Epic Billiards, PiUS Promotions and Hard Time Billiards will be in Bellflower this Thursday to provide free live coverage of two scheduled matches between 2 of the pool-world’s rising Filipino stars facing off against possibly 2 of the toughest opponents the west coast can bring to them.

Match #1 – Joven Bustamante vs Vilmos Földes / 2pm PST  

What we have here is a good ol’ fashioned rematch, folks! Joven Bustamante (no relation) has been kicking ass and taking names in WPA events as far back as 2007. A very young looking 36 years old with enough firepower in his left-pinky to beat me with the 7 ball, Joven has been racking up wins in the U.S. since he touched down from the Philippines in February of this year; cashing in the Derby City 9 Ball, Jay Swanson Memorial, Chuck Markulis Memorial, CSI US Bar-Table Championships and recently taking 2nd place in the 25th Annual Andy Mercer 9 Ball Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Joven will face off against Vilmos Földes of Budapest, Hungary! Vilmos eats 9 Balls for breakfast and sleeps with with a loaded, Predator soft case under his pillow at night. He has been terrorizing the West Coast pool scene as of late, earning himself a #1 ranking on the Mezz West State Tour’s 11 stops in its 1st season. He has been invited by Allen Hopkins to compete in the upcoming Pro 10 Ball Event at this year’s Super Billiards Expo!

Word on the street is…Vilmos and Joven got into action 2 weeks ago at Pool Sharks Las Vegas in ‘The Pit’. In a nail-biting, Hill/Hill match, Vilmos walked away a winner and sent the ‘Corporation’ away to scrape for spare change at the bottom of their car seats for gas-money home. Now, fully reloaded and ready to strike back, Joven and hopes to regain his ‘Epic’ status as “The most dangerous pretty boy in the West!”

Match # 2 – Edgie Geronimo vs Rodney Morris / 6pm PST

What can we say about Edgie Geronimo? Friggin’ ridiculous? Future world champion? 37 year old pool phenom from Bulacan?  Recently sponsored and fully outfitted by Tiger Products, this February, 2015 – This Thursday, Edgie Geronimo will also be enjoying his latest promotion in the U.S. as ‘The guy the world thinks can beat, ‘Rocket’ Rodney Morris in an even game of 10-Ball!”. Edgie has reigned supreme amongst his peers this year, giving scores of pool players muscle cramps and cottonmouth with nothing less than a distant gaze. At the end of most days Edgie skips merrily along in life, pockets filled with everyone else’s money. And always, when asked about it later, Edgie insists he ‘just got lucky’ with about as much sincerity as Vanilla Ice watching your house while you’re on vacation.

Rodney  Edgie

Welcome Edgie Geromino to the world of professional pool! You have arrived and graduated to a new level of excellence where your luck could possibly run dry. If you can survive the thrusters of this Rocket that you are about to ride, then you will have truly convinced me that you really are something to be feared in the pool world! Rodney Morris has also just come off his 6th consecutive 10-Ball win at The Wyoming Open and with it, the recent arrival of his precious, baby boy name Zayden Rocket!. This Rocket is going to bring some turbulence your way, Edgie. I hope you have your spacesuit handy and your helmet on!

Mezz West State Tour – Rev’ving Up For Fresno!

The Mezz West State Tour – Forges on!

After just 2 scheduled events of 12 in its first season, The Mezz West State Tour has quickly accumulated 122 members, with an official tour ranking and a desire to earn a spot in the season ending’s, ‘Top Gun” Finale Event of just 16 players in March of 2015. As the Tour prepares for its next stop this weekend at Diamond Billiards in Fresno, California it looks as though the membership should grow to see more new players, sparking not just local interest in winning a piece of the $2,000 added money and a place on the rankings list, the Tour’s third event has also signed on a handful of other popular names in pool like, Gerardo Jamito, Melissa Herndon, Brian Parks, Atila Bezdan and also the young Hungarian Pro, Vilmos Foldes, who has expressed a desire to live on the west coast permanently.

Getting Stronger!

This time, playing 9 Ball instead of 10-Ball, statistically so far, the field for the upcoming Diamond Billiards event is already a little stronger than tour stop #2 at Hard Times – Sacramento, with 5 professional players in the field and more expected. Sacramento’s Hard Times Billiards, which only took in 4 professional players last month saw the rise of Jaynard Orque, who defeated some of its strongest players to take 1st place and now holds a ranking of #4 on the tour. It’s a simple fact, that The Mezz West State Tour, which provides a ranking position to its members and slight handicap to pro players seeking competition is quickly inspiring pool players to bring their best game to fight for a place at the top of the rankings list.

See The Player Rankings!

During a brief phone conversation with me on Monday of this week, Tang Hoa, who holds position #11 on the ranking list said, “I want to continue playing this season to make it to the Top 16 and qualify for the ‘Top Gun’ event. I think I have a strong chance to make it in, but just to make sure, I’m going to Fresno this weekend. See you there, Buddy!”

Stop #3 – The Venue is Diamond Billiards! 

Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 12.11.18 PMDiamond Billiards was opened in the mid 1990’s by an industrious man named Dan Dadian who, at one point owned 5 locations in Central California and Reno, Nevada. Passing away in 2012, Dan is survived by his wife, Sheri Dadian and who now owns and operates Diamond Billiards located at 6460 Blackstone Avenue; the venue has been at the 6,000 square foot location for over 10 years. It’s also the home of the annual ‘Rocky Antennucci 9 Ball Tournament’ which takes place every Super Bowl weekend and will also host its 3rd Annual, ‘Dan Dadian Memorial Tournament’ in November of 2014. Serving food and beer, Diamond Billiards is a weekly host to APA Leagues, Michael Reddick and Chris Swart’s – California Cue Sports events and an ‘in-house’ league, playing on 6 x 7′ bar sized tables, and 12 x 9′ Rebco Tables and the new addition of one 9′ Diamond Table. Another noteworthy factoid about Diamond Billiards, which pool players always ask about is that the house tables there have recently been *’Dominguez’ed’ and that means that the upcoming Mezz/West State stop will be held to high standards of excellence and playing conditions.
