Bogies Billiards To Host – The 2012 Space City Open

The Space City Open will premiere at Bogies Billiards & Sports Bar in Houston, Texas on December 7th-9th, 2012. Presented by Bogies, the Lone Star Billiards Tour, and the APA of North Harris County, this event will be $5,000 added and include Open One Pocket, Open 9-Ball, and a Ladies Open 9-Ball Bar Box event.  The Space City Open is geared towards being one of the most popular events statewide, with a plethora of sponsorships including KCPool NPoker.com and an OB Cues Pro Clinic on December 7th featuring U.S. Open Champion, Corey Deuel. The official rack of the SCO is Delta-13 Rack and the official magazine, Inside Pool Magazine. Tournament action will be broadcasted live at OnSitePool.com/KCPoolNPoker, compliments of Don Hickson, Kansas City, Missouri. 

With Pro Player Deuel in attendance, presenters are certain other pros will follow suit. The steeper entry fees plus $5,000 in added money are sure to attract players, fans, and enthusiasts alike.  And Bogies is ready for the crowd, with 12,000 square feet featuring 31 tables, diamond lights, and bleacher seating. For superb play, all tournament tables will be recovered in Simonis 860, each garnished with a measle cue ball and set of centennial balls.

Inside and outside industry businesses are taking advantage of the affordable 3-day rates for booth and banner spaces.  Joe Salazar, the Connoisseur of fine cues, will be in attendance along with an official APA Merchandise booth, Poison & Predator booth, cue repair, clothing, and much more.  Bogies is converting its almost 2,000 square foot poker room into additional retail space which will double as a players’ break room. This additional space is all inclusive, with a full bar, flat screen TV’s, steel darts, and its own set of restrooms. 

Pro player, promoter, and tournament director Kim White-Newsome will be fielding all inquiries regarding the Space City Open, the OB Cues Pro Clinic, sponsorships, and booth/banner space inventory.

POV Pool Streaming the ‘SoCal Ladies Tour Stop #5’

September 29th & 30th @ Hard Times Billiards, Bellflower

$1,000 Added / WPBA Qualifier!

 If you’re a female pool-player with dreams of ‘going pro’ or simply wanting to find out where you stand amongst some of the west coast’s top tier players, then you should definitely consider signing up for the upcoming Tiger sponsored, SCL9T Tour Stop #5 which takes place this month at Bellflower’s ‘Home Of Champions’, Hard Times Billiards.  This dress-coded, 2-day event will be open to all female players with a ‘2nd chance’, casual tournament being held for those who get knocked out on day 1. 

Organized by WPBA member Melissa Herndon the SoCal Ladies 9-Ball Tour, has held it’s own with consistent sponsorship by Tiger Products, Pool Dawg, and several venues to add money and prizes to the fund in order to continue supporting women’s amateur and professional billiards. In addition to the $1,000 Added prize fund at this stop, it will also be the first, WPBA Masters qualifier event of the year, giving these female hopefuls the incentive to sharpen their skills for a winning spot to this 2013 event. 

SCL9T Founder – Melissa Herndon

“I am very proud to make this stop a WPBA Qualifier.” Says, Melissa. “Over the past 5 years many loyal participants of the SCL9T have worked hard at attending most of these events at locations all over California. Offering a qualifying spot to the WPBA Master’s Event in 2013 merely serves as a testament to all of that hard work.”

Spectators, participants or anyone attending the event will also be eligible to purchase raffle tickets for the chance to win a Tiger Cue, Pool Dawg gift certificates and a gift basket from the SCL9T’s newest sponsor Siam Seas, maker’s of natural beauty products. 

Free Live Stream

Be sure to catch the action which will be streamed live by POV Pool for both days featuring live commentary and additional POV Pool news and announcements throughout. The stream will begin on both days at 10am PST, one hour before start time of the actual tournament.










POV Pool Streaming Live – Sunday August 12, 2012

Streaming @ 12pm PST on POV Pool

We are back at Hard Times Billiards, folks!

Due to the scheduled TAD CUP event on August 4th and 5th, there was a conflict with POV Pool and Hard Times Billiards for the 1st Sunday Tournament stream. That being said, POV Pool will be back at Hard Times to stream the 2nd Sunday, featuring Table 1,  ‘The Devil Table’, which was quoted by Francisco Bustamante as being, “…the toughest table that I’ve ever played on in my life!”

We will also hold a raffle for the spectators in the room for an “El Diablo” Break Jump Cue. This cue also comes with a backup playing shaft and retails at $250.00. The back up playing shaft is also great to have when playing in a room that has a tight space, since  the bottom end of the butt breaks down and attaches to the shaft. 

We look forward to seeing everyone on the live stream which will be on the home page of www.povpool.com
