July 16th-19th, 2015

Hard Times Billiards – Bellflower, CA

The 6th Annual Hard Times 10-Ball Open…

…Oh, and by the way, 1-Pocket, too! 

We know you’ve all been wondering about the annual Hard Times 10-Ball’ event in Bellflower, CA. You remember right? Where Alex Pagulayun got whipped into shaped by Carlo Biado in 2013. Where Johnny Kang almost bested Ralf Souquet and take 5th place in 2014. Or the rise of Ruben Bautista’s fame, losing to Dennis Orcullo in the finals of 2014. Well, it’s back again this summer and our duty to report the official announcement of this year’s event, which also includes a $1,500 added, 1-Pocket tournament thrown into the deal!

————————————-

Pool’s new rising star from the Philippines, Carlo Biado, will be traveling to the United States next week for several months and has very quickly been scheduled to headline in an action packed, 2-day double-header billiards match against The Mosconi Cup, ‘Team USA’ player, Dennis Hatch on February 18th, 2014 at 5:00 pm PST (February 19th, 9:00 am UTC). The event will be a an exclusive, live broadcast available all over the world on Point Of View Pool’s, Internet live-streaming website at www.povpool.com via ‘Pay Per View’.

Playing the best of 49 games of 10-Ball, or a ‘race to 25’ games, against Dennis Hatch, Carlo may have his hands full against this veteran player, who has been known to compete at Hard Times Billiards as far back as 20 years and who was recently streamed online by POV Pool, beating Francisco Bustamante during the Hard Times 10-Ball event in July 2013. Meanwhile, we are sure that Biado will have no worries taking on “The Hatchetman!”, who played at the same event and placed 1st out of 104 players, besting the world renowned, Alex Pagulayan, 11 games to 1 in the finals.

Carlo’s match, will be the headliner of 2 matches, the first of which is an ‘undercard’ match between POV Pool’s owner, Daniel Busch and world renowned, British pool/snooker coach and billiards instruction author, Lee Brett (“The Secret Art Of Pool”).

POV Pool’s owner, Daniel Busch states, “(Carlo) Biado is truly an amazing talent and a great gift to the pool community! This will be the 2nd installment of an ‘Action Match’ series, produced by POV Pool. I am honored to showcase some of the world’s greatest talents coming out of the Philippines and from all over the world! POV Pool is working very hard to create the best possible production and high quality entertainment by broadcasting with multiple, hi-definition cameras and featuring one of pool’s star commentators, Jay Helfert.”

Additional Matches and details provided below… 

Day – 1  / Lee Brett vs Daniel Busch!

Famed pool coach and former ‘Bonus Ball’ referee, Lee Brett has agreed to compete against Daniel Busch of POV Pool in a 9-Ball battle for a ‘winner take all’ purse of $2,000. It’ll be a fast and loose race of the best of 59 games and will start at 5:oo pm Pacific Standard Time / 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Commentators Jay Helfert and Beau Runningen will commentate the match and a referee has yet to be named for the event. Matches of this proportion in the U.S. are traditionally a casual affair but Point Of View Pool is mandating that players bring a touch of class to this event by competing in formal attire. It will be reminiscent of the old school of billiards and today’s snooker competitions. Yes folks, vests and bow-ties will be required. Additional cameras and support staff are also being used to capture the drama for viewers.

Day – 2  / Dennis Hatch vs Carlo Biado! 

Dennis Hatch, making a strong comeback in the pool-world as of late, he has competed in a handful of top independent events, such as the Crooks & Castles sponsored ‘Hard Times 10-Ball’ Tournament and recently played with Team USA in the 25th Annual Mosconi Cup Event in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Tuesday, February 18th, also at 5:00 pm PST, Dennis will be matching up with none other than the newest pool sensation from the Philippines, Carlo Biado in a grueling race to 25 games, playing 10-Ball – a ‘call pocket’ format ‘rotation’ game, which Carlo took the prize of 1st place in the aforementioned Crooks & Castles event.
