Delbert Wong and Family Billiards hosting another ‘Cole Dickson’! 

Summer is on the horizon and it’s time to take your foot off the breaks and put the pedal to the metal! This year’s ‘West Coast Swing’ of pool kicks off in San Francisco with it’s first stop of six stops total. On July 2nd and 3rd, Delbert Wong’s Family Billiards is hosting the 4th annual Cole Dickson Open 10-Ball tournament. Since Cole’s passing in June of 2013, Delbert swiftly launched the event to remember one of America’s most entertaining money players of our time. This year’s ‘Dickson’ will be $2,500 added guaranteed; the two day event on Geary Blvd will be played on Family Billiards’ well kept, Gold Crown 9 foot tables that are scheduled to be freshly cloth-ed and tuned by Ernesto Dominguez. Of the six total events on the ‘West Coast Swing’, the Cole Dickson event offers the lowest entry fee of only $75 with no additional late fees. Also, in conjunction with CueSports International and the 2016 CSI U.S. Open events toward the end of July, the first place winner of this year’s Cole Dickson will receive a free entry into their pick of the U.S. Open 8 or 10 ball events; an entry worth $350.

The toughest in the West and the World! 

Charging to San Francisco and sniffing around for action are a host of pro-pool players for this year’s Cole Dickson. We are waiting until June 1st to provide readers with a preliminary list of ‘who’s who’ at the 4th Cole, but one thing’s for sure, last year’s winner, Rodney ‘The Rocket’ Morris has given a positive ‘nod’ along with the likes of Raj ‘The Hitman’ Hundal, Tony Chohan, and last minute travel plans are being made for Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante to attend. (Django is here for big action in Las Vegas on July 19th, but more on that from us soon). Another name floating in the ether is Canada’s top all around player Alex Pagulayan, who’s has been heard to say with a sense of urgency, “I need dates and times! Somebody tell me when this all starts!” Yes, it’s entirely possible that, due to the prestige of the events following this one, The 4th Cole Dickson and the rest of the ‘Swing’ may fill faster than any other before it.

– Congratulations are in order to Alex Pagulayun for just winning the ‘Don Coates Memorial One-Pocket Tournament in Raleigh, North Carolina and the recent, “2016 Canadian 9-ball Championships’. Alex is on fire this year! Let’s not forget that he is also this year’s Derby City ‘All Around’ Champion! READ MORE HERE

Family Billiards – San Francisco

In the Bay Area, the name ‘Family Billiards’ is ubiquitous with pool. The name has been around San Francisco since 1967 and has stood strong as a personal favorite to thousands of pool players from all over the world. Delbert Wong took over ‘Family’ in the early 80’s and moved it to its present location on Geary Blvd. has been known by many as one of those room-owners that gives back to the players. His very close friend, Cole Dickson passed just 4 years ago and was taken too soon from us. Cole Dickson was known to many as one of the best money players around.

Legendary story: Cole once proposed $1,000 per game against the 9-ball ghost and broke the house!

What is the ‘West Coast Swing of Pool’? 

The ‘West Coast Swing’ is a ‘back to back’ annual series of high paying, ‘open’ pool tournaments, held at several venues on the West Coast of the United States within close proximity and time frame. Usually held during summertime, the ‘Swing’ events are designed to attract the world’s top-tier pool players who seek to associate with high profile events, grow their professional careers and promote their sponsors and/or affiliates. Each tournament is independent of one another, so there is no registration and no obligation to play multiple stops. However, the ‘Swing’ events are well coordinated in terms of location and chronology so that they are always synchronous, giving players the opportunity to play all events if they desire.

2016 • July 2nd – 30th • One month of solid action!

This year’s West Coast Swing will start in San Francisco, California on July 2nd for ‘Stop #1’ (The Cole Dickson 10-Ball). Players will gradually work their way south for two weeks through Fremont, California for ‘Stops 2 and 3 (The West Coast Challenge); then to Bellflower, California for ‘Stop 4’ (The Hard Times 10-Ball) and finally, players will ‘swing’ north east to Las Vegas, Nevada for stops 5 and 6 (CSI U.S. Open 8-ball and 10-ball) held at The Rio All Suites Hotel/Resort Casino.

Delbert Wong, owner of Family Billiards, initially wanted a 10-ball tournament, but the poster went to print and wasn’t changed.  During the player’s meeting it went up for vote, and all but two players preferred 10-ball format.  So, at the last minute, it was changed to 10-ball, but you do not need to call pocket.  Slop Counts!

Remembering Cole at Family

Family Billiards – San Francisco, CA

The 3rd Annual Cole Dickson Memorial

9-Ball Open…

Fog City’s Biggest Tournament

enhance-2What factors contribute to why a pool hall would want to hold a memorial tournament after a player passes away?  Why after three years, does Delbert Wong, the owner of Family Billiards in San Francisco, still honor the memory of Cole Dickson?  The stories of delbertCole Dickson are many, but all good.  From a young age, Dickson traveled the country playing against the best…and winning!  He was known as a stand-up individual who played with heart.  He wasn’t afraid to put his money where his mouth was.  He was a rare commodity in the pool world.  Unfortunately, his pool playing days ended short.  For these reasons, Delbert Wong, and the Dickson daughters, Christine and Susan honor his memory with an annual memorial tournament.

Delbert has graciously, for the past three years added money to bring people together to play the dannysport Dickson loved.  This year, Delbert is contributing $2,500 added to the total purse of the tournament.  This open 9-ball tournament brings the top players, not only in Northern California, but the country, as well.  In years past, champions like Ramon Mistica, Rodney Morris, Oscar and Ernesto Dominguez and Santos Sambajon have come to play in this class-act event.

rail birdsThis year entry fees are $85 if paid before June 24th and $100 if paid on the day of the event, June 27th.  There is a $10 green fee that helps to pay for table time and the tournament director.  Although the tournament is slated at race to 8 on the winners’ side and race to 6 on the one-loss side, the tournament director will use his/her discretion whether to shorten or extend the race prior to the tournament beginning, depending upon the amount of players.

So, cross the Golden Gate, Bay, Dumbarton or San Mateo bridges and show up early on Saturday because practice begins at 10:30…get a nice hour and half warm-up prior to the tournament beginning at noon.
