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: TOP GUN!

top gunAfter 11 events on the Mezz West State Tour, a total of 32 invited players came to Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, CA to compete in the year end event for its 12th and final event of Season 1. The invited players were chosen based off a points system based off the Camel Pro Tour rankings. The top players accumulated points based off their performances to play in a special year end event of $2000 added prize money plus the membership dues collected throughout the season which totaled to 5750 off of 231 total members. In addition, as a bonus, the top 16 ranked players did not pay an entry fee while the 17-32nd ranked players paid a standard $65 entry fee.

 

Rail ActionThe top half of the board was led by co founder of the MWST, Oscar Dominguez with wins over the Filipino veteran, Ramon Mistica 9-4, followed by wins over Johnny Kang 9-4, Dave Hemmah 9-5, and Ernesto Dominguez 9-0, to lead up to the hot seat match. The bottom half of the bracket was dominated by Hungarian sharpshooter, Attila Bezdan, with wins over Phil Prentice 9-3, Ramin Bahktiari 9-3, Melissa Herndon 9-4, and road companion Vilmos Foldes 9-4. The hot seat match was one sided as Attila came out firing balls in from all angles putting pressure on Dominguez. After a few failed safeties, Attila ran away with the match with a 9-5 score.

table timeMeanwhile on the losers side, Rodrigo Geronimo who lost his first match to Tang Hoa 8-4, had grinded through seven matches against Kevin May 9-3, Beau Runningen 9-7, Chris Fangre 9-3, Melissa Herndon 9-5, Tang Hoa 9-4, Ernesto Domiguez 9-4 and Ruben Bautista 9-7 to reach the 3rd place match against Oscar Dominguez. Rodrigo looked hungry to reach the finals and took a quick 5-1 lead over Dominguez. It wasnt until Geronimo missed a crucial 2 ball in the side pocket to widen the lead to 6-1 that Dominguez had a chance to take control of the table. Winning that game and then the next 3, Dominguez was able to tie it up 5. The following 6 games were each nail biters, with each player playing inspirational kick, jump and safety shots. Dominguez fell behind once again 7-5, but in his true fashion, showed a lot of heart to come back and win the match 9-7 sending him back to the finals to seek revenge on Bezdan.

Attila Bezdan in the Finals! Copyright 2015 – POV Pool Media

The finals was one to be seen. Bezdan played flawless, only missing two balls the entire set. He pocketed every ball on the table as if they had eyes and controlled the cue ball at a top notch level. His break was also in top gear, leaving Dominguez helpless. Attila Bezdan went on to easily win the set 8-2. His victory was well deserved, as he was the best player on this day. All of us on the Mezz West State Tour will surely miss him next season and would like to congratulate him on his very great accomplishment.
