POV Pool Reaches ‘One Year’ Today – December, 2012 Event Playlist!

Happy Birthday, POV Pool!

On December 4th, 2011 I launched Point Of View Pool with a vision to deliver to fans of the game as many ‘points of view ‘of the billiards community. Not just with video streams and events, but also with press, articles and social media networks. I am proud to report that during this year of infancy, POV Pool on YouTube has already reached 1,322 subscribers and over 350,000 views. I have personally written and published over 25 press releases, which include exclusive interviews and articles on industry developments. I have had the honor of streaming over 30 tournaments at venues all over California, like Hard Times Billiards Bellflower, The California Billiard Club, Sherman Oaks – House Of Billiards, Good Times Billiards, Plush Pocket, The Broken Rack, On-Cue Billiards, Butera’s Billiards, Stix Billiards, The Embassy Club and The PitStop Pub!

I’d like to thank all of the billiard hall owners who have worked with me, all of the commentators who’s list grows longer with every stream; to all of the viewers of the live streams and to the visitors of my site, who’s demand for billiard related content give me a reason to roll out of bed every morning. Let me not also forget the sponsors, the moderators and promotors of streams who have done their very best to keep POV Pool on the map and in demand.

The list of those who have offered me a helping hand and a constructive comment or two is way too long to mention and I cannot forget the players, who’s performances are always a joy to witness. Sitting in the booth and being spectator has taught me more about the game that I would have ever bargained for. It has been an honor to play a small role in your tournament lives, watching the gloves come off, no matter who you are playing or how much you get on with your opponents off the table.

This ‘sport’ or ‘game’, or whichever you choose to call it is nothing less than astonishing to me on all fronts. Never, have I seen people work so hard for so little reward and yet, still show a passion and love for pool without ever questioning whether they are going to quit for good. It is within that spirit that, when times are hard (and they usually are), that I, too shall continue on this journey with Point Of View Pool.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Sincerely, Daniel Busch / Owner – POV Pool Media

Hard Times Billiards Hosting: “The End Of The World: Tournament Of The Mayans!”

For Official Release: 

December 21st, 2012

Hard Times Billiards, Bellflower, CA 

 It’ll be a long and busy month this December for Bellflower’s Hard Times Billiards in SoCal, which is scheduled to host at least 4 tournaments by outside promotors. The most curious of all though will occur on Friday, December 21st, 2012; a date of infamy which the ancient Mayan civilization, self-proclaimed prophets and conspiracy theorists alike say will mark the ‘end of days’ for all! 

 In association with Kamui Billiard Products, Point Of View Pool (POV Pool), Viking Cues, Andrew Park Cues, The Orange County APA, Max Eberle’s ‘Pro Pool Academy’ & Virtual Pool 4Hard Times Billiards will hold the first (and last), “End Of The World: 10-Ball Tournament Of The Mayans!” 

This $1,000 added, one-day, double elimination tournament is open to only 32 players and is currently taking registrations until the field is full. The entry fee for this event will be $100 which means that with a full field of 32, this event will pay out $4,000 through 8th place. And, since ‘the end is near’, sponsors of the event have agreed to part with over 50 prizes and giveaways throughout the event, ranging from cues, shafts, Kamui chalk & tips, Cue Cases, DVD’s and much more. 

          

 John Bertone states, “I phoned Daniel Busch of POV Pool just a few days ago and said, ‘Hey, isn’t it supposed to be the end of the world next month on December 21st?’. Within minutes, Daniel and I were on the same page, working out the details, pitching for sponsors and surveying players to see if this should happen. As it turns out, it seems that the ‘end of the world’ is a pretty easy sell. After all, if you’re a pool player, not even the end of times is going to stop you from doing what you love to do the most, which is to play pool and go out in a blaze of glory!”  

 Daniel states, “We are expecting to see great pool, by the most talented players from all over! Considering the prize fund and the entry fee, we are only expecting the best of the best to take part, but we are sure that there will be a few surprise entries from players far and wide. After all, it’s supposed to be the LAST chance to get some table time with some of pool’s greatest idols! As soon as we receive our first 16 entries, we will begin to announce them. I would like to thank the owner of Hard Times – Eddie Arreguin, Tournament Director – Marie Lim and House Pro – Dave Hemmah for providing their help and services to make this event take place.” 

 To register for this event, please call: Daniel Busch @ 310-923-6639

 Live streaming will take place via Pay-Per-View by POV Pool for $9.95 and will run for the duration of the entire event starting at 12PM PST. To purchase PPV tickets for this event, please visit, http://www.ustream.tv/channel/povpool
