POV Pool Is On The Move!

May 1st, 2013
Somewhere in Las Vegas, Nevada
 
 As a live stream broadcaster, billiard content provider, and owner-operator of
Point Of View Pool Media, I have made the business decision to re-locate our
headquarters to Las Vegas, Nevada. Tentative move date is April 15th, 2013. POV
Pool will officially re-open in ‘Sin-City’ as of May 1st, 2013.
 
 In just 18 months of operation, Point Of View Pool Media has streamed live pool
action throughout the west coast of the United States at almost every major
independent pool tournament from more than a dozen billiard venues including
Hard Times Billiards, The California Billiard Club, On-Cue, Butera’s Billiards,
Stix Billiards, The Broken Rack and more.
 
 POV Pool’s success on YouTube has grown exponentially, reaching over 2,700 new
subscribers to date with almost 750,000 views. Our events have featured most
of the world’s top professional players – Efren Reyes, Francisco Bustamante,
Alex Pagulayan, Dennis Orcullo, Ronnie Alcano, Rodney Morris, Oscar and Ernesto
Dominguez Stevie Moore, Raj Hundal, Jayson Shaw, Jose Parica, Darren Appleton,
Scott Frost – and the list goes on.
 
 I believe that cue-sports in America is ready to step up to a new level of
exposure and acceptance. Historically, Las Vegas has been the nucleus for
ventures like billiards and other gaming activities to re-generate their
popularity. It is a city that attracts and maintains many talented individuals
and companies in both the entertainment and sports fields.
 
 As far back as the late 80’s, the billiard world has suffered a number of set-
backs which have hindered this great sport from surviving in the mainstream media.
POV Pool’s long term goal is to help generate new and expanded interest in this
sport on a global scale. With the rapid growth of social media broadcasting, the
timing is right for the great game of pool to re-establish it’s former greatness
via extensive live broadcast events that not only will increase interest in
the sport, but will attract and provide proper exposure, growth and return on
investment for major sponsors and media distributors.
 
 There is a huge amount of pool activity throughout the United States. POV Pool
plans to be “on the move”, continuing to schedule our usual live streams at west
coast venues, and also broadening our exposure to cover more events across the
country, and eventually other parts of the world.
 
 We are looking for long term sponsorship and/or investment in POV. The rapid 
expansion of our audience volume and positive feedback that we constantly receive 
underscores the fact that there is, without question, a large audience who love this 
great game and are looking for more events to watch. This also positive, indicates the high
potential for good return on sponsorship and advertising investment.
 
 POV Pool Media is dedicated to bringing back the glory days of pool. With our
re-location to Las Vegas, we look forward to being your first stop for pool
action!
 
Warmest Regards,

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
