Family Billiards – San Francisco, CA

The 3rd Annual Cole Dickson Memorial

9 10-Ball Open…

cole-dickson1

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!

‘American Rotation’ Comes to Golden Cue!

Golden Cue to Host Monthly ‘AMRO’ Tournaments! 

Starting on Saturday, February 21st, Joe Tucker’s – ‘American Rotation’ format has done it again, scoring the interest of Ken Hoshide’s, Golden Cue Billiards in South El Monte, CA. Under the tournament direction of Scott Doucette, The Golden Cue has decided hold a monthly ‘Open’, American Rotation Tournament. This is the first of many hopeful AMRO events, which invites players from outside of its own league to join in and learn the game. The ABC Club’s, AMRO game has earned the commitment of 64 flagship locations across the country to participate with 512 registrants competing each season.  The American Rotation National Championships have been won twice in a row by Mike Dechaine. 

Please ‘like’ the Golden Cue AMRO Tournaments on Facebook! 

Live Stream Coverage on POV Pool! 

POV Pool will be providing exclusive coverage of this event, open to 16 players, there is also talk of opening the field up to 24 players if called for. The live stream will begin at 11:30 AM PST with ‘practice people’ until 12:00 pm should kick off the first match. Viewers can expect a fast paced event, with each match racing to just 40 points at no handicap. POV Pool anticipates emotions to run high for new players of the game, who will quickly learn that AMRO is one of the ‘great equalizers’ of all cue related sport games. The rules of American Rotation virtually eliminate, 2 way play, place a high demand on kicking, safety and strategy play – and for some, the glory of running 20 from the break!

What’s new from Tiger? Check it out! 

The American Billiard Club (ABC) and its flagship game of American Rotation (AR) are the creation of U.S. professional poolplayer and instructorJoe Tucker. Powered by Cue Sports International (CSI). Our game is a fresh take on traditional rotation (or 61), a cue sport of the Southeast Asian Games. Efren “Bata” Reyes (The Philippines) is generally considered the top rotation player, followed closely by Shane Van Boening (U.S.).

The ‘Home Of Champions’ Gears Up for Action!

On July 11th-13th and for the 5th year in a row, Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower will be hosting its annual ‘Hard Times 10-Ball Open’ tournament.. With $5,000 added money and POV Pool’s live streaming preparations underway, it’ll be another unforgettable event. Won by Carlo Biado last year, he bested Alex Pagulayan in a landslide final battle, 11 games to 1. Hard Times 10 Ball always attracts an assorted field of the best from all over the world and we can only guess who will be this year’s champion to rise to the top. Past top finishers of this event have been, Dennis Orcullo, Shane VanBoening, Ralf Souquet, Wang Can, Rodney Morris, Manny Chau, Max Eberle, Scott Frost and many others.

Confirmed So Far…

The internationally known pool promoter, author and tournament director, Jay Helfert has confirmed with POV Pool that Warren Kiamco and Dennis Orcullo are confirmed for this years event. Also, widely known to be an agent and manager for two other players whilst on the West Coast, we have a confirmation from Brook Thomason that Francisco Bustamante and Efren Reyes will also be competing. Reigning CSI, US Open 10-Ball Champion, Rodney Morris states that he will compete this year, just before flying to Japan for The Japan Open in Tokyo. And, there has been some discussion that Shane VanBoening may also make an appearance which, if this is the case, means it’s a matter of time before the rest will follow. No word yet as to whether we will be seeing any number of these 4 players: Ko Pin Yi, Ko Pin Chung, Chang Jun Ling and Cheng Yu Hsuan who are travelling from Taiwan to play in Las Vegas this year for the CSI, U.S. Open events. As they develop, more player and promotional updates can be found on The Hard Times 10-Ball’s, Facebook Event Page.

 West State Billiards named as Main Sponsor!

Tournament direction will be led by professional pool player and longtime house-pro at Hard Times, Dave Hemmah. With the new equipment and strong tournament leadership the entrants of this year’s event can expect nothing but the best quality and service at this annual event.

TAP, LLC., which was founded in 1989 by the late Loyd Schonter, is known as the fastest growing amateur pool league in the United States. TAP places a special focus on sportsmanship, etiquette and an attitude of living by the motto, “Always for the Player”. Loyd was a pioneer in the amateur league arena. He was always looking for ‘bigger and better’. 2014 brings a lot to TAP, its Licensees and Players that he was working on and planning for quite some time. Some of those plans will be revealed at the National Meeting that Corporate is having with it’s Licensees on Thursday, March 13th. Loyd shared a vision that he wanted for not only TAP but also the billiard industry. Now his legacy and vision will be carried on as indicated by Kristen, Celeste & Chuck Schonter. TAP will move forward and we will make it all happen and in the timeframe he wanted in 2014. Also, TAP recently launched a new cell-phone scoring which is an industry first, ensuring all members a fun night out, generating less paperwork and producing updated stats with the click of a few buttons

Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 12.55.01 PM Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 12.54.36 PM Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 12.54.22 PM Screen Shot 2014-03-09 at 12.54.00 PM

TAP has the most common and widely accepted rules format in the industry, has a structure and format that provides more to the Amateur Player than any other league. Created in 2007 by Loyd, the ‘POOL Net’ database, which is used to manage the TAP handicap system, membership,  tournament management and player statistics. POOL Net will also be unveiling a upgrade in 2014. There is another major format about to be released in TAP X, which joins the other formats TAP hosts, Call pocket 8 Ball, 9 Ball and 10 Ball events across the country. In Team, Single, and Scotch Double Formats.

Loyd will always be remembered with a great deal of love and respect by all at TAP, and it will be interesting to see the roll out of all the new things he had in mind, as they become a reality in 2014. As he would always say and TAP will do – TAP ON and POV Pool will be in the epicenter, providing live coverage on POV Pool’s Ustream ChannelScreen Shot 2014-03-05 at 4.31.18 PM
