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

The Andy Mercer Memorial Tournament in Las Vegas!
March 22nd-24th, 2013.
It has been said by many that this venue is too small to accomodate a stream team.
Every year 64 of the best players from across the United States play at the annual Andy Mercer Memorial 9-Ball tournament at the Rum Runner Las Vegas on Tropicana. The tournament is held in March and is usually the weekend after the Doc Hill Memorial.
The tournament is hosted by owner Geno Hill and every year the board seems to fill faster and faster. Touring pros like Shane Van Boening and Darren Appleton are often viewed as just another match as they compete against some of the best “Bar Box” players in the United States.
This year’s field will be one of the toughest yet, including one of pools hottest rising stars, Jayson Shaw, CTE/Pro One’s Stevie Moore, Rodney ‘The Rocket’ Morris and many many more.
Here’s the scoop!
POV Pool has been invited to investigate the venue for the possibility of streaming this event, live and free! It has been agreed by many that this venue is way too small and crowded, but one things for sure, POV Pool will be there to see if it’s possible to pull it off!
This stream, if it happens will be LIVE & FREE! It will probably only be the final day, so please SAVE THE DATE!
