Good Timez Billiards – Las Vegas, NV
Author: Geraldine Thibodeau
POV Pool and Good Timez Billiards in Las Vegas bring you the One-Pocket match up you’ve been waiting for, Francisco “Django” Bustamante vs. Tony “T-Rex” Chohan. Ok, maybe you haven’t been waiting for it, since you don’t normally consider Francisco Bustamante as a 1-Pocket player; but some inside sources say the pool-world is in for a big surprise!
We all know that Tony Chohan has been in the One-Pocket news lately. Chohan took first place at Buffalo Billiard’s, defeating Danny Smith, Alex Pagulayan, and Scott Frost. Invited to the Accu-Stats “Make it Happen” event, Chohan beat Pagulayan the first round of round robins, but was defeated by Jeremy Jones and then by Shane Van Boening. He came back to defeat Danny Smith in the final round of play, though. Some say he is the next big One-Pocket leader, but could it be possible that, after this particular matchup with ‘Django’, you could all end up scratching your heads – ‘Efren’ style?
Francisco Bustamante is primarily known as a strong rotation player and not for his One-Pocket knowledge, but that doesn’t mean Bustamante doesn’t know the game. Over his 42 years of playing (it is said that he began playing at the age of 10), Bustamante has acquired many accolades and has been considered one of the world’s best cue sports players. This being said, with his cue ball control, precise ball pocketing and enormous championship persona, he won’t be letting this match-up slide out of his hands. He’s a BCA Hall of Famer, a 2012 West Coast Challenge One Pocket Champion after besting, Scott Frost, Corey Deuel and John Schmidt. Busti is also a 2013 Derby City ‘Master of the Table’ where he took 1st place in the ‘Banks’ division and 2nd place in the One-Pocket division. Let’s not get the ball twisted too much in Chohan’s favor, folks. A winning ‘hot streak’ is one thing, but compared to years of all around success against the unshakeable Bustamante, Chohan is going to have to dig in, get his ‘GameTight’ or swallow a dose of the ‘Django’ medicine.
True Story: In 2007, Francisco Bustamante played in the Hard Times Billiards (Sacramento) Summer Jamboree. In the One-Pocket tournament, Bustamante played a young 26 year old, Tony Chohan to send him to the one-loss side. Tony Chohan made his way through the scenic route to play Bustamante in the finals, just to be defeated again and take second place.
