The Mezz West State Tour Stop #2

A Field of 68 Players

557246_262497400505861_1138082462_n
The Mezz West State Tour kicked off its second stop of the season at Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento, CA. The beautiful room of 31 pool tables offered a premium setting for players along with bleacher seating for spectators. A big ‘thank you’ goes out to Mike and Karen Markulis and their entire staff for supporting our sport and having one of the premier rooms in the country. After a successful first stop in Los Angeles, the energy and excitement of the tour went north garnering a very strong field of 68 players who played on the very tight equipment Hard Times Sacramento had to offer. The top half of the field was littered with strong players such as returning winner of stop number one, Rodrigo Geronimo of the Philippines. San Francisco bay area resident, Jaynard Orque had a very impressive showing of smooth play with wins over Nick Callado, Oscar Dominguez, Jeff Gregory, John Henderson, before he stumbled to Ernesto Dominguez in the semis. The 59 year old Ernesto had a 1985 flashback winning matches with excellent safety play and decision making. Ernesto won the hot seat over the always dangerous Los Angeles player, Ramin Bakhtiari.

In the true double elimination format, Jaynard easily ran away with the first set and defeated Ernesto hill-hill in a tense battle in set number two. The Filipino young gun demonstrated a solid game on extremely challenging equipment and earned $1400 for his efforts. Ernesto settled for $1000.

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!

This year’s main sponsor or the event will be none other than Southern California’s West State Billiards, located in Fullerton, CA – Operating since 1946, West State Billiards will be providing brand new 860 Simonis Brand cloth for 20 tables, soon to be installed by the Dominguez Family (Ernesto and Oscar). 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.
