Since 1991 the Rum Runner Lounge in Las Vegas, Nevada has honored pool player and enthusiast, Andy Mercer, with an annual 9-ball bar box tournament.  For the past 25 years, this event has drawn the best pool players from across the country, and this year March 20th – 22nd is no different.  With 10 professional players entered this year and a full field, we wonder will Shane VanBoening win for the 5th year in a row?  Or will previous title holder Ismael Paez take it, or will newcomer Rodrigo “Edgie” Geronimo rob the field?   Other professional players include, the great Mike Massey, Ernesto and Oscar Dominguez, Max Eberle, Scott Frost and Jason Klatt.

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!
