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

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

————————————-

Pool’s new rising star from the Philippines, Carlo Biado, will be traveling to the United States next week for several months and has very quickly been scheduled to headline in an action packed, 2-day double-header billiards match against The Mosconi Cup, ‘Team USA’ player, Dennis Hatch on February 18th, 2014 at 5:00 pm PST (February 19th, 9:00 am UTC). The event will be a an exclusive, live broadcast available all over the world on Point Of View Pool’s, Internet live-streaming website at www.povpool.com via ‘Pay Per View’.

Playing the best of 49 games of 10-Ball, or a ‘race to 25’ games, against Dennis Hatch, Carlo may have his hands full against this veteran player, who has been known to compete at Hard Times Billiards as far back as 20 years and who was recently streamed online by POV Pool, beating Francisco Bustamante during the Hard Times 10-Ball event in July 2013. Meanwhile, we are sure that Biado will have no worries taking on “The Hatchetman!”, who played at the same event and placed 1st out of 104 players, besting the world renowned, Alex Pagulayan, 11 games to 1 in the finals.

Carlo’s match, will be the headliner of 2 matches, the first of which is an ‘undercard’ match between POV Pool’s owner, Daniel Busch and world renowned, British pool/snooker coach and billiards instruction author, Lee Brett (“The Secret Art Of Pool”).

POV Pool’s owner, Daniel Busch states, “(Carlo) Biado is truly an amazing talent and a great gift to the pool community! This will be the 2nd installment of an ‘Action Match’ series, produced by POV Pool. I am honored to showcase some of the world’s greatest talents coming out of the Philippines and from all over the world! POV Pool is working very hard to create the best possible production and high quality entertainment by broadcasting with multiple, hi-definition cameras and featuring one of pool’s star commentators, Jay Helfert.”

Additional Matches and details provided below… 

Day – 1  / Lee Brett vs Daniel Busch!

Famed pool coach and former ‘Bonus Ball’ referee, Lee Brett has agreed to compete against Daniel Busch of POV Pool in a 9-Ball battle for a ‘winner take all’ purse of $2,000. It’ll be a fast and loose race of the best of 59 games and will start at 5:oo pm Pacific Standard Time / 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Commentators Jay Helfert and Beau Runningen will commentate the match and a referee has yet to be named for the event. Matches of this proportion in the U.S. are traditionally a casual affair but Point Of View Pool is mandating that players bring a touch of class to this event by competing in formal attire. It will be reminiscent of the old school of billiards and today’s snooker competitions. Yes folks, vests and bow-ties will be required. Additional cameras and support staff are also being used to capture the drama for viewers.

Day – 2  / Dennis Hatch vs Carlo Biado! 

Dennis Hatch, making a strong comeback in the pool-world as of late, he has competed in a handful of top independent events, such as the Crooks & Castles sponsored ‘Hard Times 10-Ball’ Tournament and recently played with Team USA in the 25th Annual Mosconi Cup Event in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Tuesday, February 18th, also at 5:00 pm PST, Dennis will be matching up with none other than the newest pool sensation from the Philippines, Carlo Biado in a grueling race to 25 games, playing 10-Ball – a ‘call pocket’ format ‘rotation’ game, which Carlo took the prize of 1st place in the aforementioned Crooks & Castles event.
