Richard Grenier Reigns As Stix Billiards’ 2012, One-Pocket Champion!

Early Morning: June  17th, 2012

Richard Grenier AKA “One-Pocket Rich” manages to defend his One-Pocket title as a 2-time Champion of the Joe Martin Sponsored, One-Pocket Event which was held at Stix Billiards in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

“Man I had to play champions all the way through this thing!”, exclaims Rich who started off his day beating Victorville’s John Schmidt, the legend – Jose Parica, tough Hard Times player – Larry (Motto), Wayne Pullen and then finally onto the final match to play Oscar Dominguez who had just finished an astounding 4 and a half hour match with Santos Sambajon.

“My toughest match was with Larry who had me 2-1 and after I caught up with him I had a chance to close it out when he scratched and all I needed was two balls but then I scratched.”

Luckily for Rich, Larry didn’t close out either and after a final 25 minute battle, Rich was able to eliminate Larry and move on to Wayne Pullen who also plays regularly out of Santa Monica’s House Of Billiards establishment.

A big thanks goes out to Alex and all the staff of Stix Billiards for holding the event which hosted 35 players and a plethora of railbirds. Thanks also to long-time supporter and sponsor of the event, Joe Martin who added the $1,000 to the prize fund which attracted players from SoCal’s best pool halls which include, Gary’s Victor Billiards, Stix in Ventura, Butera’s Billiards, Santa Monica House Of Billiards, Hard Times Billiards – Bellflower, and even Danny K’s in Orange, CA.
