Efren Reyes on POVPOOL

Tuesday – October 13th @ 3:00 PM / PST

One Pocket Match with Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes Races to 3 for $100 against POVPOOL’s, Daniel Busch. Played on table 6 at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California – Spectators welcome. Free entry! 

Warmup at 2pm / PST – Match begins at 3:00 PM / PSTHard Times Billiards Bellflower

Efren “Bata” Reyes battles POVPOOL playing 1-pocket.  The 70+ title champion takes on Daniel Busch, the zero title champion (unless you consider the numerous weekly wins at The Golden Cue).  You hear Daniel commentate time and time again and now is your time to take to the commentary in the chatroom 3pm PST on Tuesday, October 13th with ‘Box’ Patterson, Wayne Pullen and Ken Hoshide providing audio commentary.  Although, Daniel is practicing and gearing up for the match, I’m pretty sure Efren is enjoying a chess match somewhere, wondering who the next victim will be.  Efren will be spotting Daniel 10-7, so tune in tomorrow and root for our very own, Mr. Busch, in the match of his lifetime, as he challenges Efren to the game of 1-pocket.   Watch it On YouTube!

Joe Martin’s 3rd Annual One-Pocket Tournament!

$1,500 Added – 32 Players

The 3rd Annual, $1,500 Added Joe Martin One-Pocket Tournament happening this October 12th & 13th at Stix Billiards in Rancho Cucamonga, CA approaches! In the past 3 years in Southern California, Joe Martin Promotions has contributed over $10,000 in support of numerous women’s 9-Ball and One-Pocket events. Earlier this year it came to my attention that Joe recently suffered a stroke and was forced to take some time out from promoting in order to recover. POV Pool has had the pleasure of working with Mr. Martin to live stream at least four of his events to audiences on www.povpool.com and will once again join forces with Joe and Stix’s owner, Alex Laoingco to provide yet another free live stream! Wishing Joe the best of health and a full recovery, we look forward to this event which, despite the absence of a few due to the US Open 9-Ball event, should be an exciting field.

‘One-Pocket’ Rich – “I gotta hitch!” 

2-time consecutive champion, ‘One-Pocket Rich’ Grenier is expected to defend his title and in the past 20 years, Rich has played and beat them all for the cash; is arguably known as one of the top-20 best and most knowledgable one-pocket players in the United States. Ike Runnels from Chicago has never beat him, he’s recently taken down Sylver Ochoa and Scott Frost in a slightly weighted game and is feared by all at his home pool room in Santa Monica where he’s been playing for over 2 decades.    Richard Grenier

Although all eyes will be on Rich to beat the field in this year’s event, his recent admission of a newly developed ‘hitch’ in his stroke is forcing him to resort to taking many of his shots by switching from right to left-handed play. Asked whether he thinks this will be an issue this year, he says, “It’s a little embarrassing, but it’s true. I can’t shoot shots the way I used to because of this damn hitch. There are certain shots where I have to draw the cue ball about 3 or 4 inches and I have to switch to left-hand. It’s affecting my confidence, which in turn affects the way I play overall.”

Well players, there’s a little irony to this tale for those of you that thinks you’ll have an edge on Rich. He’s also ambidextrous! Be warned not to take his knowledge of the game and his penchant for playing ‘lefty’ for granted! This could be one of the best ‘stalls’ from a champion I’ve seen in awhile.

Live Streaming Support From Kamui!

Gator Grip Gator Grip2

With the help and support of POV Pool’s longtime sponsor Kamui Tips, we will be able to provide this live stream for FREE, with the added incentive for viewers to support POV Pool through donations instead of Pay Per View. This was initially slated as a PPV event, yet we also realize that it may be too risky to invest in a Pay Per View Broadcast who’s final matches will coincide with the opening day of The US Open 9-Ball event taking place in Virginia on October 13th. A very small part of POV Pool’s income is generated through donations from viewers, but for this stream Kamui is offering viewers a chance to receive any one of 5 Kamui Gator Grips in return for those donations to POV Pool which exceed $35. And, since there are only 5 Gator Grips being randomly drawn before the final match of the event, all other donations of $35 or more will receive a Kamui Tip Voucher as consolation. Either way, it is once again a win/win scenario provided by Kamui Products and POV Pool in an effort to continue providing live streams to those who can’t afford it via Pay Per View and during times when events like this may be double booked with others.

Kamui_logoBlack

POV Pool thanks John Bertone, Kamui and all of the viewers in advance for their generous support and encouragement to me for continuing my efforts and keeping POV Pool alive!

There is virtually nothing that I wouldn’t do for the billiard community as long as there is an audience helping us move forward. I have not backed off my commitment to improving the broadcast quality or the presentation of this great game and I also feel that streaming pool is but the tip of the iceberg.  kamui voucher

Spots Still Available! 

There are still spots open for this event. Entry fee is only $40 which, for a chance to match up with the likes of players like John Schmidt, Wayne Pullen, Frank ‘Da Barber” Almanza, Fach Garcia, James Burden, Bernardo ‘King Kong’ Chavez and many other of SoCal’s strongest, is a small price to pay. Format will be Double Eliminations, race to 2 on both sides. $1,500 Added based on full field!

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.

POV Pool managed to stream 6 matches will are being posted to YouTube. POV Pool would also like to thank, Frank Almanza, Jerry Matchin, Wayne Pullen, Melissa Herndon, Eddie Assisten, Marie Lim and Eddie Cohen for taking the time out to join us in the booth for their fine commentary on these matches.

POV Pool will return to Stix Billiards on July 14th & 15th, 2012 for live streaming of the So Cal Ladies, 9 Ball Tour Stop #3 which is owned and organized by Melissa Herndon and Sponsored by Tiger Billiard Products.

POV Pool is proudly sponsored by Kamui Tips, who will also be holding the Kamui “Pay Or Play Pool” Event in Tunica, Mississippi later this month which will be held on 10ft Diamond Tables and streamed, live by Inside Pool. Be sure to check out www.payorplaypool.com  for more details.
