Chuck Markulis Memorial

Posted 08-11-2009 at 05:17 PM by Tom In Cincy

As much as I am looking forward to seeing all my friends and fellow pool players at this event this weekend, I am still saddened by the loss of my friend Chuck Markulis.

Chuck was one of the most memorable men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with in my life.

I still miss him and sometimes hear his voice in the crowds at Hard Times.

He was a true friend of the pool players and enjoyed what he did.

No one left Hard...

Aug Monthly One Pocket and 9 Ball events

Posted 08-04-2009 at 11:54 AM by Tom In Cincy

Well, Aug 1st and 2nd were the last two days of the Summer's guaranteed bonus added money for the One Pocket and 9 Ball events.
The $500 added 1Pkt and $1000 added 9Ball events had 28 and 42 players entered respectively.

Rafael Martinez won both events and a hefty chunk of change. Thanks Rafael for making the tournament finals exciting. What a player.

More Heat in Sacramento

Posted 06-30-2009 at 02:22 PM by Tom In Cincy

But not as much... it is currently 88 degrees, just 20 degrees cooler than Sunday.

Tuesday and Thursday are 8 Ball line tournaments at Hard Times. The Summer brings out the bar league players to enjoy the 9 foot table competition for 2.5 hours for $10 and usually they have a better than even chance of winning some $$$

Saturday and Sunday are the Monthly One Pocket and 9 ball events. $500 added for 1pkt and $1000 added for 9 ball. both guaranteed.

Happy...

Heat...

Posted 06-29-2009 at 09:26 AM by Tom In Cincy

Yesterday Sacramento broke a record by reaching 108 degrees... the previous recorded HOT temperature on this date was 104.
IT WAS VERY HOT FOR JUNE 28th.

It is suppose to be getting better this week and be in the low 90s for July 4th... yeah!!!

Rain is not an option... I can't remember the last time it rained in Sacramento...

It is too dry to sweat... LOL

It is a good day, Tuesday.. but HOT. in the high 90s at 1pm and approaching triple digits later in the afternoon.

No tournament tonight, but I will be going to Hard Times to play on the newly recovered tables by Oscar and Pops Dominguez.

I love playing on new cloth. It is one of Pool's little pleasures that last for a few weeks and then back to the NORMAL playing conditions. Retail pool play is real tough on cloth and it wears quickly.

More about Pocket Billiards

Posted 06-10-2009 at 02:47 PM by Tom In Cincy

It is somewhat rewarding to post my opinions and have respectable comments which continue to support my opinions and/or help change them for the better.

AZ has some great players and posters. A great source of info.

I woulld like to take this opportunity to say HI

Posted 04-09-2009 at 04:02 PM by Tom In Cincy

First time BLOGGER, long time LURKER/Posters/Chat member.

I first started reading AZ Billiards back in those days before BLOGs/Twitter/YouTube/Myspace/FaceBook and of course Streaming Video and TAG.

How did I get along without those things then?

Still playing, running tournaments and learning about Pocket Billiards.
