Is Scott Smith not the Tournament Director this year?


How's the attendance? Any crowds?

Scott is the MC. Ken Shuman and Buxton Turner are the Tourney Directors.

Crowds are about the same as in the past. The economy does not seem to have affected the fans coming out for this one.

Thanks, Mike.

One more question: Any comments on 12-year-old Brenden Crockett, who won one match, but reportedly has been playing pool for only 8 months?!

He looks like a mini Mike Davis! Good stroke, fairly long, albeit a slightly different tac than Mike's! ;)

I heard he was 14... There was another youngster playing at the time on the table next to Brandon. This kid couldn't have weighed more than 75 (seventy-five) pounds! He was 13 I think. Not as good a game as Brandon's, but hey, a stiff wind and this one's out the door. It was great seeing these kids. Watching the little one (I forget his name) talking with his Dad in the stands and in the vendor areas, etc was cool. The enthusiasm on his face at all the pool splendor was infectious.
