similar rules yes....

10ball is called shots - Ball in pocket. however call a safety, or just a shot and pcketing a ball. or pocketing the ball in a different pocket allows the opponent to shoot where it lies, or pass the shot back. similar to a push out after a break.

The word in Edmonton is that they may be adding up to $10,000. The organizing committee say they'll know by next week. I'll be sure to post if it really is 10k added. That should be high enough to get some talent from the east to come to oil country.:groucho:

I will find some pictures of the tables... The tables are about 6 1/2 outta 10. Diamond being 10 and OC's being an 8. They play level (last time I was there), just some problems with side pockets playing extremely tight. I will be playing this one. Started practicing this week.

Here is a picture of the type of table. They are something like the tables at OC's. Black Crown/Titan clone

Here's a picture of the tables. The hall is in an um ..... more interesting part of town where it would be best to leave your valuables in the trunk.

It is by far the best "Players" hall in the city. No brass on the bar, fancy lights or any of that, just pool mister. Thier kitchen has fairly good food.

The side pockets are tight, but the tables are level and consistant from one to the next. They are showing thier age but are for the most part well maintained.

I might come in to watch some of the tournament but usually on the weekends I have my kids, since the next weekend is Wal-mac (vnea) year end tournament I doubt I'll be able to get free.

Plus with the CCS westerns coming up in Calgary 2 or 3 weeks after that I'll have to pinch my pennies.

I'll know more closer to the event, let me know if you enter and I'll make an effort to stop in.
