View Full Version : BCA Open - Some of What I've seen

Sharing some of what I saw Monday form the women's draw ------

Paglia's win over Karen Corr was the big story of the day, and Angel was very sharp in this one.

Melissa Little had Allison Fisher in big trouble, ahead by 6 - 2, but Allison ralied to win the next few racks, to go up 7 - 6. When Little missed a seven ball where she appeared about to tie it 7 - 7, that was it, with Allison prevailing by 9 - 6. Vintage Allison down the stretch.

Wendy Jans played outstanding pool in trouncing Tiffany Nelson. Jans made an amost impossible runout at 5 - 2 and coasted after what I thought was the defining rack of the match.

All this aside, the lasting impression for me was watching Jasmin Ouschan's incredible effort in a 9 - 0 dismantling of Alice Rim. Ouschan's game has developed since last year, and I see her playing with far more attention to detail than ever before. It's difficult to know whether Jasmin can sustain this level of play, but if she can, she's among those with a chance to win this title.

On the men's side:

Hopkins had a 10 - 1 lead on Reyes and had numerous chances to close it out. Reyes got it to 10 - 10, but when Efren scratched on the double hill break it appeared Allen would escape. As there was a cluster on the table, Allen opted for a one nine combo, a shot I reckon he should make two times out of three, but hit it poorly. Reyes still had a tough run to negotiate with a cluster to break out along the way, but rose to the occasion for the shocking comeback win, 11 - 10.

Roschkowski vs Immonen was a good one. Each had some issues with their break, but they really played like champions up to 7 - 7. A couple of uncharacteristic erros by Mika down the stretch , a missed eight ball in particular, ended up costing Mika the match, with Roschkowskli a deserving winner.

Hohmann didn't showed his best against Ernesto Dominguez, but played well enough to get through in a match not really as close as the 11 - 9 score would suggest.

My first look at Kuo was uninspiring. He was very sloppy in his 11 - 8 win over Tony Robles, who never really got started in that match. Pei Wei Chang has a lot of game, and Satoshi Kawabata is playing great pool. I didn't get to catch Dennis Orcullo, but hope to see him play Reyes today.

Don't expect too many updates, as I don't have a laptop. I'm posting from a lobby kiosk at the Riviera. Still, I'll do what I can.

A quick look at the brackets would certainly indicate the younger ladies are ready to make their move, something I would attribute to them having a little more experience now on the WPBA. The crop of great players under 25 is great for the future of the WPBA IMO, the most exciting of these young players has to be the young Austrian Jasmin Ouschan, damn can this girl shoot! More impessive than her skill, has to be her attitude and willingness to improve, a trait that boldly reminds me of Thorsten Hohmann in his earlier pre-WPC days. The sky is truly the limit for her and the others as well, it will be very interesting to see how this crop of young players performs the rest of the week.

Women's Draw:

The Fishers were the story on Tuesday.

Allison Fisher lost the safety battle in the double hill rack with Pan, who face what I'd call an 80% runout, but when Pan faltered, Allison ran out.

Megan Minerich had a surprisingly easy time with Kelly Fisher and had a chance to run out for a 9-5 victry, but when she faltered, Kelly dug down deep to pull it out 9-8.

Pan had company, as it was a very tough day for two other up and comers, too.

Ouschan scratched while pocketing a ball in each of the first two racks to fall 2-0 down to Herndon, and not long after that, it was 4-0 Herndon. Ouschan rallied and was even at 5-5, but Herndon played exceptional pool down the stretch for a well deserved 9-5 victory. Ouschan's speed control was generally poor throughout the match, and it cost her big time.

Wendy Jans had her chances against Jennifer Chen. Three balls from going up 5-2, she had a very careless scratch on a 7 ball, and the match turned. A missed eight ball could have gotten Jans to 6-6, but the error proved costly, and Chen cruised from there for the 9-5 win.

Archer vs Kuo was magnficent. Here's how it went. JA is Archer, PK is Po Cheng Kuo. Two great players playing at an extremely high level.

1. JA miss of a 4 leaves it hanging but PK has to jump it in even though it's deep in the pocket. PK is up to it, making a fantastic shot, and runs out PK 1-0
2. PK break and run, PK 2-0
3. JA misses makable mnasse on 3 ball, leading to safety battle, controlled and won by PK, PK 3-0.
4. Poor push by PK given back by JA and PK unable to excute safety, selling out. PK 3-1
5. JA break and run, PK 3-2.
6. Fine shot on the 2 by PK, but unlucky scratch sells out. 3-3
7. Dry break by JA leaves good chance for PK, but he fails to run out, so JA 4-3.
8. PK break and run, 4-4.
9. JA break and run, JA 5-4
10. PK break and run, 5-5
11. Dry break by JA but PK misses 2, sells out, JA 6-5.
12. JA makes a magnificent jump in of 1 after dry break by PK. Shot of the match! JA 7-5.
13. JA break and run, JA 8-5
14. PK break and run, JA 8-6
15. JA break and run. JA 9-6.
16. PK break s them well, but a shocking miss of an easy 2 ball sells out. JA 10-6
17. JA break and run ens the match, 11-6

This was Archer at his very best!

In other men's action, Charlie Williams played near flawless pool in building a 9-3 lead over Shawn Putnam and cruised to victory.

That's all for now!

I see Ralph play Corey next round. I remember the last time they played in NY, not only did corey stop Ralphs cb when he practised a lag but he also spent what seemed like ages checking Ralphs rack at hill-hill. Complete gamesmanship and the first tack of the match he'd checked of course. Needless to say Ralph was livid after Corey fluked the 9 ball to win 11-10!

Not only did Ralph vow never to play him again without a Referee but also that he'd hit him if he did it again lol!

SJM, make sure you watch this one, I know you love watching Ralph anyway.

PS
Fellow Brits and friends Lee Chenman and Toncy C play each other on the losers side and my old mate Dave R from Sydney spanked Santos 11-3!!! :eek:

Well played Dave!

Oh this was hilarious! At my last event in April for a BCA Qualifier it was down to Pam vs Caroline for it in the finals. Now Gina's all upset because if Caroline wins the Q, her team is screwed. So during the finals a certain someone called up Gina and was reporting a fictitious score that Caroline was on the hill and was basically messing with Gina. I was laughing so hard I screwed up and laughed out loud and blew it!

I'm not sure who else is on their team, but it should be a good one!

Just a few tidbits from Kim Davenport vs Pei Wei Chang - despite not having a single break and run in the entire match, Davenport fought the good fight and was four balls from 9 - 9 when he missed an easy five. It turned out to be the very last shot he hit ibn this event, as Chang broke and ran the next one for the 11-8 win. It was a strange match featuring shaky offensive execution but stellar defense and kicking.

Watching Varner vs. Hopkins, some twenty eight years after the first time I saw them play against each other (of course, it was straight pool back then), was a treat, but the match wasn't especially interesting, with Varner moving on.

Karen Corr vs Tracie Hines was even less interesting as Karen, for the first time in the event, looked like the #2 player in the world. Of course, the great ones get stronger as any event wears on, so no real surprise here.

Jeanette Lee vs Loree Jon Jones was a good watch. Lee missed a three ball with a chance to go up 7 - 2, and not long after that, they were knotted at 7-7. Lee played well in the last two racks for the 9-7 win.

Enjoyed watching Charlie "Hillbilly" Bryant. I only saw the later stages, but the Hillbilly won over Wilkinson, as always, with style.

Max Eberle seems to have turned it around and now appears to be playing well.

In the view of this AZ Poster, Archer, Hohmann, abnd Souquet are showing the strongest from to this point in the men's draw.

The women's draw is a little tougher to call, but Allison Fisher and Kelly fisher have struggled a bit. Hofstatter seems to be playing well, but nobody appears to be in their strongest from, and tonight should clarify what's going on with the women.

I'm out of gas, but before I go to sleep, I'll note that Corr leads Calhoun by 6-5, Varner is on the hill with a big lead and every other match has finished.

This was a great session!

On the men's side, Deuel vs Souquet was a classic. The play was only ordinary up to 5-5, but both caught a stroke simultaneously, and the next nine racks had a break and run. A two-man nine pack that gave Deuel a 10-9 lead, but Souquet leveled and surely Deuel would close it out with what would be his sixth straight break and run. Right? Wrong! Deuel made a ball on the break, but had to bank the one cross side and missed it. Ralf's runout sealed the deal, 11-10. What a match!

Equally exciting was Williams vs Hohmann, where a missed nine ball by Thorsten gave Williams some breathing room, making it 6-4 instead of 5-5. Charlie hung the five at 9-7, however, and Thorsten managed to get it to double hill. Charlie owned the double hill break, and played well but missed shape on the nine and had to play a very missable shot. charlie hit it superbly, though, for a well-deserved 11-10 victory.

Archer continues to play great, but trailed in the early stages against Parica before finding his best game, after which he was brilliant.

Putnam vs Pei Wei chang was a great disappointment, in which neither played well, but Chang had a little more form late in the match and got through.

On the women's side, Shin Mei Liu continues to play very consistently, as she showed in a convincing win over Kelly Fisher. Allison Fisher played well, though Jennifer chen was way off her form in an uninspiring blowout win for Allison.

Ouschan vs Dawn Hopkins was a great one. Hopkins played superbly all the way up to 8-5, but a bad roll in the 8-6 rack ensured the match would go double hill. Hopkins owned the break, and broke them well, but missed the one and Ouschan ran out for the memorable comeback win.

An exceptional effort was turned in by Pam Treadway against an in-form Wendy Jans. Trailing 5-2, Pam played her way back into the match with a superb long bank of the six ball, and played beautiful pool from that point forward to secure the win.

Finally, Jeanette Lee had a fairly easy go of it against Rousey, and Ellerby was exceptional in eliminating Barretta, and Tiffany Nelson was rock solid in a blowout win over Julie Kelly.

I think I'll go to sleep!

Only because that was what SJM originally reported that she had won...
I know now he was mistaken. You are suppose to have finished in the the top 30 I think to become a "Master" but they made both Kelly Fisher and Kim Shaw play in the masters, so I thought maybe because of Caroline's NEWT Tour win she was put into the Masters too....?

The open players are people who haven't placed higher than 30. I'm not sure how the BCA determines someone who is known but hasn't played in the BCA before. Just as a note, Sharon Weis also played in the Open. I believe Caroline beat her for 5/6th...

It's all very subjective.

When Kim Shaw entered the 8-ball Open field, John Lewis took her out and placed her in the Masters division. I asked John why he did that and he said that because she was a snooker player and he researched her tournament finishes. Of course, Kim went on to win the Masters singles.

I'm surprised Caroline wasn't in the Masters singles, too. Hasn't finished in the top 17 in the Open which then moves you up to the Masters division?

05-18-2006, 10:40 AM
Just back from Vegas. I'm exhausted. :)

If you place the top 4% in the open, you are moved up to Master's. However, the BCA can move you up to Master's or Grand Master's based on your history by their discretion. For instance, Tara McCracken was placed in the Grand Master's without ever finishing high in the Open, so she challenged it and was dropped to the Master's. By the way, her and Gordy Van DerVeer placed 2nd in the Master Scotch Doubles!

Caroline Pao played in the open division and placed 2nd in the singles and first in the Scotch Doubles. Because of her success on the NEWT tour, I heard several people say they thought she should have been in the Master's.

I'd like to send a shout out to a poster here, Shayla Neris, who placed 3rd in the Open Scotch Doubles with her boyfriend Corey Dordek. Congrat's, Shayla, on a great finish!

Even though most of the names are misspelled, it's still cool to see that these players placed high (most of the top two or three received a plaque). I just wish it stated which finish the person in the photo placed.

I agree with Mike. Because of Caroline's skill level (which is close to Pam Treadway, who played in the pro division), and her high finishes in several east coast events, she should have had to play in the master's division.
Someone let this slip by. Perhaps Mark Griffin will comment...
