Dennis Orcollo and Carlo Biado arrived yesterday from Manila. First things first and they hit the table immediately for some practice, finally calling it quits at like 4 AM (7 PM Manila time). In the morning they got up, went to breakfast and brought back enough food to feed an army. I will be eating good this week!

Mika decided to come by for a little warm-up session with Dennis. They decided to start out with a little cheap One Pocket, Race to Three for some pocket change. Started out all fun and games, but pretty soon it was getting intense. These guys are both champions and both WANT TO WIN! First set went 2-2 in games and 7-7 in ball count in the final game. Doesn't get much closer than that. They must have played 15-20 minutes on that last ball before Dennis finally made it. That set took over two hours. They played three more sets before calling it quits with Dennis coming out on top.

Some pretty good practice, maybe six hours worth. I sweated parts of it as I went about my daily chores. I will try to post a photo on here if I can. Two warriors at work! Mika just broke here, got a couple of balls and now Dennis is looking at his options.

Thanks for sharing Jay, you lucky sob!

How long are you steering these champs around LA?

And hey, what happened to your pinball machine that had all the dvd's underneath?

Bartram stepping up. 9-7 is not much weight.

:confused: when does he ever step down ;) . 9-7 is not much weight might be the famous last words of many backers.

"Nut up or shut up" as they say.

You already know this, but giving up a ball in one hole can go either way. Unlike giving up a ball in 9/10ball.

I've seen guys out run the nuts giving up 10-5 or more and I've seen the same two guys play 9-7 and it go the other way.

Either way, it would be an awesome streamed match!

That's Dennis' check from the U.S. Open One Pocket last year. I tried to cash it but no luck. :o

Tell them I will take 13-5 and drive down from the Bay Area. Race to 8 for $1000

Jesse you're relentless. I like that about you, but c'mon 13-5! Try not to be such a nut artist. The right game is more like 9-5 and 10-6 and that's close. You forgot I saw you play and I clocked your game. Dennis gives me 8-5 when we practice and I win games. Okay? He's good but he's not superman!
