Scott Frost vs Alex Pagulayan big action match in Vegas has to be one of the best one pocket matches ever caught on video 5 days with two of the best players in the world.

Very high quality and some great Commentary from Scott Rabon, Billy Incardona, Jay Helfert and many other special guests

Contact Big Truck about getting the video.

2006 DCC semifinals. Alex played flawless, creative, aggressive 1P, and smiled as his friend Efren mugged him.

i agree about bigtruck videos! they are great!

another good accu stats video is the Danny Smith vs. Efren Reyes match during the make it happen event recently. it was the semi-final match not the rematch at the finals.

The one where Scott intentionally deflected a moving ball to his gole, then lied to Alex about it when asked?

caught on tape.

I recently bought this. It is great, but not sold on DVD. You need to send Ray a 64 Gig flash drive and use that. He transfers to your flash drive. It is a great match and great deal.

I have enough High level one pocket matches that you could start watching now and never finish them all :D 2 high level events coming up too. One in Memphis, Tn in December and one in New Orleans in January.

We also try to make them educational with commentary from guys like Scott Rabon, Nick Varner, Jeremy Jones, Danny Smith, Bill Incardona etc.

You can contact me by email to setup a time we can talk about matches.

My favorite is an old one. Its Jimmy Fusco vs Jim Rempe, in a Legend of One Pocket tournament. Accu-Stats has it. Freddie Bentivegna is the commentator. I like it because of the strategy employed by Fusco, and talked about by Bentivegna.

There is also one Shane vs Efren I saw in person at the DCC. Think it was 2013 year. Efren had Shane pretty good in a game, I think leading 7-0. Shane got out from nowhere, starting with a tough bank instead of a straight in shot, in order to run the whole rack.

Buddy Hall vs Jeremy Jones 1P98-08

This was a very good match from the past, kind of, depending how old you are. hahah

"It was touted in the accu-stats catalog as the best played match of the event with Hall and Jones jousting on the hill".

If you watch closely you will see Buddy keep a free ball that dropped on his side in the upper corner pocket several innings earlier.

All of the matches from last year's Smokin Aces 6k entry one pocket event that Efren won 25k 1st are great matches.

And the after hours Action match at Smokin Aces after the tournament that Frost vs Efren race to 10 was one of the best matches i have ever seen it goes hill hill and the play the last few games was amazing.

Dear "White 1,"

You have to make a distinction between two meanings of "one-pocket." One meaning of "one pocket" is what we could call "Alex Pagulayan one-pocket," in which you beat your opponent to a shot in about the seventh or eighth inning of each game and then you, without apparent effort, run eight and out, or even nine or ten and out. Most of us can't play that kind of one-pocket, and, while we can enjoy it and appreciate the skill of it, we can't transfer very much of it to our own games.

The other kind of one-pocket is the kind in which someone gets two or three balls ahead, moves some balls up table, then has his opponent try to put him in a position in which the opponent has a ball near his hole and shielded. Or maybe bank paths have to be opened up. Or the question becomes what you do when there are three balls on the table and you need two and your opponent needs one. We could call this "Fallible Human Being One Pocket." This is the kind of one-pocket most of us play, and watching pros play it can produce knowledge we can actually apply to our own play.

For this second kind of one-pocket, there are two wonderful commentators. They both offer top drawer analysis. (Or, as we used to say in the bad old days of pool silence, "They give it away.") And their names are Billy Incardona and Freddy Bentivegna.

Keep in mind that when you buy a dvd of a billiards match, you are at least as much interested in the commentators as your are in who is playing, probably more.

And, by the way, "I Used to be Rich" is exactly right about the Fusco/Rempe match, and you get Freddy Bentivegna's commentary as a premium bonus. So I second "Thomas McKane" from above!

This was the very first pool match I saw. I watched some of Efren's shots over and over, trying to figure out how he escaped trap after trap. He became my favorite player and one-pocket my favorite game to sweat.

Anyone that loves one pocket should watch as many different types of players as possible.
I enjoy watching Efren Cliff Alex Scott Shane Shannon Jeremy Jones John Schmidt Corey, Raphael Martinez and a bunch of others from modern era and I love to watch Buddy Grady Billy Nick Varner I've heard about the Ronnie Allen Diliberto tapes but I have never seen them,{if someone has them I am interested}
Hopkins played great but it never seemed like he was doing anything , he just seemed to win a lot lol.
Too bad there aren't videos of Jersey Red, Squirell Cornbead and some of those guys when they were in their primes.

One of my favorite accustats vids is slivka v. Parica, c. 1997. One pocket us open, or worlds, I dunno.

What a contrast...slive come out and grabs parica by the throat and rules him, the Jose comes back.

For freebies, csi's 2011 videos are hard to beat and the ones with billy I, Scott frost and Deuel in the booth are great.

Also excellent are the California billiards 1p matches. Pagulayan/ shuff is a particular fave. Be sure to watch the last minut, when Corey steps in to ask Alex whe he passed a freebie :eek:

A few years back I made a big score at poker and bought myself a treat of every 1p match on accu-stats. Had to be over 100 DVDs. Obviously any tape with Efren, Daulton, Pagulayan, Varner, Frost, Parica, Shane or Joyner are great of course.

One of my favorite players to watch, as far as learning how to move, is Steve Cook. He plays the game extremely intelligently and is able to control much better players due to his superior moving ability.

If you want some tapes of the best display of 1p skill caught on tape you need to get all of Efren's matched from the US Open 1p in the year he played Jason Miller in the finals. His last day of play was the most overpowering display of skill in pool I've ever seen. He played a string of top 10 players and made it look like he could have played them 12-6 and manhandled them.

Steve Cook made the nicest take-out I ever saw...it was on one of the Accustats videos.
...he was in jail and moved 5 or 6 balls and stuck whitey.
...that one shot is worth the video.

I haven't watched tons of 1P but I have the Efren/Alex match from DCC and it is sick.

On a side note, a couple of years back I saw an old video on YouTube of Efren playing Grady and in it Efren keeps sticking the cue ball in the stack over and over from different places to the point where it becomes almost comical. I cant seem to find it anywhere. Just wondering if anyone knows which match I'm referring to or where to find it.

Efren was in top form that year.

Efren vs Daulton at DCC last year was also excellent, a contrast between "power one pocket" and old school. Efren played his usual outstanding defense waiting for the impatient young guy to make a mistake and then ran out every time he had a chance.

I'll add Efren vs Corey, I think it was a semi-final, went hill-hill... Corey had two balls by his hole, Efren does a beautiful takeout, AND blocks a bank back... Corey tries a risky/stupid shot, Efren runs three and out... a lesson on being patient!
