The action is soo goooood at the event that everyone is in action. Besides the action with the big dogs I even saw an APA Hcp. 6 playing a guy for a G a game in 8-ball. I was standing there drooling. The best part is that the APA player was up 3 games when I left.

If you like to sweat the action you need to get to the POOL ROOM. It's only going to get better as the weekend nears.

How is this for tough action; a buddy of mine that is playing in the tourney told me that the match between Stevie and Mark Gregory was 5 ahead for $5000 in one pocket, EVEN! Mark plays jam up one hole and Stevie doesn't play one pocket, but he was torching Mark when my friend left. Stevie won the first 4 games and Mark had negative balls in two of the games. Pretty damn strong for someone that doesn't even play one hole. I'm not sure whether he won or not , but I assume that he probably did. Also, Josh Arieh had another 3K on the side in that match. I will be there Saturday and might play golf with Corey, Johnny, Gabe, and maybe Schmidt if anyone wants to bet on that action.

Who won the match between Stevie and Mark? I think I saw the second game and Stevie won that. I can't remember how much they were playing for either.

There is going to be some killer action at this event. Especially with Josh Aria there. And with him there you can count on hearing 2 words all night with him. "Bet It"

They were playing 5 ahead. Stevie won 4 in a row to be on the hill with the break. Everyone thought it was over. However, Mark came back and won 7 in a row. WOW.

Mark eventually won the set. What a comeback!

John,
Sorry Israel and I didn't make it. I have been running back and forth to a Cancer Center in Mississippi with my wife. Got back Tuesday night and could shut the shop down these three weekdays. Got to go back Saturday. I haven't been out playing much since she got sick. Tell everyone hello for me.

Right now Chris "The Miz" Bartram is negotiating a game with Angry for 3 dimes. The Miz gets to play the ghost on a Diamond table that is tighter than your high school girlfriend.

They just started. The Miz from Columbus, OH is playing thye ghost for 2beans per game. Angry from the mean streets of Atlanta is backing the ghost. The Miz won the 1st 2 then lost the 3rd.

One of the gaffs to the bet is that Jason Klatt from Canada gets to break for the Miz. Jason has a fairly powerful break and seems to always make at least 1 ball but leaves at least one cluster.

Whoops, back 2 even.

In the meantime, The HAT, Brian Capps from NC is in the back room playing short races with Brandon Shuff from Toledo, Oh for 2beans per game. Shuff was the winner of last weekends Viking Tour event at Davey K's in Toledo. Being from OH I have seen Brandon Brandon play over the last few years. All I can say is, WOW, his game came a long way. He is beating a guy even who the last time I played gave me the break and 5 out and beat me to death over in Greenville, SC.

In the meantime the Miz is now down 1 game but he has an easy 3 ball out. Seven straight in the corner., stop the CB 8 opposite corner, stop or draw the CB. WHOOPS, the MIZ hung 7. This table might just be 2 tight. The Miz is down 2.

MikeJanis
11-17-2006, 01:40 AM
The Miz lost 7 in a row

MikeJanis
11-17-2006, 02:04 AM
WOW, things change fast. The HAT still has my respect. He came back a few sets and came out on top. After I heard this I wlked around the room and discovered VanBoening playin Cliff Joyner with aspot for only a bill per. I need to go get some sleep, I hope someone can give us an update on what happens in that match.

In other news, The Miz only won 4 games, 2 by combos on the 9 and 2 by running out. He ended up a 10 game looooooosssser.

Who backed Gregory? I know Josh has been backing Stevie.

Rumor has it the the APA 6 (who I found out later is actually a 7) backed Gregory.

When I left the action with the Miz vs the ghost turned out like this.

The Miz whent down 10 games at 2 per then renegotiated and got the 8. Klatt broke the 8 in several time and the Miz just kept running out until Angry had enough and quit winner by 2 games.

The match with Joiner and Shane was still going but I didn't get the score.

NOTE for all the ACTION Bidders, the PLAYER AUCTION is Friday night at 7pm. BE THERE !

The Friday Matches start at Noon and will continue every 2 hours until the HUGE Player Auction Starts on the final 64 at 7pm. After the Player Auction we will see 2 more rounds of play at 8pm and 10pm. I hope everyone gets off their computer and makes their way to the event.

Additional things taking place each night are CUR Raffles and a Raffle for a Brunswick GC IV Pool Table which will be given away Sunday night at the start of the finals at 6pm.

Great reporting guys, thanks alot!

That Angry White sure gets things stirred up, esp since he can't run out much at all. I was in Atlanta two weeks ago and Angry was stirring it up backing Joyner against SmackMac 11-5. During the match Angry would needle Joyner with remarks like "Cliff you win this and Im taking you to OutBlack or Black Lobster". Angry is quite a character.

Saying Angry "can't run out much" is an understatement! LOL He definitely is a character.

Someone clue me in cause I must be missing something.... I've only ever known Brandon Shuff to live in the VA/MD region and play out of Sterling. Is he originally from OH and I didn't know that or was Janis mistaken and just in bad need of some sleep?? :confused: :p

All I've heard so far is that there's an action table set up and they can't get Lil Jon off of it. :p I haven't heard who he's been playing or for how much, I just know they haven't been able to keep him off of it.

Brandon moved to FL?!?!? :eek: I wasn't able to go to the Tiger Tour last weekend so I'm out of the loop on all the latest with the MV/VA/NJ pool world happenings.

There are 2 triple shimmed tables that Mark Gregory had just re-done. No one seems to want to get off these tables. The action is non stop. It's been fun to watch.

Wish I could be there now. Gotta support our troops tomorrow for God Bless Fort Benning; I'll be raffling off free LASIK procedures. I was going to have my doctor perform LASIK (free of charge) for three soldiers, but we couldn't get a medical clearance. That would have been awesome, so I'm a bit disappointed.

See y'all tomorrow night :)

GREAT TOURNAMENT!!!
Action is everywhere. Last night Shane V Beat Tony W in 9-ball on the super tight Diamond table. Shane was giving Tony 8 and took 1,500 off of him. Actually he won more than that but, Tony stiffed him on the last game. Shane lowned Tony a hundred earlier in the night so actually he stiffed him out of $400.00 total.
There is a line of folks waiting to play on that Diamond Table. After the match-up with Tony and Shane was over Terry Stewart played someone race to 15 for 2 large. T was getting 4 on the wire. I asked who T was playing before I left last night but I forgot this morning who he was. If any knows who he was please post it along with the turnout of the match. When I left the kid won the firt three and T won the fourth game.

Just heard from Keith Bennet. He won his match vs Corey 11-10. Keith is sponsored by Break Time Billiards in Wilmington, NC. www.breaktimetenpin.com

An interesting side note. We hold a $250 added nine-ball tournament on the first Tuesday of every month. Keith and Sparky Ferrel are regulars in the tournament. This months tournament featured Keith and Sparky in the final match. sparky won that one. Looks like some great pool being played. Wish I was there.
