In my country, and probably in the US as well there are some people who prey on greedy people by guaranteeing 200% return or some other such idiotic number on every investment and naturally steal all the money. Even though they have been caught, convicted and people KNOW this, there is always someone, more like a long line of people, eager to invest with them, when they finally get out of prison. "THIS TIME it's going to be different", they say.

Good luck going into this league.

Back in 2006, there were people on this forum defending Kevin Trudeau even though some of us were trying to warn them he was nothing more than a con man. I would bet if you asked, there are STILL people on here who would defend him and curse the 'naysayers'.

Some people are short sighted, and only care about a quick payday without putting in the groundwork to have something thats actually sustainable.

Bullshitters and carnie style con men will always have their suckers. If greed and stupidity would die off, their craft would have disappeared long ago.

People dont change, they only change the presentation they let you see.


I don't like making plans for the day, because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

Unless you have a home table and have no issue inviting the random opponent of the week into your home you still have to find a place to play and pay whatever that costs. Regardless, maybe the MLM nature of it doesn't repulse you and the idea of trying to set up your match of the week sounds like a good time then by all means have at it. Nothing about this appeals to me. Even if you are as pure as the driven snow and just want to make 4 new friends a month you are going to contend with a whole lot of others who see it as a side hustle.

Mr BRussell, that URL points to my Facebook & I have nothing to do with the organization... there must be a typo in there....

It goes where it's meant to for me but I do not have my own face page for it to default to...I think it's something on your end.

I went to the Tournament they had in Dodge City & had a good time. Ended up in the 3-4 spot, but had a good time. Got to rub shoulders with some Pros & very good amateurs. Got to see a lot of players I know... looking forward to next year or the next tournament.

Got to see Dodge City & some it's attractions & that new-to- me Casino ... what a great meeting place, with the Hotel, Casino & Convention Center. in one location.

Saw the Player win a new Harley Sportster, he was shaking like a leaf, but he had a great big Smile on his face...

I was skeptical of this also, but it is gaining traction in multiple places, CO just being

one of them. Is it MLM? Yes it is. They are hosting a free roll $50,000 tourney coming up

in September for members.

Johnny Archer, Justin Bergman, John Schmidt, Rodney Morris to name a few of the pros

playing. Now being a skeptic...I was sold on it when a friend of mine was able to play

the Rocket in Orlando while visiting...that is worth it to me. Being able to play 20 games

of pool with a professional, and not be an exhibition match.

As for it being MLM...yeah, now you can actually get paid to play pool. Isn't that what

most players wanted anyways? For the $40 a month you get to play in 8 ball, and 9 ball

league. Cheaper than what I am paying now. So since I have chosen down this path,

I will update you on what becomes of it. For me throwing $40 a month isn't that important,

I have spent way more in the past for league fees, hopefully I can quit one of them and save some $$$.
Never doubted JA would be one of the players.

So you actually played in this tournament? Please explain more about it! Or were you just playing us!

Yes, I played in the Tournament. I stated that I went out at the 3-4 position, after scratching on my shot. We were playing 8-Ball, BCA rules I think.

I had him beat, but I went for a Hero Shot & turned out to be a Zero. But I didn't drive 350 miles, to play Safe.

It was fun & I got to see a lot of ol' friends, from our BreakRAK Tournament attending days.

Why did you think I was Playing You/Us... I've been around since 2003 & folks around here know me to have integrity.

ok, So I don't understand this and let's keep in mind my league knowledge is about zip.

This isn't one of those crazy hype games, there is a very real product it seems, mlm's have been legal for years. So what's the problem? I would think you guys would love this from the sounds of things.
