If I remember correctly, you played last year didn't you.

Browser can't translate for me so hard to read the page.

Anyway, good luck and hope you do well.


To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

Stella and Risk are pretty good pool halls, I don't know about cheap, but probably cheaper than Bagus.

Thanks.

Yea, I lost to Ko Pin Yi in the single elimination bracket. Never had a chance.

Just scroll down a bit and click on the pdf links to open the brackets. Your computer should be able to display it.

It must be hard to draw a talent like Ko Pin Yi and still keep focused. I am sure you will be back next year to try again.

Most of the other AZ crowd would be shocked at the professional attitude of all the players there. The room is full of mutual respect, talent and love for the game.

Thanks again for the info on Tokyo rooms last year and also for the link to this year's matches.

We are tossing up on whether our son will have his first school year in Japan in 2013. If so I will definitely be there!

I can't believe that Oi Kun still plays out of Flannel. I figured by now for sure he'd be in a bigger room.

Cool, no problem. It definitely is a good experience playing in Japan. They have a much more structured system for amateurs and pros here.

This year I beat 2 Japanese pros and 2 amateurs, but lost to Lining in the round of 64. Maybe next year I can get an easier draw. Lol

I gotta say, it is REALLY cool that the players are all linked to a room like that and that the tournament advertising this fact in the draw like that. Something like that in the USA could really help some higher end pool halls.

One of the great things about the scene over there is that most all players work as a house pro (salary) or as a rep (expenses) for a room somewhere. One of the other cool things about Japan is that because there are so many rooms and in the Tokyo area they all stagger their weekly tournies to avoid convlict with eachother, whenever you sign in for a tournament, they always ask you for your home room. If they get several players from the same home room, they work the draw so that you're not cutting heads with eachother til the later rounds. And, because you can play a tournament almost every night of the week in the Tokyo area, you'll generally run into the same players every night. It's like a mini tour. Hijikata, Oi, and Dasuke Hanawa..................................used to run into these kids every night. I remember when Hijikata was an 11 year old trying to learn how to bridge a cue. One of my young students was always coming in 2nd to Hijikata in the all Japan Jr. events and they ended up being really good friends. "Hi" kun used to come to my room and hang out with us. I literally watched this kid go from learning to bridge to turning pro at the age of 16 and ranking in the top 5 on the tour in his rookie year in a span of about 5 years.

This is not to be confused with the 'All Japan Open'?
