Dennis Orcollo vs Justin Bergman ~ Aug 5th and 6th.
They're supposed to play here Aug 5th and 6th at Poppa G's Billiards
in Pelham Alabama, (Birmingham). $5000 challenge match - 10 Ball, race to 60.
I still haven't heard if it's on 9' or BB's. Limited capacity at venue but
it will be live streamed - Hot Seat Billiards.

AZ home page says it's a race to 60 10-ball on a bar box. Hope it's on a regular table, but still should be good.


Pressure makes diamonds. Fire refines gold.

Play it like you mean it.

Playing Cue: Predators, Diveney, and looking
Break Cue: Mezz
Jump Cue: Gulyassy

Barbox would benefit Bergman.

IMO...

Since it's on a BABY BOX they should be changing baby prices.

I don't mind watching shortstops or A speed players on bar boxes but top tier pros????

It's to much chanc for a snooze fest.

Their level of play should be on a 9' or bigger.

I doubt very seriously that TheHotSeat has a say so about anything outside of streaming.

Same with Poppas, so it must be the players that decided on a bar box.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

I've not kept up with anything pool lately, but if they are the same speeds they were the last time I seen both play, the bigger the table the bigger the advantage Dennis would have.

Like I said, I've been "out of pool" for a bit, so I can't say without doubt on this match.

Shoot, after this 'rona mess, I am just thrilled to see pros in action. I don't care if it is on a 7, 9, or 12 footer. Heck I would watch them play on a kitchen table at this point. The FR are pretty close 816-793, and I don't know of any player that gets in action more than Bergman right now. Should be a fun match.

Disclaimer: I am only an APA 5. I am scared to play for the cheese, even if I have the nuts. I only play on toy 7 foot tables and am terrified of real 9 foot tables. My proudest posessions are my APA patches. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

I agree with you as well. Bergman has been taking on all comers, in different games, tables, races, etc.

I give Justin a slight edge here. The fact that his break is weaker than that of Dennis is much less of a problem on the small tables, and Justin's experience in dealing with the extra traffic typically presented will help him. Tactical play should be about even, as both must be counted as top ten in the world strategists.

It's a different game on a bar box, and bar box specialists like Corey Deuel, Skyler Woodward and Justin Bergman are super-tough to beat. A generation ago, Dave Matlock and Danny Medina were, similarly, tougher to beat on the bar box than on the nine footers.

Good luck to both of these fine players.

What would you guys say is a fair line on a 9 footer for this game, and then what would you say is a fair line for 7 footer for this game? Game line, not money line.

I have my own opinion and will state it once a few answers come back

On a nine footer, Dennis -5

On a seven footer, Bergman -3
