Wow. It would be quite an honor to share a table with Efren.

Crazy question. I've heard him speak very small amounts in interviews. How well does he speak English?

Actually, I do.

I called *Greg Sullivan* (that would be Mr. Diamond Billiard Corporation; Mr. DCC; Mr. Southern Classic (Tunica); The Promoter; The Money Man; etc., et al) last night and told him the rumor that was posted here. He said it was "not true" and that the tournament was still a go. So I told him, if it was OK, what I was going to post to respond to the rumor. He said, "Great, Lou, appreciate it. You know I don't get on the forums much. Thanks for having my back."

Sooooooooooooo, like it or not, that makes me the promoter/money man's offcial spokesmodel on this ;-)

I believe it will have a ton of barboxes versus the DCC only having 1 bar table and 60 big tracks. I also believe there will be multiple 10' tables with one piece slate at least that has been mentioned in the past as being in the cards. Maybe the spokesmodel handsome Lou will fill us in as to the exact events and equipment as he finds out more of the plans from Greg. Take it away Lou.

I think it will be a great event and should draw a huge crowd of players.

I've heard from a good source - meaning G.S. at Derby, there will be around 80 Bar Tables along with few dozen 9 ft tables.

I understand everyone would like to see an official press release on this event, but one thing Diamond is famous for is being detail oriented. DCC was only about a month ago and most business takes around 2 months to close the finance books on astronomical event as DCC!

Plus, DCC isn't the only demanding event Diamond is involved. I'm sure it's crazy at the plant loading tables to go out in a week for Super Billiard Expo.

I can't speak for Diamond, but I'm sure they will release a statement as soon as no lose end can be detected.

Tunica is happening for sure Now start saving the bank roll

Yes. At the DCC Ken Shuman announced right before the banks finale that Diamond would be hauling in 80-some odd bar boxes for an amateur event at Tunica.

I heard there was going to be 90 some odd barboxes not 80 some. Or was it 70 some?

Lou - can we get clarification on that?

Also, what type of refreshments will be made available? I'm particularly interested to know if there will be any peanuts. That is all.

I'm not booking my room until I hear back from the appointed spokesperson, preferably on company letterhead.
