BCA Open - Some of What I've seen - 05-16-2006, 07:52 AM

Sharing some of what I saw Monday form the women's draw ------

Paglia's win over Karen Corr was the big story of the day, and Angel was very sharp in this one.

Melissa Little had Allison Fisher in big trouble, ahead by 6 - 2, but Allison ralied to win the next few racks, to go up 7 - 6. When Little missed a seven ball where she appeared about to tie it 7 - 7, that was it, with Allison prevailing by 9 - 6. Vintage Allison down the stretch.

Wendy Jans played outstanding pool in trouncing Tiffany Nelson. Jans made an amost impossible runout at 5 - 2 and coasted after what I thought was the defining rack of the match.

All this aside, the lasting impression for me was watching Jasmin Ouschan's incredible effort in a 9 - 0 dismantling of Alice Rim. Ouschan's game has developed since last year, and I see her playing with far more attention to detail than ever before. It's difficult to know whether Jasmin can sustain this level of play, but if she can, she's among those with a chance to win this title.

On the men's side:

Hopkins had a 10 - 1 lead on Reyes and had numerous chances to close it out. Reyes got it to 10 - 10, but when Efren scratched on the double hill break it appeared Allen would escape. As there was a cluster on the table, Allen opted for a one nine combo, a shot I reckon he should make two times out of three, but hit it poorly. Reyes still had a tough run to negotiate with a cluster to break out along the way, but rose to the occasion for the shocking comeback win, 11 - 10.

Roschkowski vs Immonen was a good one. Each had some issues with their break, but they really played like champions up to 7 - 7. A couple of uncharacteristic erros by Mika down the stretch , a missed eight ball in particular, ended up costing Mika the match, with Roschkowskli a deserving winner.

Hohmann didn't showed his best against Ernesto Dominguez, but played well enough to get through in a match not really as close as the 11 - 9 score would suggest.

My first look at Kuo was uninspiring. He was very sloppy in his 11 - 8 win over Tony Robles, who never really got started in that match. Pei Wei Chang has a lot of game, and Satoshi Kawabata is playing great pool. I didn't get to catch Dennis Orcullo, but hope to see him play Reyes today.

Don't expect too many updates, as I don't have a laptop. I'm posting from a lobby kiosk at the Riviera. Still, I'll do what I can.

A quick look at the brackets would certainly indicate the younger ladies are ready to make their move, something I would attribute to them having a little more experience now on the WPBA. The crop of great players under 25 is great for the future of the WPBA IMO, the most exciting of these young players has to be the young Austrian Jasmin Ouschan, damn can this girl shoot! More impessive than her skill, has to be her attitude and willingness to improve, a trait that boldly reminds me of Thorsten Hohmann in his earlier pre-WPC days. The sky is truly the limit for her and the others as well, it will be very interesting to see how this crop of young players performs the rest of the week.

You gave an excellent synopsis and that should be good enough for any information hungry couch potatos.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the effort, sjm! I've never seen Orcullo play, and I'm terribly jealous. Enjoy!

Thumbs up Great Work - 05-16-2006, 10:50 AM

Thanx for the update for all of us stuck at home. Can't wait for more news. I've been watching the brackets and must agree, the big shocker was to see Karen Corr's loss in the 2nd round. Charlie

Thanks SJM, I have been stuck on the amateur side so far and have been meaning to meet you. Today, we went shopping and are having a birthday BBQ, and teams start tomorrow. Look me up if you get the chance - in the open - Voodoo Dolls.

Who is the new young Asian pro called Yung Yung or Yum Yum? Is he Taiwanese or Philipino? I saw him pointed out and he was wearing a red polo shirt with lots of logos.

Both are definitely from HK. King-Chui Yu is most likely a snooker player, but Chen-Man "Bobby" Lee is a poolplayer and sponsored by HK Pool Club. Bobby is an IPT'er as well.

Their website pretty much sucks when it comes to being able to track the competition.
