Deno, long time no "see." It is GREAT to see you on board the AzBilliards Discussion Forum! :)

I remember the pictures and report you provided about an event in Mexico last year, and I really enjoyed reading about the tournament, its players, and the venue site.

I attended a tourney this past weekend and noticed the Sang Lee International Open poster on their bulletin board for the regulars. Just thought I'd post it up. It is a pretty one.

Good luck, and looking forward to reading all about it! :p

The tournament is going to be something special. I am not able to attend this year because of a prior obligation that I had schedule long before the tournament. The poster is great and I know the guys are working hard to make the tournament a success. I will probably have a page dedicated to the tournament on my web site after the fact. Thanks for posting the poster and the nice welcome.

What a great poster and even more reason to be thankful to be living in NY during the first week in August.

Pretty much all of the top players will be there, including Raymond Ceulemans and one of his sons (and maybe his grandson?). Sayginer, Jaspers, Sanchez, Blomdahl, ... Sanchez just won the World Championship in Spain with an average in the final match of 3.642. Of the top players, only Frederic Caudron and Eddy Leppens won't be there due to a long-standing commitment to be in Spain and Portugal at that time.

I understand that tapes will be available from some of the matches.

This tournament is different from a lot of 3-cushion tournaments in that all play will be by round-robin rather than elimination, including the 72-player prelims. I think there will be groups of 8 at the start, meaning that everyone gets to play at least 7 games.

Bob,

Do you think that the tapes will be available from AccuStats, or from CaromTV? Since I'll just miss the tourney, I'd love to get tapes. I'll be in Manhattan till 8-1 in the afternoon, then flying back home. No time to see it, which is just killing me! Sounds like it should be great.

Anything special planned to honor the late Sang Lee?

I'm not sure who will be taping. I've even heard rumors of matches being on TV. I'll let you know when I find out.

I think some kind of remembrance is planned, but I don't know what.

Anyone who is near NYC, be sure to come by. On a Deno-related note, there will be Versace cue cases for sale. Play starts on the 1st.

I was at Carom Cafe on Tuesday and had a blast. But I won't be able to put on my spectator hat again till Friday. Does anyone know whether the results and brackets are to be found somewhere online? Thanks.

There was some amazing early play. In practice Daniel Sanchez ran a 20 and Tayfun Tasdemir ran a 21. The prelims were to 25 (9-man round robins) and I think the best game (but they weren't officially keeping innings) was a 4-inning whomping by Martin Horn 2-13-2-8. His opponent got 1 point. But that wasn't the worst beating. Raymond Ceulemans scored a shut-out -- 25-0. Except for a first-round loss to former world champion Christian Rudolph, Raymond never let any opponent get past 9 going to 25 in the prelims.

All three generations of Ceulemans made it into the second set of round robins, but Blomdahl's father (Lennart) didn't make it through.
