Cooper is a 3 yr. old little boy who has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma…..cancer. He has been given a 30% chance to live, even after extensive chemotherapy treatments. His parents need help paying for his medical care. I was asked a couple of weeks ago by OB1 Tour Player, Kim Pierce, if I would make the 4 hour trek to the Green Room in Temple, Texas to help with a benefit for Cooper. Of course, I could not say no. There will be a benefit pool tournament, silent auction, raffles, and a challenge the pro table. The Women’s Professional Billiard Association (www.wpba. com) players have kindly offered to donate billiards memorabilia as well as the PREDATOR GROUP ( and Pool & Billiards Magazine ( .

2009 WPBA FINALS Story & Photos by Anne Craig – WPBA

November 15th, 2009: Hollywood, FL - The Finals were set as two fierce competitors entered the arena, ready to do battle for the title of the 2009 WPBA Tour Champion. Jasmin Ouschan is coming into this final poised to win Jasmin Ouschan her third WPBA title of the season, and Xiaoting was looking for her first win since the 2008 BCA event. The crowd was amped up and ready for a great match as the competitors stepped into the arena for the lag which Jasmin won. Jasmin broke and she pocketed a ball but missed the 1 ball which set off a safety battle between them. Xiaoting ended up leaving Jasmin snookered behind the 7 and partially the 6 ball for the 2, all lined up across the short side of the table. The crowd cheered as Jasmin jumped the 7 ball, missing the 6 and hitting the 2 dead center of the side pocket for position on the next ball and she ran out for a final score of 7-2 and winning the title of the 2009 WPBA Tour Champion and her 3rd title of the season. Could the 2009 Player of the Year award be far behind? We’ll have to wait and see! That’s a wrap for the 2009 WPBA Season!
