Letter to the Editor:

A Response to: A misunderstanding or an out and out flimflam, you judge. One of the many responsibilities of a TD is to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to compete. With only 15 players in this tournament, and the statement that the practice table was not being used in the tournament, should be an indicator to the TD that the match was suspect. If the TD had assigned tables (a very standard practice) this would have really been in favor to the player that was duped. Still with only 15 players in the tournament, the duped player should have known who he was playing next and should always be aware of where he stands in the flow chart. Hearing only one side of this argument is not a basis to make a determination. But to answer the question ... What would be your call? Or what would you have done as a TD, here is my reply. How do you determine which player is telling the truth? Some additional information would be helpful, but if none were available you could: You can ask if anyone witnessed the event (foul or issue). It is well within the TD’s rights to solicit information in a dispute. Sometimes all the witnesses are one of the players buddies. And what if the witnesses have different versions? You can take sides with the player you feel is more reputable… not always a good idea, and can brand the TD as a “HOMER” always leaning towards the home crowd in calls ... bad rep for the TD. You can take each player aside and listen to their side of the story and make a determination based on what you believe to be TRUE ... Big judgment call.. and not very fair to at least one of the players. You can explain to the person that traveled 175 miles to a tournament that it is always a good practice to know how to read a flow chart and who your next opponent is and what (Response continued on page 26)

Rotation Continuous By: Bob Jewett of the SFBA

Email Questions to:

San Francisco Billiard Academy Do you have trouble working your way through run-outs? Do you have to fall back on safety play more than you would like? Here is a game that will help you develop the skills to run out even when there looks like there’s not much hope. It was suggested to me by Danny Kuykendall Bob Jewett from Southern California and is called Rotation Continuous. The rules are pretty simple. You are playing 15-ball rotation so you have to hit the lowest ball first on each shot. At the start of each turn at the table, the incoming player gets ball in hand. You score one for each ball pocketed, and lose a point for a foul. Shots do not have to be called. Safety play is not allowed. Two or more can play, or you can play against the Ghost (explained below). For the opening break, the one ball goes in front, and the 2 and 3 balls should go on the corners. If the breaker makes a ball, he gets ball in hand to continue the run, and gets a point for each ball he sank on the break. Whoever makes the last ball of a rack breaks the next rack. Play to a total of 50 or 75 points. If you play an intentional safety, you lose 15 points. (This last rule is hard to judge, but I don’t see a better way to prevent safety play.) To play this game well, you have to perfect your break-outs and other special shots and take chances. Shown in the diagram is a situation that looks really tough at first until you see the solution through the first four balls. If this goes well, you will have solved all the problems. In the first shot, called a “ticky,” the object ball comes off a cushion to a ball near the cushion to trickle into the pocket. This shot is much easier than it looks and is important to

master. The angle shown is nearly ideal, and it helps if you shoot as softly as possible. The shot on the 2 ball is an easy break-out of the 12-13 and is sure to get some kind of shape on the 3. You could play the 3-11 combo, but your inning would soon end as the 3 would likely be on the side cushion between the side and the 4-5. Instead play the 3 off the 10 which is a problem ball anyway. If you end up with the angle shown to the 4 ball, playing the cue ball off the 4 and the cushion to make the 9 should bring the cue ball around to the middle of the table for a possible shot on the 4 which will be clear. The other major technique that you will need to master for this game is the bank shot. If you MUST run out, the bank is often the best percentage. If you don’t move the 10 ball with the 3 as shown in the diagram, you are likely to end up banking it. A common mistake is to try to break the ball out (and miss it) rather than take the bank, but often you should resign yourself to the bank and play good position for it. “Playing the Ghost” means to play against an imaginary opponent who plays fairly well. At ghost nine ball, the Ghost is usually assumed to always run out if you give him any shot. To make things a little fairer, you get ball in hand after the break. Miss and you lose. For Rotation Continuous, you can play against a Ghost of a particular ability. Each time you miss, mark up your points and five points for the Ghost. If that’s too tough, try the 3-point Ghost. If you need some final motivation, remember that solo Rotation is Efren Reyes’ practice game of choice. I’ve heard that he would give the 15-point Nov 10 - $100 Added Ghost a very bad time at Rotation Women’s Doubles Continuous. $20 entry-per team The Billiard News & Tournament Report A Weekly Webcast

Western BCA 9-Ball Regionals Western BCA Completes Successful 2007 9-Ball Championship Tournament It was an outstanding 9-ball tournament. The Tenth Annual 2007 Western BCA 9Ball Championships opened play Oct. 22 with mini-tournaments and ring games that night. The “real” competition started Wednesday morning with Scotch teams playing in Open and Master team competition. Singles followed Thursday and Friday and teams competed on Saturday and Sunday. This year’s Western BCA 9-ball tournament was bigger and better than ever. The 131 men’s teams and 39 women’s teams were the most ever to sign up to play. Attendance was up 20 percent from 2006, with 719 players in attendance this year. Total entries rose 17 percent, and payouts totaled $60,045. Added money increased to almost $22,000. This year even saw an added division with Men’s and Women’s Novice Singles play. Men’s Master division was won by Todd Marsh. Todd had to beat strong competition on his way to the top of the heap. Beginning with his first match he played, in order, Colin McMurphy, Ken Dodd, Steve Lingelbach, Chad Bisconer, Cedric Sloan, and then Don Wirtaman (who played Todd for the point and lost and then came back around after defeating Ken Dodd). Todd went through the field in the Men’s Master Singles by not losing a match. Impressive win, Todd. As an added note, Todd finished second in this year’s 8 Ball Championships in the Men’s Masters to Dan Louie from the Seattle area. This year Dan was unable to attend the Western BCA tournament as he was in the hospital back East due to a serious medical problem the required him to stay in intensive care for several days. The problem occurred while he was playing in the U. S. Open tournament in Virginia. Best wishes on your recovery, Dan. Jackie Fitchner clinched the Women’s Master division. Jackie’s route took her through matches with Barb Thompson, Heather Bullock, Josie Leroy, Cindy Doty for the point and Andrea Sanz-Maes for the final. Jackie won the Women’s Master by never losing a match and won her final match over Andrea by a score of 9-1 in only 27 minutes. This win was an early present to herself - her birthday was the following day. Incidentally, Jackie took second in the Women’s Masters at Nationals in Vegas this year. Jason Evans was steamrolled his way through the Men’s Open A players working his way through the loser’s bracket. Jason defeated Marvin Holmes by 8-1 in the final after Marvin had defeated Scott Thurston (4th) and Larry Sowell (3rd) to reach the finals. Jason also won the Open Mixed Scotch Doubles with Francie Johnson and finished third in the Men’s Team event. In addition, Jason turned a lot of heads with his play in the 10-Ball ring game on Tuesday night. Scott Brasher did not look like an Open B player when he destroyed the field of 166 and became the Open B champion. Scott, from Kennewick, went undefeated in the Men’s Open B. He beat David Kartchner in the finals after David beat Randel (continued on page 18) (Results on page 8)

Hill-Hill Battle to Rakin Victory Western Women’s Regional 9-Ball Tour Oct 13-14, 2007 Stop #4 - Hard Times Billiards, Sacramento, CA By Emilyn Callado

A long time supporter of women’s pool, Hard Times Billiards hosted the fourth of five stops in the Western Women’s Regional tour. Nine regular attendees made an appearance, including some of the top performers in the tour: Eleanor Callado, Mary Rakin, and Michelle Rakin. Michelle Rakin, Eleanor Callado On the winner’s side, sisters Michelle and Mary won their first two matches to meet in the hot seat match, but fate was on Michelle’s side with a 7-4 victory. On the oneloss side, Mary was sent over to play long-time pal Eleanor Callado. Eleanor’s road through the tournament began with a case game loss against WPBA competitor Lisa D’Atri. Three wins on the one-loss gave Eleanor another opportunity to face off against Lisa, this time with a 7-3 victory. Mary and Eleanor’s third place match finished quite abruptly, with a few errors on Mary’s part, and a final score of 7-1 to Eleanor. The final match between renowned break-and-run players Michelle and Eleanor ended in lightning speed. Between the two of them, there must have been at least 3 break and runs, the highlight of the match being Eleanor’s two-pack win (third on the way had she not missed the 7 ball) putting her on the hill. Going case game, Michelle cleaned up the last rack for the win. Many thanks to Tony Torres and the rest of the Hard Times management for their continued support. WWR has been an established WPBA sanctioned tour for the past 12 years, and Hard Times has been sponsors from the very beginning. The last tour stop will be held at Family Billiards, San Francisco, CA.

That’s Jacked Up! Samm Diep (c) October 2007 Level cue! Level cue!! Level cue!!!

Samm Diep

That’s what we’re constantly told and reminded of. The more elevation in your cue, the more room there is for error. The more elevation, the more chance there is to inadvertently masse the cue ball. The more elevation, the more chance there is to unintentionally miscue or jump the cue ball. All of these are very valid reasons to always try to keep your cue as level as possible. However, there comes a time when you find your cue ball so close to the rail that you just have no option but to jack up to achieve your desired result. This would be an instance when it’s acceptable to not keep a level cue. Jacked up shots, like a draw shot or a jump shot, are its own category of shots. I thank Tom Ross, one of my earlier coaches, for having me devote the last 10-15 minutes of my daily practice to shooting nothing

but jacked up shots. Eventually, I got so comfortable with them I could make them from the middle of the table while drawing the cue ball back to the rail. You don’t have to take such extreme measures, but here are a few tips to remember when shooting jacked up shots: 1. You don’t need to hit the ball very hard. It’s easy to want to nail the cue ball because we often associate the jacked up shot with the jump shot (where you do need to shoot it pretty firm). Sometimes, we even let our muscles get away from us. Tip #2 will help with this one. 2. Once you’re lined up and jacked up, visualize just dropping your cue. Try to imagine just letting that cue slip out of your fingertips and let the weight of the cue drop straight onto the cue ball without any of those extra movements from your arm and wrist getting in the way. 3. Make sure your stance is aligned and locked in. Whether you prefer to line up for the shot from your normal stance and come up on it, or to just walk right up to it, make sure your stance is perfectly aligned. Depending on the shot, you may find yourself on a tippy-toe or two. That’s okay. Just make sure your body is aligned and you are well-balanced. Actually, practicing jacked up shots helps develop your normal alignment as well. You’ll quickly learn that the slightest bit of variance in your stance will not pocket the ball. Everything must come together.

4. Unless you’ve really mastered the jacked up shot, avoid using any side spin. Elevation + side spin = masse. When practicing jacked up shots, begin with straight in stop shots along the foot rail. Then, set up straight in draw shots. Next, give yourself a slight angle. Start with devoting a few balls per practice to just shooting jacked up. Before you know it, you’ll rarely miss a jacked up shot again! An important note: Make sure you do not shoot from the same spot every time. Like jump shots, the elevation in your cue can be very hard on the equipment. Move the cue ball around and practice the shot in moderation. And most importantly, even though you now have the tips to shoot effective jacked up shots, only shoot them when absolutely necessary. When you have the option to roll the ball versus jacking up to achieve position, rolling the ball is always the higher percentage shot.

Good Mechanics Step Two By Roger Long - Advanced Certified Instructor

Last month, we talked about the mechanics involved in achieving proper alignment. This month, we’ll wrap up our discussion on good mechanics by talking about the mechanics involved in maintaining a level cue. Any time a cue is stroked through a cue ball at a downward angle, the cue ball is almost always curved off of its straight-line path. The reason for this is because the downward angle puts a backspin on the ball, which then sets up friction between the ball and the cloth, which then generates heat, Roger Long which then causes the cue ball to “drag”. If there is any sidespin (English) on the cue ball (which there almost always is, due to the fact that the cue ball is rarely struck at exactly dead center on the vertical axis), the ball will curve in the direction of the English, i.e., Right English will produce a right-hand curve. Therefore, unless the shooter is intentionally wanting to curve the cue ball, the cue stick must be held as level as possible all through the stroke. The best way to keep the cue level all the way through the stroke is to use what is called a “pendulum stroke” (see Diagram A). A pendulum stroke is one where you start with a level cue, and then you move only the forearm back and forth, keeping everything else, including the upper arm, locked into place. The motion resulting from this stroke will look like the swinging of a pendulum on a clock. When you use a pendulum stroke you are eliminating all unnecessary body and extremity movements from which miss-hits on the cue ball generally occur. Another thing to be considered is where you should grip the cue. This will vary from player to player depending on physical make up and personal style (upright stance, low stance, etc.). The one thing everyone should try to practice, however, is adopting a grip that will have the forearm perpendicular to the floor as the tip contacts the cue ball (see Diagram B). Gripping the cue at this spot will ensure that you contact the cue ball at the cue’s most level point (at the bottom of the pendulum arc) when executing the stroke. Well, dear shooters; that about sums up my own viewpoints on mechanics

that can help achieve better fundamentals. But just remember, you’re not going to see all great players using these exact mechanics - many have developed their own ways of achieving straight and level strokes. So don’t let me, or anyone else, tell you that you absolutely have to do things this way. Only you can be the judge of what’s right for you.

Mountain View, CA Billy Palmer once again conquers the Saturday One Pocket event, taking precedence over a 29-player field. The $400 added tournament drew a packed house of tough players and spectators with everyone having a good time. Billy played brilliantly as always as he sailed through the winners side beating 5 very tough players to take the hot seat. Jim Blakeman lost the hot seat match, but got another shot at Billy in the finals only to be turned away once again. In the Sunday 9-Ball tournament, Deo Alpohora cruised through the winners side by getting past Hide Shima, Jeff Billy Palmer Gregory, Carl Wilson Jr., Jim Blakeman and Tony Annigoni to take the hot seat. Tony played very well to get another chance to dethrone Deo, but ran out of gas as Deo was too strong achiving victory.

Milhoan (4th) 7-2 and Marc Cowling (3rd) 7-6 to leading to his victory. Dove Thompson became the Women’s Open champion by beating Melinda Childers in a hard fought match. Dove and Melinda had to wait until Sunday to finish the Women’s Open Singles. One of the two new events this year, Men’s Novice, saw Shane Swenson double dip Jay Rinehart for a first place win. Jay finished second and Mark Yamamoto was third. For the new Women’s Novice division, Jean Snow took first place, coming through the brackets undefeated. Second place finisher was Lillian Duren, with Liz Green taking third. Master Scotch winners were new to the top spot. Jay Kraus and Susan Preston tore through the brackets undefeated. Their opponents included second place finishers Carissa Biggs and Steve Linglebach. Josie Leroy and Shane Verhaaren took third, and fourth place finishers were Andrea Sanz-Maes and Glenn Atwell. Susan snagged Jason at last year’s 8-ball event after she became a master player and realized she’d have to play in masters scotch. The two came with focus and heart, and the formula worked for them. Opponents Carissa Biggs and Steve Lingelbach showed their professionalism by playing quickly and efficiently; however, Jay and Susan prevailed with their steady determination. In Open

Scotch play Jason Evans and Francie Johnson took first from J. Keith Johnson and Alisha Rogers, second place finishers. Tony Tipton and Trish Tipton took third place; and Darcy Moss and Jon Letson took fourth. Soundview Bar and Grill of Everett Wash., (Jim Conway, Ed Slade and Lance Bauge) had defeated Barely Legal (Darrold Craine, Steve Heiman and Larry Sowell) from Medford, Ore., by a score of 14 to 10. Barely Legal won the first two games but Soundview won the next five games and never looked back. Although about 500 miles separate the two teams, by the end of the match both teams had developed a great respect for each other. EQC Strokerz (Bill Coats, Bill Andreozzi, Doug Schulze and Larry “LT” Tulfo) won the Second Chance team event in a single elimination format over 18 other teams. The popular ring games were expanded this year. Once again the excitement of the 10-ball ring game was a real crowd pleaser and a true test of heart. Different events were added for both women and open men. The $100 per person entry, winner take all format had 12 entries in the first masters ring game. Glenn Atwell and Jason Evans took honors. In the second master ring game, 11 players fought it out Glenn and Mike Stevens came out winners. In the women’s ring game, Cindy Doty took the win on Tuesday. On The Wire produced a professional full color tournament program, giving participants vital information about the event as well as a lasting memento of a week well spent. Venders were On the Wire, (formerly Beads and Billiards), Palace Billiards and Dave Lauer Cue Repair. The Chinook Winds food court and beverage bar was kept busy the entire week and was appreciated by all. Local Head Referee Darryl Farley put Jean Snow

Neighborhood Bar & Billiards by: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

BELLEVUE, WA If you are looking for something new, look no further than The Spot Off Main in downtown Bellevue that opened October 26th. This unique new “Neighborhood Bar & Billiards” is just that. It was designed with an upscale business professional atmosphere of urban industrial meeting modern sheik with a black, red and metal décor. The Spot is offering four 8' Brunswick Black Wolf pool tables and is starting an 8-Ball tournament every Wednesday evening at 7 pm with a $7 entry, revised BCA rules and play on two tables. The house is matching the pot and has a limit of 30 players. And for the sports enthusiasts there will be four flat screen HDTV’s with Direct TV. “Of course one of the TV’s will be totally ladies choice. This is something no one does,” remarked Daniel Gale, property manager, “It will take a consensus by the ladies at any given moment to change the channel and sports will

never be on that TV unless the majority of the ladies want it.” In addition to that Thursday is Ladies Night, which means that there will be NO SPORTS on TWO of the TVs. Ladies will also be able to play pool for free on Thursdays. “We are also offering a really nice lounge area with soft sofas and ottomans for those who don’t want to play games or watch sports but want to sit and chat with their friends. The area will seat about 10 people, a place to come sit, chat, have a couple drinks and order something from our light menu,” Daniel said. Besides playing pool, there are three electronic dart boards, a digital downloadable Jukebox and Retro Video Games like Ms Pac Man, Centipede, Galaga and hopefully Astroids in the near future.

The light menu will have healthy all American fare such as a pull apart Pork Sandwich, Clam Chowder, “Soup of the Day”, Shrimp cocktail, Bruschetta, Cobb Salad, Caesar Salad and Personal Pizzas. For your sweet tooth they offer original A & W Root Beer floats, Apple Pie and French Vanilla Ice Cream, Brownies and Huge Chocolate Chip Cookies. Don’t miss out on all The Spot Off Main Neighborhood Bar & Billiards has to offer. It is located in downtown Bellevue at 20 - 103rd Ave NE (behind 7-11) just off Main Street and Bellevue Way. They open daily at 4 pm and close at 1 am. It has Bellevue’s Longest Happy Hour from 4-8 pm every day. Check out their website for upcoming events, to view their menu, happy hour specials and special events. “Everybody is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there,” Daniel said in closing.

LONGVIEW, WA The Cadillac Island Casino hosted a handicap 9-Ball Tournament October 13th and 14th with fifty four players in attendance. It was our first try at a handicap format and the players thought it was great. We will have another handicap 9-Ball November 24th and 25th, and we will adjust some of the handicaps and the races to finish a little earlier. Several upsets happened and several close calls were in the works to make it an exciting weekend of play. If you have been hesitating to play with the big boys, for whatever reason, now is your chance to give it a try and have an edge at the same time. Cindy Sliva and Cathy Gamble were one out of the money, with Cindy losing to some guy named Eddie Mataya, and Cathy losing hill, hill to Ivan Doty. It was interesting and fun, we’ll keep adjusting spots to make it as fair as we can for everyone playing. Thanks to everyone, Including the Cadillac Island Casino for making it happen. 1. Stan Tourangeau $750 2. Jesse Allred $500 3. Frank Bess $400 4. Glenn Atwell $320 5. Ken Dodd $220 Ivan Doty $220 7. Todd Gooch $175 Eddie Mataya $175 9.

U S Open Champion Shane Van Boening by: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

The 32nd Annual U.S. Open, the most prestigious title for pool players in the United States was held October 14 - 20, 2007 at the Chesapeake Convention Center in Chesapeake, Virginia. The finals pitted the World 8-Ball Champion, Ronnie Alcano against the World 10-Ball Champion, Shane Van Boening. The match went back and forth for the first 16 racks - score 8-8. Rack seventeen was a safety game until Ronnie scratched. Shane went four balls and out with the nine in the

View U S Open video at side to win his third rack in a row and up 9-8. The break never favored the breaker in the finals. Shane was shooting slow. He never found his stroke but went ahead 10-9 in the race to 13. You want to be rewarded when you shoot a difficult shot and Shane was in rack twenty when he made a jump-kick safety which then forced Ronnie to foul. Shane went up 11-9. This could be the biggest win for Shane and his career. After most of his breaks coming up dry, Shane breaks and makes four balls then runs out to go on the hill 12-9. Rack 22: Van Boening scratches, Alcano jumps up, pockets a ball, then shoots behind his back and sinks it! He then finishes out the table. Score 12-10. Breaking in rack 23, Ronnie comes up dry. Shane works the table slowly, maybe the pressure is slowing him down, but like a seasoned veteran, pockets each ball until he’s on the nine. It is almost straight in - and the title Shane Van Boening SHANE VAN BOENING is the 2007 U.S. OPEN 9-BALL CHAMPION! 1st $50,000 Shane Van Boening 2nd $25,000 Ronnie Alcano 3rd $12,500 Tomoko Mekari 4th $7,500 Ralf Souquet

Podium staff Stacy and Jennifer Sherman, Alex and Dale Stroup, Sassy Campbell, Sam Rabito, Cindy Rosenthal, Joyce Gumm, Andrew Monstis, Darcy Moss and Bill Henderson spent many hours handling all sorts of i s s u e s , announcing giveaways, dealing with

paperwork, making executive decisions and doing much more to help the tournament run smoothly. Nine-ball 2007 tournament shirts sold like hotcakes. Most were sold out before the weekend. There were still some great denim shirts left and several sweatshirts in limited sizes. Be sure and buy your shirts early for 8-ball so you can get the size you want. There were quite a few giveaways from Chinook Winds, totaling $500 in merchandise. Darcy Moss won a big raffle for the coveted Pechauer cue. Kurt Hamm spent time prior to the tournament collecting gifts and certificates from local businesses in Lincoln City for giveaways. (Article continued on page 27) (Results on page 8)

League Player of the Month


sponsored by Hood River Distillers

by: Tina Mendoza The Diablo Valley Pool Women league has been running leagues for more that a decade. We are composed of women who love to play pool and strive to get competitive enough to face the challenges of the competition of the upcoming yearly event that runs out of the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada; the National 8ball BCA and ACS tournament. We would like to give credit where credit is due, and want to dedicate this piece to honoring the journey of one of our now veterans who we believe has been committed to mastering the game of pool and has become one of the most consistent and dangerous shooters of our local scene. She has done so well, maintaining a casual but serious attitude of the game by shaking hands, smiling and always saying “LETS HAVE SOME FUN”. I praise Shawn Modelo today, because even though she continues to master her skills with the game of pool, she also has managed to remain humble and nonjudgmental of the many new players that come Shawn Modelo into our leagues. She is one that might share some of her knowledge with inexperienced players and will give positive reenforcement to an upcoming player before a condescending comment comes out her mouth. That folks, I respect. Let us share with all you folks her thoughts:

How did you start playing pool? “in1995 my husband wanted to go play in a pool tourney at the sports bar and begged me to come with him. The person running the tourney asked me if I wanted to play but I told him I didn’t know how, didn’t know the rules, he said it was ok that they would help along the way. I picked up a house stick and started shooting. I had beginners luck and made some fun shots. That was on a Monday and by Friday I had bought my first cue and haven’t stopped shooting since” How did u hear about DVPL? Word of mouth. Someone told me they had women’s tourneys at Magoos. I showed up on a Friday and it turned out to be a Scotch doubles tourney. It was fun. Tina Mendoza got my number and when the summer league started she hooked my up with my first team with Sally as a captain of our team The Outsiders. That first year I so looked forward to my Wednesday. nites with the ladies .I really didn’t know how to play but i was having fun. How much time has it taken for you to get to a competitive level? Years How has your Vegas experienced been? During my first year we kept hearing about “Vegas” and when the time came I really didn’t feel ready but I remember Tina encouraging us to go and check it out. So Sally and I went and that was when I got my first clue what pool was all about. The game, the competition, players from all over the world. I didn’t win a match but it brought out the player in me and I knew I had just played the best pool I had ever played and I came back a pool player. That’s when I started to learn the game and continue to practice! What do u suggest to new players Practice, practice, practice. Listen to seasoned players who offer tips and advise, take the opportunity to watch the pros live...practice, practice, practice! How do u compare small table to big table play? For me one is not better than the other but there is a difference. I have been very fortunate that I have the opportunity to practice on both. We have a big table at home and my Pop has a 7’ Diamond. I need to use the bridge more on a big table, the balls break different. You need to have a straight stroke for those long shots on a big table! At what point having fun while playing pool turns in to a stressful situation? 1. Since I am fortunate to practice on very nice equipment it is very stressful and frustrating to play at places with “mud” balls or balls with chunks gouged out, no lighting, or cloth that is not in good condition. You are supposed to adapt and adjust but it is very difficult for me. 2. When I really started to learn how to play, especially using English I went thru a period where I couldn’t make a ball. I got really frustrated and at one point I actually put my cue away in the closet thinking I wasn’t going to play for awhile but that lasted one hour! I couldn’t stand it. I pulled it back out started hitting balls. I think that’s when I realized I am addicted to pool and that I loved the game. Now when I’m in a slump and feel like no matter what I do I can’t make a ball I just play thru it and usually my game has jumps up a notch and I play just a little sharper.3. Its always stressful to have to tolerate unsportsmanlike like conduct. It shouldn’t be tolerated by the pool community at all. How has scotch doubles helped your game?

Scotch makes you aware of your leave and you always feely guilty when you leave your partner a difficult shot or no shot at all. Again I a m fortunate to have a great scotch doubles partner, my Pop, because I know no matter how bad I leave him I have complete confidence that he will pull a fabulous shot out of his “hat”. So you try and control the cue ball a little better. You are more aware of the position of the balls on the table and try to keep it together for the win so as not to let your partner down. Plans for the future? Practice, play, practice. Play new venues like going to Louisville to play in the Olympics. Reno open, of course Vegas is the tourney of all tourneys. It’s always exhilarating to play new competition. How do you plan to pass on the message to new players? Let’s have fun! These are some of the accomplishments achieved by Shawn: -On 2002-3 she ended up being # 15 in our top team best shooters. By then her best number was 8.23. Her team directed by Sally Harvey took third place this season. -By 2004 she had made a move which would improve her chances to the money since she had joined a much more experience group of players lead by veterans Lisa Baker and Holly Robinson, in fact the teams standings improved by taking 2nd place. -On 2005 Force Five finally took the so desired top price in women’s league. Shawn took top women for this season. -On 2006 this same team took 2nd behind Cue T’s, shawn took 8th spot on top women category, shooting at 8.79 - On 2006 summer session she decided to explore big table league. She played Crown billiards and finished with first place team and top women $700 -She attended the Reno Open and took top women in March 2007 -She attended the ACS tournament in Las Vegas in 2007 Women’s Open 8-Ball Singles 5-6th Shawn Modelo (Antioch, CA) $350 SCOTCH DOUBLES AND SINGLES WOMENS TOURNAMENTS 2006 8ball league; 4th place for $125 2006 9ball league; 3rd place for $470 She has captured the 8ball scotch doubles league several times and has been a serious contender for the 9ball scotch doubles league as well. Shawn Modelo, is not only a friend, but has proven to have the qualities of what I consider a role model for the rookies of our league. To me she is a “player”. Thank you for you commitment to the game of pool and our Diablo Valley Pool League.

players Saturday. Sunday morning a few preliminary matches were played and the Final 32 started amazing only one hour behind schedule. After a 18-hour Saturday and little rest all the players could attest that anyone thinks pool is not a “SPORT” has no clue. With the level of competition and over a $26,000 total purse to be paid out, spectators and players alike were witness to incredible shots and amazing run-outs. Thanks to all the players and spectators for their co-operation and good sportsmanship. The staff must be commended on the level of service and the excellent job of providing great meals to such a full capacity crowd for the entire weekend. Many players commented on what nice playing conditions were provided and expressed their gratitude.

table you need to play on. You can explain to the player that went to the player that was ‘practicing’ and just put in the quarters and started playing and not announce that it was a tournament match that this is a ‘unsportsmanlike’ act and is on a warning, that would lead to a DQ if another infraction happens. The only way to be fair and consistent is to play the match over. Neither player is determined to be correct. All bad feelings are directed towards the TD. It’s part of the job. The TD’s ruling that was issued in your article was not wrong, but has lots of room for improvement ... with just 15 players ... come on ... let’s be fair ... get more involved with the problem ...don’t take the easy way out and just let the match stand. Dig a little deeper. from: Tom Suarez, Tournament Director at Hard Times Billiards Sacramento, CA

Cathy Dunford developed a new volunteer force for the tournament. Some of those volunteers got some very nice gifts, one of which was a week’s stay at Chinook Winds Resort, graciously donated by the resort. Shirley Morgan worked with others to come up with the “dynamite” shirt design. Joyce Gumm, Cindy Rosenthal and Sassy Campbell zipped out the payout checks,

putting in endless hours so that members could collect their hard earned winnings in the shortest wait time to date. Tom Moss did a great job on table layouts. Alex Stroup and Stacy Sherman fielded as many minitournaments and second chance events as they could fit in, and there were plenty. For those players between matches or out of the competition, there was beautiful weather and a windy but sunny beach to enjoy when they happened to get outside. It was a welcome change from the wet and strong winds that are usually present

at the beach in October. Gary Benson proved once again why he is such a good tournament director by keeping the tournament on schedule. Saturday night was the biggest challenge with all the teams playing in the room. When the last 9-ball rolled in the pocket and Jim Conway let out a shout that echoed throughout the room, this year’s tournament finally came to an end. All the Western BCA board and volunteers hope that every player had a satisfying experience during this tournament and learned something new to add to their game for the upcoming 8-Ball Championship. What a remarkable tournament! There were many upsets and many players reasserting their positions at a very competitive event. Generous congratulations are in order for all the players, including those who have demonstrated the talent to reach into the upper divisions, and those who come with little hopes of winning money, but with great heart and expectations of playing their best and having a ton of fun at the top regional events in the country. Thank you all for joining us in one of the biggest 9-ball tournaments in the United States. See you back in March. For the upcoming 8-Ball Championships, Diamond tables and red circle cue balls will be used. The 8-ball tournament will begin on March 10 or 11, 2008, with the final dates to be announced.
