THE NITEHAWK “IT’S JUST A DAMN 9-BALL TOURNAMENT

The tournament was held on January 18th-20th, at the Nite Hawk Restaurant and Lounge in Portland, Oregon. We had a full field of 32 with some of the toughest players around. The tournament was filled with players from Salem, Portland, Longview, and even Dan Louie and Stan Tourangeau. Play began on Friday night with Denice White playing Paul Marquez. Denice played great. Paul Marquez commented that the score did not reflect how good she played and if not for a few mishaps the outcome could easily have been different. Kudos to Denice for all the work she has been putting into her game. Jeff Coates from Longview defeated Zac Masiba 7 to 2. Jeff played well and really made a good showing. It was good to see Bobby Zack back from Hawaii. He played Herschel Blaylock from Longview and defeated Herschel 7 to 5. On Saturday morning Sean Stevenson played Dan Louie and was defeated 4 to 7. Sean really put up a good fight. Stan Tourangeau worked

his way through the winners bracket winning most of his games 7 to 3. He had one match against Luke Thomas from Salem that went 7 to 0. Luke only had 3 approaches to the table and really did not have a shot, and then Stan ran 5 racks in a row to finish it. Dan Louie was continuing through the winners bracket until he met up with Justin Lilje. Justin defeated Dan Louie 7 to 3. Justin was playing outstanding. He played Stan Tourangeau for the winner of the winner’s bracket and went hill-hill with Stan. It was a nail biting match to watch. The tournament was great and it was good to see that much outstanding pool being played. A big thanks goes out to the Nite Hawk and their staff for a great job they did this weekend. Also a big thanks goes out to Judy Griffith, Tournament Director, and Steve Peterson, Referee. Last but not least for without them there would not have been a tournament, thanks to all the players in the tournament. Good Job to All!

King of the Spokane open is dethroned By David Teller

Who the heck is Chad Vilmont? That’s what a lot of Spokane shooters were asking after he beat Brady Gollan twice to walk off the Spokane 9-ball open at Black Diamond Billiards in Spokane, Wash. on Jan. 12 and 13, a venue Gollan typically dominates. Their first match was for the driver’s seat and Vilmont wasted no time. Two Gollan misses and Vilmont was up 2-0. Another Gollan miss, a scratch and an early 9 from Vilmont and it was 4-0. After a skirmish of safties over a very stubborn 5 ball, Vilmont routed Gollan, 7-0. Wins like that are common for Vilmont. Originally from Clinton, Iowa, he recently relocated in Snohomish, Wash. He may be new to the Northwest but he’s not new Cindy Sliva to pool and has resume with a long list of regional tournaments throughout the Midwest to his credit. Freshly deposited in the one-loss bracket of the 44-player tournament, Gollan went to work, but dry breaks and accuracy problems made his game continue to sputter. Ryan Parke cashed in on the second chances, taking a 4-0 lead. Gollan cranked it up a few notches and came roaring back 6-4. Parke managed to wrestle another game away from Gollan, but it was too little too late. Gollan took the win, 7-5. In the finale, Vilmont jumped on a dry break by Gollan and then a miss and was out to a 3-1 advantage. Gollan pulled off a quick rally of his own which included a kick for an early 9 to pull ahead 4-3. That’s where the Gollan show ended as Vilmont cashed in every Gollan misstep and coasted to a 7-4 win to cap off the weekend shocker. “I made a few mistakes and he didn’t,” Gollan said after the match. The ladies also had an 8-ball Break down of open 9-ball tournament pay out tournament on the 7-foot 1st $700 Chad Vilmont tables the same 2nd $440 Brady Gollan weekend.

performance to make a run a the final, but there were a few hurdles. Her trip through the one-loss bracket included wins over Shelby Locati 4-1, and Mary Hopkin 5-3. Fernandez was waiting for Foster in the sixth round of the loser’s bracket after getting beat in the match for the driver’s seat by Sliva, 5-4. In their rematch, Fernandez and Foster got into another toe-to-toe match, and again going hill-hill. Foster picked apart a cluttered table and finished it off with a bank out to slip past Fernandez 5-4 and get a shot at Sliva. The hot-handed Foster ran out of steam as the seasoned Sliva commanded table time, running up a 4-0 lead. Then Foster found the hot hand again, running down to the 8, but her bid at any kind of a comeback was dashed when her shot rattled back and forth in the pocket and was spit back on the table, leaving an easy tap in for Sliva to win, 5-0. Shelby Locati was the top female competitor. Because she finished in the tournament payout, the $60 pay out for top female finisher went to Hopkin. Black Diamond Billiards is located at 9614 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Wash. The next event will be a 9-ball tournament plus a women’s 8-ball tournament on Jan. 12 and 13, please call (509) 891-8357 for details.

Stefano Pelinga Inducted CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, November 17, 2012 -- Stefano Pelinga, a 5-time World Champion in Artistic Pool, has been inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. In the presence of approximately 500 VIP guests and many sports stars such as Tommy Lasorda, Mike Piazza, Tony Esposito and Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Stefano has been awarded this honor, becoming a member of this group of legendary Italian Americans. Also inducted that evening were former World Boxing Middleweight Champion Vito Antuofermo, World Series Champion John Smoltz, Stanley Cup champion Mark Recchi, Olympic Medalist Alicia Sacramone, New Jersey Devils CEO and GM Lou Lamoriello, GM of the Los Angeles Dodgers Ned Colletti, President of Comcast SportsNet Chicago Jim Corno and the Venturini Family (Venturini Motorsports). All of them, together with Stefano, are extremely proud and humbled to represent the Class of 2012. Past NIASHF Hall of Famers include Joe DiMaggio, Rocky Marciano, Jake LaMotta, Mario Andretti, Lou Ferrigno, Franco Columbu, Vince Lombardi and Willie Mosconi…to name a few! This year was a special occasion for NIASHF as it celebrated its 35th anniversary since it was founded by George Randazzo in 1977. Stefano, now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada, hails from Rome, Italy, where he has served since 1985 as a police officer for the Italian government (Polizia di Stato), until his retirement in 2011. He began to play pool at the age of 12, drawing inspiration from his favorite singer and actor, Dean Martin. Stefano, currently a 5-time World Champion in Pool Trick Shots, won several titles in Italy in straight pool and nine-ball throughout the late 1970s and 1980s. In 1990, he devoted himself entirely to “Artistic Pool,” commonly referred to in its practice as “Trick Shots.” In a few years, Stefano became not only the reference point but a true idol for fans of this exciting game worldwide, earning the names of “Mr. Trick Shots” and “Il Maestro” from his loyal fans. Stefano has given the sport considerable international exposure by performing exhibitions, organizing competitions and raising funds for a variety of charitable organizations with his personal appearances. He has been featured for over ten years in the prestigious ESPN’s televised tournaments, as well as in articles and on the covers of many pool and billiards publications around the globe. In addition to having won several international titles, Stefano’s achievements have been numerous and remarkable in other facets of the sport: he produced best-selling instructional videos and he was appointed official instructor of cue sports by FIBIS (Italian Billiards Federation) and CONI (Italian Olympic Committee). He was also awarded the honorary title of Professor of Sport Games by the University of Kharkov (Ukraine). Stefano has the largest repertoire of Trick Shots and is able to execute more than 1,000 unique and “fancy” shots. Due to his outstanding achievements, Stefano is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest Trick Shot champions in the history of the sport, and has also earned a spot in ESPN’s Trick Shot Magic Hall of Fame.

“The“The Viper” Viper” An Interview by:

An interview with Professional Player Jayson Shaw

Melissa Little

Melissa “The Viper” Little has been a WPBA Touring Professional for over 10-years, she has represented the USA in Four WPA World Championships and has over 20 top-10 WPBA career finishes. Melissa is currently the housepro at the Wynkoop Brewing Company located in Downtown Denver. She teaches monthly clinics, gives private lessons, and has created a juniors program that promotes billiards education to the local youth. For more information about Melissa please visit: www.melissalittle.com Read more articles by Melissa Little at www.onthebreaknews.com

Where were you born? Jayson: I was born in 1988 in Glasgow, Scotland. Where and when did you first start playing pool? Jayson: The first time I picked up a cue was when I was 5-years old. My father, Charles Shaw was a recognized Snooker player and at a very young age he taught me how to play pool. I remember standing on top of a box in order to reach the pool table. My dad was very adamant about me learning to play with great mechanics and not end up with a funny sidewinder stroke. What was your biggest accomplishment in the sport of billiards? Jayson: When I was 16 years old, I was invited to participate in the IPT events and finished high enough to win $22,000. In 2010, I won the World Men's BlackBall Championships in Limoges, France. The match was televised live on Eurosport, and I defeated France's professional player Sebastien Ramier in the finals 8-3. Blackball is basically like American 8-ball but the tables are tighter, also played on a 7 ft table, and instead of having stripes and solids we have 7 yellow balls and 7 red balls and lastly we have the same black ball for the 8-ball. Did you ever play in a pool league? Jayson: No… In the UK they really don’t have any 9-ball pool leagues. You either start off playing professional Snooker at a young age or you get good enough to come here to America

and try and win the bigger US events. Are you good at any other sports? Jayson: I love to play soccer, golf and boxing. Describe yourself in three words? Jayson: Focused, Ambitious and loyal. If you had to live your life over again, what would one thing you change about yourself and/ or your career? Jayson: Unfortunately I would have to say, I wouldn’t have started playing pool. It seems like it’s a dying sport with no money, if it was my choice to start over I would have played a sport like golf. Viper continued page 28

Just Hanging Out

The Monk

Tim Miller

I remember when I hit my first ball. It was the twelve ball down into the corner pocket. I stood up and said, “I could make a living playing this game”. I have been doing that for close to thirty years. To master something you have to be clear about your purpose. I decided that there was nothing more beautiful than the pure smooth stroke and the sound of the ball settling into the pockets. I’d become a master and show others the beauty of this game. The game has been good to me. I’ve traveled around the world and had the thrill of a visit to the Kremlin. I taught this game on Russian TV with an interpreter and spent a long time in New Zealand working with some great champions. Of course there are the students who proved that a childish person will never learn from a wise man yet my training has helped tens of thousands of player reach world class. I can’t say I have bad memories of difficult students. I do feel bad that they blamed me because they did not reach their goals. It has been an interesting sunset to my career. I went to the Philippines to share The Monk 101 with that country. Fell in love and got married. I am working with a top female player to bring the Philippine Experience to the rooms in Manila. We will be doing a series of workshops in the month of March. Pocket billiards has its own language. I did a workshop in Mexico where no one spoke English. We went through my four strokes and 2-7-2 program completely. It was the same way in Russia. I taught them the strokes via sound. Now, in the Philippines we are getting along just fine. Of course my student Anna is a big help. The of pool game has floundered along for all these years. Many new associations have sprung up to save pocket billiards but they all crashed and burned on the rocks. We have a group of players

now who seem to understand that it is the game we come to see. Performance is so much more valued than personality. That is why it does not matter where you are from we love you if you can play pool. For a while I thought The Monk was fading away and it is time for me to ride off into the sunset so I put together the Philippine Experience. I wanted to leave behind my entire program. I purposely did not include a lot of instructions because you won’t get the knowledge until you succeed with it. Knowledge applied is lesson learned. I did not waste a lot of space trying to offer volumes of pages. I did that with the mammoth Legacy which was 748 pages long. I met students five years later who told me they were still working on that book. Life sure is strange. I wrote a book on how to obtain spiritual freedom. It is one of my best works called FREE PEOPLE. The spiritual side of my life has always been private and still is. One Sunday however, I heard some singing in a church and wandered in. Naturally I stuck out like a sore thumb. I was the only American in the place. To make an interesting story short, I was called up to the front to say a few words. Than to get more to the point, they asked me to come back next Sunday to preach a sermon! They knew nothing about me what so ever. And when I agreed, they all cheered. Now what? What does this have to do with pool you ask? Do you remember when I said you need a purpose in this game? Mine was to show how beautiful this game is and I’ve been doing that for three decades. I write a sermon so I can help people who are struggling to achieve freedom and I end up preaching it in a church in Manila. I plan to be back in the states in May, June and July. Now I am wondering if I will visit pool halls or churches. Be clear about your purpose and it will drive you to where you want to be.

two jopling propositions

Bill Marshall -- known by his pen name of Willie Jopling -- collected, developed and printed a range of interesting shots from simple setup shots to weird techniques to outright flim-flams to interesting legal shots that you might not think of in the heat of battle. Here are two of his shots to test your skill and wit. Once you have them down, you can test your friends and maybe win some lunch money. In shot 1 the goal is to get one of the six balls into each of the six pockets by simply cueing the balls -no cue ball is involved. The rules are that you cannot bank a ball or move the remaining balls when you take a shot. One way that you might try to start is with the 1 into A and the 2 into E and the 6-5-4 into B-C-D in any order. That leaves the 3 for pocket F. That might go on some tables, but not on most. Here’s a hint: start with the toughest shot you’re going to take. I’ll give the answer at the end so don’t read that far until you have tried for a while. In Shot 2 the goal is to make the 9 in the side pocket with the cue ball in hand. The obvious way to do this is to shoot from A and hit right between the 7 and 8. If you hit them simultaneously, the 9 will go in. The only problem with this approach is that it is almost impossible to hit the 7 and 8 simultaneously. I think if someone really practiced at it they might get it one in ten tries. To see that the shot can work that way, put the 6 ball touching the 7 and 8, make sure all four object balls are frozen in a mini-

diamond, and then try the “four ball combo” by shooting as if you were making the 6 straight into pocket C. The trick to this shot is to play the shot from cue ball position B. Barely nick the 7 and then hit the 8. The first contact will start the 9 moving to get it repositioned so the 8 and hit it into the pocket. Experiment with the angle of approach and the amount of the first ball you hit. See how far you can move the three balls away from the side pocket and still have pretty good success. Once you understand this shot you may begin to see similar shots in clusters of balls at games like straight pool, one pocket and even eight ball if the breaker didn’t do a very good job. It’s not the sort of shot you want to shoot but sometimes it’s all that’s possible and the hardest part of such shots is often just seeing them. Have you tried Shot 1 yet? If you’ve given up, read on for the solution. For your first shot, play the 4 into pocket E. This will require some curve since you have to shoot the 4 straight down the table or you will move the other balls. Use both draw and right English for the curve and shoot fairly softly to give the curve time to work. With a little practice you should be much better than 50% on the shot if you work on consistent elevation along with the spin. Once the 4 is gone, the 1-2-3 can go into B-C-D. The 5 then goes into A, leaving a fairly easy 6 into pocket F. If you have a favorite proposition shot, please send it in and you may see it in future column.

Get a Grip

BY: SHARI ROSS

Evolution Revolution?

So here we are generation next with completely different ideals on what our sport is and where we want it to go than our predecessors did. No how do we get there from here? I closed last time with the notion of letting you in to my mind to see some things I think will propel us on our way. I also suggested we stand united and come together as a community helping one another where we can and when we can afford to. Keeping this in mind lets get started on this journey of billiard evolution. As most of you know, because you supported, the NWPA and its players started acquiring items from different areas of the billiard industry and held raffles with these items. After all was said and done, the first year doing this, the women had raised over $2500 to add to their tournaments. Now bear in mind all of this was pool related merchandise which makes it hard to sell to someone who doesn’t have an interest in the game. I would like to commend them on their efforts and think we can expand on their idea. So what would that number have been if they say had spa treatments, weekend get-a-ways, or gift cards that anyone can use or give as a gift, 3, 4, or even 5 times? Its all easy to say but in this economy who in their right mind would “give” us anything? I'm glad you asked. For the most part we would be looking at things that could be a tax right off, and who doesn't want to right them off. It is also possible to purchase things, maybe at a discount, to then sell tickets or hold auctions for a positive number. This not only makes money for us but also infuses money back into our neighborhoods as this is where I see these things coming from. Maybe your hair dresser can give a make over or a gift certificate from your favorite local restaurant, we all have places we go that are struggling as hard as we are and donating to us gives them exposure to a wider area than even your local tv stations. Whether its here is the North West or the East Coast we come from far and wide to play in events taking the chew back from whence we came and sharing it with all who will listen and some that don't.

16 The Break - February 2013

live in where unemployment is at an all time high we have to get money to the business' who employed most of those people. For one reason or another the professional side has been a roller coaster ride with lots of twists and turns and plenty of highs and lows. Lets be humbled take a step back and look at what other, successful, professional sports have done, where they went right and where they went wrong. If we are ever to be taken serious as a sport we must conduct ourselves with the dignity and professionalism of the status that we wish to achieve. Everywhere I look pros from all sports are immersed in major charity work from fund raising balls to meet and greets, why aren't we doing this? If we are to catch the eye of the major sponsors we must be in there faces, in a positive way of course. To broaden our horizons is to expand our reach. Starting charity work and mentor ships are the first steps to be seen in a different light. It can be done and poker is a great example of how quickly perceptions can change and stigmas erased, or at least muted. Some of pokers rise is due to the amount of money involved but if we can attract large sponsors we will have that allure also. Another thing I noticed was those running the show and making the calls do not participate thus eliminating the vested interest and biased opinions. Removing these tendencies makes it easier to make the hard decisions that are for the good of all. I feel it sad times when little league baseball gets more press and good publicity than our sport, one made for kings. Will we breath life back into this royal game an elevated it back to its former status? As I said this is just a start, one persons ideas do not make an answer. If you have feelings or ideas on how to achieve this transformation please speak up. Next time I will be addressing what should and should not be aired now that we are in the age of the web where we can be heard and observed from anywhere in the world. If you are not part of the solution get out of the way!

Van Boening By AzB staff, AZBilliards.com

Shane Van Boening Van Boening did his

ou really couldn't have asked for more in a 21st century pool tournament than the final group of 12 players, out of a full field of 128, who competed in Turning Stone XX, the $25,000-added Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour stop, hosted by the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY from January 10-13. Among them were arguably the best player in the world right now (Shane Van Boening), along with three of his four Mosconi Cup teammates - Mike Dechaine, Johnny Archer and Dennis Hatch. Van Boening's other Mosconi Cup teammate, Brandon Shuff, fell early, in a loss-side double hill battle versus Jason Klatt. Also among the final 12 were Warren Kiamco, Ronnie Alcano, Jayson Shaw (who's won three events on this season's Predator Tour), Corey Deuel, Thorsten Hohmann, Shaun Wilkie, and Jonathon Demet, the 'dark horse' player in the group, who'd been sent to the loss side from among the winners' side final eight by the 12th player on the list, Karen Corr. In the end, it was Van Boening who prevailed, coming back from a defeat in the hot seat match at the hands of Archer, to take the Scorpion down in the finals. Both finished the tournament with 7-1 records. Van Boening won 65% of his games; 75-35, including two shutouts, one in his opening round against David Mills, and the other against Kiamco in one of the winners' side semifinals. Archer won 58% of his games (68-49). Van Boening opened the proceedings with the shutout over Mills and then went through Willie Oney, Robb Saez, fellow Mosconi Cup teammate Mike Dechaine (9-7) and survived a double hill battle against Jayson Shaw, which moved him (Van Boening) among the winners' side final four for the match against Kiamco. Archer opened up with a victory over Bob Cunningham, and then went through Manny Chau, fellow Mosconi Cup teammate Dennis Hatch (9-7), Ron Casanzio and Shaun Wilkie, which moved him into the other winners' side semifinal against Karen Corr.

comes back from semifinals loss to take down Archer at Turning Stone XX shutout number on Kiamco, as Archer was busy sending Corr west 9-4. Van Boening took an early 3-0 lead in the hot seat match that followed, but Johnny went on a run that put him out in front by four when he reached the hill. Van Boening came back to force a deciding 17th match, but Archer hung on to sit in the hot seat, having won what proved to be his last match. Corr moved west to pick up Thorsten Hohmann, who'd survived two straight double hill duels versus Deuel, first, and then Jayson Shaw. Kiamco drew Dechaine, who'd eliminated Shaun Wilkie 9-4 and then, fellow Mosconi Cup teammate, Hatch 9-3. Hohmann put an end to Corr's bid with a 9-5 win, and in the quarterfinals, faced Dechaine, who'd defeated Kiamco 9-7. Dechaine proved to be the third Mosconi Cup team member to go down, falling to Hohmann in those quarterfinals 9-7. Van Boening got his second crack at Archer with a 9-6 win over Hohmann in the semifinals. The final race-to-13 battle stayed close for a little while, but Van Boening took over once Archer had chalked up his fifth rack. Van Boening had a three-point lead at the time, and he kept it going to the eight-point lead that gave Van Boening the title.

2013 MUSIC CITY OPEN Nashville, Tennessee

By Steve McDonald, Tournament Director Photo by: Ricky Bryant For 26 years running, Nashville, Tennessee’s premier billiard club, JOB Billiard Club, hosted the 26th Annual Music City Open 9-Ball Championships held January 16-20, 2013. Budweiser, Alex Brick Custom Cues, Diamond Billiard Products, Simonis Cloth, Nick Varner Cues and Cases, Accu-Rack at Outsvillie.com, and The Bigtruck Show/poolactiontv.com sponsored the event. This was the third year for JOB’s new owner, Ricky Gamble, as Jim Blaylock, previous owner, is still enjoying retirement, piloting his yacht around the country. Ricky still has, former WPBA Touring Pro, Peg Ledman as General Manager of the club and they are keeping the tradition alive for JOB’s. Two Hall of Famers were present for this event... Johnny Archer and Buddy Hall. Also, legendary player Bill Dunsmore entered this event. Legends and tradition are common place at JOB’s. Tournament Director Steve McDonald had a busy

weekend, as 108 open division players and 32 ladies division players showed up for the competition that was held on 7-foot Diamond Smart Tables with Simonis Cloth. With 3 rooms full of Diamond Tables, JOB’s provides the perfect venue for the event, as they can handle a large number of players with ease. And this was one of the strongest fields ever for this event in both the Open Division and the Ladies Division. This year all the action was covered via live streaming by The Bigtruck Show at poolactiontv.com. Rockin’ Ray Hansen did a great job providing fans everywhere with live pool action from JOB’s. Check out poolactiontv.com. And as usual for JOB’s tournaments, Spider was there to take photos of all the action. He got lots of photos for the event, so if you need photos, call Spider at 615-804-4671. Action got kicked-off Wednesday night with a 9-ball, race-to-9, single elimination mini tournament. 68 players entered this event and Johnathan Pinegar topped the field with a win. The main tournament format is 9-ball, race-to-11, double elimination in the Open Division and race-to-7 in the Ladies Division. This tournament has always been

In the open division, Danny Smith won both final sets against Larry Nevel with both sets going hill-hill. That is so close; it’s too bad we can’t have two winners. In the ladies division, WPBA Touring Pro, Nicole Keeney, defended her title from last year by winning over Liz Lovely. On Saturday night, JOB’s always has

Midnight Madness at this event. This always proves to be a great event, as it drew in a whopping 16 players in a single elimination format, race-to-11, paid out first and second place. It was a $500 entry, so that makes $8,000 to the winners. This year Johnny Archer and Eric Durbin won the Midnight Madness. A beautiful $1500 Alex Brick Custom Cue was raffled off and given away just before the finals. The lucky winner was Sam Zuaiter, a local JOB’s regular player.

Master of

Pagulayan and Eberle close out Derby City Classic with wins

BY: AZBILLIARDS.COM By 2 PM on Saturday, the 9-Ball event at the Derby City Classic was down to only 7 men. The redraw found Niels Feijenplaying Alex Pagulayan, Shawn Putnam faced John Brumbackand Shane Van Boening against Francisco Bustamante. Mike Dechaine caught the bye. By now the Master of the Table honors had alread been won by Franciso Bustamante; with his victory in the Banks division and his runner-up finish in the One Pocket. But the Nine Ball division is a BCA points event and so there is a lot on the line for those competitors. First to finish was Shane Van Boening as he defeated Bustamante 9-4 with a quick pace. Then John Brumback defeated Putnam 9-6, but Putnam was the only player in the field to still have his buyback intact so he was able to continue on. The last match was on the Accu-Stats feature table and it was a great one. Alex Pagulayan was leading this match 7-5 when he fouled with a shot clock violation, giving up ball in hand to Feijen. With that Feijen then took that rack and the match narrowed to 7-6 with Feijen breaking. His break came up dry and Pagulayan fired a 1-6 bank combination into the corner pocket and was off to the races. He cleared the table to stand on the hill. On the next break he sent the 9 ball into the corner pocket to claim the win and his pace in the cadre of the final five players. The redraw found Alex Pagulayan catching the bye. Mike Dechaine had to face Shane Van Boening and, as luck would have it, Putnam and Brumback drew one another again and would have to have a rematch of the previous round.

The match between John Brumback and Shawn Putnam was much closer. It went all the way to double-hill with Putnam owning the snapping rights. The 7 ball went down on the break and Shawn had an easy opener on the one ball. The rest of the rack lay at his mercy and he showed none as he cruised through the rack to take the win 9-8. (DCC continued on page 24)

In this round Mike Dechaine defeated Shane Van Boening 9-2 when Van Boenings break shot never showed up for the match. When he did not scratch on the break, his break came up dry and that is all the ammunition that a player of Dechaine’s caliber needs to win.

Francisco Bustamante Wins Derby Banks Title

BY RICKY BRYANT - AZBILLIARDS.COM

The round 12 Semi-Finals had Justin Hall with a bye andFrancisco Bustamante versus Shannon Murphy. The match looked like a run away with Shannon taking the first two games to get on the hill in the race to three. But Bustamante showed his Hall of Fame heart and talent winning the next three games to put Shannon on his first loss. After Shannon exercised his re-buy, the draw was made for round 13. Round 13 had Bustamante getting the bye and the first spot in the finals. Shannon Murphy would have to play Justin Hall for the other spot in the finals. Shannon won the lag but broke dry, Justin came to the table and ran five and out for the first game. The second game Justin broke dry and Shannon came to the table and took down three balls and after two more times to the table took the second game 5 to 0 to tie the match at 1 apiece. Game 3 was a close battle but Justin took it 5 to 4 putting him on the hill. Round 13 was not a lucky number for Shannon as Justin eliminated him in the fourth game and to move on to the finals against Bustamante. Shannon had a great run and finished 3rd. Bustamante won the lag but broke dry and after some back and forth play he took the first game 5 to 2. The second game was no better for Justin losing 5 to 1 and Bustamante was on the hill. But in the third game Justin took a lead and won 5 to 3. In game four Justin scratched to start out down one ball. Bustamante went up by two balls and Justin made three balls to tie the game, with the one ball he owed. Justin then took a lead at 3 balls to two. But Bustamante found an opening to win with the game 5 to 3 and the match to claim the championship.

Bustamante Wins Master of the Table Francisco Bustamante

Bustamante’s “Master of the Table” title was good for an extra $20,000 in prize money. Justin Hall and Pagulayan were 2nd and 3rd in the “Master of the Table” competition.

(continued from page 22)

The next round had Shawn Putnam with the bye so Alex Pagulayan and Mike Dechaine squared off for the rights to the final berth. At first this match appeared that it was going to go the way of Mike Dechaine. He won the first four racks, but Alex Pagulayan took some very risky shots and they all paid off as he kept narrowing the score until we finally stood at double hill with a one rack decider to determine our winner. Pagulayan shot one of the most skillful racks we have ever seen to take the game and the rack.

Dennis Orcollo

Bigfoot 10-Ball Challenge Friday saw the crowning of the Champion of the first “Big Foot� 10 Ball Challenge. The two semi-final rounds on Friday saw Johnny Archer and Ronnie Alcano going home with $5000 and Niels Feijen playing Dennis Orcollo for the $20,000 dollar first prize. The match saw Niels take an early lead but then passed by Dennis. But Niels continued to grind but came up short as Dennis finished it off at 11 to 9. It was a great battle with Dennis taking home the Championship and Niels gets the $10,000 second place.

24 The Break - February 2013

This set up our grand finale between Pagulayan and Shawn Putnam. Pagulayan won the lag and proceeded to break and run the first rack. And the next. But on the next break, Pagulayan was hooked after the break and had to push out. After a brief exchange of safeties Putnam found a shot on the two ball and ran out from there to bring the score to 2-1. Putnam then broke and ran a rack of his own to tie us at two apiece and send a message to his opponent that he was in no mood to spend time in the chair. His next break came up dry and Pagulayan was able to capitalize on that and control the table to claim that rack. When he also broke and ran the next rack he led the match 4-2. The next rack featured a tremendous safety exchange that found Putnam putting Pagulayan in grave danger as he went to the two-foul point and then faced a daunting task to just contact the two ball. He did make a good hit on it and forced Putnam to run out to get close at 4-3. When the next 9 ball fell we were tied at 4 games apiece. Putnam broke and ran the next one to take his first lead of the evening at 5-4. (continued on page 25)

Corey Deuel Wins The Derby One Pocket BY RICKY BRYANT - AZBILLIARDS.COM

Day seven of the 15th Derby City Classic would start with eight players remaining in the One Pocket competition but at the end of the day it would come down to three. The first semi-final match would have Shane Van Boening playing Corey Deuel withFrancisco Bustamante getting the Bye. The match started with game one being a true safety battle going almost one and half hours with Shane Van Boening taking the lead 1 to 0. The second game would go to Corey in a short fifteen minutes. But Shane Van Boening, the 2011 and 2012 One Pocket Champion, would take the next two games to put Corey on his first loss. Round 13 was another three man draw and Corey Duel got the bye. Round 13 would not be as lucky for Shane Van Boening getting eliminated in third place by Francisco Bustamante 3 to 0, setting up the final between Francisco Bustamante and Corey Deuel. Corey played a great first game taking it 8 to 0 setting the tone for the match. The second game Bustamante looked to be making a comeback but Corey closed it out 8 to 3 to go on the hill. And in the third game of the match Bustamante made a critical mistake and Corey Deuel closed out the match 8 to 0, to take the 2013 DCC One Pocket Championship. Bustamante’s continued play in the 9 Ball event, coupled with his second place finish in the One Pocked and his win of the 9-Ball Banks, locks him for the All Around Championship.

Pagulayan

(continued from page 24)

Pagulayan won the next rack to tie us at five and now the championship would be decided by what amounted to a race to four games. At this point the announcement was made that Max Eberle had defeated Dennis Orcullo upstairs and had won the 14.1 division. Max had a great week at Straight Pool. Before taking down Orcullo he defeated Niels Feijen 100-97 (after trailing 97-66 in the match) to get to the finals. Pagulayan then broke and ran the next rack. On his next break he made three balls but scratched. Putnam looked good to get out but he fell funny on the four ball and had to shoot it with the cue behind his back. He made the shot but the cue ball refused to stop rolling as commanded and he scratched in the side pocket. Game to Pagulayan and now he had a two game margin in the match at 7-5.

Putnam won the next rack to come within a single game at 7-6 and with the break he was in control. His break had him snookered on the one ball and when he attempted a jump shot the cue ball left the table to give ball in hand to Pagulayan. Pagulayan ran out to gain the hill. Pagulayan made two balls on the break and had no shot on the first ball. He played a fine safe with both distance and a blocking ball. Putnam missed the ball and Alex had ball in hand to begin his work at the table. The balls were all out in the open, the run was easy, and Alex Pagulayan cleared the table to claim the Derby City Nine Ball Championship for 2013. Pagulayan earned $16,000 for the win, while Putnam took home $8000 for second.

Who were/are your favorite professionals? Jayson: My favorite players are Ralf Souquet and Darren Appleton, because they are both humble, great guys off the table and on and both are clearly world championship quality players. How did you prepare for events? Jayson: I put a lot of time in on the table especially the break; as a matter of fact I practiced my break for 5-hours straight this last week. It takes a lot of discipline to rack for your self and then break each time. But in the end that is what will make you stronger. What was the best advice you were ever given? Jayson: My parents played a huge rolled in who I have become. My childhood neighborhood was not great, I have a lot of friends that ended up in prison and my parents really drove me to not become one of those bad statistics and encouraged me to be focused towards achieving my goals. What is one thing that you enjoy most while playing pool? Jayson: I am living the dream… I love travelling to new places to play pool. If you could say one thing to a young upcoming player what would it be? Jayson: Put a lot of time in on the table, stay in school, and follow your dreams. What’s your Favorite game?

You might be asking yourself " what is a bounty tournament?" designed by Josh "Smitty" Smith it is an 8-ball tournament with $10 entry for men $5 entry for women and added money, the race is 4/3. It begins with a player being chosen as the "bounty". Regular tournament play begins with the object being to knock the bounty player to the losers side - the players who suceeds at this receives a $10 bonus - the next player to knock the bounty player completely out, receives $20 bonus and becomes the "bounty" for the tournament the next month. If the person who was the bounty during this tournament wins -the bounty goes to the player finished second. We try to keep from having the same people be the bounty to rotate the competition and keep it fresh. The winners were 1st - Kings $100 2nd - Roger $70 3rd - Mike W $40 4th - Oscar jr $20 Sam is the next bounty in March date to be announced later

They are two of the best In the business.

January Monthly Open 9-Ball Tournament results

Mt. Pleasant, Mich. – Billiards superstarJeanette Lee, known throughout the world as “The Black Widow,” will be inducted into the Women’s Professional Billiard Association (WPBA) Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Feb. 6 prior to the start of the 2013 WPBA Masters at Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Lee, who has won over 30 national and international titles, is currently ranked as the No. 3 billiards player in the world. Taking the sport by storm, Lee captured the nation’s attention in 1998 after being named “WPBA Sportsperson of the Year” and earning “Player of the Year” honors from both Billiards Digest and Pool & Billiard Magazine. In 2001, Lee was crowned as the World Games Gold Medalist and continued her success in 2003 by clenching the Tournament of Champions title. As she accumulated tournament victories, Lee quickly ascended to No. 1 in the world. “Being inducted into the WPBA Hall of Fame is one of the greatest honors a player can receive,” said Lee. “It's a part of history and to be voted on and recognized in this way by my peers on the tour means so much to me. While I do feel I've contributed to this sport, I still want to continue to bring new eyes to the game and help it grow. Thank you to the WPBA and ESPN for giving me the platform to do so, and I thank God, my family, friends, sponsors, past and present, and of course, my fans, for being there through it all.” As the most recognized face in billiards, Lee has been consistently ranked as one of the most powerful people in the sport by Billiards Digest. Lee is currently working to reclaim her rank as the No. 1 billiards player in the world while raising a family of six with her doubles partner and husband, George near Indianapolis, IN. To follow Lee as she is inducted into the WPBA Hall of Fame, find her on Twitter: @JeanetteLeeTBW, Facebook: facebook.com/jeanetteleetheblackwidow, Instagram: JeannetteLeeTBW and www.BlackwidowBilliards.com . Jeanette Lee is a player representative for the American Poolplayers Association, the world's largest pool league. Among her mentors are the late Gene Nagy, pros Tony Robles, Bob Carman, Jerry Briesath, and Mark Wilson. Said Jeanette, “There are so many others that I have learned from, I want them all to know they were and are appreciated but these names are the ones that I have spent the most time with and really molded my love of the game, in both knowledge, fundamentals and winning attitude!” Happy Hour: Mon-Fri 4-7PM

This month we only had a 10 player field, so they chose a round robin format. Congratulations to the first place winner, Mark B. from Susanville Ca.

Rio in July

CueSports International, Henderson, Nevada (January 4, 2013) – CueSports International (CSI) is expanding the roster of professional tournaments at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas in July 2013. CSI will introduce the inaugural US Open 8-Ball Championship on July 23-27, sponsored by the American Cuemakers Association. The new event will follow the well established pro events produced by CSI – the 14th US Open One Pocket Championship and the 5th US Open 10-Ball Championship. As with the 10-Ball event, the US Open 8-Ball Championship will be $25,000 added and a 2013 Billiard Congress of America (BCA) Points Event. The two BCA Point Events will be held back to back under one roof, greatly assisting US players in their quest for pro points while keeping travel expenses lower. The combination of CSI US Open events in July is truly unique. In the course of 10 days top US and international players will have the opportunity to play in three professional level tournaments in three separate disciplines with a combined total of $60,000 added. The US Open 8-Ball and US Open 10-Ball fields will be limited to 96 players and the US Open One Pocket will sport a 64 player field. In 2010 CSI, which is also the parent company of the BCA Pool League (BCAPL) and USA Pool League (USAPL), launched the US Open 10-Ball Championship in conjunction with the BCAPL National Championships, known as “The Greatest Pool Tournament in the World!” CSI added HD live video streaming by TheActionReport.com (TAR) and free stream feeds to each of the host hotel rooms. In 2011, CSI added the US Open One Pocket Championship and the 14.1 High Run Challenge.
