VNEA International Championships

by: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

It has been 5 years since I was at the International VNEA Championships. Most of the teams that I have talked to over the past 20 odd years don’t get their trips, room and entry paid for. We do here in Bozeman, Montana. Although, any team that qualifies by playing in the league, also qualifies for VNEA Nationals in Las Vegas. Our system is different, we have team championships, two men’s and 1 women’s tournament. In the larger league the top two teams win the trip, in the other open league and the women’s league only the winners qualify for their team entry, their rooms (for 5 or 6 nights) and travel money. Most of the teams that I have talked to over the years had raised money for their trips. I personally would like to thank Rocky Mountain Gaming and League Operator Don Lutes for their generosity in supporting the leagues and tournaments. This year was very special to me. I had my son, Mike, playing on my team. This was his first year playing leagues. The team’s cohesiveness and light-hearted unpredictabilities made it easy and enjoyable to win league and the team trip. Las Vegas hasn’t changed a lot and we found ourselves winning our first match, although, we lost our next two and was out of the tournament. We found ourselves watching other teams from home and especially

the “Ladies of the Felt” the Cats Paw Women’s Team. All good players, that came together to make a great team. Watching the agony on their faces when missing a shot or losing a game (they didn’t let that happen often) to watching their teamwork, commaraderie – it was an honor for me to watch and celebrate their wins. Here is what they had to say about their experiences. JENNIFER PAVLOVICK About the first of every year I start getting excited about VNEA Nationals and this year was no exception. 2006 was my third year to make the pilgrimage to pool’s May Mecca and although I always bring my positive attitude and drive to play well with me to Vegas, a sense of realism also tags along as I just don’t know ahead of time who I will face and how the tables will play out. Perhaps that sense of “not knowing what is going to happen” or better yet “anything CAN happen” is the most exciting part of playing pool at nationals. Just like looking over the edge of a

rollercoaster car to the ground below, many of the matches we played are a blur to me, while my memory of the last match out of the final 32 bracket we

Jennifer Pavlovick played, along with the championship match, is still so vivid that I can replay them in my mind. For all of my games, I remember being focused on a single thing . . . just win your games and the team will win the match and . . . oh . . . breathe. My favorite memory is the match we played to get into the championship match; it was against Phoenix I, a team from South Dakota. They were a strong team, but we were shooting really well. The match came down to the very last game and because we had taken advantage of some opportunities earlier in the match, I only needed to pocket 2 balls to secure the win. My opponent had the break, but missed pocketing anything. I remember stepping to the table and looking the 27 billion different options, before saying to myself “Jennifer, make this easy on yourself. Look for stop shots and pocket the two easiest balls.” After losing our third match in the final 32 bracket, we

Hours: 11:30AM-2AM

pretty much played back to back to back to back matches on Friday and it was quite a rush watching that second ball disappear into the pocket and realizing that we’d just come through the losers side and would be playing for the championship that next morning. I can’t say enough about Loreen, Tina, and Aimee. I couldn’t ask for three better teammates and quite a few times they pulled the team back into a match with huge wins. They really did make my job at shooting in the anchor spot easy. A big thank you goes out to our sponsor Tommy (The Cats Paw). It’s great to have a sponsor that will throw in some extra bucks to help finance a Vegas trip for four female pool fanatics. Hopefully Tommy’s had the chance to brag about our great performance to some of his buddies. I certainly didn’t expect the wild ride I found myself on during the team competition, and now I’ve had one, I can’t get to that next wild ride fast enough. AIMEE NEEL My first time being in Vegas to play pool was amazing! I was just so happy to have a 9 day vacation in Vegas that I wasn’t really focused on pool until I walked into the ballrooms and you have 200 plus table laid out in front of you. When we started playing, I really didn’t know what to expect. All these teams got here the same way we did, they’ve got to be good. And then we just kept winning! A lot of our matches can down to the last game, which lead to a lot of nervous pacing for me :) It was just so surreal! It’s like you are so busy playing that you don’t stop to think about where you are in the

Aimee Neel bracket until - Oh my gosh - we’re in the finals! The one thing that sticks out in my mind the most is the support from everyone watching us. We had all the people from

VNEA International Championships the other Montana team routing us on! It’s pretty neat to make a hard shot or win a game and turn around to 20 plus people wanting high fives!! I think it says a lot about the Montana players! One moment I will never forget...I was playing my last game of the final match. I got out of shape on my last ball before the eight. I ended up having to kick at the ball, I made it - and the crowd went crazy! I couldn’t even look at them because I thought I would cry. And then I made the eight and won the game, but the win wasn’t as memorable as the support from all my friends and family!! The only thing I want to stress (and I know the other girls agree with me 100%). The support from our family and friends made all the difference in the world! Thanks for being there to watch and support our matches! LOREEN CAREY “Someone said to me (in Vegas) a few years ago, ‘Wouldn’t you like to play in there (finals) someday?’ I responded, ‘Yeah I would’ – And now I have. It is just amazing.” Loreen has taken 2 nd place at the Montana State 8-Ball Championships and when we asked her how winning second in Las Vegas compared, she answered, “Really cool, because it’s an international event. And it was really fun to have done it as a team. It’s way bigger than state.” This is the first time this team has gone to Vegas. They have been playing together for two years now. Loreen shoots with a Predator Cue, plays pool two nights a week and every other weekend. For a mother with children, that’s quite remarkable. She learned to play pool from local player Shawn Spence and just last summer worked with another local player Dave Seavey on what she called “nasty little drills”. Here is how Loreen described the drills, “Dave would take the balls and throw

the team. We’d show up at the match site, play a couple of warm up games…not really saying much. When it was time to start, we’d all tap knuckles and quietly say “here we go again, lets do it!”

It was grueling but I learned how to map a table.” “I would like to thank everybody that stayed and watched and cheered us on. The fans were great. Some were there from as early as our 1st or 2nd games. It really meant a lot. Everybody would stop (husbands, boyfriends, and friends) and check on us. It’s just great how Montana sticks together. There’s nothing like it. No matter how we scrap here – we really pull together down there, cause we all end up playing against each other here.” TINA HANSEN Nearly every match came down to the last 2 or 3 games…those were very tense moments! Jim was so supportive throughout the whole tournament. I think it was harder for him to watch us than it was for us to play. I’d always hear his cheer over everyone else’s when we made a critical shot, or won a game. Once we got into the final 32, there was a sense of relief. We had never gotten that far before and had fought hard to get there. With each match after that there was a sense of determination over

Tina Hansen We didn’t come into the tourney with expectations to win it all. In fact, before we even played our first match, Loreen asked me “If we lose out, do we want to play in the second chance tourney?” That was all we heard on that subject. We only ran across one team twice. They had put us in the loser bracket early on. The second meeting was in the final 32 (we both had one loss). It was a very tight match. In fact, I think that was when we had to play a tie breaker round. We played so many matches….it’s all kind of a blur. Once we got further into the brackets, matches came up fairly quickly. We didn’t have much time between for anything other than a quick bite to eat and an occasional nap.

EVERETT, WA In the past this tournament has drawn the best of the best and this weekend wasn’t any different. This has been Shotze’s longest running tournament and if it keeps bringing in the players it should be around for some time. They came in droves from everywhere Canada, Oregon, Eastern Washington and of course, our own from the nearby areas, made up the strong field of (58) players and (6) of them women. The payout for this weekend was a cool $4,420. Lots of money on the line for those who can survive the first day of competition. Mike Vidas from Canada went undefeated through the tournament. Mike’s matches were Mark Smith (7-3), Harry Platis (7-3), J.D. (7-1), Randy Camantigue (8-5), Todd Marsh (8-1) and Paul Potier (8-4). Paul Potier also from Canada had another fine tournament. Paul’s matches were Kevin Fong (7-0), Brad Hornshaw (7-6), Nick Lopez (7-4), John Horsfall (8-6), Glenn Atwell (8-0), the loss against Mike Vidas (4-8), Todd Marsh (6-2) and then back at Mike Vidas for one race to (9) for all the marbles. Paul seemed to have the upper hand in the beginning of the match. But Mike wasn’t going to just lie down and give it away. Mike put some games together and before anyone could say, “When’s the next tournament”, it was over. The final score was Mike Vidas (9) and Paul Potier (6). Julie Valdez Ford and I would like to congratulate both players for a fabulous tournament.

This month’s Artistic shot is from the Follow Discipline and has a Degree of Difficulty(DOD) 7. This shot has also appeared on ESPN’s Trick Shot Magic. To set this shot up place F ball centered between the pocket points. Next place E ball one half of a ball to the left of pocket E and one half of an inch out from cushion # 3, the long rail. The cue ball is in hand anywhere behind the X line.The objective of this shot to shoot the cue ball to E ball, carom to cushion #3, then rebound and curve back to F ball. You make both object balls as pocket letter designated. A scratch is allowed and you may contact an extra cushion by F ball. Here are a few helpful hints on how to execute this shot. I place my cue ball centered from pocket A to E ball, not as diagrammed. Keep your cue level to the plane of the table. You don’t need as much high,(follow) on the cue ball as you think you do. Stroke at a moderate speed and not with a lot of power. Based on a 13 mm tip, I use about two-thirds of a tip of left English. Don’t forget to follow through. Have fun with this one.

Let’s Play Cowboy! By: Bob Jewett of the SFBA

San Francisco Billiard Academy No, this doesn’t involve horses and Indians. Cowboy is a game played on a pool table that will teach you new skills as you have to solve new problems. It’s probably best for beginning to intermediate players, but even champions will find it difficult when played on a snooker table. A game of Cowboy has three phases: mostly pocketing balls, caroming from one ball to another, and scratching on the final shot on purpose. The diagram shows the starting position. The three is on the foot spot, the five on the center spot, and the one ball on the head spot. The cue ball is behind the line at the start and after scratches. For the break shot, the cue ball must contact the 3 ball first. The goal is to score 101 points. Bob Jewett For the first 90 points, you score points by pocketing any of the object balls or by getting the cue ball to hit two or more balls. Pocketing balls gets you the number of the ball. If the cue ball hits two balls, you get one point, and if you get the cue ball to hit all three object balls, you get two points. If you sink all three balls and contact all three with the cue ball, you would get a total of 11 points for the shot (1+3+5+2). Don’t mark the scores up too quickly, though. If you foul, all the points made in that turn at the table are lost. Like most games, you shoot until you miss or foul. There is a special rule for 90. Your score has to land exactly on 90 and can’t jump over it on one shot or the shot is a foul and you lose the whole score for that inning. Points between 91 and 100 must all be scored by caroms, so pocketing a ball is a foul. Also, jumping over 100 is a foul; you have to land on 100 exactly.

Email Questions to: jewett@sfbilliards.com harada@sfbilliards.com mejia@sfbilliards.com

Your final point, the 101st, is scored by scratching off the one ball. This shot must be called and you must not sink any balls. It is a simple, called scratch. In fact, sinking balls or even contacting balls other than the one with the cue ball is a foul. Balls spot back up on their starting spots. If a spot is blocked, the ball is held off the table until the spot is available. If the one ball is blocked from returning, and the player is going for his last point, the balls are all spotted like for the opening shot. (The rules aren’t clear, but the player should get to play straight at the one in this case.) The usual fouls apply, and three in a row is loss of game. To really build up your speed control, try to score most of your points by caroms. It’s also interesting to see how many times you can pocket the five ball in a row off the center spot. Running several three balls off the foot spot is pretty easy if you have your stun and draw shots working well. For a more detailed list of rules, check out the BCA rule book, which also has about 30 other games, or look for Cowboy on-line. Have fun!

Over-practicing: Quality over quantity “Practice, practice, practice,” we’re constantly told. “Practice makes perfect,” we’ve also heard. Well, is there such a thing as too much practice? Is it humanly possible to over-practice? I’m not ashamed to admit that there is and I’ve been guilty of it. I’m sure we all have on occasion. I’m not talking about the years we’ve been practicing. I’m referring to the time frame of each practice session. Of course, we may not realize it at the time, but I’ll share with you some indications of when enough should be enough. Over-practicing can have almost as much of a negative effect as not Samm Diep practicing at all. The point of overpracticing is unique for each person based on your stamina and learning curve. During a productive practice session, you might reach a high where your performance is at its best and you’re doing everything you set out to do. This may mean that you just ran multiple consecutive racks, shot 100 perfect stop shots, or just have not missed a ball in a very long time. Whatever it is you’re working on, you’re mastering it and it feels great. Naturally, when this happens, our instinct is to maximize this feeling. We want it to last forever. We don’t want to stop. Sometimes we just feel invincible. Unfortunately, this climax ultimately finds an end and we discover ourselves struggling to hold on. When this happens, we lose focus, our purpose shifts, we miss, and we are no longer performing at our best. Have you ever had the best practice of your life only to end it on a sour note because you couldn’t leave well-enough alone? When I pass that window of practice ecstasy but still push myself anyway, I feel greedy for not walking away ahead. It’s like not leaving when you’re up at the Blackjack table and just losing all your winnings back, and more. Of course, I don’t realize it until the practice is over already, but by then it’s too late. You, however, don’t have to make the same mistake. When you catch yourself missing consecutive shots after a long run of not missing any shots, it may be time to call it a night. Don’t sit through a string of bad cards. When you’ve had a quality practice and complete the perfect run out, be proud of that. Take your money and run. Practice ending your sessions on a positive note. Set out to work on something specific (i.e. shoot 100 stop shots, successfully shoot a particular pattern 25 times, or run 75 balls without touching a rail). Complete that task and move on or wrap-up your practice. When you catch yourself aimlessly trying to top your last benchmark then your purpose has shifted from the skill you’re working on, to just practicing to practice. It’s more productive to accomplish your practice goals in an hour than to have a mediocre four-hour practice session. Quality is better than quantity. Thank you for this opportunity to share my thoughts and experiences as a fellow pupil of this magnificent game. Please always feel free to contact me should you ever have any questions or comments regarding anything I’ve written. I’ve had the honor of meeting many of you during this year’s BCA, VNEA, and ACS national events. Thank you for your support and for introducing yourselves. Shoot ‘em up & keep lovin’ this game!

Byrne’s Complete Book of Pool Shots

ROBERT BYRNE

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: B YRNE has won R OBERT tournaments in 8-ball, 9-ball and straight pool. In 1999 he won both the National Senior and National Amateur tournaments in threecushion billiards. Named “Best Billiard Writer” by Billiards Digest, his books and videos on pool have sold nearly a million copies. Byrne was inducted into the Billiard Congress of America’s Hall of Fame in 2001. He lives in Dubuque, IA.

Editors Note: Excerpts reprinted with permission of the author, Robert Byrne.

Degrees of Elevation In this diagram are a few common degrees of elevation. Halfway between 45 degrees and 90 degrees is 67.5 degrees, rounded off here to 67 degrees. Halfway between 67.5 and 90 is 78.75 degrees, rounded off here to 78 degrees. You aren’t limited to these angles, but they work for many small massés. A vertical cue is used for straight draw action - no curve is involved unless you hit an object ball or a rail at an angle. Some players don’t change their grip hands when they raise the cue for a downward blow, no matter how great the angle. Others hold the cue from underneath when the angle gets greater than 40 or 50 degrees. Most of the shots in this section require a deft and accurate stroke rather than power, so for the steep angles I recommend the underhand grip using the pads of the thumb and first two fingers and a motion similar to throwing a dart. When practicing massés, chalk up after every try to minimize the miscues.

Chip Pool Classic From Dick Jones, Manager/Tournament Director

Final standings for the “Chip” Classic pool tournament held at Eagles Club #326, Bozeman, Montana. This tournament was held Saturday June 17, 2006 with a great turn out of 27 players. A special Thank You goes out to all the players that showed up, and our added money sponsors. For those of you who might have missed the explanation of what a “Chip” Pool Tournament is I will quickly explain it to you. The game is 8-Ball, Singles. Mike Schaff When you pay your $10 entry fee, you receive 5 poker style chips. The format is a race to ONE (1) (an absolute brutal game). Anyone can win. If you win you stay on the same table and wait for your next opponent. You are paid immediately for every game you win, instant gratification. If you lose, you must turn in one of your chips to the tournament director and then wait to be assigned to another table. The winner of course is the player with any chips left. Every player won at least one game. Everybody made money. What’s left of the prize fund is paid out to the final four players. 1st $80 Mike Schaff, Bozeman $60 Ernie Nielsen, East Helena 2 nd 3 rd $40 Gary Schram, Belgrade $20 Randy Sayre, Billings 4 th Again, I want to thank all the players that showed up.

Philly Heat CUE PEN Main Street Productions is pleased to announce that we will include the CuePen in our new feature film “9-Ball”. Currently in pre-production, “9Ball” stars real-life WPBA superstar player Jennifer Barretta in the lead role, and will be directed by Anthony Palma of Main Street Productions. Palma also created the story, co-wrote the screenplay and is producing the film. “9-Ball” follows the story of a young amateur player as she strives to become the Women’s 9-Ball Champion of the World. CuePen.com was generous enough to create a distinctive pen especially for the movie “9-Ball”. These pens will display the moniker of the “9-Ball” lead character Gail, the “Philly Heat”. We are very excited to include these outstanding pens in the film, and we feel that not only will the Philly Heat CuePen help authenticate the picture, but that the CuePen will also add a charming element to the movie. The APA, the WPBA, the BCA, and major manufacturers Olhausen Billiards and Aramith have all shown their full support of the film. “9-Ball” has been written about in The Break, Pool & Billiard Magazine, Billiards Digest, Cue Times and AZ Billiards. Please visit our website www.mainstreetproductions.com to view the Philly Heat CuePen and for more information on the film.

Spokane TAP The Association for Pool is a National Handicap Coed 8-Ball and 9-Ball League. Mark Sprecher is the Spokane League Operator. TAP is a fast growing league in the Spokane Area. Players like the No Slop Format of TAP and feel their skill level has improved. Some of the big differences between TAP and some of the other leagues is that TAP teams have a 25 Rule (i.e. players handicap can add up to 25 instead of 21 or 23 in some other handicap leagues). The 25 Rule means higher rated players 6 and up have a better opportunity to participate. The Spokane League also puts on a number of tournaments for all who want to play. For additional information contact Mark Sprecher at 509-710-2670 or 509-468-4348. Visit the TAP league website at www.tapleague.com.

League Policy Reminders The following are some key BCA Pool League policies to keep in mind for the new league year. The current league year started June 1, 2006 and ends May 31, 2007. New, starting June 1, 2006 – a player will pay a $10 league membership fee to each local league the player joins during the year. Unfortunately, the old policy of paying only once cannot be effectively administered. In spite of the good intentions of the majority of League Operators, membership information is all too often delayed or incomplete, which prevents the national office from being able to verify that the player signing up for one league is the same player that already joined in another league. This constant verification problem consumes hours of research.

Why Worsted? Pat Sheehan

For the past 58 years I have been “The man of the cloth”. I don’t get a great deal of time pushing balls after it is on the bale but a lot of time putting it on. My father and I traveled five states on the west coast and my sons have followed along. We have known a lot of fabrics and what to expect from them. In the 90 years that my family has pulled and stretched we have received a lot of comments from players of all types and shared knowledge with manufacturers. Until the mid 60’s every thing was 100% wool. Dad was 100% Brunsco #1 and it became my favorite. Jake Schaffer Jr insisted that we use Simonis #1 on the Billiard tables and Simonis #2 on the Pool and Snooker tables that we covered for him. Willie Mosconi always wanted Brunsco #1 and cringed when he had to play on the rubber backed on Brunswick Monarch. I got plenty of complaints and constructive criticism at our evening snack when he would unwind after his exhibitions. “How can you play your best game under the worst conditions?” he would comment. As nylon was able to give durability to the surface things began to go downhill with woven fabrics. The industry began to go for thicker and heavier fabrics. I stayed with Mali’s Club which was 100% wool directional and then a fabric called double weave. I guess that not enough people cared as much about quality of play as I did, so these fabrics were discontinued. I was then forced to put the thick fuzzy stuff on until J.P. Stevens was asked to come up with the answer to the Brunsco #1 by Brunswick; however the plants in Virginia were devastated by a flood and the Brunswick Company decided to go out of the Billiard business. J P Stevens was stuck with this cloth and was only too happy to sell it to me at a very good price. It was 100% wool worsted and I was a happy camper, until it ran out. Simonis was no longer available in the U.S. so I was in big trouble. I did the carom tables at the Elks Club in Medford and they had been

shipped this cloth from Spain called Gorina. I was back in business, as soon as I got back home I recovered my 4 x 8 table and played pool nonstop for a week. The Type A which first came out was supposed to be for three cushion but it did play so well on a pool table that I was sold. Some of the pool players began to complain that #1 it was too fast, #2 you couldn’t draw the cue ball and #3 it was not for them. It was being used on the practice table at the Ocean Shores tournament in Washington State. Mike Massey walked over and listened to the conversation and the ration I was getting. Mike picked up his cue and drew the cue ball off one object ball and the cue ball went five rails. “Can’t draw the ball?” said Mike as he began to play Finger Pool. “I love this cloth.” Simonis soon returned to the U.S. and worsted fabrics began to take over the pool game as it had with three cushion. It opened the game to a new level. You could get the object ball to the pocket with less force and not worry about the button hook roll on the soft shot and draw the ball exactly where you wanted it to go. It made pool fun to play and the games shorter and more exciting. The only complaints on the worsted fabrics have come from the top players. They feel that the notch below them doesn’t have the great stroke that they have to get to where they need to go. The Model “T” Ford was a great car and it took a great deal of skill to get from point A to point B, but a Lexus is a lot more pleasing to drive and it does not need a great stroke to crank the engine. There are plans to go back to the woven fabrics for the major tournaments. I do hope that they can come up with a very shear well manicured surface of a thin, moisture resistant true 100% wool or we may see some three hour matches when the room is hot and humid. More on this very important topic next month. Tune in same time same station with The Man of the Cloth.

Alcano and Lining Qualify from: John Kutcher - Tournament Director

LAS VEGAS, NV Comments “Well, day one is over (its 11:30 pm) and all seems to have gone reasonably well. We had a couple of games that were issued warnings for slow play but everything else was smooth. This is a pretty good field and I’m glad I didn’t have to face it. I haven’t seen to many run outs in a row, maybe three for the high. We cut our pockets down to 4 ½ in. when we recovered the tables so that might have something to do with it.” “World champions Lou Butera, Ed Kelly, and Paul Brienza were here and a lot of the players got a kick out of talking with them. Tomorrow we should see Mary Kinneston and Frank Alverez. I’m also expecting to see reporters from Gaming Today, a national sports and gaming paper and from the local CBS affiliate so we might have some interviews and maybe a sound bite to send you. The TV station wanted to know if Lou and I could match up for them to get on film. If I get beat please don’t put it on the web site!” “I also showed the players a piece of the heavy nap cloth and they were amazed how thick and nappy it is.” “Today we got to witness a rare feat in pool. Ramil Gallego ran nine consecutive racks and almost ten Ronato Alcano and out. When he got to five people began to talk and gather around the table. As he broke each rack the balls spread pretty wide open and he executed run after run perfectly. The crowd all thought he would run ten and out. But in the tenth he ran all but the eight ball and got a bad kick trying for very difficult position. And he still almost made a tremendous kick shot. Ramil is definitely a force that will have to be reckoned with in future events.” Challenge Matches Four players who have been eliminated will play against IPT Pro Frank Alvarez . Challengers who beat Frank will earn a free entry into a qualification tournament of their choice. If Frank wins, he will win $1,000 per match. First Match: Richard Burns - 10 | Frank Alvarez - 4 Second Match: Thomas Hernandez - 10 | Frank Alvarez - 1 Third Match: Gerado Jamito - 10 | Frank Alvarez - 7 Fourth Match: Ramil Gallego - 10 | Frank Alvarez - 6

ACS Shines in Vegas from: John Lewis (articles and photos courtesy of the ACS)

The American CueSports Alliance (ACS) offered a bit of everything in debuting its Nationals in Las Vegas at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, June 10-17: competition in thirty-two divisions, unveiling juniors and super-

more opportunities to play and to cash than ever before in a national amateur championship, and any free time away from a match was gobbled up with plenty of side events adding to the non-stop fun going strong for eight days in the desert! Gary Benson and his staff at High Country Promotions did their usually excellent job seamlessly running the entire affair on 104 Valley tables, and the ACS board of directors listened to its membership and spread the added money throughout most divisions in 2006, with total prize monies again exceeding $150,000.. In addition, those entries placing out of the

money in any primary event could re-enter at no cost to vie for prize monies in the many and varied “Sports” divisions. Entries in most divisions met or exceeded numbers in the inaugural 2005 Championships in Reno. “I’ve been involved in producing fourteen national championships in Las Vegas, and this was the most fun I’ve had at any Nationals,” exclaimed ACS Executive Director John Lewis. “When people weren’t playing to their heart’s content on a daily basis or observing other sets of skills in the 3-ring circus of various cue disciplines we had set-up on the side, they seemed to be smiling or laughing non-stop. The tournament room was packed, but you didn’t feel like a sardine, and there was a true sense

of family or a desire to make a new friend’s acquaintance at almost every table. Great vibes all week long!” There were hundreds of storylines in this event, but a few that stood out included Steven Lenz, a winner of the Sportsman’s division in 2005, going all the way to lay claim to the Men’s 9-Ball singles crown; Bonnie Plowman taking off another national championship – both in the Women’s Master 8-Ball Singles and in anchoring the Women’s Master Team Champions, “Greenfield’s Slightly Competitive.” Nova Scotia’s Pat Briand knocked off perennial national champion Jesse Bowman in both the 9-Ball Singles AND the Masters 8-Ball Singles…yet failed to cash himself in either!

SACRAMENTO, CA Tony Chohan spent the first part of this week, dominating a field of 37 other players at Hard Times to win the Summer Jamboree One Pocket Division. Chohan started with wins over Gandy Valle, Ed Ames and David Reljic by a combined score of 9-2. He appeared to get stronger after that as he cruised by Mark Haddad 3-0 and then crushed Richard Burns 3-0 in eleven minutes to take the hot-seat. Meanwhile, Reno Open champion Dennis Orcollo was taking a much longer path to the finals. Orcollo, taking advantage of his shot making ability, scored wins over Jeff

Gregory and Warren Kiamco before falling to Mark Haddad. Orcollo came back with wins over Valle, Billy Palmer, Lance Salazar, Haddad and Burns to earn his place in the finals against Chohan. Orcollo might not have needed classic one pocket experience to win his earlier matches, but the difference between shot-making and one pocket strategy became evident early in the finals as Chohan raced to a 4-0 lead before Orcollo was able to win a game. Chohan finished off the match in the next game for the

5-1 win. 9-Ball Event It was yet another perfect event for Filipino sensation Dennis Orcollo at the Hard Times Summer Jamboree 9-Ball Division as he went undefeated to take first place. Orcollo’s path to the hot-seat started with wins over Don Olson and David Reljic by a combined score of 18-5. That was just the beginning though, as Orcollo then scored back to back 9-3 wins over Amar Kang and One Pocket Division winner Tony Chohan. Orcollo’s next match was WPBA star Melissa Little who was having a great tournament with wins over Deo Alpajora and Chris MacDonald to her credit. Little’s run on the winners side would be brought to an abrupt stop by Orcollo with a 9-2 victory. The match for the hot-seat saw Canadian Tyler Edey stay with Orcollo up to the 7-7 mark when Orcollo ran the last two racks to win the match.

event with a field of 25 players including Melissa Little, Megan Minerich, Rachael Abbink and Michelle Rakin. The hot-seat match in that event saw Michelle Rakin defeat Rachael Abbink. On the one loss side, Melissa Little bounced back from an early loss to Abbink and cruised to a rematch with Abbink in the semi-finals. Little won that battle 7-5 and then went on to defeat Rakin 9-5 in the finals for first place.

One of the players to fall to Edey on the winners side was Filipino Gandy Valle. Valle came back through the one loss side with wins over Mark Haddad, Edwin Montal, Melissa Little and Santos Sambajon to earn another shot at Edey in the semi-finals. Valle got his revenge with a 9-2 win over Edey to earn his place in the finals.

The 8-Ball Bar Table Championship on June 3, 4 2006 at Uncle Jack’s brought 38 players trying to take home the bragging rights as the best bar box 8-ball player in the Northwest. Rich “The Hat” Geiler showed why he is still considered one of the best players in the Northwest but not without having to deal with a solid veteran in Jeremiah Johnson in the final and some of the best talent in the state of Washington such as Dick Trichler, Eddie Mataya, Val, Jeremiah Johnson, Tyler Luce and Jeremiah Johnson again for the Championship. The ladies had their fun on June 17, 18 2006 when Uncle Jack’s hosted our first Women 9Ball tournament. With a format of races to 9 on the A side and 7 on the elimination rounds players got

for shooting like Champions. Our staff here at Uncle Jack’s wants to say Thank you to all the pool players who supported this tournament. See you on the next tournament.

AILEEN DIMMICK DOMINATES JILLIAN’S By Chris Rogers I’ve often said that the nicer the weather is on the weekend, the more likely there is a big tournament keeping us inside in the dark. If that is true, then the June 24th, 25th NWPA tour stop at Jilllian’s was huge. Luckily, it was Jillian‘s, where we were playing with the great views, equipment, and service, making it a pleasure being stuck inside. Each morning a continental breakfast of bagels, cream cheese, croissants, fresh fruit, coffee and OJ was provided for players and spectators and Kary, Tiffany and the staff spoiled us rotten. There were 36 players from Oregon, Alaska, Canada and Washington competing for the prize money and a paid entry to a WPBA Tour stop. Thanks to our President, the next two tour stops for 2006 are also WPBA qualifiers, with the final two in the works to also become qualifiers. Visit www.nwpatour.com for more information. What has been great to see this year is the number of new players as well as the regulars and especially the different names playing on Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, the eight players left started at 10am with the A side matches of Kim Jones losing to Kim Sijer 7-2 and Martha Hartsell taken down by Aileen Demmick. Aileen’s maiden name of Pippen should be well known to WPBA followers, as she was a highly ranked Touring Pro as of 2002 when she took a hiatus to start a family. On the B side, Shari Ross beat Linda Carter 7-4 before losing to Kim Jones 7-3 and a hard fought battle had Liz Cole edging Julie Valdez 7-5 before herself being edged out by Martha 7-5. Aileen just got by Kim Hole 7-6 in the first round on Saturday but dominated her matches after that and won the point 7-3. Meanwhile Kim Jones was also in stroke, beating (NWPA continued on page29)

Atwell Takes Cadillac Island Story by Mike Jensen

A strong field of 9-Ball players came to the June 24th & 25th Open Tournament at the Cadillac Island Casino in Longview WA. Glenn Atwell, Jesse Allred, Dan Louie, Stan Tourangeau, Pat Vise, Ivan Doty, Jerry Johnson, and Mike Stevens just to name a few of the strong forty player field of Northwest who’s who. I think you could make a healthy BCA National Team from this list. Glenn continued his winning way, sneaking by Stan T. in a hill, hill battle Glenn Atwel that could have ended with Stan the victor. Glenn faced Jesse Allred for the point with a 5-0 lead only to see Jesse come storming back to take the lead and win the match point. Jesse was the winner of our last open 9-Ball tournament and was looking pretty comfortable in the winner’s seat. Meanwhile, Stan the man, was working through the one loss side with wins over Mike Dietchman, Jerry Johnson, Pat Vise and Frank Bess to face Glenn again to see who would take on Jesse in the finals. Once again Glenn would defeat Stan to face Jesse in the one race to thirteen finals. Local favorite Ivan(Butterbean)Doty had a good tournament finishing 5th in a very strong field Ivan had wins over J D and Dan Louie. Ivan commented that, “That was the first time I ever had a win over Dan Louie in any tournament.” Meanwhile, in the final match Glenn once again jumped on an 8-0 lead before he finally let Jesse have a look at a ball. Jesse fired right back, putting five racks together before missing a one ball. Glenn then took control again to finish the match for a 1st place finish. Thanks to all the players for their participation and for the great sportsmanship shown by everyone. Our first tournament at the new Kennewick Island Casino is July 14th, 15th, 16th. It will be an Open 9-Ball. Please plan to attend. All players are welcome.

7th Annual Jamie Moyer Bowling and Billiards Tournament Raises Over $225,000 Proceeds to benefit Pediatric Palliative Care and Child Life Programs at Children’s Hospital Seattle, WA- Over 250 participants joined Jamie Moyer, Richie Sexson, Gil Meche and other Mariners, as well as Seahawks Matt Hasselbeck, Grant Wistrom and Marcus Trufant to raise over $225,000 at the 7th Annual Jamie Moyer Celebrity Bowling and Billiards Tournament on Sunday, June 4.

The bowling tournament was won by Mariners starting pitcher Gil Meche, who took the title from last year’s champion, Mariners reliever Matt Hasselbeck J.J. Putz. “We are very excited about the success of this event,” said Moyer Foundation Executive Director, Gary Pollock. “This is the first time the Seahawks and Mariners teams have come together to support the annual tournament. It’s such a unique opportunity for fans to interact one-on-one with their sports heroes, and at the same time support a great cause. We are incredibly grateful to all the players and patrons who turned out to support the tournament this year.” In the past two years, the event has raised nearly $500,000 for Pediatric Palliative Care and Child Life Programs at Children’s Hospital.

New President Elected The annual board of directors meeting of the Western BCA Pool Players Association was held June 11 at the Cadillac Island Casino, Longview, Washington. The purpose of the annual meeting is to wrap up the year just ended, elect officers for the coming year and generally evaluate the association and the direction it is heading. There were 25 league operators and representatives present from eight leagues throughout Washington and Oregon. After reports from officers and committee chairmen, election of officers took place. Bill Henderson is our new president. Bill, league operator for the Juan de Fuca Pool League in Port Angeles, Washington, has been active in billiards as a player, local league official, tournament director and Western BCA board member for many years. He has served on several committees and taken an active role at our regional tournaments. In his new position he will continue to lead the Western BCA forward and strive to make our regional tournaments the best they can be. Sam Rabito was re-elected vice president in a close race with Andrew Monstis. Sam has been serving as interim president for the past 10 months but feeling he could better serve the association as vice president, sought and won back his previous position. Sam has worked very hard this past year and will continue to assist the president and pursue the goals of the association. Attention was then turned to the upcoming year. The ninth annual regional 9-ball tournament is just a few months away and work on making it a premier event is well underway. This tournament will be held in Lincoln City, Oregon at Chinook Winds Casino Resort from Oct. 25-29. High Country Promotions will again provide tables and Gary Benson will serve as tournament director. Tournament format will the same as past 9-ball tournaments except that the men’s Open will be split into Open-A and Open-B subdivisions. Newly elected president Bill Henderson made a brief statement to members of the board, thanking them for past participation and encouraging future attendance at board meetings. There is still much work to be done and future regional tournaments to promote and put on. The board and leadership of the Western BCA are looking forward to and working towards the continued growth of our association and regional tournaments.

Mike Massey will Masse’ & Mesmerize at Bellevue’s Hottest Spot for Nightlife Seattle - June 27, 2006 - ”He can make a cue ball behave in ways sure to blush the faces of mere Mike Massey bar players. On August 23, Mike Massey will visit Bellevue’s The Parlor Billiards & Spirits to perform a billiards trick shot expo and play challenge matches with Parlor visitors. Massey will perform at The Parlor that evening from 7 to 11 p.m. The upscale Parlor Billiards & Spirits opened in December and is located on the third floor of Lincoln Square. Massey visited during The Parlor’s opening and upon leaving said, “I’ve played in 57 countries and this is the nicest pool hall I’ve seen in the world.” Massey has performed billiards exhibitions in over 30 countries and has taught billiards to celebrities such as Johnny Cash, Billy Bob Thornton, and Sugar Ray Leonard. Mike Massey is widely considered the greatest trick shot artist in the world and was voted the Best in the History of the Game by Billiards Digest magazine. The Parlor is the Northwest’s premier, full-service upscale billiards hall and the $4.2 million brainchild of former dentist Steven Olson. It features 43 pool tables, two bars, 10 plasma screen televisions, and two private suites. The Parlor offers free parking and does not admit minors.

Instructor/Coach Program from: John Lewis, Executive Director

The American CueSports Alliance (ACS) is proud to introduce a new Instructor/Coach Certification Program. Recognizing that the sport is growing at record pace worldwide and that there continues to be a need for qualified, personable billiard teaching professionals, some of the top billiard instructors in North America such as Joseph Mejia, Jerry Briesath, Tom Rossman, Tom Simpson, Roy Yamane and others guided the ACS in establishing a program that would recognize and embrace individuals of all skill levels who desire to impart their knowledge to others. Recently Mejia convened a group of nationally-renowned instructors near San Francisco, California, with Level 4 Instructor/coach Roy Yamane, Bart Mahoney, and Ron Dobosenski at the direction of the ACS for the purpose of gaining instruction on the new Billiard PAT Testing System - devised in Europe, recognized by the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) as a standardized evaluation system for students and featured prominently in the ACS program for those desiring to use it. Complete information about the ACS Instructor/Coach program, an application into the program and information on the PAT Testing System is available on the ACS website at www.americancuesports.org.

ACS Nationals

(continued from page 14)

Locals representing the Las Vegas Cue Club garnered a 1st (Katy Moore), three 2nds (Trick Sixty, Julie Nogiec/Trick Sixty in scotch doubles and the team “Jerry’s”) and two 3rds (Nogiec again and the team “Las Vegas Cue Club”); while the Southern Amusement League from Virginia laid claimed to a 1st in Men’s Open 8-Ball Singles (Jack Davis), Men’s Senior 8-Ball Singles (Bill Mason) and a 2nd in Women’s Open 8-Ball Singles (Toni Barnes). The “Can’t Win” team from Illinois had to delete some Master players from its roster to qualify for the Open Team division, but reloaded with some strong Open players from its same league to capture the Men’s/Mixed Open Team crown. Canada, represented by the many leagues that sanction with the Canadian Cue Sport Association (CCS), took its usual quota of titles. Lesser-known players on the national level from both ends of the age spectrum – Minnesota’s Chad Plumley in the 18 & Under Junior Boys and Nevada’s Jonathan Hahn in the Super Seniors – made their marks for the first time, while Nick Tafoya’s dominance in the 14 & Under Boys division further brightened his star on the national horizon. The ACS Referee program continued to expand, as a full class of new ACS national referees graduated during the week. The Can-Am Snooker Challenge featured a talented Team Canada (John White, Jeff Kennedy, Odie Willet and Terry Davidson) recovering from a large deficit to beat Team USA’s finest snooker players (current national champion George Lai, Romil Final Results: Men’s 9-Ball Singles 1 st $1,500 Steven Lenz (Orange, TX) 2 nd $1,100 Ricardo Pena (Davenport, IA) 3rd $800 Danny Allen (Lake Havasu, AZ) $620 Scott Kitto (Cedar Rapids, IA) 4 th 7-8th $400 Tim Robertson (Kelso, WA) 13-16 $200 Henry Girardi (Las Vegas, NV) 25-32 $100 Jonathan Hahn (Gardnerville, NV) Women’s 9-Ball Singles 1st $1,000 Katy Moore (Las Vegas, NV) 2 nd $750 Vickie Martin (Kansas City, MO) 3rd $530 June Maiers (Chaska, MN) $530 Janet Ritcey (Halifax, NS) 4 th 5-6th $250 Julie Nogiec (Las Vegas, NV) Men’s Master 8-Ball Singles 1 st $2,000 Josh Johnson (Bettendorf, IA) 2nd $1,500 Trick Sixty (Las Vegas, NV) 3rd $1,000 Larry Wilson (Victoria, BC) 4 th $700 Jeremy Smith (Calgary, AB) Men’s Master 8-Ball Singles Sports Div. 1st $300 Ron Allen (Las Vegas, NV) 2 nd $165 Charlie Robertson (New Westmin., BC) Women’s Master 8-Ball Singles 1 st $2,000 Bonnie Plowman (Longmont, CO) $1,400 Andrea Wilson (Victoria, BC) 2 nd 3rd $900 Julie Nogiec (Las Vegas, NV) 4 th $600 Jessica Frideres (Fort Dodge, IA) Women’s Master 8-Ball Singles Sports Div. 1 st $300 Dee McGrath (Washington, IL) 2 nd $135 Samantha Diepp (Aurora, CO) Men’s Open 8-Ball Singles 1 st $2,500 Jack Davis (Virginia Beach, VA) 2 nd $2,000 Dustin Gunia (Omaha, NE) $1,500 Rodney Flenoi (East Moline, IL) 3rd 4 th $1,000 Shane Johnson (Rock Island, IL) 13-16 $325 Ken Welch (Eugene, OR) Men’s Open 8-Ball Singles Sports Div. 1 st $445 Michael Leigh (Innisfil, ON) $200 Gale Gladden (Decatur, TX) 2 nd 3-4th $100 Bill McPherson (Sydney River, NS) Frank Baker ((Davenport, IA) 5-8th $50 Greg Kuhl (Las Vegas, NV) Women’s Open 8-Ball Singles 1 st $2,000 Janet Ritcey (Halifax, NS) 2nd $1,250 Toni Barnes (Virginia Beach, VA) 3rd $865 Wendy Ady (Inver Grove Heights, MN) 4 th $550 Cheryl Morrell (Edelstein, IL) 5-6th $350 Shawn Modelo (Antioch, CA) 13-16 $125 Katy Moore (Las Vegas, NV) Women’s Open 8-Ball Singles Sports Div. 1 st $400 Lorraine Green (Oshweken, ON) 2 nd $200 Amy Taguchi (Lansing, IL) 3-4th $100 Patricia Hajny (Milan, IL) Tammie Cox (Peoria, IL) 5-8th $50 Brenda Cannon (Oregon City, OR) Men’s Standard 8-Ball Singles 1 st $2,000 Mike Calla (Maple Ridge, BC) 2 nd $1,300 Mark Downey (Calgary, AB) 3rd $830 Marty Jones (Plano, TX) $650 Juan Parra Jr. (Dallas, TX) 4 th 17-24 $150 Tony Metcalf (Tualatin, OR)

On adjoining tables could be found ACS Level 4 instructor/coaches Joseph Mejia and Roy Yamane analyzing the pool mechanics of many a player, while Mexico’s Roberto Rojas wowed the crowds with cue ball actions that defied belief on the carom table. Appreciation is due to the Embassy Club in San Gabriel, California, Strachan Snooker cloth, Stan James Online Bookmakers and Elitte Professional tables for sponsorship in making these amazing events possible all under one roof. Also special thanks to the United States Snooker Association, the Canadian Billiard & Snooker Association – two affiliate members to the ACS – and the ACS for providing the players, volunteers and referees for these events. In 2007 the ACS has made plans to expand the Nationals even further by combining its National 8Ball Championships and National 9-Ball Championships at the same venue – the Riviera in Las Vegas – June 7-16! Again emphasizing “something for everybody,” team and singles 9-ball will be scheduled for June 7-10 and team and singles 8-ball will be scheduled for June 11-16! The ACS is a nonprofit, national organization dedicated to heightening the interest and awareness of cue sports through the support and sanctioning of organized competition throughout the United States and North America.

APA ON CNN from: Jason Bowman

APA League Operator to Appear on CNN LAKE SAINT LOUIS, MO (June 15, 2006) APA League Operator Tom Gates of Englewood, N.J., will appear in the CNN segment ‘Life After Work’ which features individuals who do something out of the ordinary in their retirement. In late May, the CNN film crew went to Castle Billiards, in East Rutherford, N.J., to interview Tom and see the local league in action. This short segment is only a few minutes long but will appear during five different CNN shows, over four days, reaching a total of around 2.5 million viewers. The piece is scheduled to run during the following shows: Paula Zahn Now (8pm-9pm EDT) - July 6th American Morning (8am-9am EDT) - July 7th Live From (3pm-4pm EDT) - July 7th In the Money (1pm-2pm EDT) - July 8th In the Money (3pm-4pm EDT) - July 9th The APA is generally recognized as the Governing Body of Amateur Pool, having established the official rules, championships, formats and handicap systems for the sport of amateur billiards.

Foundation supports new undergrads with startup funds Colorado Springs, Colorado: The Billiard Education Foundation [BEF] has announced the names of eight high school seniors who will receive academic scholarship funds to assist with expenses in their early undergraduate careers. Over 130 hopefuls made initial bids for consideration in March, and the BEF Trustees concluded the rigorous review on June 1 by selecting the following winners. BEF Excellence in Education winner: Kyle Smith, Lafayette, Colo. BCA Scholarship (area) winners: Gregory Gaskin, South Lake Tahoe, Calif. Dorothy Mix, Camino, Calif. The single Excellence in Education recipient earns a $5,000 award, issued over a two-year term, and seven $1,000 BCA scholarships are awarded to individuals each year.

Martha 7-4 and Kim Sijer 7-5 to reach her first finals. I would like to say Kim had a case of nerves or was exhausted from a long Sunday road, but I have no idea , as Aileen didn’t let her shoot till it was 5-0, and even then, it was just kicks, till it was 7-0. With a final score of 9-0, it was Aileen’s incredible shooting that never let Kim to the table. We are all hoping for a rematch soon. Congratulations to all the Sunday players as it was a very difficult Saturday road just to get there. Ford and I would like to thank all the players, spectators and Jillian’s staff for the support and smiles.

Inducted to the BCA Hall of Fame in 1980 at 36, Mr. Mizerak had been the first to hold the distinction of being the youngest player to receive that honor. He began playing at the age of four while standing on a milk box in his father’s pool hall in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and turned pro at the age of thirteen. Over the course of his career, he was named the World Pocket Billiard Champion three years in a row, was a 4x champion of the U.S. Open (1970, 1971, 1972, 1973), and also

But he may have become bestknown for making a difficult trick shot in a commercial for Miller Lite. It took Steve 101 tries to successfully make the shot when he said, “you really work up a thirst even when you’re just showing off”. He acted in the 1986 film “The Color of Money,” opposite Paul Newman. In his lifetime, Mr. Mizerak was an icon in the sport, as an outstanding pool player, earned a degree in teaching and taught for 13 years, manufacturer and celebrity. In the 1990’s and 2000’s he owned and operated pool halls in South Florida and founded the Senior Tour in 1996. He is survived by his wife Karen, two sons and a stepson. We will all miss him.
