            I got word from Diane at The Pool Room 2 that the One Pocket is nearly down to the final 4 on the winner's side:
            Larry Nevel
            Jerry Slivka
            Shawn Putnam
            and the winner of the ongoing Brian Butler/Danny Harriman match

            Still alive with one loss at this time includes:
            Cliff Joyner
            Chris Bartram playing Little John Macias
            John Pinegar
            Horace 'Groundhog' Godwin

            They have a 10-ball ring game kicking off tonight, they had four names so far, looking for a total of six:
            Cliff Joyner
            Chris Bartram
            Mark Gregory
            Shannon Daulton

            Reports are Tony Watson has rolled into town, too. Sounds like a great time; wish I was there!!

              The Southern Classic

              Hi Folks,

              We Are So Busy Trying To Run A Smooth Tournament; Therefore, Our Time Is Very Limited.

              Here It Goes: Brian Butler And Danny Harriman's Match Took 4 Hours To Complete. It Was A Battle Of Great Defense, Butler Came Through After Harriman's Missed A Makable Shot. Butler Won 3-2

              Larry Nevel Bested Shannon Daulton 3-2 With 3 Wins In A Row.

              Cliff Joyner Was Sent To The Left Side Of The Board By Jerry Slivka 3-1.

              More To Come In A Little While.

                  Action, Action, Action...

                  When I left around 3am this morning, Tony Watson was matched up with John Hennessey on our one triple-shimmed Diamond table. It made me sick the way those two made it look so easy to play on. Truly, you'd have thought they were playing a bar table at times and believe me, this is one tough table. Mark and Tina Gregory installed all of our tables, so you know they're done right cause they are THE BEST AROUND; even Buddy Hall said he won't use anyone else for his!
                  I don't know the outcome of the match, but will keep you all posted.

                      I hear Larry Nevel defeated Shawn Putnam in the extended race to 5 finals for the One Pocket crown.

                      They also have something like 55 players in the 8-ball event which just got under way. Sounds like a real nice turnout for both events so far, with 9-ball still to follow.
