I think this a good time of year for this -- a real nice offset from DCC both in the dates, and in the location. I hope to go...

It is planned for the weekend prior to the US Open 10 tournament which may have a limited field of 96 players.

I might have to meander on down to Vegas for a long weekend... I konw some of those 10 ball players think they can play One Pocket...

I will be doing my best to be there and hope to meet up with some of you guys for a beer or 10. Good to hear that Mark is putting this on, heard about it around a week ago and I wanted to make it public so bad but figured Mark was better to do the honors. I do hope the event is live streamed by TAR for those of you who cannot make it to LV. :)

Props to Tim White...he was the one who originally cared enough, and revived the tournament at his pool room in Kalamazoo about 3 or 4 years ago...due to unfortunate events he had to close his room, or he probably would have kept having the tournament.

PS, The Ghost played in it, and came in in third place :eek: losing to Richie Richeson hill-hill in the hot seat match - Richie went on to win the tournament.

No way...problem is, for the big $$$ that Papie and I are playing for, I won't be able to make a ball - I'm a $30-$50 a game player...:o...smart money will bet against me, playing Papie...;)

- Ghosty

PS, I hope Bernie doesn't see this post - it'll make him real nervous...:D

This is great news. I was just wondering the other day if the U.S. Open 1P would ever be held again.

Since there seems to be a surge of interest in 1P of late, I'm sure he'll fill up. I'd like to play it myself. The problem is, if he limits it to only 32 or 48 players, the field will be real deep with knuckle-dragging sharp shooters.:eek: I played the one in 2006 at the Executive West, where I think there were 80-100 players. I didn't play the Qlympics the next year. It was a small field. Galveston had about 80 players.

He may be limiting the field because he doesn't want to take more than a dozen or so tables out to Vegas. The races used to be to 5, so each match can occupy a table for awhile.

Anyway, I'm sure there will be lots more discussion about the event!
