Well I'm getting ready to leave to play my match. I have two goals for myself for today. One is to not embarrass myself and the other is to win this thing.
If I succeed with the first goal then I have a good chance at the other. Of course a good roll here and there could help.

Either way I want to thank Daniel Busch with POV pool and James Boch, his wife, and all the others involved for putting this together. I'm honored to be one of the invited players. I hope the show will be enjoyable to all the viewers.

Default Big foot takes over one pocket!!!

Have you ever played on a ten foot table? ok, maybe you have...but have you played one pocket on a ten foot table? Chances are you haven't tried it and neither have we, but these four guys are going to take on James Boch's challenge. Wayne Pullen, "The Barber" Frank Almanza, "Hendy" John R Henderson and Phil Misson are matching up in this four man one pocket tournament on the BIG FOOT 10' table at the Bochs' house.

POV Pool will be bringing you the live coverage Friday, March 10th and 11th at NOON/pst.

I tried to watch some of the first match, but immediately fell asleep. When I woke up someone was just hitting balls. The rails did seen a tad soft, but maybe it's an illusion because the ball is traveling two extra feet on the straightbacks...

i watched it off an on all afternoon/evening. frank played very well 1st match. 2nd match - john and wayne both caught a case of the yips.....we all know both these guys can play some.....just goes to show its a whole different world when you're actually in the grease.....(there were a couple very salty shots from both). 3rd match - don't know phil from adam, but good to see him get in stroke and make a couple real nice runs. from what i saw, looked like wayne had whitey on a string and protected his position masterfully at times.

looking forward to catching some more tomorrow.



(and what a nice home room.....)

I watched part of Frank's match and it was 1-0 Frank, I went away for just a short time and when I came back i guess it was over because Wayne and John were getting ready to play.

Watched a lot of that match and yes, they may have missed some shots but I liked that final game they played hill/hill. Good back and forth and came down to where either guy could have won.

Table definitely seems slow and rails maybe not as live but its cool to see the game played on a 10 foot, changes the game quite a bit. You could for sure go for your hole a little more and leave the CB long up table near the rail and gl on your opponent making that shot...he would have to get out his binoculars.

Hopefully will get to catch some more this weekend, good luck today guys!

Great home room and great stream, thanks again Daniel!

(I have not been able to hear any of the commentary as I have it muted so it doesn't disturb my better half)

Enjoyable play from everyone. It's been a long time since I've played on a 10-footer, and of course the increased table dimension does make it seem slower; but the speed of the table they're using seems to me about the speed which most tables used to be-- certainly back in the '50s-'70s. In general the tables were slower than those of today. It took a good stroke to move the balls around the table for longer distances. The slightly slower speeds seemed beneficial for 9 ball, because the shooter could let out his stroke a little. But it makes it a little more challenging for 1P.
