Is this Creepy? I am asking you.----You know by now about the pro one pocket tournament we're having on the 21st.---getting added money is always hard without big sports sponsors.---So I found a site where you can accept donations for your event,--whatever it is. Now I know some pro pool players aren't exactly role models and I'm not either so lets not go there. I am talking about the best players in this country and some ---maybe the world having to ..#1.put up there own money and #2..play for such small amounts in prize money. ..They have kids and families and rent and mortgages.....How are you going to take a flight , stay in a hotel, eat meals put up your enty fee and then if you play good get 2nd and win $8000.--there aint much profit there.--So anyway we are trying to add more money....propoolevent.myevent.com...is the site . Every dime goes to the players added into there prize money....We have 4000 added right now.---Joe Long added $1000.. Laser Amusement added $1000 and I am adding $2000.---Everybody at the pool hall is laughing ...they say I am crazy. That 's not a new sentiment.-------------oh and I just added up my tab sheets and loans out...Totals about $37,400.---anybody contributing that owes can get 3x on the money AND...I will put it in the added money

Well, it's nice to have "Buff" (Buffalo's owner) post on the forum! I believe this is his first post ever.

What will be the mechanics of the tournaments? In other words, will "X" tables be dedicated to the 1P event (e.g. the four at the front), and the others for the 9-ball? Or will the 1P be played in the front room while the 9-ball is played in the back? Will the hours of play be the same, or at different times? I realize that the amateur event will have to be restricted to Sat. and Sun.

The reason I'm asking is to help make my decision as to when to come over.

Cheers~
Doc

Default tentative schedule of events

Nine ball is played on the 7 footers, Doc. They are going to use 8 nine footers for the first round, then go down to six/four/two thereafter. Calcutta and One pocket starts on Thursday at 6 pm (first round only) and the Nine ball starts on Saturday at noon. One pocket will probably start back at noon on Friday. Races to 5, allowing about 5 hours for a match.

Joe, if there will be 1P play on the weekend, what time do you suppose it would start?

I haven't been over there in a coupla years. Did he add a third room for bar boxes? At the time there were only a few located up by the bar.

Thanks~
Doc

I would expect play to begin at noon. The bar boxes are in the back room. Most of the one pocket will be held on the front four tables. I think the first round, they'll use two of the back tables. Buffalo is going to configure it to allow some seating. The Calcutta for the One Pocket starts on Thursday at 6 pm. The Nine ball calcutta will start at noon on Saturday. The nine ball is open to all players, including those knocked out of the one pocket by Saturday.

Also, Mika Immonen and John Schmidt will play a race to 300 straight pool on Monday evening for $2,000 minimum.

So, we'll have 16 one pocket greats, an open bar table nine ball event and a straight pool challenge match. Something for everyone. And the calcuttas should be nasty. Lafayette hit $92,000 in their total prize fund this weekend. There is a lot of money to be made in Louisiana if you shoot straight.

Sounds lovely, Joe! And I'm happy to hear that Buff will allow for some spectator seating, since the room is normally a little close and crowded.

Schmidt vs. Immonen. I'd love to hear how that was set up.

Let us know all the gunners when the field has filled.

Great field! Mostly every American top player except Jason Brown, SVB and B. Pettipiece! I guess Jamie Farrell will try to win the qualifier.
