Yes, I was the idiot who bid 10K on Alex. Sometimes, you get what you pay for.

The bracket was extremely top heavy, with Tony, Alex, Frost, Deuel, Bustamante and Efren all in the top bracket. This led to some early knockouts and allowed some of the mid-level talent to rise.

Gomez got an education from Jay Bird on Wednesday night, losing two sets for about $14,000. But there is no doubt that Gomez is coming hard. This is the second bubble for Gomez in his first two efforts at Buffalos after a top 5 run at the Derby. He does everything right: He practices, he doesn't drink or do drugs, runs out like water and gets his sleep. Keep an eye on him. He won the nine ball for the third tournament in a row. He is a serious talent and has a girlfriend who acts as his secretary and makes sure he does everything the right way.

Corey Deuel continued his stellar play, coming second at the Derby, at Scotty Townsend and now at Buffalo's, losing only to Busty and Alex twice. He is a value bet in any calcutta and a threat to come in the money every tournament. I did notice that JJ's patience forced a lot of reckless play from Deuel, and that seems to be the way to beat him. If Jones could execute his offense like he usually does, he would have beaten Corey but we all saw his struggles on the monster that is the TV table.

What can be said about Alex? He is without peer right now and they are playing for second in 2019. Shows up early, practices, eats right, exercises and gets the money. Sounds like a good plan, right?'

Largest Calcutta ever for the One Pocket and the Nine ball. Just keeps getting better. Hope you all enjoyed it. We always have fun and I loved seeing all the onepocket.org members soaking in the atmosphere. Hope to see more of you next year. If Buffalo ever goes to non smoking, I think it would be a unanimous vote for our member tournament. Buff is talking about expanding 10,000 more feet. If he does, he will make a tournament room and maybe I can twist his arm and make that area non-smoking.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the tournament,

Joe Long
I hope to get there one day too Joe, you make it sound pretty sweet (even with the smoking hehe)

Thanks for your report and insight!

At the beginning of the finals I saw Deuel and Alex having some small discussion during the first game, which based on what was happening on the table, I think was a gentleman's agreement to not climb on the table, despite it being "legal" in the room.

Also, during the Chip/J Hall match Richie Richeson sat in the booth with Larry Schwartz for a bit. Larry asked him what his thoughts were on climbing on the table. Richie said he didn't like it, especially against lesser players, that you might lock them up real good and if they couldn't shoot well with the bridge or opposite handed they just climb up on the table and escape. Essentially taking away needing those other skill sets. I'm neither for or against it, though its often amusing to watch, but I thought that take was interesting.

Lil John defeats Tyler Styer one pocket for 4.5K

Omar Al Shaheen defeats Lil John 10-8 for 5K
Josh Roberts playing Jamie Farrell 10-7
Russian Kenny defeats Tiger for 10K
Lil John is having a good week. He also earlier beat the little Robo feller too. Is he in stroke, or is he just matching up well?

I think the Russian beat little John two nights ago for either 10 or 20k getting a ball playing run out 9 ball, but John obviously got it back and then some.

Not streamed. I believe Scott was against it and he was able to select the table they play on.

Great idea. A non smoking tournament area in the new area would really draw a big crowd

I agree, even smokers now a days, don't like Smokey rooms. Chris's in Chicago a good example. I know when I was a kid in the 50's at the movie theater in our town, there was a separate smoking room;.
