The day Nick came in to play Big Phil. A couple tables down, Santos Sambajon was playing another one of our regs. Mag the Chiropractor who plays a pretty good game of Pocket Apiece. All these ducking regs playing Champions. Its unbelievable.Seemed to be laying down some kind of wedge:
He and Rodney Morris (Who does live in CA) have been playing in most or all of the Mezz West Ten Ball tournaments here. They have one every two weeks and I believe there were 16 scheduled for this year.Not up on current events but can somebody tell me what Mika is doing in there. I mean does he live in the area now, or just passin through? Interesting I would have never guessed seeing him in there playing one hole in a million years.
Mika and Rodney both wear Mooses shoes to play pool in. Mika is a rep for the company and quite a few of the pro players wear them. You can get more info on their Facebook page or from Mika. Google Mooses Pool Shoes.Mika's been in and out of LA where he is staying in a nice little home owned by a good friend.
What I think is happening is that more Euro's are trying to learn the one pocket ins and outs. They realize that the all around at the Derby provides them with a chance to make them some good money so they are drawn to it.
And they realize the quality of the game and don't want to be behind the times.
BTW the first pic of Nick and Big Phil. Phil is playing the Kentucky Colonel even steven. Wayne is playing Mika even. So don't let anyone tell you there aint no game here.
