I will certainly play and I am sure we will have all the big guns up here again, John B, Greg Sullivan, Truman, Jeff Carter, Piggy, Sergio, Ike, and an assortment of boys from Milwaukee, Detroit. Ky and downstate Illinois. Probably another full field of 32.

I didn't know we had any bankers here in Detroit. Of whom do you speak Mr. Freddy? R.R. is the only one I can think of.

Being as you are now up against 'lesser' competition than Tunica...and a LOT shorter field...Is there a wager available, as to how you will finish ?..I may be interested..:confused:...I really want to see your perfect 'mistake free' bank game..:D

PS..If you are feeling a widdle out of sorts, (as you said you were last Sunday, poor baby) or if um's widdle eyes are feeling bad...Should you give me a reasonable bet (against ANY worthy opponent)..I MAY allow you to you call off any wagers, mid-stream......:rolleyes: :eek: :D

PS..Thats assuming this tournament is LIVE STREAMED...And no 'blzness' please...:p :p :p

I'm curious as to how many games they will be racing to: 1, 2, 3?

Thanks, and hope y'all have a full field! ~Doc

Please dont force me to access my fading memory. Suffice to say there were a coupla Detroiters here last time. I even played against one -- a black player. I will pay more attn this time and try and remember names. They werent big names to start with, at least any that I had heard of.

Is this a race to 23?
That is Chicago style bank pool, race to 23. 23 out of 45 (3 full racks). That format was invented by Joe Burns at Dayton, Oh in the early 70s. That is the format used at those big bank tourns in Cincinnati also. IMO it is a true test of a banker.

It is a race to 23 "BALLS".....Flip for break (winners choice), play the WHOLE 1st rack out, play WHOLE (if ness.) 2nd rack out....then play the WHOLE (if ness.) 3rd rack out. IF THE PLAYERS GET TO THE "FORTH" (4TH) RACK, THEY HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. One of them have to have 23 credited balls by the conclusion of the 3rd rack.

Bump for the tournament this Saturday.

All the tables have been recovered. Excellent condition.

I would suspect that there will be some live streaming right here:

Have any out-of-towners said they are coming? Who?
Truman will in all probability come up with Greg Sullivan. Jim Griffith (Ky)will probably play. Brumback has played in the last couple. Milwaukee, Downstate, Detroit and Iowa are usually well represented.
