And, thank you Jeff for all your work and foresight to help the event happen. It sure looked like everyone enjoyed themselves.Well as anyone can plainly see, Onepocket.org is a force to be reckoned with. If I'm not mistaken, the top six finishers in this tournament are are all members in good standing at Onepocket.org!! Great tournament guys, you all played some awesome one pocket.
Congratulations Dr.Bill, you still have that killer instinct! After you lost the hot seat match to Jerry Matchin leading him 3/0, I thought you were a goner, you looked very tired. But it actually lit a fire under your ass and you came out of the funk you were in and played like a champion. You displayed the courage and stamina it takes to win in the face of great adversity. You mustered up the strength from deep within and played like a Hall of Famer. Great tournament Mr. Incardona, the reigning Senior Classic Champion!
Jerry Matchin, you are one tough S.O.B. You are a great player, it was a pleasure watching you play the game! The cats outta the bag now buddy, everybody knows how good you play the game!! Congratulations on having a great tournament.
Thanks to David Richardson ( owner Bogies ) for being such a gracious host throughout the tournament and also to John Rizzo for seeing to it that we were able to compete in a rap free music environment, among the 100's of other little things they both attended to for us. Thank you fellas, you are both great!
A special thanks to David Kurjan ( Disco Dave ) for his tireless work on site, providing updates and info during the entire tournament. Good job Dave, Thanks
Ray Hansen and poolactiontv were once again there to provide excellent coverage with expert commentary from Jeremy Jones, Dr.Bill, Joey A., LS John, and several other guests. It was a pleasure to listen to them all, thanks guys.
Mary Kennison was with us the whole way, making her rounds as she always does, picking up everybody's spirits with her outgoing personality and road stories from the past, all done while taking hundreds of pics of the players and fans. She is such a credit to the game of pool, and one hell of a good player to boot. Thank you Mary, you're such a good person.
To all the players;
They came from all over the country to play in the Inaugural Senior One Pocket Classic. They were gentlemen all, they played the game as best they could, and uttered not a discouraging word upon defeat. They were strangers and friends, they were rivals and competitors, but most of all they were members of the game, the game they love. It was a pleasure to stand among you. Looking forward to when next we meet.
Congrats to Dr. Bill and all the participants. It was really fun to watch.
