Bogies management set the time for the players meeting at 6:30 Thursday evening, the 14th of April at Bogies Billiards & Sports Bar. You need not be present for this meeting or the Calcutta, but you will be auctioned off in the Calcutta even if you are not in attendance. Chances are you will be offered a piece of yourself by the person who bought you.

The players auction ( Calcutta ) will follow immediately after the players meeting. Around 7:00 ish. When a player is sold at auction he will draw his # for the bracket and will know what time his match will be scheduled for on Friday.

The first round will start at noon on Friday and we should be able to start second round play somewhere around 3:00 PM.

Details on matches beyond the first two rounds will be decided by the tournament director Bill Fuller.

Commentary

Commentary

I believe he is bringing Jeremy Jones along for commentary, and he also mentioned bringing Red Walling, the owner of Red's in Houston, where we got our first look at Efren many years ago.

In any case, this will be bigger and better than the last tournament in October, and that was a blast. Houston is a great pool town and Bogies a wonderful host, with great players and legendary cue makers. There is a small raised seating area above the lone Diamond table and I remember looking up and seeing Richard Black, Bill Schick and Leonard Bludworth sitting up there taking it all in and enjoying themselves.

Keith Thompson was showing us the Joss West Cue he received after he won the Johnson City All Around when he was 19 years old. He is not old enough to play in the tournament, but is was a pleasure to meet and talk with him.

There will be some great one pocket and pool stories with this group, and I am bringing copies of the flyer designed by RedCard (Chuck S) with the players pictures on it (Attached) for all the players in the tournament who want one.
