Good stream quality -- they are live now. Two players I don't know anything about "Sergio" and Will Freeman?

Steve, Sergio is one of the top Chicago One Pocket players along with Ike and Chris Gentile - the three of them play each other on a regular basis here - Sergio placed high in tough company at the 2007 U.S. Open One Pocket Championship when it was held in Louisville that year >>>

Thanks Ghost. He looked pretty smooth -- at least that is the word that comes to my mind watching him.

Anyone have final results?

The brackets are online here, but not final results when I last looked:

Many thanks to Red Shoes and Mi_billiards for the tournament and the live stream!!

I wish they did allow that. I would have loved to see the comments coming in. Next time I do anything I will bring a laptop with me. Archie Karas (and you) wanted to gab with me and I would have gotten a kick out of it myself, but it was not to be.

Yes, I had to be content with telling the RBLunatic the correct shot...I type so slow, by the time I make my shot selection, they're racking for the next game...(RBL never notices the difference)...:rolleyes:

PS.. I thought the Greek was going to bust a gut..He actually threatened the streamer if he didn't let you talk to him RIGHT NOW !!!

The streamer was updating me periodically with some of Archie's comments. I certainly wasnt offended. Anybody who has blown that much money to me is allowed to say anything that he wants. My son was sweating it on the internet, he thought Archie was being "affectionate." The streamers didnt, and they cut him off from chatting any further.

Beard

I just wonder if that was really him. I would have had to read his chat to be sure. I still dont know who won. My guy Jet played pretty good considering. He had to have a problem with stamina and energy. I seen that he couldnt put out every shot. Radiation, chemo, operation. It aint that easy a recovery.

I wondered that too, somebody must have been showing him how to get on the chat, and typing for him (it sure wasn't Artie)..:D

PS..Sergio beat Will Freeman for 1st place

Freddy was re to Archie Karas, a Greek high extra high roller who gambles at many games including pool. He is known for turning a tiny bit of money into $40 million playing all the hold em players who would sit, and after he went through them he turned to dice. Freddy once posed as an eccentric billionaire industrialist who likes pool and won a couple hundred thousand off the fellow but was owed like a million more which he could not collect after Freddys set up guys and partners blew the deal and failed to play their roles correctly. He should have used Me and Red Card. You can read about this incident on Freddys fantastic web site..............

Thanks Jimmy, I am very familiar with the Archie Karas story. Fred and I were just discussing the legitimacy of the guy on the chat yesterday at Red Shoes... Archie is not known for haunting internet chat streams. Lot of guys like to jump in a chatroom and play a role like that.

I remember that one. He made a lot of long straight backs, with speed.

This one illustrated spun the cb real sweet as well.

Thanks for a great stream.

As a newcomer, it was a real pleasure to watch such high caliber 1P.

ps: I didn't get to see Bobby Hunter play on the 'TV' table, but saw him on adjacent table. Glad to see him out playing again-hoping the eye issue has been taken care of.

With locals named 'Watusi', that's got to be a great room atmosphere!

And Fred-thanks too for your educational and entertaining commentary.

Yeah Freddy, bring it next time. We have a good time in the chat on most nights. When things get slow SJD & I tear into each other and get it goin' again:p .

You are the best pool commentator out there and the live broadcast just proved that out.

P.S. I hope your ass feels better:eek: .

Thats not nice to say to Fred, I certainly put him above Danny D...and just below Joey A, and Big Truck... Billy I. is the Howard Cossell of pool commentating..(is that good or bad)...:D :D :D

PS..But I do enjoy him bringing the con, scam, shark and cheat, into any given situation..we can all learn from him...:p

There is a Greek kid named Steve here at Red Shoes that is Archie's cousin. He said Archie called him and said he had went on the chat line and was fooling around on it. Steve was at a wedding so he didnt attend the tourn.

One more kudo to my guy, Jet for his 3rd place finish. I am looking forward to working with him on his onepocket game to get him ready for DCC. We never did much with onepocket, we stayed in his best area banks. He is very lacking in kiss shots, caroms, and ball running principles, all of which hindered him at the tourn. We will try and get that fixed as his health improves.

Your edit cheat on RBL's quote was duly noted.
