T-10 Results

Posted in Uncategorized on February 8, 2011 by poolnight

Here’s the results from last Sunday. The PotShot played a more important role in this tournament than in the past. Terry, to his credit, went to the website, read the rules, and went out and practiced the shot. He had two chances for wins on the tiebreaker and he drained both PotShots. Both shots were by cut shot. Some players like to bank it, and we’ve had players win the potShot Round with the bank as well. I personally prefer the cut. If you nail it just right, with the right speed, the cue ball comes around two rails and goes right back to the spot where it started.

PotShot at The Billiards Cafe

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2011 by poolnight

It was another close and exciting tournament last Sunday. Tim and Rick both had a good first round at table one, while Dan and Terry came out on top at table two.

In second round action, Rick and Terry duked it out, with Rick scoring a double header win propelling him into the final table with $6,700. Terry took a double header to end the round with a beautiful PotShot giving him $7,500, a seat at the final table, and the tournament lead.

Meanwhile, Carol punched her ticket with three second round wins; going from $2,800 to $6,000. Dick took a game in each of the first two rounds, to make the final table with $4,100. The final spot went to Tim with $3,400, squeezing out Mike who finished his night early with $3,300.

In a pressure packed final table Dick won game one, followed by a no winner. Then Carol struck again grabbing game three on the nine for the double header win. Dick came right back to grab game four, and game five went all the way ending when Tim went off on the Ten.

Terry nailed another PotShot to win game five for a second place finish. Despite winning two games in the final round Dick finished third. Rick slid to fourth, with Tim fifth. Carol’s double header proved to be enough to give her the first place finish. The hot shooters were out at the final table so congratulations to Carol on a fine performance.
