Sorry

No pics today, because I’m missing some sleep. (Fire alarm in the morning and a long Fatboy 10 Ball Challenge)

But tomorrow I will put everything online (Thorsten, Jeanette, Ralf, Karen Corr, 9 Ball Bank Final and so on)
Also I recorded a complete match from Jeanette Lee.

Action Action Action

What happened today ?

I saw a 9 Ball Bank match between Homann and Bustamante.
(Thorsten won, not to bad for a German guy *ggggg*)
I have also seen a lot of One Pocket and other Bank Pool matches .

Played some games @ AZ room and met a lot of AZ members.

 

This evening I watched first the Fatball Challenge (Ralf won again 😉 )
and after that I was going to see te TAR Efren Reyes vs Shane Van Boening match.

As you can imagine, this was an exciting game. (It was a hell of a game)
Both guys played awesome, but because of the time (it was about 4:00 am) 
and the mental pressure, both guys missed one or two balls.
Finally Shane was doing his last rack….everything was looking fine….
everybody was feeling the pressure…. about 4 balls remaining.
And just in this moment the light powered down. Unbelievable !!
The crowed was out of control !!!!!
I caught some facial expressions from Shane with my camera after the light was back.
After this incident  Shane finished his last rack and deserved the win.

 

Enjoy the photos:

Day 2

Today was a very long day for me: woke up @ 7:00 am and now its 6:05 am 😉

(okok I got 1,5 hours bed time between)

 

What happened today ???

I met a lot of the pros today (Ralph Souquet, Thorsten Hohmann, Grady Mathews and so on….)

I felt like being in a big family, thank you guys !!!

 

Finally I met some friends today (Joerackem aka Kathy  Sullivan and  Joe Nielsen and Fatboy (you all know him))

Thanks guys, I enjoyed it with you today, can’t wait to see you tomorrow.

 

Tested the new OB break cue with the Samsara tips (You have to try this cue guys, I liked it)

 and I also hit some balls with a OB cue and OB-2 shaft.

 

@ the AZ Room I met a lot of nice players/ forum members.

 

And I also played some games. (9 Ball, 10 Ball (Ring game with some AZ guys), Straight Pool, 8 Ball, 9 Ball Bank )

 

Derby is really 24/7 action, you have to see this !!!! To be honest, I’m only @ te room, because I have to sleep some hours.

I looked at all rooms before I went back to the room, and found sleeping players, Pros in discussions,  action (TAR Pit was full),  and the 9 Ball mini tournament still going on.

 

Sorry guys, only two pics today, because I played a lot (My VIP TV seat and me with Grady “The Professor” Matthews):

 

Here a short vide from my VIP TV seat, so you can see how close you can se the pros 😉

 

Sorry for the bad quality, but I have to compress the video to get it uploaded because the internet connection is very slow.

DCC First Pics And Impressions

Still tired (after 28 hours being awake), I wanted to see whats going on.

 

Now I’m sure, here is the Billiard Wonderland. I was not able to stop smiling…..

I was surrounded from pros, cues, tables and action. 

The main tournament room, the TAR pit, the AZ Room

 and a lot of other rooms full of Tables.

Sorry I can’t find the right words for it. Hmmmmm… I think fucking awesome fits best.

 

Just look at the pics:
