End Of The World 10-Ball Tournament of the Mayans
Hard Times Billiards, Bellflower, CA
It’ll be a long and busy month this December for Bellflower’s Hard Times Billiards in SoCal, which is scheduled to host at least 4 tournaments by outside promoters. The most curious of all though will occur on Friday, December 21st, 2012; a date of infamy which the ancient Mayan civilization, self-proclaimed prophets and conspiracy theorists alike say will mark the ‘end of days’ for all.
In association with Kamui Billiard Products, Point Of View Pool (POV Pool), Viking Cues, Andrew Park Cues, The Orange County APA, Max Eberle’s ‘Pro Pool Academy’ & Virtual Pool 4 – Hard Times Billiards will hold the first (and last), “End Of The World: 10-Ball Tournament Of The Mayans!”
This $1,000 added, one-day, double elimination tournament is open to only 32 players and is currently taking registrations until the field is full. The entry fee for this event will be $100 which means that with a full field of 32, this event will pay out $4,000 through 8th place. And, since ‘the end is near’, sponsors of the event have agreed to part with over 50 prizes and giveaways throughout the event, ranging from cues, shafts, Kamui chalk & tips, Cue Cases, DVD’s and much more.
John Bertone states, “I phoned Daniel Busch of POV Pool just a few days ago and said, ‘Hey, isn’t it supposed to be the end of the world next month on December 21st?’. Within minutes, Daniel and I were on the same page, working out the details, pitching for sponsors and surveying players to see if this should happen. As it turns out, it seems that the ‘end of the world’ is a pretty easy sell. After all, if you’re a pool player, not even the end of times is going to stop you from doing what you love to do the most, which is to play pool and go out in a blaze of glory!”
Daniel states, “We are expecting to see great pool, by the most talented players from all over! Considering the prize fund and the entry fee, we are only expecting the best of the best to take part, but we are sure that there will be a few surprise entries from players far and wide. After all, it’s supposed to be the LAST chance to get some table time with some of pool’s greatest idols! As soon as we receive our first 16 entries, we will begin to announce them. I would like to thank the owner of Hard Times – Eddie Arreguin, Tournament Director – Marie Lim and House Pro – Dave Hemmah for providing their help and services to make this event take place.”
To register for this event, please call: Daniel Busch @ 310-923-6639
Live streaming will take place via Pay-Per-View by POV Pool for $9.95 and will run for the duration of the entire event starting at 12PM PST. To purchase PPV tickets for this event, please visit,http://www.ustream.tv/channel/povpool
