Fellow One Pocket legend Grady Mathews will be on hand to make the presentation to Nick on Wednesday evening, the second day of the One Pocket tournament.

Nick was one of the original players elected in the class of 2004 One Pocket Hall of Fame, but was unable to attend the banquet at the Derby City Classic last January due to a schedule conflict.

Danny Di Liberto

Well-deserved congratulations go out to Nick!
A special thanks goes to Fast Eddie’s Sports Bar and Grill for making it possible to honor Nick at their popular event. The Carolina’s Open kicks off with the One Pocket division player’s meeting at noon on Tuesday September 6. The $5000 added One Pocket tourney is one of the premier regional events in the game. It is followed by the main event $20,000 added 9-ball which kicks off Thursday, and is expected to attract a stellar field of top players.
