Saturday i went to Pockets in Lansing, Michigan to play in thier new end of the month Open 9ball tournament. And I was very Impressed with how it was run.

The equipment was nice GC4's which played nice and fast too! the balls were Brunswick centennials which were cleaned regularly through-out the tournament.

And the food at the place is excellent too.

They running a tournament the last Saturday of every month.

The next one is Oct 28.

Entry Fee: 60$

Tables Open @ 1030am Calcutta starts @ 1130am

Field Limit of 48players

Race: 7/7 DE Winner break, Finals to 9

The first tournament had a good field of 21 players and I would expect the field will grow in the next couple of months till it fills up completely.

Calcutta payed over 600$ for 1st place and Prize funds payed out close to 400$ for 1st place.

Josh Brothers placed first over local fav Arnie Castillo.

Matt Beckwith finished 3rd and local fav Jerry Diaz took 4th.

There was over 1700$ in total prize funds.

I totally recommend anyone who can make the drive to Lansing, Michigan to come to this tournament.
