So, that takes care of this years edition of the US Open.

What a finals. IMO, one of the best finals, it was a tight match with all the drama; runout Pool, safety battles, and tight, close games. Shane didn't pull away til the score was 9-9 and the lead changed hands a couple of times.

Speaking of players, I photographed the "Wild Desert Spotted Poolplayer" in his natural environment. (see pic 1). http://www.insidepoolmag.com/forums/attachments/jimbo/1515d1193069450-2007-us-open-thread-spot.jpg

I had a great time playing in the Billiards Digest CCB Tourney VI. As always, it was great seeing old friends. Thanks to Barry Behrman for donating tables for us and all the sponsors that stepped up to donate prizes. If you're an amateur hack like us and were thinking about going to the Open to watch, you should really consider playing the CCB tourney. Good times. Oh yeah, I just want to apologize for not standing up before the finals (when Barry called for the CCB members to stand up and be recognised). Truthfully, I'm not much of an "in the spotlight" guy (you'd never know it from my big mouth) and it has no reflection on my respect for the other forum members.

In case someone in Siberia didn't get the news, Shane Van Boening kicked azz and won the tourney, undefeated. (See pic 2) http://www.insidepoolmag.com/forums/attachments/jimbo/1516d1193069450-2007-us-open-thread-win.jpg

You might need to register, Jack. I dunno how it works, so if you cant see em, that might be the problem.

Here is the players list as of 10/01. I'm sure there were some late entries and I know for a fact that there were a few no-shows.

The poster formerly known as Kato is now known as ARJ. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Unfortunately the beautiful 9BallGirl is on a self-imposed pool sabbatical. We were the worse for it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Quick story before I go home-

So, I run into JR Calvert outside the convention ctr and he has a story for me. Seems like someone recognised him and asked him to autograph a 9 ball. Then, Nick Varner walks by adn the guy asks Nick to sign one too, hands him a 9 ball to sign, then asks Varner if he finished in the top 16 in the tourney, which Nick supposedly replied "No". After hearing that, the guy TAKES the 9 ball outta Nicks hands before he signs it!

I guess he doesn't know who Nick Varner is...

That's too funny! What a put down to Nick. I was playing in a PA. State 8 ball tournament several years ago. Allen Hopkins had entered, and the person he played had no idea who he was/is. That was the big joke for the weekend.
