There is no shortage of televised pool this weekend, for fans of the International Pool Tour, three-cushion billiards, or the lovely ladies of the Women's Professional Billiard Association.

The IPT will be broadcasting its “King of the Hill” Hall-of-Fame round episode tonight, July 7 at 7 p.m. EST and again at 11 p.m. EST on OLN Network. This episode features 8-ball action between pool's current superstars and the legendary Hall of Famers.

On Sat. July 8 at 7 p.m. EST and 11 p.m. EST, OLN will rebroadcast the round four episode that determined who would challenge Mike Sigel for the “King of the Hill” title. If you miss both of those, it will also be repeated on Sun. July 9 at 12:30 p.m. EST. Later that evening, at 6 p.m. EST, OLN will premiere the final championship match of the “King of the Hill” tournament. This two-hour broadcast features the most prize money in pool history, and therefore a great pressure match.

For fans of three-cushion, on Sat. July 9, AmericaOne Sports will air the third episode of the "Sang Lee International Open 3-Cushion Series," which features an exciting match between Raymond Ceulemans, BCA Hall of Famer and Torbjorn Blomdahl, 10-time world champion.

The world of three-cushion can basically be divided into two camps: Fans of Ceulemans and fans of Blomdahl. Visit americaonesports.com for listing times to see this match of lifelong rivals.

Finally, for the followers of the female cueists, the WPBA will have semi and final matches from the 2006 Great Lakes Classic airing this weekend on ESPN2. The schedule is as follows:
