The season opener of the Planet Pool 9-Ball Tour begins today at 12:00
noon sharp at Champion Billiards in Laurel, Maryland.

Check out the website for more info:  http://www.planet-pool.com

The presentation for the points winners of last season will occur
during the players' meeting, and then the festivities will begin.

Champions is a great facility with many tables to accommodate the
100-plus players who usually show up on the PP 9-Ball Tour.  The tour
itself is growing due to the hard work and dedication of its staff and
thanks to the cast of regular players, some who are actually sponsors
themselves.

The tournaments are always a lot of fun and are open to players of all
caliber.  It is a great way to stay in stroke and enjoy the game in all
its glory.

120 players showed up at Champion Billiards in Laurel, Maryland, for
the season opener of the Planet Pool 9-Ball Tour.

Some of the players who came include Ryan "Genie Man" McCreesh, last
season's finale champion Brett Stottlemyer, the mysterious Eddie
Abraham, Veteran Don Steele, North Carolina Champion B.J. "G.I. Joe"
Ussery, Nick Maninno, Keith McCready, Delaware's Finest Kevin West,
Roadster Pookie, Jump-Ball Mechanic Danny Green, the incredible and
lovely Sueyen Rhee, UPA Touring Pro Mike Davis, APA Champ Jim "Shorty"
Henson, and ***ia Veterans Billy Stephens and "Jimmy Mack" McAdams.

The ladies open will begin at 11:00 a.m. today, Sunday, and the second
day of the open event will continue. Still on the A side, Keith plays
Danny Green at 1:45 p.m. Mike Davis is still on the A side. Pookie and
Ryan both got knocked to the losers' bracket their first round, but
they're still*** tough. First place pays $1,500, and second place
pays $1,000. I didn't catch the rest of the payouts, but as is
customary, this tour pays out three-eighths of the field.

"G.I. Joe" a/k/a B.J. Ussery made the trek from North Carolina to
Laurel, MD, and he is still on the A side.  He told me he's not been
competing as much lately because his mom recently had surgery and he's
been*** around the homefront making sure things run smoothly.
Nice kid, and a great player.  He's capable of winning the whole
shebang (IMO)!
