With the goal of contributing to the lives of those in need, the Western Women’s Charity 9-ball Challenge took place at Rum Runner Lounge in Las Vegas on March 28-29, 2015. This was the last in the series of three tournaments hosted there each spring. Doc Hill (a “B” player event for the locals) and The Andy Mercer Memorial (full of top names playing to honor a local legend) were the first two in the lineup. The Andy Mercer event was held the weekend prior, and was won by Phoenix, AZ pro Scott Frost.

Room owner Gino and the staff at Rum Runner (Melissa, Darren, Shannon, Tara, and the kitchen crew) took great care of the forty-five women and the crowd of locals who gathered to support The Shade Tree (theshadetree.org), a local charity committed to providing strength and hope to the women, children, and pets of Southern Nevada. $7,325 was raised through the calcutta, donations, a raffle, and an online auction hosted by local player Tim Kovacs. Thank you to the sponsors who helped make these efforts a success.

A great two days of pool was played by women from Arizona, Nevada, and California at Rum Runner’s in a double-elimination, handicapped format. The highlight first-round match up was between two locals—Tina Feliciano racing to 7 and Stacy Allsup going to 8. Tina had been the highest-priced calcutta bid at $620, while Stacy has previously won the event, making for an exciting match to watch. Games went back and forth, but Stacy edged it out with a 8-5 win. She then made her way to the hot seat with wins over Vicki Carter (5), Amy Kane (6) Christina Jeff (5), and Debra Aarens (7).

Meanwhile, another Las Vegas-based player, Rebecca Wagner started out with impressive wins over Gabby Smith (4) 8-0 and Stephanie Martin (4) 8-1. Rebecca went on to beat Gina Quinones (a 6 who had a hill-hill win over local Ashea Erdahl 6 to play Rebecca), then knocked Bernie Store to the one loss side. A few other players supporting the cause included Heather Cortez (7), Christy Lipps (6), Katy Moore (6), Claudia Justis (6), Melinda Huang (7), and Brook Thomason (6).

The “hot seat” match between Stacy Allsup and Rebecca Wagner was a hard-fought battle that left Rebecca the victor. Bernie Store came through the left side with a tough win over Stacy for a rematch with Rebecca in a double elimination final. Bernie won 7-2 first set, and in a nail-biter, Rebecca broke and ran the hill-hill game to take the win.

A big thank you to Amy Kane, Darrell Jeff, Ben Gonzalez for directing the tournament, Christina Gonzales, Christina Jeff, Ray Ray Patterson, Gina Quinones, Jason Kane, Mike Stubbs and Robin Verner for their help in running the event, organizing, taking photos, getting the word out and collecting donations.

2015 PartyPoker Mosconi Cup

Annual Europe v USA showdown set for Tropicana

 

THE NEW TROPICANA LAS VEGAS, arguably one of the most iconic brands on the Las Vegas Strip, will play host to the 22nd annual PartyPoker Mosconi Cup, which takes place from Monday December 7 to Thursday December 10.

Now making its seventh appearance in Las Vegas, the Mosconi Cup is pool’s biggest brand. Known as the ‘Ryder Cup of Pool’, it features two five-man teams representing the USA and Europe competing in a series of singles and doubles matches.

Televised throughout, the event is aired live in the UK and Ireland, Australia, the Middle East and the USA. In addition highlights packages will be aired in the likes of Holland, Italy, Canada and Germany, among others.

The New Tropicana Las Vegas has undergone an extensive $200 million transformation and looks forward to entertaining the biggest team event in cue sports. 

With total domination by Team Europe in recent times – America last tasted victory in 2009 – Team USA will be looking to have the backing of the biggest crowd in Mosconi Cup history as they attempt to turn back the tide.

Commented Matchroom Sport Chairman Barry Hearn; “I am delighted to be taking the Mosconi Cup to the New Tropicana Las Vegas this year and after the huge crowds at Blackpool last December, I believe we can surpass that this time.

“It’s always very exciting to be taking the Mosconi Cup to a new venue and we will be working very hard with the all-new resort and casino over the coming months to make this one to remember.

“Las Vegas is always a special place for the Europeans and they have enjoyed great success in recent years but it’s about time that the USA side took back the Cup. With the support of a huge American crowd I believe that they will have every chance in December.”

Information on how to purchase tickets to pool’s number one event will be made available shortly.

The 2015 PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP is sponsored by PartyPoker, the world's leading online poker site. The Official Table of the Mosconi Cup is supplied by Diamond Billiards, the cloth is supplied by Iwan Simonis and the Official Balls are Super Aramith by Saluc.
