About the BCAPL National Championships

The BCAPL National Championships is held each July in Las Vegas, NV and has been dubbed "The Greatest Pool Tournament in the World!"  With more than 30 divisions, 300+ pool tables, 50+ exhibitors, and professional events, there is something for everyone! Read below for more information.

Eligibility - "Anyone Can Play!"

There is a common misconception that all participants must be a member of a BCAPL-sanctioned league. While we highly encourage local league participation, we also recognize that many people live in an area that does not offer a BCAPL-sanctioned league. Therefore, we have created an individual membership called the CSI Associate Membership to allow people to play in state, regional, and national events.  Click here to learn more...

CONGRATULATIONS SUPER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!
Team Shawn won the first set against Team Randy in the true double elimination format, so they had to play another set.... The second set tied 2-2 and they could have played a tie breaker round but they all decided to split the $7,000.00 1st and 2nd place combined prize money. What a great ending to a great Super League season.

The Best in the West Battle for a Cause – Rebecca Wagner Wins the Western Women’s Charity 9-ball Challenge

Posted on April 2, 2015 by Brook Thomason

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.
