Haha, This looks like it could be a lot of fun, but I'm poor at pool, and don't have a ton of money, either. Have fun, and good luck, all of you.

Soul Eater May 8 2009 11:20 PM EDT

Can I get a link to the exact game we are going to play so I can practice since I haven't played yahoo pool in years.

{cb2}ShadeSlayer May 9 2009 10:19 AM EDT

Ok we are going to play on yahoo:


Under the Beginner section

Room Poor Boy Blues

Table 1

These people are the contestants


Seeing as we have only five people we will have a freebie on both the winners table and the losers table.

When you get into the Yahoo pool room, i will invite you to the table.

Games will be played once i have heard from all of the players and all are online. Otherwise we have to wait......

Soul Eater May 9 2009 12:40 PM EDT

dude what's the link?

Lefty May 9 2009 12:43 PM EDT

If this is Yahoo! Pool,

Found here (For you Warlord) : http://ca.games.yahoo.com/

Then I'll join this if there is a spot availible, AS LONG as it will be done before 5:30. I have to work tonight, so anything later than that is a no no for me.

Let me know.

Also, what are the rules about disconnecting? Sometimes my wireless internet reboots itself to provide a better connection and causes me to disconnect.

Lefty May 9 2009 1:00 PM EDT

Count me out.
Girlfriend may want me to go to the mall.

Goodluck guys.

Lefty May 9 2009 1:08 PM EDT

Annnd for the dreaded TRIPLE-Post..

No more mall, so count me in if you will be done my 5:30 and need someone to play. :)

Here is an update:

Final Loser Bracket game is in-progress.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Lefty May 9 2009 4:01 PM EDT

And It's all over.

1st Place Winner: Emotion
2nd Place Winner: Warlord_GogetaSS4

Came down to the last shot on the table. Both sides were clear and it was a fight to sink the black. Very fun tournament, especially for only four players.

Thanks to Durin for setting this up. Hopefully we'll see more of these in the future and get a better turn out.

Here are the final standings:
