The Inaugural Saguaro Cup Team Tournament!
Let’s just paint a little picture if you will. First, you have the ever popular, Mosconi Cup, which Sky Sports and Matchroom Sport have been showcasing since 1994. Its always an action packed event, featuring carefully selected team members from both Europe and the U.S. who face-off under some of the most strenuous team and singles format 9-Ball matches that also include the steering and guidance of famous Team Captains and Co-Captains from each side…
POV Pool is proud to provide, live-streamed coverage of the first ever ‘Saguaro Cup’ Team Event at Skip and Jan’s Sports Bar in Tempe, Arizona! Played on two, 9 foot, Gold Crown Tables, the best of West Pheonix. AZ and East Phoenix, AZ have come together to match up in its most strenuous team event in history who are eager to earn the (soon to be prestigious) Saguaro Cup! Played in just one-day, the East Phoenix Team (EastMode) will battle with the West Phoenix Team (BestSide) to play an astounding possible, 21 matches or a race to 11 matches. Each scheduled match will differ from Singles, Scotch and Team format play that could end early or late, depending on the outcome of each match!

The 3rd Annual Cole Dickson Memorial 9-Ball Tournament
Family Billiards – San Francisco, CA
There are only a few players of their time who were called ‘The Best Money Players on Earth’ – Cole Dickson was just that guy, who was known to walk into a pool room and play the ghost for as much as $1,000 a rack, was also known for the famous ‘Twistback’ bank-shot and also recognized as the guy in the deer-hunting cap! We lost Cole to liver cancer in 2013 and most common pool players know very little about this man, who was unshakable as far back as the early 1970’s.
Streaming live from Family Billiards in San Francisco, CA, we have Cole’s long time friend and venue owner, Delburt Wong and Cole’s daughter, Christine Dickson to thank for holding this event once again. POV Pool is pulling some strings to use some rare footage of Cole in action for playback during the live-streamed coverage of this 3rd annual 9-ball tournament!
