Congrats to Dennis Orcullo, the new US Open One-Pocket Champion beating Corey Deuel from USA twice 4-0 in the hotseat and 5-3 in the finals.

BRACKETS > http://www.azbilliards.com/tours_and_events/161-us-open-one-pocket-championship/5057-us-open-one-pocket-championship-2013/brackets/6-main-tournament/

==============================================================
Dennis Orcollo has added a US Open One Pocket title to his already impressive resume.

Image

Orcollo never allowed an opponent to the hill in an undefeated run through the winner's side. A Friday night win 4-2 win over Chris Bartam left Orcollo facing Derby City One Pocket Champion Corey Deuel for the hot-seat. That match would be fairly anti-climactic with Dennis defeating Deuel 4-0.

After Deuel's five hour 3-2 win over Carlo Biado on Saturday night, the fans knew they would get an Orcollo/Deuel rematch in the finals.

The final race to five on Sunday started out with Orcollo taking a 2-0 lead in a defensive battle. Neither player seemed willing to go for anything risky and Deuel fought off his usual desire to go for the home run shot. Deuel finally won a game in rack three and then tied things up at 2-2 and again at 3-3.. The first six racks had been long tactical battles, but Deuel made a mistake on his break return in rack seven and allowed Orcollo a quick run to get to the hill at 4-3. Rack eight saw Deuel put togeher multiple small runs to take a 7-2 lead in ball count and most fans on the rail were certain we were in store for a hill-hill match. Deuel passed on multiple semi-risky shots that Orcollo baited him with, but it was finally a fairly straight forward safety that spelled the end for Deuel. He left Orcollo a shot with a very tough table and Orcollo ran the final six balls on the table for the 5-3 win and first place.

Orcollo won't be able to enjoy his $7500 check for long, as he is now two rounds behind in the ongoing US Open 10-Ball Championship where he is attempting to defend his title. He will have a 10:00 am match against Kenichi Uchigaki with the winner taking on Shane Van Boening later in the day on Monday.

Deuel settled for $4800 in second place prize money.

corey deuel is considered one of the top heavyweights in one pocket billiards, so this must be a great
accomplishment by dennis orcollo. i want to know though if efren reyes was in this contest because
if there's one non-american that is most talked about in one pocket tournaments, it's efren.

Unfortunately Efren did not participate, might be due to health issues and being 59 years old doesn't help either when you factor in traveling etc. But Efren had already won this title in 2011 so it's not something that he still needed to accomplish. Efren is still regarded one of the best if not still the best 1pocket player in the world today. His creativity is unparalleled :D

Congrats to Dennis.
Efren is in Japan.
He's been there since July 12.

Efren did not do well in Tunica before he went back to
the Phil on July 1. He lost to Django in one pocket match
really bad.
He was already committed to playing in Japan just as Corteza was.

The US Open 10 Ball is currently underway, only three players left in the running for the title. In the one-loss side will be Dennis Orcollo vs Lee Vann Corteza. Waiting in the finals is Rodney Morris. Hopefully either of Dennis or Lee Vann pulls the win, especially Dennis since he is defending champion. If he wins this he will have both the one pocket and 10-ball titles simultaneously.. that's pretty amazing and once in a lifetime achievement.

Congrats Dennis! Here's a blow by blow by somebody who watched the One Pocket finals:

"For those who couldn't stay up.
They had a game that lasted an hour and 50 minutes, I believe that brought the score to 3-3.

Then Dennis' next break was very strong, a ball was maybe 5
inches from the hole and whitey was on the other side of the rack.
Corey's options to get the cue ball close to Dennis' hole were limited,
he thinned off a ball and over hit it just a bit, enough for Dennis to get
that near-hanging ball. There looked to be only 5 open balls,
but Dennis played some great positional shots and I believe got
an 8'n'out in about 7 minutes.

Then the next game turned into another slow wedge.
I think Dennis blew a great chance to run at least 4 or 5 and got a very cold roll.
Corey came back with his own funny roll, but played smart and protected
one of his hangers for quite a while. He'd squirrel away a ball here and there,
capitalizing on small mistakes with great long banks that either went in or hung.

Corey Deuel was up I believe 6 to -1, or 7-0... and playing VERY conservatively,
bunting balls up table, passing up chances to cross bank spotted balls,
just constantly leaving Dennis frozen to the foot rail. Dennis stole a ball or two.

Somehow Corey finally sold out, and Dennis showed how superior
firepower can sometimes nullify hours of defense.
I'm too tired to recall perfectly, but the final balls looked something like this.
Dennis needed them all.

He shot off A and B with ease, but somehow way overran shape on the 6 by a mile.
He did a funky low outside shot, using a common spin in an uncommon way,
to reverse off the 2nd rail a bit. The cue ball dropped beatifully into line for the 3.

He was too straight to slide sideways for the four. So he just draws straight back
and cuts the 4 all the way down for the match."

US Open 10 Ball update

Lee Vann "The Slayer" Corteza lost the hot seat match to Rodney "The Rocket" Morris, 9 games to 2 and was
relegated to the Losers' bracket. He will play the defending champ, compatriot Dennis Orcullo for the right to play Rodney
in the finals.

Dennis made his path tougher when he lost his very first game against Chris Melling, losing 9 games to 7. He then made a
tear on the B side when he scalped head after head starting with Manny Chau (9-1), C. Lawson (9-2), Nikos Ekonomopoulos
(9-6), Walter Cheng (9-2), Kenichi Uchigaki (9-5), Shane Van Boening (9-5), Denis Grabe (9-2), Jin Hu Dang (9-6), Ko Pin Yi (9-3),
Wu Jia Qing or Wu Chia Ching (9-7) to finally earn the right to play the loser of the hot seat match, Lee Vann Corteza...

Watching one pocket is like watching the grass grow, or the paint dry, it's a very dragging game.
The final score was 5-3, a total of 8 games, which lasted for like 5+ hours. Good luck finding it on youtube!
