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...

how about that 19 year old boy wonder from china WANG CAN, did he participate in this tournament mod observer?



He was MIA... Here's a list of all the competitors for the US Open 1 Pocket, 10 Ball and 8 Ball.
The 8 ball players' list not yet final, I believe. There's a lost of missing names there, including our very own Dennis...

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."

nice one mod observer, thanks. hope to see the whole match at youtube soon.



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!

i've been watching one pocket matches on youtube especially efren's, and i enjoy it. it's kinda watching a chess match.
i tell you, a player who has excellent ball control and patience has the edge in this kind of game. yeah, i'm looking forward to seeing orcollo's one pocket game against deuel as soon as someone provides the video. :)

Frankly, Efren's the only one I can stand watching play one-pocket.
Live and on video.
Everyone else looks boring to me.

true, it's because of efren's masterful control of the cue ball that makes the game so interesting.
why i'm interested in seeing the orcollo vs deuel match is because i want to know how dennis did it.

Dennis Robocop Orcullo wins US Open One-Pocket Championship 2013... that is good.

Why oh why? Why does the purse is sooooooo smalllllllll! Only $7,500.00 !!

That is peanut compared to Pacquao's guaranteed purse of $20 Million US dollars per fight.
:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
