2011 BCA ANNUAL 8-BALL
Docs Tavern hosted the BCA annual pool tournament held Feb. 25 through Feb. 27. There were 32 BCA qualified players from Oregon and Washington signed up to play in the $1,000 tournament. Players were divided into groups of eight by known ability, then each match was handicapped to make the competition as equal as possible.
Each year Docs puts on this tournament to get players ready for the grueling regional event the WBCA holds. The regional tournament is a double elimination race to five format which means to win a match the player must win five games.
The tournament started at 5 p.m., Saturday and concluded at 5:30 p.m., on Sunday, for a total of 48.5 hours.
Group 1 included four past champions Mark Larson, Curtis Bade, Bill Herman and Tom Myer. Bill Herman beat Curtis Bade 5 to 3, Jim Mortensen beat Pat Ryan 5 to 4, Tom Myer made a comeback to defeat Eddie Lau 5 to 4 and Mark Larson beat Don Sheldon 5 to 4 by taking the last two games.
Group 2 included favorites Dwain Schultz, Woody Phillips and Jack Rubino. David Berkman beat Dwain Schultz 5 to 4, Bob Hunt defeated Woody Phillips, Jack Rubino beat Jim Harrison 5 to 4, and Robert Reed beat Richard Davis 5 to 4.
Group 3 included the top lady shooters in the area and 2009 champ Frank Warner. Cindy Bade hammered Warner 5 to 3, Jenny Sheldon beat Jason Hoygaard 5 to 2, Dee Reis ousted ex-master player Sheree Larson 5 to 4, and Bonnie Russell sent Doug Keilwitz to the penalty box by winning 5 to 4.
Group 4 consisted of seasoned veterans and pool hall junkies who love the game of pool. Tina Nelson beat Jim Vanek and then Ron Krause outlasted Vickie Beamguard. Earl Ransom beat Tina Wiegart and Don Michaud pounded Bonnie Danel.
Surviving to finish in the money by placing in the top eight were: 1st Bill Herman, $250; 2nd Bonnie Russell, $200; 3rd Tom Myers, $150; 4th Don Michaud, $150; 5th Bob Hunt, $100; 6th Doug Keilwitz, $75; 7th David Berkman, $60; 8th Ron Krause, $40.
The tournament ran smoothly and the players displayed good sportsmanship. A big thank you to Bill Herman, Eddie Lau and Bonnie Danel for their assistance. Special thanks goes to the crew at Docs for making this tournament the best ever.
