The Derby City Classic is a unique event on the pool scene. Already in its 17th year, it is nothing short of a marathon for the 400+ registered players, who can compete in many tournaments, around the clock, for ten days.
As the Derby founder Greg Sullivan would say: »If you haven’t missed anything, we haven’t done our job right ». It’s the feeling you get after spending a few hours in the venue. While you could be witnessing a great battle between World-class players, you’re probably missing out on another thriller, a few tables apart. That’s the paradox of this event: you see great pool for ten days, but you also miss a lot of the action.
You can see a lot more on AZBilliards’s albums by clicking here.
I also posted a few shots in a Facebook album where I pictured a few regulars such as Shane Van Boening, Dennis Orcollo or John Brumback, a formidable banks player.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Diamond Billiards for welcoming me to their event once again, as well as Billiards Digest and AZBilliards for their help.
