Bustamante and Fong-Pang Video

Belinda Campos Calhoun covered the Challenge of Champions tournament at the ESPN Zone in 2001. I saw her about a month after this tournament and she was telling me about the matches, as she pulled out this piece of paper that had all these notes about kicks, shots, jumps, safes, etc., on it. She was very excited about what she witnessed - little did I realize until the end of the conversation that all those notes and shots she was talking about were all in one game! She said it was one of the most amazing games she's ever seen. It turns out it was also a sudden death tie breaker in the finals (for $50,000). WOW! And here is the video. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Melinda

I just came across your nice blog. Thanks for the good writing :)

2 Years ago I hosted a series of online pool video contests. The one for August 2008 was based on the very same video you are showing here. Someone got a perfect score there. Later I show the contest video to Chao himself, laughters bursted from the "Cold Face Killer" (Chao's nickname)

Check it out!

Also, check out what we have at and how you can add it to your blog :)
