Pool Synergy - Pool Meccas

Pool Meccas is the topic for this Month's Poolsynergy blog run. 

I think it's not difficult to figure out my favorite Pool Mecca is the BCAPL 8Ball Nationals in Vegas every year in May.  I believe I have been going there since 1995 - 16 years straight!

I love every single thing about it:

  • I actually like the Riv!  Familiarity is my friend.
  • I love Katy's - awesome food choices and late night breakfast specials
  • All the different events keep me going every single year!
  • Seeing friends from all across the world in one place.
  • Watching the pros play along side the amateurs
  • Trying to earn the titles in the different events is exhilarating.
  • Being able to watch and support my friends play in matches for ten days.
  • Las Vegas is my favorite city, so it's an extra added bonus this huge tourney is hosted there.
  • The BCAPL run a good tournament - from online brackets to on-time matches.  It's a well oiled machine, my friend.
I could go on and on and on... and on!

The one Pool Mecca I have yet to see in person is Derby.  I hear it's awesome!  I heard it was better at the previous casino, but I still keep hearing it's the place to visit to watch good tourney matches and good action matches.
