Other Leagues and Tournaments
Feb 17, 2013, 8:24 pm

We've got pool leagues and tournaments all over town right now. As mentioned, Jackie has moved her leagues, tournaments, pro shop, and lessons from The Down Lo to The Oasis. Her newest 9-ball league starts on February 25th, and sign-ups begin now. If you want to sign up and play some free pool (until 9:00pm), go find her at The Oasis tomorrow night, February 18th.


At the Down Lo, Kevin Cibart wanted me to pass on some downtown tournament information. He's got 9-ball and and 8-ball weekly tournaments already started:


So if my calculations are correct, you can play 9-ball at The Oasis on Mondays, practice on Tuesdays, 8-ball league at the Oasis on Wednesdays or the Down Lo 8-ball tournament, Thursday CMPL (best league ever), party on Friday night, 9-ball Down Lo tournament on Saturday, and then see your distant family on Sundays after free pool at the Down Lo.



Week #14 Results - 2nd Half!
Feb 13, 2013, 2:17 am

Here's what happened last week, Feb. 7th:

The Diamondbacks were home as the Oasis O-Team travelled downstairs. It was all Down Lo in the first half as they went into the beer frame up 10-2, thanks to red-hot Matt Fields and Kenny Duff - they each got 3 wins. Jimmy Scott and Ricky Martin beat Joel and James in the beer frame, 2-0. Joel stayed at the table and held off the inevitable defeat for one match as he got all 3 of his, but Rusty was up next and got 2 to put the D-Backs over the hill. Mike Karol put up a rare 1 out of 3 to get his team's score to 13. The O-Team ended up with 8.

The Down Lo Stickmen were on the road out at the Tackle Box. After a few frog legs and kangaroo burgers, the Stickmen went to work and were up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Brian Norman's 3-0 win. Madsack and Dunes couldn't get past Trevor and Joe, as the 'Box got the beer frame 2-1. Scott, Paul, and Keith got 8 of the final 9 points (Paul Wall and Keith got 3 wins each), making the final score 16-5 Stickmen.

The Bulldogs were hosts to the Eagles and won decisively 14-7. Five of the seven Bulldogs got 2 wins each, Dennis got all 3 of his. Conversely, five of the seven Eagles got 1 win, except for David Napier who got 2 wins. Chris and Ed of the Oasis got the beer frame from David and Donny, 2-1. Robin only got 1 win, but it was with an 8-ball break-and-run.

The Empire would be having a decent season right now if they could just get enough players each week. Again, they only had 6 players and had to forfeit their final 3 points against the visiting Last Call Rack Pack. Even with those 3 gimmees, they made it respectable but lost 13-8. Gary was the big winner of the night getting all 3 of his games. Matt and Kevin (Nickas?) got the beer frame from Bob and Cody and enjoyed some free BIG beers.

The Playa's were on the road taking on the Oasis Dragons last week. In a great match, the Dragons came out on top 12-9. It was tied 6-6 entering the beer frame as the two teams traded 2-1 wins back and forth. Aaron started the separation as he went big and got all 3 of his games in the fifth spot. Jason followed with one win in the sixth spot. And Jon Chamberlin was the hero as he got the winning 11th and final 12th point of the match shooting last. Kevin and Charles did get the beer frame, though - beating Steve and Aaron 2-0. 

Still waiting for Stephen of the Damned Loungers to get his score sheet in for their home match against Duffy's. Once it's in-hand, I'll post the results.

Once I have his scores, I will update the Top Shooter standings on the web site. Again, the top 8 shooters make the tournament, but they must have played in 75% of the total available matches. Keep checking the green column on the left under 'Top Shooters'. I'll keep it up to date on (hopefully) a weekly basis, now that we have entered the 2nd half of the season. The Beer Frame standings need to be adjusted as well - they are off somehow on the printouts, and I'll get them cleaned up and accurate here this week.

Speaking of this week, it's Valentine's Day this Thursday so I decided to keep everyone out of hot water and give everyone the week off to do something special with someone special. 

Games resume on the 21st, except for the Empire Club who will be on the bye. Hopefully they will be looking to recruit some players! Maybe if you aren't getting the playing time you want/deserve, give Mike Dixon a call and play out in Durham, possibly every night! Let me know and I'll get you in contact with him.

Good luck-


Week #13 Results
Feb 7, 2013, 1:38 am

Just to clarify, there is/was a riff between Jackie "Angel of Billiards" Karol and the Down Lo management. She has taken her pro shop, lessons, and leagues across town to the Oasis. So everything Jackie related has moved shop, but as far as the CMPL is concerned, it's business as usual at the Down Lo. Games are all as scheduled.

Here's what went down last week, Jan. 31st - 

The Down Lo Playa's went upstairs to take on the Duffy's Tavern crew. Charles, Dwayne, and Leo got all 3 of their games to help the Down Lo to a 13-8 victory. Leo and Leland beat Ed and Shawn in the beer frame, 2-1.

The Oasis Dragons welcomed in the traveling Eagles last week out at the Oasis. The Dragons came out on top 11-10 in a very close match. The Dragons were up 7-5 at the break as Jason, Jon, and Aaron got 2 out of 3 in their matches. Aaron and Steve beat Jon and Bobbo 2-1 in the beer frame. In the second half Steve and Krad each got 2 for the Dragons (Krad's 2nd win was the deal sealer), but Jon Cox came back with 3 in the last frame to make it a close 11-10 Dragons win.

The Tackle Box were the hosts as the Oasis Bulldogs made it across town. Keith and Dennis got all 3 of their games for the Bulldogs. Bryan and Steve beat Trevor and Jonny in the beer frame, 2-0. Final score: B-Dogs 16, Spinners 5.

The Last Call Rack Pack went to work against the Down Lo Stickmen last Thursday. The 'Pack had all the answers as they beat the Stickmen 15-6. Pat and Gary got all 3 for the home team, as Nicky Tits got the final 2 points to bring them to 15. Sundy and Brian couldn't win a game versus Kevin Nickas and Mike Dowd in the beer frame.

The Oasis Bankers welcomed in the Empire Club, and the 2 teams duked it out in a close battle. The Empire came up a point or two short as they lost 11-10, but they also didn't have a 7th player to shoot. They forfeited the 9th, 10th, and 11th point to the Oasis because they only had 6 players. The visiting squad got 3 games from James to start it off, and 3 points from Bob Cody in the 6th frame to finish it - 1 point short from a win. Bill Ide won all 3 of his games in the 4th spot, and stayed at the table in the beer frame as Mark Edwards joined him to beat Bob and Troy 2-1. 

In an inter-bar matchup at the Down Lo, the Diamondbacks were the 'home' team as they faced the surging Down Lo Damned Loungers. The Loungers were up 7-5 at the break, as Tony, David, and Steve McGrill got 2 out of 3. Jimmy Scott got 2 of his 3 in the 4th spot for the D-Backs. Matt and Rusty beat Jason Jones and Steve McGrill 2-0 in the beer frame. Jason stayed at the table and got 2 out of 3. Yuli was next and got 3 wins - the second was the important 11th for the team. Mike Karol stayed red-hot and got another 3-0 win and got his team to 9 points. Final score: Loungers 12, Diamondbacks 9.

Okay - for everyone ready for a fresh start, it's time for the second half of the season. It all starts over again - same schedule as the first half, but the home team is swapped. As was the first week of the season, the Bankers start the second-half on the bye week.

Good luck to everyone else.


Results from Week #12
Jan 31, 2013, 1:33 am

Here's what happened last week, Jan. 24th:

The Diamondbacks were in a dog fight with the Oasis Bulldogs downstairs at the Down Lo. The Bulldogs ended the Diamondback's bid for a perfect season, as the Oasis came out on top 11-10 in the end thanks to Frank's 3-0 victory. Mike Karol shot last and got it to within one point with his 3-0 victory. This puts Mike Karol at an amazing 95% as he's won 20 out of 21 matches! Greg and Ricky beat Brennon and Ed in the beer frame, 2-0. 

The Bankers were home as the Damned Loungers made the trip over to the West side of town. The Down Lo squad scored all 2's except for Dave Larabee who got 3 out of 3. Yang and Stephen won the beer frame 2-0, beating Jim and Bill 2-0. Final score Loungers 15, Bankers 6.

The Playa's were over at the Last Call taking on the Rack Pack. Apparently there was no karaoke to distract the Playa's as they won big, 18-3. Charles, Kevin, Larry, and Amer got all 3 of their matches. Everyone else 'only' got 2 each. Kevin and Leland got the beer frame, beating Pat and Matt 2-0.

The Duffy's crew were in a close one with the Oasis Dragons. Duffy's came up just short as the Dragons won 11-10. Steve and Jeff got all 3 of their games for the Dragons, and Steve and Micah got the beer frame, beating Steve Swim and Kevin Kinell 2-0. 

The Down Lo Stickmen were in a relatively close match with the Oasis O-Team last week. Teams traded 2-1 wins in the first half and the O-Team was up 7-5 at the break. Scott and Paul Wall couldn't beat James and Joel in the beer frame, as the O won 2-1. Joel got all 3 of his games to get the Oasis to 10 points, and Brian and Slade finished off the night with 3 points combined to put the score at 13-8 Oasis. 

The Empire played host to the Eagles Club out in Durham. The Empire owned the first half as they mounted a 9-3 lead going into the beer frame. Mike Dixon went big with a 3-0 win in the 4th spot. The beer frame info was not filled in on the score sheet so I can't tell you who won or even played for the Eagles (CAPTAINS: READ THE SCORESHEET BEFORE SIGNING!). All I know is James and Eric played somebody, I assume. I do know that David Napier got all 3 of his games for the Eagles as they were ready for a comeback. But Troy shut that door as he came right back with 3 of his own for the Empire, putting them over 11 points. Final score: Empire 13, Eagles 8.

Good luck in the final week of the first half. The Oasis O-Team have the final bye this week. 


Results from Week #11

Updated 1/23/13 -  Got the score sheet from the Diamondbacks/Tackle Box match (details below). The D-Backs won big, 17-4, and those 17 points puts them in a tie for first place with the Playa's. The Diamondbacks are also undefeated at this point - a perfect 10-0. Look out for the Oasis O-Team as well - they are only 4 points behind these two teams!


Here's the report from last Thursday, Jan. 17th...

In a battle of the bar, the Oasis O-Team was 'home' versus the Bankers. The Bankers jumped out to a quick 8-4 lead at the half, thanks to Jim Wilson and Bill Ide's 3-0 wins. Mark E. got it to 8 with his 2-win effort. Lucky for the O-Team, James V. got all 3 of his to keep them in the match. Mike and Brian couldn't get the beer frame as Bankers Barney and Jim got it 2-1. The second half was a different story, though. Brian V. started it off with 2 wins, then Aaron and Slade put up back-to-back 3's to finish the night and make the final score 12-9 Oasis O-Team.

Out at the Last Call, the Down Lo Damned Loungers were the road team, but played it like they were comfortably at home. Yang and David Larabee started the night with back-to-back 3-0 wins, then Tony and Stephen got 2 more each to make it 10-2 at the break. Pat A. and Steve McGrill kept the momentum flowing as they beat Rob and Matt A. in the beer frame for a free road beer. Steve M. stayed at the table to get 2 in the 5th spot, then Jason Jones got all 3 of his, and Yuli wrapped it up with 2 more. Final score Damned Loungers 17, Rack Pack 4.

The Down Lo Stickmen were home hosting the Oasis Dragons last week. In an interesting looking score sheet, it was feast or famine as the teams traded 3-0 wins for the first 5 matches. Kenny started with 3 for the Dragons, then Cele came back with 3. Aaron Smith was next up and got all 3, but Keith tallied 3 right back. Scott and Sundy lost the beer frame to Jeff Brun and Steve Hambek, 2-1. Continuing the pattern, Steve got all 3 in the 5th spot. Scott blew the pattern as he only got 2 in his match, and Jeff only got 2 in his match in the 7th position. For those of you following along and good at math, that made the final score 12-9 Dragons.

Also at the Down Lo, the Playa's were home hosting the Empire Club of Durham. The Playa's were victorious as they won 15-6. Leland got all 3 of his to help his team to an 8-4 lead at the half. He joined Kevin in the beer frame as they beat Troy and Bob 2-0. Worth noting, Kevin and Leland had a Scotch doubles 8 ball break-and-run in their first game. Amer got 3 in the 5th spot to help the score reach 15. 

The Bulldogs were home as Duffy's rolled into the Oasis for a road game. The Bulldogs shot out of the gate as Keith, Brennon, and Chris got 2 of 3 each and Paul chipped in 3 to make it 9-3 at the beer frame. Prana and Shawn were able get the beer frame away from Brian and Ed as Duffy's won 2-0. Prana and Shawn shot well in the bottom half getting 2 out of 3, but captain Steve got all 3 of his in the final match to bring the score to 14-7 B-Dogs.

Out at the Tackle Box, the undefeated Diamondbacks rolled into the joint. The Down Lo squad wasn't messing around as they jumped out to a 10-2 lead at the break. Kenny Duff and Greg got all 3 of their games. Mike Karol and Izzy beat Trevor and Rich Jr. in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom-half, the D-Backs stayed hot as Matt and Mike K. got 3-0 victories. Pops was the high scorer for the Spinners as he got half the teams total with a 2-point victory. Final score: 17-4 Down Lo.

The aforementioned Tackle Box will be on the bye this week, then the Oasis O-Team will have the week off in the 12th and final week of the first half. 

Good luck this week!


Results from Week #10

I've had a few people mention they would like to add pictures to their website profile, or even add some random pictures to the gallery, or maybe update their 4 year old picture. If you have one or a few, send them to me at (or and I'll add them in! See if you can beat the one above (look at it closely) or Wheezel's below.

OK, here's what went down last week...

The Eagles were home hosting the Oasis Bankers last Thursday. The Eagles were up 7-5 at the break. Mark Edwards got all 3 of his games for the Bankers, and Eagle Chuck got a 3-0 as well to keep it close. Mark got back up to join Bill in the beer frame as they took on Donny and Chuck. Bankers got it 2-1. It stayed close in the bottom half, but the Eagles came out on top 12-9.

Downstairs at the Down Lo the Diamondbacks welcomed in their upstairs neighbors - the Duffy's Tavern crew. With Bulldog, Kenny, and Mike Karol's 3-0 scores, and Greg's 2 wins, the Diamondbacks claimed victory in the first half with an 11-1 lead. Prana and Kevin got some payback by beating Matt and Ricky in the beer frame, so at least their drinks were free. Jimmy, Rusty, and Izzy cleaned up the final 3 spots with 1, 2, and 3 wins respectively. Final score: D-Backs 17, Duffy's 4.

In possibly the Game of the Week, the Oasis O-Team welcomed in the first place Playa's. Teams almost traded spots in the standings as the O-Team won 11-10. Playa's was up 7-5 at the beer frame, but the O's wrapped up the night with 6 of the final 9 points. Slade sealed the deal with his 3-0 victory. The Oasis is now 1 point out of first, but they also haven't had their bye week yet. The Diamondbacks who have had their bye week, crept within 2 of first place with their aforementioned big win.

In an intra-bar matchup, the Damned Loungers were the 'home' team versus the Stickmen. The Loungers took control of the first half thanks to Yang's lead-off 3-0 win. They were up 8-4 at the beer frame, which was won by Yuli and Stephen W. In the bottom half Scott got 2 in the 5th spot, but Yuli and Stephen also got 2 for their team, making the final score 13-8 Damned.

Over at the Oasis, the Bulldogs put up some big numbers in their match versus the Empire. You can do the math: James got the first (and only) 2 points for the Empire. The next 6 Bulldog shooters (Dennis, Chris, Brenon, Frank, Ty, and Keith) all got 3 points each. That makes 19 for the 'Dogs, 2 for the Empire. Ed and Brian also got the beer frame, beating Troy and Bob Cody 2-0. The Durhamites left their 7th shooter at home, though, so they forfeited 3 points to the Oasis. Keith didn't have an opponent for his 3 points (which don't count towards individual stats). 

The Last Call Rack Pack stayed at home as the Tackle Box travelled North on 99 for their matchup. The teams were tied at 6 at the break as teams traded 2-1 matches. Kevin L and Curtis won the beer frame 2-1, beating Kent and Trevor. The Last Call finished up nicely with 6 of the final 9 (Nick A got all 3 of his) to make the final score 12-9 Rack Pack.

Wrapping up news from the previous week (January 3rd), the Diamondbacks also won big at the Eagles - 15-6. Mike Brandt and Rusty each got hat tricks for their team. The 2 Mike's also got the beer frame, 2-0. 

The Eagles might be playing pool this Thursday, but it won't be for any points - they're on the bye week.

Good luck to everyone else for the final 2 or 3 games of the first half.


Results from Week #9
Jan 9, 2013, 12:50 am

Here's what happened in Week #9 - Jan. 3rd, 2013:

Duffy's hosted the Tackle Box Spinners last week - and it was a close one. Teams were tied at 6-6 at the break, thanks to Duffy's Woot and Tackle Box's Rich Jr. each getting 3-0 wins. Shawn and Kevin got the beer frame for the Duffers, beating Trevor and Bob 2-0. In the bottom half it was back and forth until Jonny got the 10th and 11th point in the final frame giving his club the 11-10 win on the road.

The Stickmen were on the road at the Oasis taking on the Bankers on the back table. This match was also tied at 6-6 as the teams traded 2-1 wins. Scott and Cele couldn't get the beer frame from Mark Edwards and Bill, as they won 2-1. Keith and Madsack each got 2 wins each and Scott went 3-0 to bring the final score to 13-8 Stickmen.

On the main table at the Oasis, the Dragons were taking on the Oasis Bulldogs in an intra-bar matchup. It was 5-4 Dragons after the third match, but newcomer to the Bulldogs (jumping from the Dragons to the 'Dogs), making his 2012-13 debut, Brenon got all 3 of his to make it 7-5 Bulldogs at the break. Aaron and Jeff Brun got the beer frame 2-0 against Ed and Brian. Frank made a rare appearance and got 3 wins to help propel his team to a 13-8 Bulldog win.

Out at the Last Call, the Rack Pack were up against the Oasis O-Team. James V. got all 3 of his in the 3rd spot to bring the O-Team to an 8-4 lead at the break. Captain Mike and Brian V. got the beer frame from Rob and Kevin Nickas, 2-1. Slade wrapped up the night with a 3-0 hat trick to make the final score 14-7 O-Team.

The Damned loungers were the only Down Lo team at home last week, except for the Playa's who were around on their bye week. They welcomed in the Durham Empire Club. The final score was 12-9 Damned Loungers, thanks to David Larabee and Yang's 3-0 wins. The Chinese connection got the beer frame again, beating Bob Cody and Rick Beller.

Still waiting for the scoresheet from the Eagles and their match against the Diamondbacks of Down Lo. I'll edit this post as soon as a sheet is submitted.

Good luck next week - the Dragons get the week off for their bye.


Results from Week #8
Dec 28, 2012, 1:31 am


Here's a recap of the games from the week before Christmas, December 20th...

The Tackle Boxers were home hosting the Oasis Bankers last Thursday night. The 'Box jump out to an early 7-5 lead thanks to Rich Jr.'s 3-0 win. Trevor and Zook beat Mark E. and Barney in the beer frame, 2-1. Bob started the seconf half with two wins for the Spinners, and Pops came up big with 3 of his own, bringing the score to 12-6. Bill Ide shot last for the Bankers and made it respectable by getting all 3 of his, making the final score 12-9 Tackle Box.

Downtown at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were 'home' taking on their barmates, the Diamondbacks. Izzy got 3, Kenny got 2, and Mike B. got 2 to make the score 8-4 at the break in favor of the D-Backs. Paul Wall got 2 for the Down Lo to keep it within reach. Scott and newbie Kris teamed up in the beer frame and beat Rusty and Ricky 2-0. Scott stayed at the table and got 3 wins, making the score 8-7. Keith got his first game tying it up at 8 all, but Ricky got the next 2 and Jimmy Scott got 2 out of 3 to make the final score 12-9 Diamondbacks.

Across town at the Oasis, the Bulldogs 'welcomed' in the Last Call Rack Pack. Chris and Dennis each got 3 in the first 2 matches to jump out to a quick lead. Chris got one of his via an 8-ball break and run. It was 9-3 at the half when Brian and Ty teamed up against Kevin Nickas and Rob Francis. Brian and Ty forced the Rack Pack to buy the beers this week as they won 2-1. Ty stayed at the table and stayed hot getting all 3 of his games. Captain Steve wrapped up the game in style with 3 of his own. Final score Bulldogs 16, Rack Pack 5.

Way out at the Empire, the Dragons rolled into town to soak up some mega-mugs 'o beer and play some pool. Thanks to James' 3-0 showing the Empire was up 7-5 at the break. Paul also got 2 to help the cause. In the beer frame, Empire scotch double partners Bob Cody and James teamed up and won against Steve Hambek and John Chamberlin. Steve stayed at the table and got 2 for his club. Krad was up next and got all 3 of his to put the Oasis on the hill with 10 points. Kenny shot last and got his first game for the deciding 11th point, but Bob Cody got the last 2 to make it a one-point match - 11-10 Dragons.

The Oasis O-Team was home taking on the Eagles crew. Joel Russo started the night with a quick 3-0 win, and Brian A. chipped in 2 more to help the score reach 7-5 O' at the break. Mike and Jimmy N. took on Bobbo and Chuck in the beer frame. The O-Team came out on top with a 2-0 win. Chuck got 2 of his games to bring the match score to 8-7 Oasis, but secret weapon Aaron flew under the radar to get 3 wins, and Slade tidied up the night with a nice 2-1 win making the final score 13-8 Oasis.

A very good game was brewing at the Down Lo as the other two home teams were also facing off, the Playa's and the Damned Loungers. The score was tied at 6-6 as Yang and David Larabee each got 2 wins, as did Playa's Dwayne and Leland. Leo got up to join Leland at the table for the beer frame against Jason Jones and captain Stephen Wells. Team Leo-land got the match 2-1. Larry got 2 more for the Playa's in the 5th spot, Pat got 2 for the Loungers in the 6th spot making the score 9-9 going into the 7th and final frame. Leo needed 2 for the win, but got greedy and got all 3 making the final score 12-9 Down Lo Playa's. 

Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break. Hopefully you were lucky enough to get some pool paraphernalia from Santa! Remember, we're back at it next week with games on January 3rd, except for the Playa's - they have their bye week.

Good luck!
