jeremy headJeremy Head is my featured player this month, as he stands out in my mind for many reasons. Jeremy joined TAP Las Vegas in 2006 and has played on numerous teams throughout the year. His dedication to the league and positive attitude are very much appreciated.

This session, Jeremy is playing 9-ball on Tuesdays and 8-ball Wednesday thru Friday! As in all the previous years, he competed this year in the Vegas Masters 8-Ball and in our first annual VM 9-Ball State Championship tournaments.

So what’s different and so very special about Jeremy this year? After ALL of his teams placed in their divisions, he ended up competing on all 4 of teams in the Vegas Masters 8-Ball and 9-Ball. Three of those 4 teams placed and will be competing in the upcoming 2010 TAP League Nationals in 8-ball and 9-ball!

Jeremy will need to bring his runnin’ shoes to Nationals. He’ll be representing TAP Las Vegas, Office 6, Stake Out and the Gin Mill this year. We look forward to seeing him play and will be there to cheer him on to victory!

Congrats also to Fun & Games for earning 2nd place and Menehunes and Lights Out for earning 3rd and 4th. It was a great weekend with friends, playing pool and having a good time.

On day 1, we started with 8 teams and 57 very skilled shooters playing pool ALL day on all Diamond tables in the air conditioned comfort of Mickey's! A pool junkies dream.


We started day 2 with Set to Kill competing with Lights Out. The first 2 matches with John Vece and Harold Shimojo, and Grant Gilbert and Lee Doerr going hill/hill and the last in a race to 3 was Gordon Graham vs. Ryan Caparida of Set to Kill with Ryan taking is team on to the finals with their 3rd consecutive win!

On the other table, we had the Menhunes vs. Fun & Games trading wins to include a hill/hill match between Lawton Dupio and John Spartichino. In the end, John earned the win. Both shot great! The team win came down to a final sudden death match between Terry Lussier and Paula Patterson. You could feel the excitement in the room as each player got up to shoot. They both played a great game, but in the end Terry earned the win to take Fun & Games on to the finals.

fun and games and set to kill teams

In the finals between Set to Kill and Fun & Games, Howard Dameron and Lee Doerr took the table to compete in a hill/hill match. In the end, it was Lee walking away with the win. The next match came between Joe Bosco and Brian Erle. With both players on top of their game, once again Set to Kill's, Brian Erle takes the match to include an 8-ball break is his list of successes for the weekend. With Set to Kill on the hill for the win, Henry Tyler played Set to Kill's, Ryan Caparida. Both players did well, but in the end it was Ryan and Set to Kill walking away with the victory.

A big thanks goes to ALL of the teams and players who participated, our referees: Doug Coffman, Kelly Seeley and Jeremy Head, and the staff at Mickey's Cues & Brews for once again giving us the royal treatment and their contribution to the tournament.
