Association of Billiard Professionals (ABP): It's All About Billiards and the Pool Players!

Association of Billiard Professionals GraphicThe top three billiard managers in the Pool Capital of the World have joined forces with the Association of Billiard Professionals (ABP)! The stars of Puyat Sports, Negros Billiard Stable, and Bugsy Promotions, i.e., Efren Bata Reyes, Francisco Django Bustamante, Dennis Orcollo, Alex Pagulayan, Lee Vann Corteza, Warren Kiamco, Jundel Mazon, Antonio Lining, Roberto Gomez, and Carlo Biado, are now members of the ABP.

The ABP welcomes the stars of the Pool Capital of the World to help join the ideals and beliefs of the ABP to help change the sport of billiards for generations to come. The ABP is excited and thrilled to have an international representation to help in the initiative to improve the sport of billiards – a sport that we all love - in conjunction with promoters, sponsors, and associations. With a worldwide representation and support, the ABP is an organization of professional pool players that can have a powerful voice in helping changes for the better.

The ABP represents the world’s best billiard players who are uniting for a common goal. Over the years, players have endured many hardships and have found it necessary to try to reach common ground between the promoters of events, international associations, and the professional players. Without a voice, players have not been able to adequately communicate and work with promoters and other industry entities. Promoters and associations likewise have been lacking in instruction and guidance from the pro players.

For those not in the know, some events and associations have not been able to protect players from issues ranging from prize money payments, equipment issues and conditions, and rules/format. As the saying goes, “There is strength in numbers”, and this has led to the formation of the ABP.

The ABP is led by some notable names, e.g., Johnny Archer, Mika Immonen, and Rodney Morris, in a committee of top players unified under a common purpose: To elevate the sport of pocket billiards and to protect and to assist in the well being of every player. The ABP is an association for the players and by the players. The players now have a united voice to help bring resolutions to seemingly never ending issues facing the industry.

The ABP, with your help, can bring about a positive change in a fair and appropriate manner. From standardizing equipment, rules, and creating systems to insure the payment of prize money so the players can get paid and in a timely fashion. The ABP is for unification. The ABP is for change. The ABP is for the sport. The ABP is for the players. And I kid you not!

ABP Board of Directors

• Johnny Archer- Atlanta, GA
• Mika Immonen- Helsinki, Finland
• Rodney Morris- Honolulu, HI
• Shane Van Boening- Sioux Falls, SD
• Thorsten Hohmann- Fulda, Germany
• Mike Davis - Tampa, FL
• Stevie Moore - Columbia, SC
• Oscar Dominguez - Los Angeles, CA
• Shawn Putnam- Atlanta, GA
• Charlie Williams - Orlando, FL
• John Schmidt - Wheeling, WV

Annual membership is $100 to join the ABP. This membership fee is separated into a fund that will be used to pay all the expenses acquired for creating and maintaining a players association. The ABP is a non-profit group where the ABP’s 11 board members are volunteering their time and effort to help change the sport for the better.

Shelf Corporation World GraphicBeing stuck in the house for a number of days now, I decided to browse the Internet computer network to learn more about shelf corporations, shelf corporations for sale, and shelf corporations with credit. After a few seconds of tweaking my online search tools, I managed to get good results on what makes aged corporations popular these days.

My results highlighted sites on aged corporations, e.g., those pertaining to aged corporations for sale, aged shelf corporations, and the cheapest shelf corporations on the market. One website stood out among the pack – Shelf Corporation World.

A quick browse of Shelf Corporation World reveals that it sells aged corporations – companies that already come with a number of years in business. This is a great benefit to buyers because it gives buyers instant credibility and business credit. In comparison to incorporating a new business unit from square one, aged corporations are touted as a much better option for business-minded people like you and me. Moreover, aged corporations offer buyers asset protection and financing opportunities that cannot be found with startups or newly-incorporated businesses.

All in all, I am pleased with what I have learned with regard to shelf corporations, shelf corporations for sale, and shelf corporations with credit, with emphasis on Shelf Corporation World.

Carlo Biado's Run in the World Ten Ball Championship!

Carlo Biado GraphicOur very own, Carlo Biado, lost to Fu Jianbo of China, 5-9, in the LIVE semi-finals match of the 2011 World Ten Ball Championship held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

According to the rising star from Bugsy Promotions (managed by Mr. and Mrs. Perry and Verna Mariano), he was not able to sleep from excitement – and stayed awake the night before the much-anticipated semi-finals match thinking how he should play given the competition and the sheer magnitude of it all.

Biado accepted the fact that he was quite nervous before that semi-finals match – and understandably so! For those not in the know, this is the farthest that the 27-year-old pool player from La Union has realized in a world championship event! But amidst the nervousness and all, Biado summoned strength, might, and will to play his game on the TV table - relinquishing the anonymity that he enjoyed the previous days at the pool tables in the elimination area as he gunned down champion after champion after champion.

LIVE! With all the lights and cameras focused on him for the millions of fans from the world over to see! Truth be told, this is what it is all about! From the moment that the semi-finals started, Biado was no longer one of the rising stars from the Pool Capital of the World! He is now a semi-finalist for one of the sports’ most-coveted titles!

Indeed, fans were silent as Fu stacked 8 racks against Biado’s 1 in their semi-finals match! Fu was ready and all to deliver the final blow at the start of the 10th rack when he scratched off the break! On the brink of defeat, Biado found himself with the gargantuan task of pulling one huge upset! Two choices, i.e., it’s either a come-from-behind victory from his opponent sitting comfortably on the hill or nothing.

In a never-say-die fashion, and to the delight of the Filipino audience and all, Biado strung four straight racks with his Predator cue! From 8-1, the score was now 8-5! Just four more and all is a go! Everyone held their breath! You could literally feel the Filipino crowd wanting Biado to win! 'Twas electrifying! And I kid you not!

However, ‘twas not meant to be. In the 14th rack, the former caddie-turned pool player had an unforced error, i.e., a miscalculated preparation for the 5-ball after the cue ball bump into the 9 and 6. The protagonists then battled it out with safeties – with Fu getting the better of the exchanges and having the 5-ball out in the open. The Chinese pool player sank the 5-ball, but missed a straight-in shot on the green 6! But there was no clear shot on the 6-ball, though. Biado was then forced to make a bank shot, which left the table open again for Fu, who cleaned up table for the win.

Carlo Biado, the never-say-die pool player from Bugsy Promotions, netted the biggest finish and paycheck of his career – a semi-finals showing at the 2011 World Ten Ball Championship and US$15,000. Congratulations on your impressive run, Carlo! Mabuhay!

"The AnitoKid, the smart choice!"

Aged Corporations for Sale

Wholesale Shelf Corporations GraphicOne of my billiards buddies, James Andrew Molato, is looking for Shelf Corporations, i.e., Shelf Corporations for Sale or Shelf Corporations with Credit. You see, James knows the advantages of utilizing shelf corporations, also known as Aged Corporations, which come with several years in business and give instant credibility, reputation, history, and business credit to the buyer.

World Ten Ball Championship Finals! Match Schedule of the FInal Four!

Carlo Biado GraphicCarlo Biado - Bugsy Promotions

A Filipino, a Chinese, a Japanese, and a European will battle it out for one of billiards’ most coveted titles, the World Ten Ball Championship, today at the World Trade Center in Pasay City!

The three Asian players who have made it to the Final Four are Carlo Biado of the Philippines, Fu Jianbo of China, and Yukio Akakariyama of Japan. Huidji See of the Netherlands is the lone representative of Europe, which has won the first two stagings of the tournament following wins by Darren Appleton of Great Britain in 2008 and Mika Immonen of Finland in 2009.

The 27-year-old Biado, who plays for Bugsy Promotions, continues to surprise everyone with his superb position play and excellent pocketing skills. Yesterday, he brought the house down on three world champions, i.e., compatriot Ronnie Alcano (Negros Billiards Stable and JSY Sports) in the last 32, Daryl Peach in the last 16, and Dennis Orcollo (Bugsy Promotions) in the quarterfinals.

Biado’s hard work these past few months has helped catapult him to where he is now. He kept himself in shape and logged extra minutes working on his breaks, one of the most important shots in billiards. The Filipino pool player played at least 50 racks, 3x a week, working on his breaks. Moreover, he kept himself in good condition by resting early – knowing that one needs good conditioning for the long stretch in a championship tour.

One of Biado’s memorable matches in the 2011 World Ten Ball Championship was his win over compatriot Orcollo. Orcollo came off an exciting, but exhausting, hill-hill match over Wu Jia Qing, the pool player formerly known as Wu Chia Ching, of China. Against Biado, Orcollo appeared to have lost the energy needed in making the push for the finals.

Orcollo, aka The Robocop, fell behind, 2-8, in the match, and found himself on the brink of elimination against the more energetic Biado. The Robocop tried his darndest best for a come back – but ‘twas not to be! The closest that Asia's Money Game King could get to Biado was four racks at 8-4! And I kid you not! In the 13th rack, Orcollo left an opening for Biado at the end of their exchange of safety shots, which was more than enough for Biado to sink the yellow 1-ball. And when there were only three balls left on the table - scattered and all near the pockets - Orcollo conceded, signalling Biado’s entry into the semi-finals.

All four pool players competing in the semifinals of the 2011 World Ten Ball Championship are assured of at least $15,000. The champion of the World Pool-Billiard Association-sanctioned event will get the lion’s share of $60,000 from the total prize fund of $250,000. The runner-up will get $30,000.

Will the World Ten Ball crown remain in Europe’s possession or will the championship head east and go to Asia for the first time after three stagings? Find out, today, May 15, 2011, in the Pool Capital of the World! Watch it live as the Final Four battle it out for the glory!

Last Day Match Schedule

9:00 AM - 1st Semifinals (taped)
Yukio Akakariyama vs. Huidji See

12:00 PM - 2nd Semifinals (LIVE)
Carlo Biado vs. Fu Jianbo

Sleeping Bags and Beddings: Kathmandu Is A One-Stop Shop!

Sleeping Bags GraphicA billiards buddy in Australia asked me to help him search the Internet for sites on Sleeping Bags and beddings for his upcoming trip in the winter of 2012. Always ready to lend a helping hand, I armed my online search tools and quickly found Kathmandu – an online site that would make any hiker, camper, or traveler go goo-goo and ga-ga over the cool Sleeping Bags and beddings it offers.

Kathmandu features countless products and a large inventory that would allow anyone, and everyone, to match their sleeping bags and beddings requirements with their respective travel needs. These include synthetic sleeping bags, which maintain their warmth when wet and dry faster; down sleeping bags, which are lighter yet offer a higher warmth-to-weight ratio and compress into smaller shapes; inflating mats, which highlight an extra layer that provides that much-needed comfort and insulation; etc.

But wait! There’s more! Kathmandu’s sleeping bags also come in different shapes and sizes, e.g., rectangular bags and mummy bags. Truth be told, the shape of one’s sleeping bag makes one huge difference in terms of space and heat requirements!

Kathmandu’s ton of products is a definite plus to travelers wanting to live the dream! Indeed, it is a one-stop shop for Sleeping Bags! No ifs! No buts! With Kathmandu, I am a happy camper! And I kid you not!
