CUP Series Finals Hustlers Aug 14 2019

Special thanks to Graham & Bunny and the wonderful Hustlers staff who went all out to give us a great experience hosting the CUP Finals this week

Thanks also to Yai and Team and Wassana who organised the after-party at Country Road. For those who went, it was a real bonus. 

As for the players and supporters, please give your selves a big pat on the back. Like the whole season the matches, last matches were all played in such great spirit. In every match, we saw each one of you playing also a winner. 

3rd place matches played outside in other venues was something new too. Robert and Jordan reported the same outcome. Great night all round for the napkin and toothpick trophy. 

Thanks, everyone for a great season and congratulations for making it such a wonderful success. 

It's now onward and upward now for a new season from September 2 with a new game plan as "Bangkok Pool Community"  

Next week quite a lot of us are off to Jakarta for the Asia Pool Challenge. Our Bangkok Heat team are ready with months of preparing, to go all out to bring back the CUP.  Quite a few this week were deciding to come to support the team and enjoy the break. The flights are cheap right now and the hotel has rooms if you want to come. Here is Team Shirt. If you want one contact me or Ronny 

Next is our Bangkok Pool Community End of Season Trophy party @Sportsman on Aug 26. Robert Dagger, our chief organiser, has booked John Walker to fly in to be the overall master of ceremonies.

David Dickenson will co-host with John, which we suspect will be a bit like the famous Peter Cook and Dudley Moore duo doing Behind the Fridge 

If you think it's over the top with 2 MC's, Food, Trophies, Happy Hour Prices, Raffles, Door prizes some comedy plus all the frills that Robert Dagger is planning to make it and more fun and worthwhile;  there is more. 

An added bonus will be Lee Shamrock to entertain us for a couple of hours. Lee is always great fun so we know he will make the night remorable.

This event has something for everyone and we want everyone to enjoy it. 

Here are the CUP results. What a fantastic night.

By the way, I sent Pizza mani some pics of the supper order.  This was our WhatsApp exchange. 

[21:08, 14/8/2019] Gordon Wood: Russell we have a supper break in a Cup final here at Hustlers involving 10 teams  As you can see in the pics they are demolishing your pizza's right now 

[21:15, 14/8/2019] Russell: Thanks for the order! Hustlers are the best. Lovely ladies too. Making my pizza look really good. Ha! Might have to take up pool ;).

[21:18, 14/8/2019] Gordon Wood: Can I quote you. Better still, come over if you have a minute.
[21:31, 14/8/2019] Russell : Sounds like an excellent time! I just got home. You boys have fun. Thanks again for the pics. Made my night!

Review Round 13 Positions

Review Wednesday Round 13 

Talk about close encounters of the Third Kind. The liquid in the ladder after the catchup matches this week has put some long shots with the bookies to make the top places wide open.

Take a look at this now to see how all the teams all stand

I wonder if Stephen Speilberg is watching the attempts to get back from a Bermuda triangle.  After Mod sneaked a win on Wednesday, and Moonshine Oldies on Friday that put paid to Hangover chances.

Hustlers United likewise for the Wednesday Red are in the same Bermuda Triangle position. To get out of it they must play the catchup against Day & Night before they play Crazy breakers. Both opponents want the chance to get some runs on the board and are keen to play.

We all know that a team forfeiting denies them any chance to win a trophy. It is simply not fair as is unfairly fielding new players next week. If a team does field anyone who has not played 3 matches by round 11 it will be a pity as they may forfeit their match.

Be aware too that R14 must be played next week and cannot be deferred. So please play your matches.

Team score sheets are on the web so please give them the once over in case there are some issues you might have missed and let me know by Sunday so we can have them fixed. Scores must be checked before going into round 14. That applies to both Monday and Wednesday.

Review Monday Round 13
