For those who love tournament competition, there is an 8-ball tournament at Vinnie's bar on Friday nights, which brings some of the toughest pool players around to play for the cash. This Tournament is open to any player male or female and is played based on BCA rules. The sponsoring bar (Vinnie’s) adds also money to the pot.
RULES OF FRIDAY NIGHT
Rules for Friday BCA 8 Ball Tournament @ Vinnies Bar 2019 The intent of this event is to motivate new and upcoming players to participate, improve, and compete against better players to ultimately excel as a player and enjoy cash prizes alongside the established pool players.
1. Players due to the amount of time taken to find players while others diligently wait their turn to play, if a tournament director calls your game and you are not present by a pool table, you will have 3 minutes before your match is called a forfeit. (It is the players responsibility to be around for their matches called and to be aware where they stand in the tournament brackets)
2. Tournament directors will inform you when you are on deck to play your match so it will be your responsibility to be in the room and ready to play. Please plan bathroom breaks, phone calls, etc accordingly to avoid match delays and forfeits.
Guidelines for Tournament:
1. Established A players will race to 2 against A players.
2. Current A players (average +9: (Jason Williams, George Williams, Jason Miller, Barry Smith, Gary Stevens, Feras Qaddoura, Dustin Baisch, Aldrich Cagaoan, Rich Yoder, Bee Davison, Dave Gomez, Doug Whaley, Jared Williams,)

4. Established B players will race to 2 against other B players in the winners bracket.
5. On the one loss side bracket all players A & B will only race to 1 game.
6. Matches will be alternate breaks. Players will flip for the break. If during a match the score is 1-1 then players will flip for the final game of play.
7. Any player A or B level that wins 1st place prize two weeks in a row MUST take a week off of playing unless it is the end of the month then that player will not be penalized to have an opportunity at the added money saved for the end of the month.
