Are we glad to be back? You bet your life we are!

Nine days in the world’s greatest tournament as 500+ of the world’s greatest competitors vie for serious prize money – and then some…if you know what I mean: nudge, nudge, wink wink.

And guess who snuck up to surprise us all? Mr. Retirement (yeah, right): The G.O.A.T: Efren Reyes is in the Arena. And competing in the Bank Pool, One Pocket, and 9-Ball disciplines where points are awarded towards becoming Master of the Table; the 5-time title Reyes has captured more than any other mortal.

The Derby’s 4th event, the Diamond Big Foot 10-Ball Challenge gets the balls rolling today.

Here, Jayson Shaw is the man to beat. As a 3-time BIG Foot titlist, compounded by his recent courageous conquests, he is currently without peer.

Last weekend, Jayson shattered the 626 ball Straight Pool record that took years to be masterfully achieved by Mr. John Schmidt.

With true dedication and discipline, Jayson ran 714…after five tireless days of attempts : An extraordinary feat. With his effortless, raw power and unwavering “Eagle Eye,” it’s predicted that he’s not done; he will run a 1000.

But wait, there’s more: The weekend before that in the Turning Stone 9-Ball event, Shaw fought back from 0-5 against the mighty Earl to win 9-8. He was also deep in the hole against the much improved Kuwaiti, Abdullah Al Youssef to overcome in another nerve-racking hill-hill, encounter.

Then, finally, Fedor Gorst had him down 9-3 whom Shaw soon crushed before allowing Fedor only one more game to succeed at 13-10. And, secure his 7th record-breaking title.

More than records may be broken: Spirits, dreams, shafts, No wait; not shafts, most are using carbon fiber.
