Thorsten Hohmann is the man to watch as he cruised undefeated in the first night action of the 20 match, Double Round Robin format event. Late last night, Thorsten ran 60 and out against Ralf Souquet's hard fought 34. Thorsten then continued his charge in search of high run bonus monies but came to a screeching halt at 149 as, on the break shot, his cue ball got buried in the rack. One more point and he would have made a $1,000. With many "Century" plus runs in his history, the odds are, he will before the weekend is out. The new, 60 points with a twist, straight pool formula developed by Accu-Stats' Pat Fleming had audiences, both in the Arena and on the internet, on the edge of their seats. Every shot counted, Once a player gets to the table he's capable of a runout. At 60, he wins the match. Then, he has the opportunity to run to a 100--and secure a $500 bonus prize. Or, $1,000 if he gets to 150. This makes for very aggressive play. Safeties aren't in the mix as combatants have their eyes on the big run and the possible bonus money.
Johnny Archer, Ralf Souquet, John Schmidt, Jose Parica, and Thorsten Hohmann, will play each other twice though, all are motivated by the high run as they will contribute to a "Player Review" where they narrate their own DVD, in addition to the 10 DVD set the series will generate.
