Midwest Billiard Expo Underway

Bob and Eydie Romano celebrate Leonard Bludworth's Birthday

The 2004 Midwest Billiard Expo is underway at the Pheasant Run Resort just outside of Chicago Il.

The players are arriving and the One Pocket & Bank Pool Divisions got underway on Wednesday with top players including Glen Rogers, Grady Mathews, US Open Champion Gabe Owen, Marco Marquez, Cliff Joyner, Shannon Daulton, Earl Strickland and Nick Varner in his first event back after surgery. There are still many divisions to get started including 8-ball and 9-ball for men and women, a seniors division, and a juniors division.

Other parts of the event are a party for AzBilliards forum members and a special birthday party for Leonard Bludworth.

We will have complete coverage of this event, with online brackets for every division and photos from Diana Hoppe who is at the event now. Check out the online brackets for one pocket and bank pool, as well as the first photos from Diana's photo gallery.
