TAR33 | Francisco Bustamante vs Alex Pagulayan
Holy crap, it seems like we *just* finished a TAR match, right?
TAR33 will be all-around consisting of 8-ball race to 20, one pocket race to 8, and 10-ball race to 27. This will be the first all-around match on the new 4-1/2″ pockets. That should make the one pocket interesting.

If you are not able to watch the stream, I will provide periodic updates when I get there on the weekend.
…and don’t forget…
TAR34 | Efren Reyes vs Shane Van Boening
…takes place the week after! Same format as TAR33 except for the one pocket, which is a race to 11.
April is the poolest month!
