Just a couple of days left to get your picks in for the WPBA Borderline Billiards Pick’em. We’re leaving registration open until the evening of 7/9/09, so if you haven’t done so already, go ahead and make your picks.
Also, we just realized that the WPBA US Open is just around the corner, so we’ve launched our US Open Pick’em as well. If you’ve played the other pick’em games, you know the drill. Just log in, make your picks and you’re good to go. If you’re new to the game, just fill out the easy registration form and pick away.
Still haven’t registered for the free pick’em at Borderline Billiards? Stop slacking and get it done! Its free and registration is a bit lighter for this event, so you’ve got a great shot to win some free Dawg Dough!
The WPBA will be streaming this entire event live for free, so be sure to tune in, watch some great pool and join the other railbirds in the chat.
Here are a few of the places you can find the free stream:
As for who’s playing, the favorites have to be Allison Fisher and Kelly Fisher, but look for Frank’s temporary handler Sarah Rousey to make a strong appearance too. The following is the up to date roster. There’s still one spot to be filled, so if you’re interested, email Anne Craig at anne [at] wpba.com and she’ll give you the details.

We’ll be officially announcing this tomorrow, but our blog readers get to hear it first. Since the turnout was so strong for the first WPBA pick’em event, we’ve decided to do another one before the WPBA US Open. With that, we’re pleased to announce that PoolDawg’s WPBA at Borderline Pick’em is now open!
For those who haven’t heard, the WPBA is putting on a satellite event which is open to WPBA players as well as regional players who haven’t made it on the tour yet. This event will be held July 10th through July 12th at Borderline Billiards in Bristol Tenessee. In addition to WPBA regulars like Allison Fisher, Kelly Fisher, Gerda Hofstatter, Karen Corr and Frank’s favorite temporary handler Sarah Rousey, you’ll also see the likes of up and comers like Rachel Eliazar, Briana Miller and most of the team that won the 2009 BCA Team Championships including Gail Glazebrook, Borana Andoni, Emily Duddy and Olga Gashkova.
Same rules as before. You pick who you think will finish in the Top 8. Points are awarded starting at 160 points for first place, 150 for second place all the way down to 10 points for 16th place. The picker with the most points wins. Just like last time, we’ll be giving out gift certificates to the Top 5 pickers:
1st Place: $100 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
2nd Place: $50 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
3rd Place: $25 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
4th Place: $10 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
5th Place: $10 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
Picks have to be in by midnight on 7/9/09. The game is now open, so head over and make your picks. If you played last time, just log in with your existing credentials and pick away.
