Rated E for Everyone.
Once upon a time as a teenager I saw a pool table and that planted a deep rooted interest. I remember going into pool rooms but was NEVER invited to join in and take a lesson or anything. Not welcome was the norm. Over the years my parents put in a pool table and I owned them in my homes as an adult. I bought a book and would practice some, but never was aware of any organization or better players. I was in little league baseball, football, bowling, guitar lessons, 4-H, but never even heard of organized pool. WHY?
In 1985 I was asked if I played in a pool league. "That was the moment." The ahha moment and. What did you say? There was a serious pool world, but all underground. Not public. Why? That seed saw the sun and stated growing into an uncontrollable passion to this day.  The door was opened. 
Then joining my first pool league, making room at my house for a new pool table, buying my first McDermott cue and case and searching out an instructor (Babe Thompson) was a top priority. 
After a couple of short years of extreme study and practice, my playing enjoyment  passion turned to seeing the organization problems and opportunities grew into a business of organizing and making products more than playing.
Leagues of 4 or 5 games a week and tournaments of 2-3 matches before elimination were hard to satisfy playing interest. I kept practicing. A family and job kept pool competition to a minimum.
The next turning point was after getting good enough to make it 4-5 matches before elimination in blind draw brackets at the Golden 8-Ball, now "oh man"  it took 4-5 hours to play in a tournament. A real deal breaker. 11 pm was too late for pool. 4 matches in 3-4 hours, mostly waiting. There has to be a better way to play more pool and enjoy this great colorful activity without all the unnecessary restrictions.  
Here we are today...

All the players in an event are ranked by games won until the closing date. Challenge the registered players in your event or challenge and introduce new players into the event. There is a performance rating and a handicap to keep the matches fair and allows you to track your true performance. This is the only pool competition where you can play when you want and as much as you want. Every game you play accumulates into more and more benefits and a lifetime of statistical records.

Each event is 150%+ payback with random and various performance rewards in cues, cases, chalk and many fine name brand products from our sponsors: Diamond Billiards, Sneaky Pete Mafia, Inside Pool Magazine, JB Cases, Balabushka Performance Chalk, Simonis Cloth, Aramith Billiard Balls, Prather Cues, OB Custom Cues, Euro Pocket Chalker, Monster Break Billiards, Cue-Z ctc and Discount Cues and more to come.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
