Dr. Cue Artistic Cup VII

  Dr. Cue Artistic Cup VII, Q & Cue Characters “Roll To Victory” Classic Challenge, & Dr. Cue Artistic Pool Lag Challenge In Record Books!!

 

CHAMPION  Marty “The Farmer” Carey (CA)

   The 2013 Dr. Cue Classic “Artistic” Cup VII has etched its signature mark in billiard history once again.  14 of the world’s greatest Artistic Pool Playing Artists participated in this unique “Artistic Pool” Professional Challenge at Pockets in Lake City, FL from December 12th to December 15th.  Marty “The Farmer” Carey from California raced to the “artistic” victory circle with a slim 1 point winning margin – taking home the first place guaranteed prize money, a beautiful “Victory” Cup trophy, and title honors!  Marty displayed great poise and determined focus during his champion title pursuit and now joins the ranks of other Dr. Cue Classic Cup Champions since 2008. 

      This special event of the Dr. Cue Classic Artistic Pool “Sport & Show” Tour showcased some of the greatest Artistic Pool players under the WPA / APTSA sport umbrella. In addition, select players from Artistic Pool league tour stops held in 2013 at respective National and / or International events of the BCAPL, VNEA, ACS, and APA, plus several “at large” entries participated. 

      Competitors played side by side in special 3 / 4 person – player groupings with 9-foot Gandy tables and high percentage make rate shots.  Guaranteed payout values and a rather large player / audience prize fund produced player and fan friendly opportunities in a reunion style billiard atmosphere. 

      The APPA (Artistic Pool Playing Artists) crusader force showcased a “class” act of billiard skills from each of the 8 magnetic disciplines of “artistic pool” – 1) Trick / Fancy Shots, 2) Special Arts, 3) Draw Shots, 4) Follow Shots, 5) Bank / Kick Shots, 6) Stroke Shots, 7) Jump Shots, and 8) Masse Shots.  When the program of 40 “classic” shots / challenges were finished by the competitors a special awards ceremony honored the Overall event champion, eight Discipline champions, and two Sportsmanship recipients. 

      In addition to the Cup VII event, the Q & Cue Characters “Roll To Victory” Classic Challenge took place in very unique “pool ball rolling” challenge – done without the aid of a cue stick.  The novel Dr. Cue Artistic Pool Lag Challenge also accented the Cup VII activities over the 4-day period. On Saturday night the magnetic finals for both of these attractive events took place for those that had qualified from the initial rounds.  Jason Lynch won the former challenge with Mark Dimick winning the latter.
