Table Talk – Oct 8, 2014

April Larson shows why she is a champion, not only because of her pool knowledge and execution, but because she is a smart, charming, mature and very personable young lady.

April is getting ready to compete in the World Junior Championships in Shanghai.  The US players get no help for their expenses except from donations to the Billiard Education Foundation and the Black Widow Foundation.  If you would like to help offset their expenses please make a donation today.

Table Talk – Sept 17, 2014

Host Jay Wegener shares the microphone with special guest host Michael Perron Jr.  Michael was a 13 year old phenom that has had 8 years of playing all the strong players in Minnesota and surrounding states.  He’s played and won against the best (SVB) and played and lost against the best (SVB).  He helped create the higher dollar challenge matches in the Twin Cities by challenging and playing the local great players and helped bring back interest in the game.  He touches on the life of a 14 y.o. that was in action for large amounts.  Michael also gives his views on a variety of issues.

Thank you Michael for stepping into the box with me just like you do against most roadies passing through.
