Sponsor Spotlight; The New Green Room Tournaments By Alishia Hixson

TTMD Billiards Streaming would like to thank The New Green Room Tournaments and Alishia Hixson for all they do for the pool community. They are sponsors of our TTMD Billiards Streaming 10-Ball Open Championship 2021 and we are very thankful for their support.

Alishia and her staff have been doing a fabulous job organizing events to fit many types of play including scotch doubles, 3 person team events, and more. Often there will be a mix of 8-Ball, 9-Ball, and or Fastrack 8-Ball.

The tournaments are well run, and the facility offers 20+ tables to allow for large-scale events with big payouts. The tables are well maintained as The New Green Room Billiards is the home of all the Maryland APA Tournaments and the road to Vegas. Players can enjoy a full bar and excellent pub-style food.

There are thankless hours that go into preparing for and hosting a tournament, that most are not aware of. It isn’t just keeping track of paid entrees or coming up with a fresh event to attract new players that can weigh on a tournament director. Often players evolve over time and their game changes, as a result so do their skill rankings. No matter if it is APA, TAP, FargoRate, or any other ranking system, there are always people that will try to manipulate and take advantage. As with any gathering of competitive athletes, there are interpersonal issues between players, sometimes passions run high and emotions run over. The tournament directors are on the frontlines, trying to maintain a fair event, keeping an eye out for “sandbaggers” and maintaining order, while also keeping things fun and upbeat. The New Green Room Tournament staff, lead by Alishia Hixson, do a fabulous job.

TTMD Billiards Streaming is planning several events with TNGR Tournaments and Alishia for our 2022 schedule.

Without the support of The New Green Room Billiards, TNGR Tournaments, and Alishia Hixson, along with many others, we could not put on an event of this caliber.

Third Place Finish for Kelly Daniel and Vinnie Biondo Sr.

Scotch Doubles Tournament; The New Green Room Billiards hosted by Alishia Hixson

Congratulations to (SP) Kelly Daniel and (VIP) Vinnie Biondo Sr., for battling it out all day after being sent to the B side in their second match.

(VIP) Vince Biondo Sr, (SP) Kelly Daniel

Over the past few days, we have been hearing more of the event and some of the shot-making that took place. From many accounts, there were some wow moments.

For Kelly and Vince, this was their first time as partners, but have often faced off against one another in tournaments.

Kelly admits it was a long day and says it was hard to stay focused and be positive, but they both found a way to pick each other up when they were down. An all-important ingredient for any successful scotch doubles team. (Read more about her experience on her Facebook page)

We are extremely proud of both players for their tenacity and for representing with class.

This is the third week that Kelly has made a strong run and each time a little closer to the top. We are extremely proud of her determination and the hard work she is putting in to improve her game.

TeamTTMD was well represented by (SP) Leroy Taylor, (PR) Kim Smith-Martin, (SP) Mary Watkins, (PR) Michelle Brigerman, (VIP) John Loller, and (VIP) Zach Nantz. Thank you to all of our teammates and VIPS that competed and supported one another even though they may have had to battle against each other.

Here are a few photos from the event courtesy of Kelly Daniel.

Thank you to Alishia Hixson and The New Green Room Billiards for a well ran event.
