We are working hard to resolve this, and Tony Annigoni will be contacting all the players directly this week regarding payment.
While we consider the players our top priority, there are a number of stake holders who have been affected, and working out an expedient solution is our top priority, but it will take some time. We will have an update by the end of the week, after we have contacted all the directors and players affected, directly, or by email. Thanks for your patience in this matter, and if you are a director or player who has been affected, please feel free to contact Tony Annigoni directly at 831-277-0216, or email him at Tony at usppa.com USPPA Management © 2010 USPPA, Inc. | Contact: Tony Annigoni at 831-277-0216 | USPPA, Inc. | 2256 N Texas St | Fairfield, CA | 94533-2102 Site Design by The Wecker Group
The pool hall's owner, Tony Annigoni, lost an appeal of a small claims court judgment against him from earlier this year. (Daily Republic file 2009)
Behind the eight ball was a legendary player Tony Annigoni, a managing partner of the U.S. Pool Players Association and the owner of the Two Cushion Club pool hall on North Texas Street. "The game of billiards has destroyed my naturally sweet disposition. - Mark Twain Annigoni was appealing a small claims court judgment awarded to Michael J. Gregory back in March. Gregory, who has been putting cue stick to cue ball for more than 20 years, got to make the first shot in the court hearing. He said he had spent four days in Reno in the Pacific Rim International Expo back in 2010 competing against more than 100 pool players. Gregory played a video clip of himself, Annigoni and the second-place finisher at the awards ceremony at the Peppermill Resort in which Annigoni told Gregory the $5,000 check would be put in the mail Friday. Having won the tournament twice before, in 2001 and 2006, he had no idea the winnings would be elusive. A week passed, then a month. "After eight months I lost faith in Mr. Annigoni," Gregory told Mattice. Annigoni got his turn. He looked over at Gregory and took his best shot - a hard smack. "He cheated," Annigoni said. Annigoni then gave Mattice a primer on billiards challengers who agree to throw a game with one of them winning and the other agreeing to take a dive. "Immediately after the event it was brought to our attention that collusion had been going on which is specifically against association rules and the rules of conduct for all tournament events," Annigoni said.

Tony Annigoni The United States Pool Players Association Tony Annigoni, President of The USPPA and Principal in Two Cushion Club which will manage the event dubbed The Pacific Rim International Billiard Expo explains, "We thank the Sands Regency for all its support over the years, however, the future for our association, and in some ways billiards in America, is with The Peppermill. With a new home and more space, the event menu is expanding. While the Reno Open and USPPA Pro Am will once again be the mainstays, the word International is not merely a title. "Working with The WPA in 2008 to host the World Juniors and World Wheel Chair tournaments reinforced for me how international the game is and, in some ways, how billiards internationally is in much better shape than in the States. Annigoni continued. "I was looking for a venue and added formats that would enhance the International presence as well as deliver a playing format that would give American players, who I still feel are the best in the world, 'For the Cash' a chance to shine. To that end, we've added a new event, The Simonis Tour Championship which will run conjunctively with the Reno Open. And as an incentive to encourage participation, we're also adding the Two Cushion Club Poker Challenge. The Peppermill Resort Spa Casino features 1,635 luxurious rooms and suites, two resort pools, 10 award-winning restaurants, 16 themed bars and lounges including EDGE nightspot and Terrace Lounge, free nightly entertainment in the Casino Cabaret, 24/7 gaming action, headliner entertainment as well as the 43,000 square foot Spa & Salon Toscana and Fitness Center featuring northern Nevada's only Caldarium with indoor pool, sun deck and Secret Garden.
