Songkran End of Season Party Welcomes Challenge Season Start

End of Season Presentation Party


This week, on Monday, Aug 26, it was party time for our Bangkok Pool Community End of Season Presentations Gordon Wood kicked it off with a welcome to our new and old friends then Johnny Walker and David Dickenson took front and centre spot to lead proceedings with comedian Tristan Bortly for some humour to start us off.


Here are some of the photos in a Library Album our website- Please upload and good ones you took

Over the years we have held this event at Hideaway, Crazy Hot, Pickled Liver, Dubliner, Moonshine, Hangout, Mexican, Breakers, Sportsman, Club 15, Country Road. and this season again at Sportsman Live lounge.


Around 300 individuals each week cause traffic jams heading to and from 20 or so venues for the season to win or lose a few hundred matches. We all play over 12000 racks and consume around 12-14000 drinks as we walk about 1000 km each around the tables.


To celebrate all that, this time we tried something different from our normal fun, with food drinks and dancing. Adding the comedy and Lee Shamrock to keep us entertained late into the night made it even more fun. We also managed to fit in the presentations of 20 Trophies and 200 medals and took time out for a charity fundraiser for the grieving family of Sanya Sayavong.

Charity Fund Raiser

Sanya was our much loved young and vibrant protege in our community who tragically died last Saturday, Aug 24, 2019. The generous donations from so many of our host venues during the proceeding enabled us to raise 41K in a charity auction and raffle This adds to the 90K already collected in a support fund organized by Jay Tiparat Uppasuk at Breakers and an event she ran at breakers on Thursday that saw that grow to over 200K

Asia Pool Challenge - Jakarta August 21-24 2019


With planning for next year already well underway, it seems aeons since the Jakarta 2019 Asia Pool Challenge last week.

Congratulations to Jakarta All-Stars who won by 1 frame with total 102. Bangkok Heat and Singapore Stingers finished equal second with 101 frames. Bangkok was first in the head to head, and our Rauri Mccarroll won the Super Singles.

For the supporters who went and many more at home watching the live streams, we all saw the fabulous results of 6 months of practice, qualifying and selections. That had produced a totally focussed and cohesive team that enjoyed playing and supporting each other unconditionally. With the overall aim to make us all proud, we were wonderfully represented to win regardless of the outcome.

Congratulations Bangkok Heat for a great result and being such great ambassadors for Bangkok.

The Bangkok Pool Community especially want to thank our sponsors for their added support for APC BHQ Effort. Sportsman Restaurant & Bar, Hustlers Sports & Pool, Thailand Pool Tables, Pizza Mania, Life PartnersThailand, Mexcian and others made it all possible financially.

The Bangkok Pool Community is very proud to be the founding supporter of Bangkok Heat Qualifying series coordinating and planning team who select the final team and go it all organised to go.

Gluttons for more, the 10th Anniversary, will see the event return to Bangkok next year in August 2020 with Bangkok Pool Community hosting. Nine countries will compete, including Japan for the first time.

Watch this space for what we hope is the best ever in 2020.

You can access the TV Table videos of our matches via our Cuesportslive.asia site. We have that set up to stream and store any matches that matter. 

For more information about Bangkok Heat, go to Bangkok Heat Group in facebook run by Ronny Jacobsen. That has loads of information and pictures.
