Innovative Pool Game Seeking League Operators

POOL300  plans  national expansion over next few weeks.

Dallas, TX, Wednesday, April 27, 2011:  Don Owen, co-founder of OB Cues, inventor and long-time pool enthusiast, introduced POOLl300 to the Dallas/Fort Worth market in 2009, with national expansion kicking off in the coming weeks. Don’s vision for POOL300 is to make league pool play as accessible and fun for players, proprietors, and league operators as league bowling.

POOL300 is a challenging pool game similar to 10-ball that uses standard  billiard equipment. Because just about anyone can succeed at POOL300, it gives the proprietor of any establishment with 2 or more pool tables the opportunity to have dedicated players actively attending weekly league events.

In POOL300, clearing the table without missing gets the shooter a strike. Clearing the table with one miss is a spare. POOL300 is 100% offense. When it’s your turn, you’re shooting for yourself, not directly against another player. Players are handicapped in the same way as bowlers so beginners can compete against accomplished players and still have a chance to win.


At the upcoming BCA tournament in Las Vegas, Don Owen and his team are offering opportunities for League Operators and sponsoring the POOL300 Challenge where selected top professionals will be competing for cash. This event is open to the public to watch.

For more information or to get a league started contact Scott Willoughby at or call 855-TRY-POOL300.
