The place

The place

#5 of The First 5 of the One Pocket Series

Derby City Classic. The ultimate One Pocket stage. It’s the place where legends arise. It’s the place where history is being written. It’s the place where the most sensational action takes place. It’s the place where players get broken down mentally. It’s the place where players are being made. It’s the place where the best hustlers, gamblers, and professionals come together to show their pool and gambling greatness for 10 days straight, 24 hours per day. It’s the place where dominance dominates. It’s the place where mental endurance is pushed to the limit. It’s the place where tiredness is an emotion that has to be shut down to survive. It’s the place where tension is the air you breath. It’s the place where One Pocket dominates.

It’s THE place.

Project One Pocket

Project One Pocket is a project in which I advocate One Pocket and try to inspire others, in the Netherlands and eventually in the rest of Europe as well, to start playing One Pocket, to share knowledge and ideas about the game and to set up more One Pocket tournaments across the continent. The One Pocket Series, a Dutch One Pocket tour, came forth from this project.

About Pepijn de Wit

I’m an adventurous 30-year-old from the Netherlands. I started playing pool as a nine-year-old standing on an empty Coca-Cola crate to be able to reach the cue ball and grew out to a hobbyist with 15 national titles on his name. Now, I consider myself a one pocket enthusiast and push for one pocket to electrify the Netherlands and Europe. I therefore started the One Pocket Series, a national tour to promote the game. Next to that, I've studied cultural anthropology, I currently work at a casino, and truly love the outdoors. My ambitions are big, my dreams even bigger.
