Simonis Sponsors Blair Thein in Pool, Poker and Pain
Simonis, one of the billiard industry’s oldest companies and makers of pool and billiards cloth, has struck an arrangement to be an initial sponsor of Pool, Poker and Pain, the extreme challenge series being promoted by Blair Thein. Under development for nearly four years and rapidly gaining interest from key players in the extreme sports world, the Pool, Poker and Pain challenge provides a stage where contenders will have to balance mental and physical toughness with finesse and strategy in order to be victorious.
“Blair Thein has a vision about combining these sports and his dedication is without equal,” stated Ivan Lee, the president of Iwan Simonis Incorporated. “He brings a real passion to what he is pursuing and he has made a very positive impression on me as an individual. I decided to sponsor his event to push the boundaries of pool as a universal game of nerves and skill and to see how it fares as one of the three disciplines combined to provide a new kind of entertainment and interest in our sport.”
“I am very happy to have the prestigious Simonis Company on board,” said Blair Thein, the creator of Pool, Poker, and Pain. “As one of the best-known companies in the billiard industry, it was great to find that they are interested in my project. I think that this is the support that I needed to get Pool, Poker and Pain into the national spotlight.”
