OSCAR DOMINGUEZ (USA)
PRO PLAYER

The son of a top gun in professional billiards, Oscar Dominguez has been building his own legend since his first major pro event in 2004.

 

This legacy pro player and lauded pool mechanic’s résumé is strong and storied: Winner of the Turning Stone Classic, runner-up of the deep-field Jay Swanson Memorial, and third on the podium at the Super Billiards Expo, Oscar finished number one in the points race for Team USA’s 2009 Mosconi Cup. That year, Oscar contributed to the decisive eleven-to-seven victory for Team USA—the only American win since 2005.

 

In 2014, he partnered with his then fiancée, Desiree Rivera, to create the Mezz State Tour, cleverly filling the competitive void by mimicking East Coast regional circuits. In February 2016, Oscar won the Jay Swanson Memorial, earning his second Mosconi appearance. Currently, Matchroom’s Nineball World Rankings lists Oscar as second in the USA and thirty-eighth in the world—clinching his Mosconi spot for a third time.

 

When he’s not on tour or on your television, Oscar can be found growing the sport through the Dominguez family owned, premier hall, Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento, California.
