A local pool team is set to head to the World Pool Championships in Las Vegas after advancing to the finals at the recent Hudson Valley APA tournament in Albany. The AJ Cafe based team 'R U Freakin' Kidding Me' will have a chance to bring home $25,000 if they go all the way.

The Hudson Valley APA was founded in the Hudson Valley in 1991 and serves Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester counties according to their website. The Albany tournament started with 111 teams and eventually got down to seven via single elimination. Each of those teams will be heading off to Sin City to vie for the championship and the cash.

The Las Vegas tournament is happening August 14th through the 20th. If you'd like to get involved in a local pool league, more info can be found HERE.

You may remember the AJ Cafe crew from Hudson Valley Wing Wars earlier this year. They took home the awards for 'Hottest' and 'Best Buffalo' at the 2017 edition.
