Accu-Stats 8-Ball Invitational
YOU can “Make It Happen”
Hi,
This link introduces you to Accu-Stats’ “Make it Happen” event, a Professional Tournament in the discipline of 8-Ball. Accu-Stats loves 8-Ball as evidenced by its very successful 2001 8-Ball Invitational.
It’s now eleven years later, and there are still no plans by any major promoter or sponsor to bring 8-Ball to the viewers.
That is where YOU come in.
Accu-Stats needs your support to “Make It Happen”. The 8-Ball Invitational will be held August 9-12, 2012 at the Accu-Stats Studio in Sandcastle Billiards, Edison, New Jersey, the new home of the Simonis Arena. The value of staging the event there is the TREMENDOUS savings on production costs.
YOU can “Make It Happen”. I am NOT asking for donations or sponsorships. What I am offering is a bundle of products and services with a retail value in excess of $450.00 at a special “Prepaid” price of $300.00.
Accu-Stats has always tried to be innovative and has ALWAYS put our customers first in product value and customer service.
Have I piqued your interest? If so, please continue for the “details” of this special offer.

An Accu-Stats “Make It Happen” Event

Six Players: Accu-Stats will invite six pro players as indicated by the total of YOUR votes. (More on this vote later) Inviting the top six players will guarantee that each match will be of “Finals” caliber.

The Format: 8-Ball – Round Robin – Each player will play five matches (one each against the other players)

Each Match: Race to 8 games – Alternate break – Arena shot clock

Prize Breakdown: The winner of each match will receive $1,000.00. Based on the total of 15 matches being played, the total prize fund will be $15,000.00

The invited players will incur no entry fee and Accu-Stats will pay for their travel and lodging expenses.

Accu-Stats will hire the professional production crew and be responsible for all of the associated production expenses.

That is the basis of the event. Now let me explain the two IMPORTANT points – your $300.00 and your VOTE.
What will you receive for your $300.00?
I know that would be MY biggest question. So here is what you will receive:
1)
All 15 DVD’s from this event (16 DVD’s if there is a playoff match)
2)
The 8-Ball Exhibition DVD between Brandon Shuff and Rodney Morris from the 2012 Derby City Classic (even if you change your mind)
3)
One “Live Pay-Per-View” Internet pass for the four day event OR if you attend the event, one VIP seat with a headset to listen to the commentary
4)
One Book: “Play Your Best 8-Ball” by Phil Capelle
5)
One 8 x 10 group photo of the six contestants, autographed by all, and thanking you for your support (a collector’s item)
6)
One “Shout Out” on air and listing in the closing credits of each DVD.
7)
One “I Made It Happen” top quality cotton T-shirt displaying the event, date, and the tournament contestants.
8)
And FINALLY – the VOTE. YOU vote for up to six players you wish to be in this event. We will tally all the votes and the six “Most Wanted” will be invited to compete in the round robin format.
Still interested? I sincerely hope so. Read on.

The Details
To be quite frank there is not enough industry support for events like this. It is imperative that YOU “Make It Happen”.
Accu-Stats needs at least 100 supporters to participate with a $300.00 package that I feel is worth much, much more.
A credit card or check is needed as a commitment, but the payment will NOT be processed until June 1, 2012. This is the date which confirms that the tournament will happen. You may also withdraw your support prior to that June 1 deadline.
If we do not reach our participation goal your check will be returned and no credit card charges will be processed.
I am very excited, and I hope I have conveyed that enthusiasm to you. Thank you for your time and support of pool and Accu-Stats.
Still interested? Want to know more? Have any questions? Please call me, Pat Fleming, at 800-828-0397. It would be nice to touch base with you personally.
Regards,
Pat Fleming

As long as this is played on a 9' table, I'm interested.

Allow 3 or 4 votes for the player of choice. In the event player 1...player 2....decline for whatever reason. That way you can likely still cast a vote that gets your player.

Like so...

First choice - Allison
Second choice - Efren
Third...
Fourth...

I spoke with Pat and signed up.

8 ball is my game of choice and nothing better than to see it played at world class level.

Here is a scan of a letter from Pat with a list of 34 players to vote on.

All matches will be played in the ARENA on the 9 ft DIAMOND. Pat is making DVD's of all the matches so it is obvious it will be all in the ARENA !

Hence the field of 6 players. If there were 16 players it would take a month and the expenses would not be within reach of the plan Pat has set forth.

Will any of the 15 DVDs from the event be player review DVDs? I particularly enjoy the accu-stats player review DVDs, and I don't know that accu-stats has ever done a player review DVD for 8-ball.

Who's going to be doing the commentary?

Just left a message for Pat, I'm in FOR SURE. Great concept, great venue, PLUS you get all the matches on high quality DVD's. Go back to YouTube and watch some 8-ball tournament matches. This is one of the best games to watch these guys play, IMHO. In my book, only second to one-pocket, which would be difficult or impossible in this round-robin format (I think ~ didn't think about that very long).
