I think there are two sponsors, joy and star, with each holding similar comps. I think the snooker players etc play in the other one.

Star provide tables for World Snooker, so there is probably some deal there!

yes that sounds about right although I believe Joy has (had?) Stephen Hendry for a while

also don't seem to see any other big Chinese 8 Ball tourneys on the horizon

I thought they did too, but don't see his name on the list.

To be fair he never took it seriously anyway, which is a shame, it would have been interesting to see how he'd cope if he really wanted it.

It's also a shame there aren't more tournaments, I think they are great to watch (well there probably are, we just don't get to hear about them)!

Nothing demonstrates the poverty of American cueing better than Chinese 8 ball.
I says on that site for the event that he actually got a chinese 8-ball table at his place in SD, if he is actually focusing on the game and practicing on the actual equipment he might surprise some people. While I doubt he will be the next Potts he might be competitive against most.

It will improve his fundamentals, for sure.

The lack of info is somewhat strange. They have sponsored Stephen Hendry, Gareth Potts and now SVB, invited many other 'foreign' players to play in this tournament, flights and accomodation paid for from all over the planet yet the tournament has already started and there is absolutely no info / brackets etc on the web in English language.
I can only assume that the 'international flavour' is for their domestic marketing purposes and they are not really interested in trying to expand the game. Given that Joy billiards claim to have 3000 pool halls in China maybe they're correct that America and Europe are not worthwhile as markets

The info is here: http://alison-chang.com/2017/01/10/w...n-qinhuangdao/

Of interest to many of us -- Shane Van Boening lost his first match 4-13 to Yu Ting then won his second match 14-6 against Jorge Llanos. Corey Deuel won his first two matches, 13-5 vs. Alejandro Ossandon and 12-11 vs. Zheng Yubo.

If I'm reading this right, will the matches be starting up again in 6 hours? 12 o'clock China time, 8 pm west coast, 11 pm east coast?

The streams on this page are active - I don't know if they are live however. http://alison-chang.com/2017/01/10/w...n-qinhuangdao/

SVB is on Table 1.

Edit.... looks like this is live.

SVB's stroke looks much different (looser) than the rigid snooker style used by most of the other players. He's doing OK so far though.
