For a really smart guy that is one of the dumbest questions I have ever heard you ask in all these 50 years we have known each other. Ask your self: "WHAT WOULD ERNIE HAVE SAID!!" Call me up about this as if I gave you my thoughts on the matter Mr.Wilson would ban me forever.

I hope this event is the success the promoters anticipate!

Secondly, it will be curious to see how the chosen players handle the pressure playing for this kind of money! If the winner goes thru the tournament undefeated, He will have played for $2,885.00 PER POINT!

I personally have been in this position several times in my life and have come out on top!

I have played 3 cushion for $2.00 a game all the way up to $90,000.00 a game, and I can tell you from my own experience for me, the ONLY differences were the 'Zero's!'

For me, winning is everything, because it was ALWAYS about the money, period!

I'm glad to see that I'm still alive to see this type of prize fund started in this country, I only wish my game was at the level I know it could be to be able to participate in a such a special venue!

"Good Shooting and Good Billiards" to all the players!

In one article I saw they said it was the top 6 ranked players, plus the 2 most recent World Champions not in the top 6, 2 iconic stars of an earlier era, and the top 2 Americans. All but Pedro and Hugo are former world champions.

If you can afford to bankroll a tournament like this and you are promoting the game you free stream it for the public to see no Kozoom or other memberships required.

Maybe he's not doing it to promote the game
Maybe it's all for his amusement, and maybe he gets a cut of the kozoom sales in it somehow

Maybe

But don't hold your breath for a free stream

I too wish all the players the best of luck. My only concern is that the USBA seems not to have been consulted by the UMB in the planning of this event. As it is being held in this country this seems to me to be rather odd.

You are right!
This wealthy patron could have put up $500,000.00 in prize money instead of $608,000.00.
That extra $108,000.00 could have been put to good use in promoting 3-Cushion Billiards and encouraging new 3-Cushion players all across the US.

To our amazement, the wish was granted. What were we to say to the genie?
"STUPID WOMAN. YOU USED THE WRONG BILLIONAIRE."

I think that would not only be extremely rude, it would also qualify as an effort to be more catholic than the Pope.

This tournament will do a lot more than stroke a rich man's ego. It will be the shot in the arm the game is in dire need of, on the American continent even more than anywhere else.

The Crystal Kelly tournaments (1994 - 2011) were not streamed, the McCreery will be. We could look this gift horse in the mouth, or we could look forward to some mouth-watering 3-cushion in August.
And enjoy the irony: that the event was named after a tax man.

Bert: I have always enjoyed your pithy comments and your wit. I hope you enjoy my wit also but suspect it is only about half the time....

I am making a video concerning genies and beaches that I hope will amuse you.....too long to type out although I am working from sort of a script. Will be working on the third take sometime today and if happy will be posting it on you tube. it will be no more than 5 minutes long and I am looking forward to your comments on it.

Cheerzzzz

ddddddddddddddddddddd

I have no problem with the name of a backer being out there, but I don't think we have to badmouth his politics.
