The ABP represents the world’s best pool players that are uniting together for a common
cause. Over the years, players have endured many hardships and has found it necessary to try to reach
common ground between the promoters of events and the professional players. Without a voice, players
have not been able to adequately communicate and work with promoters. Promoters likewise have been
lacking in instruction and guidance from the pro players.

Some events and associations have not been able to sometimes protect the players from issues ranging
from prize money payments, equipment issues and conditions, and rules/format.
As the saying goes, “there is strength in numbers”, and this has led to the formation of the ABP.
The ABP led by some notable names such as Johnny Archer, Mika Immonen, Rodney Morris and many
others in a committe of top players unified under a common purpose:
To elevate the sport of pocket billiards and protect and assist in the well being of every player.

The ABP is an association for the players and by the players. The players now have a united voice to help
bring resolutions to seemingly never ending issuess we face in the industry. The ABP, with your help, can
bring about a positive change in a fair and appropriate manner. From standardizing equipment, rules, and
creating systems to insure the payment of prize money so the players can get paid and in a timely fashion.
The ABP is for unification. The ABP is for change. Please join, support us, and see your name stand next
to the world's greatest.

Below is a list of confirmed players who share in the ABP ideals and want to make a change now in our
sport.
