i'm reading the rules on racking/breaking. really interesting. not sure if they revised/added some rules.


RACKING BALLS:
A plastic rack sheet will be used for racking of balls to make perfect racking and save the time for racking by a referee. Players are not permitted to touch the balls once racked.
BREAK-SHOT RULES:
The following rules are to be an addition to the WPA 9-Ball rules. At least three (3) object balls must either be pocketed or pass the head string as a result of a break in order for it to be legal. Any combination of the above (i.e. 1 object ball pocketed and 2 object balls passing the head string, or 2 object balls pocketed and 1 object ball passing the head string) is also legal. Regardless of whether any balls are pocketed if a player fails to earn the required rules, it will be considered an illegal break (this is not the same as a foul break as defined in the WPA Rules)
After an illegal break:
1) Opponent has the option either to accept the table as it is, or hand it back to the player that performedthe break.
2) In case the opponent accepts the table as it is, the player will not be allowed to perform a push-out.
3) If the table is handed back to the player that performed the break, the player is allowed to perform a push-out.
4) If 9-ball is pocketed in a legal break, the player wins the game. If in case of an illegal break, 9-ball is re-spotted before play is continued, then opponent has an option.

Kozoom did mention that scheduling was a part of the reason why they werent streaming the world championships BUT this is the crown jewel of our sport. When i brought up that i hoped it wasnt due to the freez during the meat of the ko/shane final, the rep i emailed with kozoom stated they didnt believe that to be the reason why they werent asked back.so the qataris had to have some reason why the didnt select kozoom this year.either way, its a very unfortunate situation.

It's amazing how the western world is not capable to stage the biggest pool tournament in the world. After a a couple of smooth, more or less, years, the Qataris are back to their incompetent best. No info, no draws, no stream. Ted Lerner is nowhere to be found too. The game is dead and buried.

The "western world" is capable of staging it, but no one is prepared to lose the money involved in doing so. Matchroom may have had a model that made economic sense (i.e., maybe it was profitable for them to stage it and broadcast via Sky Sports), but for whatever reason they stopped doing it. Who else is going to do it?

The draws for the first qualifier was posted above.

I too wish that Kozoom was back streaming it and would like to know what happened. But if they do get two table streamed via YouTube, that is more "coverage" than you get at even the US Open - although the quality of the stream content (live scoring, commentary, etc.) remains in question.

AL KASS's website only shows programming for today and tomorrow- no mention of the World Championship anywhere. They have an article detailing the Qatari players but no mention of program scheduling.

You can stream the first 4 AL KASS channels live, but without any schedule, I don't know when or which channel.

Matchroom stopped because of the development of the 10 ball world championship. For some reason they did not like that.

From memory, their issue was they were marketing the World 9 ball as THE World Pool Championships. The development of world 10 ball, 8 ball and 14.1 championships watered down their product. So they focused their attention on the World Pool Masters and the World Cup of Pool.

since 2010 W9B, Filipinos, Taiwanese, Chinese and Japanese players have traveled to Doha to participate. in fact, a lot of Filipino players decided to reside in Qatar and teach pool or work as house pros. Apparently, Qatar wants to promote pool in their country.
the past 2 years have been awesome when Kozoom streamed it. not sure why they're not doing it now.

fact: all major WPA events are streamed for free except for the US Open 9-ball.

Al Kass TV? lol 3 years ago they were saying there's gonna be a live streaming from the last 64 and on and nothing happened. Then they said from last 16 and on and nothing happened. Then the semis and guess what? Nothing happened. We eventually got a glimpse of the final and like someone said, it was completely unwatchable. I've checked their schedule and there no pool matches to be found. They're incompetent as much as WPA is. It seems like Ted Lerner isn't working for WPA anymore too, does anyone has any info on that? The guy seems to have disappeared this year.

Worst thing is Qatar still has the tournament for the next year too. This is the only tournament not to missed by any pool fan and the idiots in Qatar and WPA managed to ruin everything once AGAIN. Pathetic!

So which guys from the U.S is playing?

Based on the draw sheet I saw, none of the entrants to the qualifiers (so far) are American. They are largely Asian (including PI) and from the Middle East, with a couple of Europeans.

I think I read that the U.S. gets 8 spots in the main draw, and without a national federation paying to fly the players out there, it is a long way to go and a lot of money to spend. As a purely business proposition, a North American player would have to assume they are going to go very deep into the money at the main event in order to justify the cost of going.

Announcement from Kozoom fb page:

"To all Pool fans who were expecting seeing Kozoom taking care of the Live Streaming coverage of the 2016 World 9-Ball Championship. To stop rumours and make it clear for everyone, let me clarify why Kozoom are not covering this championships:

Kozoom was contacted by the QBSF in order to take care of the coverage like the previous years. The budget has never been a problem in our discussions with the QBSF and we can only be glad for their loyalty and trust in Kozoom. Unfortunately, I have decided to decline this coverage because we were not able to guarantee technically an unlimited number of free viewers on our platform, which was the request of the QBSF. We had a bad experience during the final match last year and, even after improving the capacity of our platform, it was not possible to guarantee a stable and good service in case of feed cut (bandwidth capacity can be improved easily to match with the increase of viewers but not thousands and thousands of html requests). You have to understand that our platform has been built to provide PPV services to billiards community, which of course means automatically less viewers. With the World 9-Ball, we expect > 30,000 simultaneous viewers, which would mean > 40,000 if we cumulate our other events that we have to handle at the same time (3-Cushion Open in New-York and the Pool ECs in Albania). This amount of viewers all simultaneously would put the quality we provide at risk & that would not be fair to our fans. I believe that only a huge platform like Youtube could handle such audiences but taking this direction would mean we could not have provided the added features that you are used to receiving with Kozoom productions.

To conclude, please do not blame the QBSF who are still one of the best promoters of our sport over the last decade as this would be unfair & please do not blame Kozoom for not doing something we cannot guarantee today. We want to protect the quality of our service and our reputation.

What about efren, busty, leevan, biado?

3 of those names can't win your local weekly 9 ball tourney.

Sad that ur jealousy overtook u so mch that u felt the need to bash them. Meanwhile everyone on that list and even the few u may be talking about are flush enough financially to travel the world at their leisure. Not to mention the fact they get to play in the world 9 ball tournament. Not to mention that they play the game we all love everyday they choose because that's their jobs lol.


Team USA forget the negativity, do ur best, have fun, and represent our great country as best as you can.

I'm not bashing anyone. I hope all of them do well or even win it. But that is probably not a reality. They are not America's BEST players although they can play. I'm disappointed not to see Archer, Morris or yes, even Earl.

Announcement from Kozoom fb page:

"To all Pool fans who were expecting seeing Kozoom taking care of the Live Streaming coverage of the 2016 World 9-Ball Championship. To stop rumours and make it clear for everyone, let me clarify why Kozoom are not covering this championships:

Kozoom was contacted by the QBSF in order to take care of the coverage like the previous years. The budget has never been a problem in our discussions with the QBSF and we can only be glad for their loyalty and trust in Kozoom. Unfortunately, I have decided to decline this coverage because we were not able to guarantee technically an unlimited number of free viewers on our platform, which was the request of the QBSF. We had a bad experience during the final match last year and, even after improving the capacity of our platform, it was not possible to guarantee a stable and good service in case of feed cut (bandwidth capacity can be improved easily to match with the increase of viewers but not thousands and thousands of html requests). You have to understand that our platform has been built to provide PPV services to billiards community, which of course means automatically less viewers. With the World 9-Ball, we expect > 30,000 simultaneous viewers, which would mean > 40,000 if we cumulate our other events that we have to handle at the same time (3-Cushion Open in New-York and the Pool ECs in Albania). This amount of viewers all simultaneously would put the quality we provide at risk & that would not be fair to our fans. I believe that only a huge platform like Youtube could handle such audiences but taking this direction would mean we could not have provided the added features that you are used to receiving with Kozoom productions.

To conclude, please do not blame the QBSF who are still one of the best promoters of our sport over the last decade as this would be unfair & please do not blame Kozoom for not doing something we cannot guarantee today. We want to protect the quality of our service and our reputation.

Xavier Carrer
CEO Kozoom Group"

I don't get it? They turned down the contract because they didn't want to use a YouTube platform to stream the final matches????

Couldn't they at the very least go and record the matches for watching later?

Can anyone else interpret this other than Kozoom ditching because they didn't want to use YouTube?

I believe the BCA gets a certain number of spots (8 I think). I'm sure they offer them to the top ranked US players. I suspect that the people like Rodney who aren't on the list declined, so the BCA kept moving down the list.

So yea idk too many tournaments he's played that he hasn't done well in recently.

Regional events and small bar box tournaments arent looked at the same as the big boy events. Per wpa website, he only played in 3 tournaments since the start dcc last year and didnt fair well in any of them. Currently ranked 68th, theres a reason why efren and busty choose not to pay the expense to go through qualifiers.

There isn't too many "big" 9foot 9 ball tournaments In The US so him not doing well in 9ball on @9ft shouldn't equate to him not qualifying. I imagine he's spent the majority of his time in the US this year so He didn't have the option to compete in 9ft 9ball. The tournaments in America readily available were the "pro" one pocket 8 ball n 10ball n a few bar box 9ball and he did about as God overall as anyone else playing the same American "tour". What I'm saying is he's been a top player for about 30 years and this year he's look better than he has in awhile so I'm surprised he isn't playing. I'm not into debating u ur opinion is just that but I believe had he played he would of had a good chance to get deep in the tournament especially having the wisdom and experience he has. But he's not playing so we will never know.

Speaking of having a great year I almost expect Dennis Orcollo to win this tournament. The last few months in the American tournaments he's looked more consistant and focused and unbeatable than ever.

He didn't have the option? There's a reason why he'd rather hang out around the us playing these bar box and regional tournament . He knows he can't compete abroad or he'd never leave his country . He gets a spot from the young guns on a regular in the phillipines and games. I agree he is a legend and has played better this year than he past 10 but that doesn't mean he can compete and make a living abroad. Us has easier money for him at this point in his career. He knows he wouldn't let out of day two

barrymuch90
07-28-2016, 12:24 PM
So why do all the young guns that "can compete" in their home country all leave? It's obviously not because they can't compete. It's because the United States is where the most money is and its not directly correlated with soft level or easier competition. It's the fact that there's tournaments all the time yes some are smaller regional events but also maybe twice a month there are tournaments with multiple world class players serious prize funds. Not to mention the added fame and prestige a winning player receives globally doing well in America. So again to say that just because bustamante hasn't done well in 9 foot 9 ball recently he shouldn't qualify is ridiculous because he's doing more then well competeting regularly in the US. It's not his fault the tournaments worth playing in America vary in game n currently among the professional caliber tournaments 9 ball is the least popular. The fact that he's competing in the 16 men multiple thousand dollar entry tournaments and placing/cashing should tell u the current level his game is regardless of of its 9ball one pocket 10 ball 8 ball barbox. If he's competing n beating other professional caliber players it should reflect in his rank. I believe if 128 people play in the tournament bustamante should of been selected to play without the need to qualify. Is he in the top 10 no but is he not in the top 128? Again I'm aware his recent accomplishments weren't 9 ball n this is the world 9 ball but when ur in America n the tournaments worth playing are other games he's going to play them and to me since he's recently done well in those tournaments it should hold some weight in the qualification. It's not like he's a one pocket specialist and has won a few one pocket tournaments he's well rounded and has placed in multiple different disciplines among world class players.

Ok so they leave to the us because they can't compete? Nope it's because they're playing against the same if not stronger players than the us. And do some homework. Aside from the snooker, the most money in pool is in Chinese 8 ball. It's visa issues that keep most home .

I think you misunderstood his point. His point was that the young guns who can compete DO leave the country to compete (when they can get visas), presumably for money and prestige. Is that not the case? If it is, then I don't see why it is a knock against Busty that he is competing in the US.

By the way, I accept that he no longer plays as strong as some of the top Pinoys, but I still think he plays world class speed and is a threat to go deep in a strong field.

Do some homework? Lol u act like I'm debating u using facts I read somewhere. I know what I'm talking about and obviously the language barrier is negatively affecting ur ability to see my point. I didn't say any one particular tournament has more money then one snooker tournament or Chinese 8 ball. That's apples n oranges I said the most money in the us I thought it was assumed I was only talking about pool since this is a pool forum and were talking about a pool player. Anyway the fact remains there is ample opportunity to win money in the US plus the fame a player receives is exponentially better when winning tournaments on American soil. And like the guy before me already stated I was saying that u said busty left because he can't compete with the young guns, so I asked why do u think the young guns leave? It's pretty apparent that everyone's goal is to come to America n were in agreement on that so busty is in America for all of those reason more so than because he can't compete back home. Unfortunately I think no matter how I broke things down or how crystal clear my points are you would still disagree or try to take a shot at me so I'm done with this and I'm not like busty a number one fan I was surprised he wasn't playing because he's had a great year compared to past years.

I suspect the truth is that for the pro's they need to play in as many high profile tournaments as possible, some are in the US, some in Europe and some in Asia. There isn't a mass of sponsorship in pool so many pro's need to play all over the world regardless of where they were born.

But again its pool, shit happens lol
But anyway i will give 1-10 for the money if anyone would like to take up my bet of wu not advancing. .

Every other group contains 2 or more killers which makes it so hard to predict.

Kozoom's statement is full of poop. The added features are nice but NOT essential, especially if the stream is FREE. So they (both Kozoom and Qatar) decided not to go the Youtube road and leave the world's biggest pool tournament in the dark for all the fans around the world. Nice promoter$ they are, congratulations indeed. And some of you folks are wondering why pool is dying. Better a problematic and basic coverage than no coverage at all.

I don't get it? They turned down the contract because they didn't want to use a YouTube platform to stream the final matches????

Couldn't they at the very least go and record the matches for watching later?

Can anyone else interpret this other than Kozoom ditching because they didn't want to use YouTube?

Youtube is Kozoom's enemy, if you connect the dots you'll understand why Kozoom refused to take that option. But what is astonishing is Qatar not being capable to install a bloody webcam at least on the main table and stream via Youtube by themsevels. Their incompetence is really something else. If they can't buy it, it's midnight for them. Will never buy anything from Kozoom ever again.

Qatar shouldn't host future events of such magnitude if they can't provide basic streaming services. Such a shame really. I mean the least they could do is
show the main table or few tables for that matter on youtube or other streaming sites. I'm highly disappointed but what can ya do?

It was a breath of fresh air the last 2 years, now we're back again down the drain. Not a single info about time and everything else, literally back to zero when I thought
they got their heads together in the past and provided the best coverage. Sad day for pool fans. I'm afraid we might be dealing with this for the next couple of years for
world 9 ball since Qatar in contracted to host this event till 2019 iirc. We're basically doomed.

Yes Yapp is solid. I believe he's Singapore's top player now and eliminated Jeff Ignacio last year but succumbed to Wu in the last stages.

He's young (only 20 yrs old), world jr champ. You can tell he's really hungry to win a huge one, a few more years and experience on the pro circuit and he'd be deadly.

Americans doing poorly this week? Wow, what a shocker, given that they've just played their last two events on bar tables at the US Open 10 ball ad US Open 8 ball events in Vegas. Could you ask for better preparation than that?

I have posted on a few occasions that the move in the direction of bar table events will further reduce the pedigree of Americans when they play in the most prestigious international events. Comically, we'll be using a lot of bar table events to determine who should compete for the US at the Mosconi in December.

American pool is seriously broken right now with no end in sight. That said, I admire any American that made the trip to Doha and wish them well.

Nick Van den Berg
Carlo Biado
C. Yu Lung

So with Darren Appleton, Dennis orcullio, Jeffrey Ignacio, jayson shaw, Shane van boening and Niels feijen, the one loss side is looking more like the winners' side. If they lose tomorrow, they are out. But at least, they still have a chance. Mika Immonen and Aloysius Yapp have already been eliminated.

It really is the strongest looking one loss side ever lol but hopefully the majority make it through the group stage to make for a more intense 64 bracket

Info from the the World Pool-Billiard Association facebook page says that Al Kass Sports TV will be streaming the tv table starting Tuesday. I assume that is table #1 since it was in years past.

Indeed, it has to be table 1 and while Group A match is the right one to watch (Ko vs Shaw), it's quite unfortunate they have the Yukio vs Haitao from group B on table 1. No disrespect to that match which is very good, but when you have a certain Wu vs Feijen or SVB vs Kiamco at the same time, it feels somehow secondary...

SVB has had Kiamco's number for years, the last time he beat Shane was at the 2012 Johnny Archer Classic 11 games to 2. In multiple interviews Shane has stated that Kiamco has always been his easiest opponent. You never know with the old warrior though, he tends to go deep into these fields. You're right, would've been a great match for the TV table.
