All you have to do is look and you can find a little information.
Here is the web site.

I assume more information will be available after the Super Billiards Expo. I'm sure they are busy with that right now.

I have to think this might be in trouble judging by the lack of any buzz on it currently. There should be at least some qualifiers scheduled by now.

02-22-2008, 01:26 PM
im pretty sure SLATE PLUS (the old chelsea) will be holding a qualifier but i dont know when, my wife is trying to convince her boss to do it for now so ill keep you guys updated on that...

Myself and a player from out west were discussing this tournament while in VF and according to them, there were supposed to be a few qualifiers in CA that never came to fruition.

Outside of the tournament buffalo bill just mentioned, does anyone know if anymore qualifiers have been held or are confirmed to be held? I haven't been online in quite awhile and VF was my first interaction with pool in months so forgive me if I've missed something.

I would call and see how the turnout was for these qualifiers.. if they went off and had a good turn out I would bet that it is going to go off, based on Allen Hopkins past reputation of promoting quality events.

This event is definitely going to happen, so if any of you have been wondering - here is your answer. Our anticipated turnout was 200 players originally, and we are still hoping for that. As of now, over 140 players have signed up on our website, expressing their interest in playing... However, we understand that this may not happen the first year, but either way we will have an event with a big payout! We have posted some different scenarios on our website, be sure to check it out. Keep in mind, this event will happen. Even if we only get 10 players, then 10 players will play for a piece of $50,000.

Check out our site for more info, this is a great way to get involved... you can get a piece of great players around the world... This is the nuts, be sure to look into this!

And many thanks to the places around the world that have had qualifiers...
