Playing Negative Nancy ....

Will Hopkins close up the whole Expo and blame the overlapping of the US Open dates? Diamond did that with the Southern Open, blaming the overlap with Bonus Ball. My personal opinion was the whole thing was a money loser, and that was the scapegoat. I wonder if the same might happen with the whole Expo.

Negative Nancy says bye

This wont affect the Expo at all. The expo is about amateurs and pool related sales .

Anyone care to think about the real reason SBE and the US Open occur at the same time? Guess none of you realize The Rio had CSI move their BCAPL and USAPL amateur events to March next year. Those events also include two top "pro" events. The Predator World 10 Ball Open and the Diamond Las Vegas 9 Ball Open. SBE had no choice but to move to April and a smaller conflict. Any reasoned discussion?

Btw, how much $$$$ is added to the US Open compared to the afterthought SBE event?
He probably meant because it got put on the same time as another big event in another area, thus causing issues for the other promoter.

The Expo is not a big pro event.

That's the problem, somebody comes along to improve pool and eventually make it a true pro event with no entry fee for the players, and you have people that wish it would fail because its scheduled over the top of another event that will never improve pro pool and has very few pro players, and certainly not the elite.

Just 1 opinion...

Look regardless... if you are "FOR or AGAINST" the - EXPO... we all know & so do (ALL the promoters) that pool been in a decline for years...
so why wouldn't these promoters TRY to work together & schedule events so it helps the PEOPLE/FANS? Yes the EXPO is a huge show
for amateur's for the most part... the US Open 9-Ball pays out a lot of money!! Guess what, isn't the pro events for the people/fans?

To most who are in the know... it all goes back to the "GREED of MONEY" & Control... Those who have it rules.... & as others have said here
the EXPO has been going for over 25 years!!! The US Open 9-Ball has always been played later in the year - Oct/Nov... so who is the bully here?...
(they are the NEW kids on the block) & why didn't the ones running the US Open contact Al Hopkins to try to schedule things to help each other or did they?

Regardless... who really suffers here? Again... >>> The Fans...

Hopkins can't even schedule his Pro events right so he wouldn't have much room to complain. By all means, make a quy withdraw if he advances in both 10 Ball and 1P and force him to pick because you can't schedule crap right in the first place. That has been a declining and inconsistent event for years.

These threads just go on and on.

Adios.

Personally, I would just do away with the pro event at the expo and just put the money towards the amateur events. After all, the expo is literally THE amateur event here in the states. Hell if they want, do a 9 foot open amateur event and dub it the US Amateur National Championship.

Not many fans anyway, and certainly not enough to travel to both events.

Pool is dead and the only one attempting to promote/improve it is matchroom.

Nobody is a bully, I dont know where you people come up with this crap.

If I was match room I wouldn't have paid a cent for the name "US OPEN" with all the BS Barry pulled over the years.

Matchroom should have just started their own event with a new name and none of the BS that came with it.

You do understand that Matchroom has a contract at Mandalay Bay right? Do you think they can just tell MB when they are holding the event and they will clear their schedule?

US OPEN is a PRO event, Expo is not.

I don't even know what this thread is about.

Thousands of pool players go to the Expo and don't even care about the U.S. Open.


The Player's Championship tournament at the Expo will go on no matter what.

For me it's a great event. I'm there almost every day in the Pro area.

I liked the set up they had last year.

Heck, I might even play in the next one.

Will be good advertisement for the carbon fiber shafts I make in my basement.


I'll be playing in the TAP event then change my clothes and go play in the Pro event.

It'll be like the old days.....
