world Open on Phillipines TV - 10-02-2006, 10:08 AM

The World Open is scheduled to be premiered on Phillipines RPN Channel 9 TV on 3,4,6 and 7 October but not a cheep from IPT about it via their usual blanket e-mail shot to the world and his mother,though there is an article on their own site under the Press Release section (dated 29 Sept).

How does our resident site Phillipino community think the fact that Efren and the others haven't ben paid their prize money will be perceived by the viewers in the Phillipines,if indeed they know about it?

If that's the case then most of them will just move on. I don't think they will sue.

So Efren's $500,000 check arrived and he's cashed it, and it cleared or is this a joke?

That's one of the good thing about foreign players, if the check bounced KT could easily be blacklisted by banks.

Arrived? According to someone within the Efren Org, yes. Cleared? It does take a few banking days and it's a bad idea for them to bounce a "major draw" 's prize money.

That's good to hear. If I were KT, I really wouldn't want to be on Efren's bad side. KT should have pushed Efren's star right from the start, and not Mike Sigel's. Marketing Efren's trickshots video alone would make him rich...but then again, what do I know??

Efren is not exactly the best English public speaker out there. His english is pretty bad but understandable. I think they did OK with Sigel, but could have done better with Archer or Morris or another American that speaks English pretty well.

There is no doubt though that Efren is the better player out of him and Sigel. Just I dont think he would have made a good public figure for the non-pool audience to watch off the table.

Why any other player than Efren when he's the only one who can bring SRO attendance wherever he performs? The language deficiency should have been where the Marketing department did its magic. Overcoming this deficiency is one reason why most other sports are way ahead of pool in popularity.

Why can't pool be pool? Why do the insiders have to drastically sanitize it for the non-pool audience? Market the heck its positive side and that will tone down the darn effects of the negative. Pool in the Philippines is the best example of this and its strategy was based on Ying-Yang and the Art of War. Accept the truth and work with it.

Well, I guess Archer and Rodney can win by talking better, LOL.

efren doesnt need to speak good english...he let's his cue do the talking!

and besides, pool isn't just for americans, people! at least, not anymore....efren's got fans all over the world who don't speak an ounce of english.

it probably would've mattered before when only american networks showed pool or produced pool tournaments, but this is not the case anymore. if there's anyone who should be perfect as the ambassador of pool, then it's efren. he's won in tournaments all over the world and was well received each time.

I was watching one of the invitational games the Efren and Bustamante attended in Japan. They actually have mics on both player booths. One booth was speaking in Filipino while other Mandarin on Japanese TV. It strikes as odd that many Americans still see language as a BIG barrier when the rest of the world don't even care about it.

I did mention in one earlier post in another thread that Asia, most specially the Philippines, does have a better system in organizing and covering pool events. Puyat Sports is the pioneer and is still way ahead of the pack in pool event organizing, marketing and operations.

Asia is a service-oriented society so details that'll impact the end-users are placed under the magnifying glass before they cause problems down down the road.

Your saying that Efren cashed his check thats funny because it takes 30 to 45 days to clear a check in the philippines, nice try.
