That looks good but I like to think I have evolved to slices of peanut butter pie

I would be happy to put somebody up , but I live 5 hours away by car- they would be exhausted by the time they got to their matches each day. If they invest in a helicopter shuttle it might work! I could put 2 guys up in my guest room and 2 in my office pull out couch!

Hah, new post on Dragon's site says they dug up Tom Storm who is going to play. I thought he was making meatballs back in the motherland.

Apparently the pay per view early-bird rate ($85) ends today. I can't find anything saying what the full-event rate will be after today or what other rates (such as daily ppv rates, if any) will be.

Nor can I find a player list. One thing I read said just 5 spots left. Does that mean 43 have been filled? The original plan was 48 players -- 32 invitees plus 16 from qualifiers. How many are in so far from each group? How many qualifier events remain (I guess a couple are scheduled for today)?

It's just 2 weeks away. Better info would be appreciated (and would help in making decisions).

I know Charlie WIlliams has burned a ton of bridges in the pool world, but he should not be charging $85 for this event. At least realize that plenty of people who love the game are supporting you and they deserve better prices for PPV. Hell, if anything this should be on Facebook for free.

The corporate sponsors such as the cloth and cue makers (I presume there are a few?) should just pull the plug, put this Williams event out of its misery, and send the money to Peter Burrows’ event. He already draws an excellent field, and if the money can be concentrated in his event, it will have zero field fillers. I would also respectfully suggest that Mr. Burrows expand the Committee from one member (himself) to three or four, giving up a little control but gaining more solicitation power and building in some succession. He has done an outstanding job running and growing that event, but he could do even more for it by taking on some co-leaders.

Apparently they extended the $85 ppv rate through 11/19. I still see nothing about what the rates (including daily rates) will be after that.

You know, I've never been one to care much for what goes on from the promoters side of things, but this is beyond silly. I'll give credit to the players showing up because they obviously just want the opportunity to play their favorite game, but Charlie Williams obviously must have a gigantic ego if he cannot see all the wrong stuff he has been doing with this tournament over the years. I don't know the guy, but no wonder some people say the things they say about him.

Just look at the idiotic way they post on their 14.1 facebook page.

The most remarkable part is that he is a professional promoter!

Maybe not. Audiovideoweb is still showing it at $85 -- the rate that was going to end on the 17th and then was going to end on the 19th.
