I like the $500 entry fee...two guys from my area will probably go at that price.

I like to flit around....but we could’ve enjoyed whispering through a match together.
...so next tournament you see me at...please save me a seat.

Will there be neutral rackers? They are absolutely critical.

Nice. I like the last 32 single elim.

Will you open the field to 256 since less entry fee? Or still cap it at 128?

Yes, neutral rackers.
And no rack inspections.

Missing 2020 too. Not missing Halloween with my kids. I was hoping this event would be a yearly event for me that replaced the USOpen. Family first. Hoping for 2021.

Hopefully no 2ball at the back.

Let's have 7 randomly racked balls instead of 6.

This event attracts the elite players. Let's make them work harder for their 'break and run outs'

Look at this years event. As they knew the 2ball was being racked at the back every time, they were trying to make the 1ball and control the 2ball near the side pocket.
And alot were very successful!

I've never understood why the 2ball is racked at the back.

Would someone care to enlighten me.

Rant over.
Thanks

Why don't you just make it Ten Ball and be done with it. We could use a good Ten Ball event in this country with some decent added money. It would also make it more attractive to the better players. Just shorten the Races to Nine and the scheduling can remain the same.

160 players at 500 each is $80,000. Add $50,000 and you have a $130,000 purse. You could pay 48 spots and still keep 30K on top.

Even though it can be semi predictable from there, it's better then having random with a neutral racker because if the racker then places it behind the 1 or in the back then it could be considered favoritism whether it was intentional or not. Last thing we need is another reason for some players to argue over the rack.

IMO, it's better just to put it in the back and be done with it.

CSI and Predator do have the World 10-ball now, to coincide with BCA league championships in Vegas. It will be in March next year, so in 4 months.
