2019 U.S. Open FULL! - 01-19-2019, 10:01 AM

The full field of 256 players has been reached, three months early! This is totally unheard of in the Pool world. I've never seen anything like this before. Full credit to Matchroom for being who they are in Pool! Testimony to how highly they are regarded and how desirable it is to be able to compete in one of their events.

P.S. Just to clarify. They now have 221 paid entries and the remaining 35 spots will be awarded via global qualifiers held prior to the main event. Some very good players are going to have to try to get in this way. This will be like Turning Stone where players pay their entries six months out to hold their spot in the tournament.

I'm being dead serious when I say that this is a great day for pool.

American pool has had a really good few months in that:

1) Pat Fleming has created a new and wonderful event in Virginia that is WPA sanctioned.

2) Matchroom has taken over the WPA sanctioned US Open and has, arguably, already done the impossible by filling a field of 256 at an entry fee of $1,000, raising the event to an even higher level than in the past.

3) CSI and Predator have teamed up to produce a WPA sanctioned World 10-ball event in July at the Rio in Vegas.

4) The US won its first Mosconi Cup this decade at a moment where the event's shelf life was starting to come into question due to years of American futility.

Let the good times roll for American pool.

Just gotta figure out how to get the under-25's to take notice and pick up a cue. Could be a tough slog. Viva Las Vegas!!!!!

I guess this means that Chris Swart at California Billiards holds the last qualifying spot which will be awarded on the weekend prior to the event +$750 towards expenses.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

It is a new pool world, and you better be ready to preregister!

I went to play an event today. Place opened at 10 and play start at 11.

I got there at 1015 and got told it was too late.

Dammit! Especially when I woke up at 630...double dammit.

Doesn't surprise me one bit it's in Vegas it's matchroom and it's the first time there , heck I even considered throwing some dead money in the pool ,, I'm more than sure the spectators wiill be several times more than ever before not just because of the pool but all the other things Vegas has to offer

That is impressive they filled it out at 1K a pop. Equally impressive they got that many places already set to hold a qualifier. Congrats.
