World 9 ball? - 08-14-2019, 09:29 PM

News says WPA 9 ball is this week, home page, odd Shaw and SVB is the same time period. Gotta be a miss print right?

I read World nine ball started December 3 in Qatar.

It's actually been REMOVED from the WPA calendar so everyone has been a little concerned if it is still going to be played in December or not... Is Def NOT going on this week and no idea who Nancy Miles is.......

One of the most confusing articles I've ever read on AZB Headline news. It includes:

1) a claim that the event began on Tuesday earlier this week but also claims that sports books have yet to set odds on it.
2) no link to the results page, customarily provided in the big events
3) a truly daring projection that the three who will succeed are three guys who won gold, silver and bronze in the 2018 version of this event

One has to wonder how this article ever made it to AZB headline news.

... corrected on 8/16

Wouldn't it be better if people who follow the pool scene write the articles about the pro pool world?

This writer has brought incompetence to a new and unprecedented level here on AZB.

AZB has an "ignore" feature so that we don't have to view the posts of those whose contributions offend us. If this kind of garbage headline is going to be permitted on AZB, perhaps we need an "ignore" feature for authors who contribute articles.

I can't see any such news article on AZB. But perhaps they are confusing it with the APA tournament that is going this week. It is branded as a World Championship for both 9 ball and 8 ball. I think Carlo Biado would be competitive


I would kill for a nobel peace prize

I’m pretty sure Carlo’s teammates will swear he’s just a strong 5.

It was under "Latest News" on the AzB front page until just a little while ago. Gone now.

It's still there, listed second on the list of headline articles.

Ugh, I see it again now. [It does say that Biado won in 2017.]

So is it possible that there will be no 2019 version of this event? Back in early 2018, soon after the 2017 event, the WPA announced they had a deal for 4 more years in Doha -- 2018 through 2021. Has something gone wrong with that deal? As The Renfro posted above, it is not on the WPA calendar currently. Is Wiki right about the dates?

Given the evidence, I think we have to assume this is possible. Hope it's not the case.

I tried contacting WPA, no response as usual. Worthless organization in my book. I then tried to contact the Qatar organizers. Their contact page is gone and their site hasn't been updated in a year. The '19 event may be dead, don't know. I know the organizers look pretty clueless to me.

Well, if the Qatar folks bail, maybe the fine people at Matchroom will entertain getting the World’s too. Be nice to have a proper product befitting a world championship rather than what we’ve been seeing from Qatar. IMO of course.
