I would agree except there were an awful lot of empty seat in the venue. Anytime the demand exceeds the availability higher prices are called for...when demand is far less than availability isn't it better to make some money vs no money?

I know players that Comet is their home pool room who won't pay 50 to watch.


Take the number of available seats...start with 1/3 at say 20 a day...keep 1/3 for "session" tickets at say 10 and a 1/3 for VIP at 30 a day and make the VIP the best seats...

If you start filling up with the 20 a day tickets well keep selling them...you have people buying 30 keep selling em...


but what do I know?

You all that know me here know I'm a BIG 14.1 fan and have been for 20 years. I'm also not too far from Comet, maybe 1-1/2 hrs. I looked up the tourey info and saw the rates and decided not to go because of the rates. Don't get me wrong, I have the $$$ to go, but i'd like to see at least 2 days and the finals and that would be like $400 for me and the wife with expenses, and not even staying there over night. For that same money we could basically hit Vegas for the weekend!!!

Some say "it's not a lot of $$$ to watch the Pros".....uh yea, it is, especially in these times. If you want more people to get into the game....MAKE SURE YOU JAM THE PLACE FULL OF SPECTATORS!....not charge $50 a day to watch.

Then I checked out the online stream....WOW! compared to TAR, AZB TV, OTR, etc. the rates are too much, even though I will buy it. 50 or 60 bucks can get you a TON of online streaming IMO. Also comparing the the price to go see the 14.1 worlds a world series is a little silly.

anyway, I really don't do that much whinning, but this caught me off guard cause I planned to go watch.

Gerry...Good to see you back posting! I was in Comet last Thursday night and Friday night. I've taught several lessons in there, and always been treated wonderfully by Bill and his staff. That said, I can't imagine what Dragon has done to justify these prices. Are there bleachers?...backed seats? Where are they putting them? I can't believe that Bill would allow tables to be moved, to make room for raised seating. Somebody who is there, or watching the feed, clue me in. What kind of seating arrangements are there?

Grady lost to Yu Ram 100-90 i believe the final was....


as for the seating...they pulled the chairs up along the edge (maybe 12 feet) along the center tables...between the center and outer edge of tables to be exact....

I was in this morning...paid 25 and then was going to stay and asked could i just pay the difference in the day (40) and the session (25) and was told I would have to pay the full 25. I needed to make up my mind when i first paid...

so i left....

Hi Scott, how have you been? yup, it's that time of year for me to start hitting balls again. Plus I have a new cue coming in the mail any day I was golfing quite a bit, but I picked up a bothersome wrist pain?....so I quit....good thing it's my bridge hand!

RShellhouse...That's what I expected. It doesn't sound anything like the seating setup I've seen at other big tournaments, and setting a high price won't help.

What they did to you was outrageous. They need every fan there they can get...and they're turning them away!

The seating's been excellent . Every seat was a VIP chair, and at their gen adm price cause DRagon got rid of the VIP prices, which is bad for them but good for us spectators. Last 2 years have been the same prices at the hilton and the seats were farther away.
For those of you griping, you're really missing out. there was a good crowd came in tonight and expect it to be very busy by the weekend. Great matches!
$25 or $40 all day for up close personal view of the only World 14.1 Championship there is for the year, I am not complaining!

I read a post by you on another thread that was asking about where the brackets were on this forum. If you are there, maybe you can post them up.

Do you now work for Dragon? I'm just curious. It seems you have a great deal information about the company.

Thanks in advance for sharing the information with the forum. It is helpful to learn more about the events from someone who is there. Maybe you can get the bracket information you were asking about in the other thread and share it with the rest of us.
