I agree. I watched the last couple and it looked like they were playing in a funeral home. I know a couple that went and said they hated it. They never left their hotel room other than to go play. They couldn't wait to leave. Only reason it was there is because the QBSF laid a big bag of $$$$ on Ian Anderson's WPA.

qatar is a ridiculous little country that ruins a lot of sports.. w9c should be held in europe or east asia where most pro players come from.

It really has been a pitiful display for what should be pool's premiere event. As others have stated it looks like they are playing in outerspace the room is so big, empty, and quiet. Nothing like what Matchroom used to produce or produced at the US Open. My favorite though is from a few years ago when Hohmann won the commentary was all in the native language and I had to chuckle because it sounded like those dudes never even stopped talking to breathe not even for a second between shots.

Bring it back to the USA. Was a lot of fun attending back in Arlington Hights in late 90s. Greg Sullivan could take it over. Hold it in NOLA at the Harrah's. Would be some good eating. All the buffet fans could stay in Vegas.

Nah, wishful thinking.

They’ve been preparing for the World Cup...FIFA...2022
There is an investigation on how and why they were awarded the hosting rights.

My apologies for this article. It is a sponsored post with promotional links so I beg your pardon. I will be a better proofreader in the future. Thanks.

MORE: i asked if Qatar had indicated bowing out as host country and they said so far no, they hadn't been told that yet. Its middle of Aug. and its possible they just haven't posted dates with WPA. We'll see. Wish this was somewhere like Sydney, Tokyo,Montreal, Miami. Somewhere people actually want to visit.

Nice detective work, fella.

Sad to hear this news, though. Need to keep this event alive.

I would love to see it return to Cardiff, Wales where it was a first class production in every respect.

I wish Matchroom still ran it. WPA is kinda clueless. They have ZERO game when it comes to promotion. Barry and Crew give 'em the six when it comes to putting on a show.

I was watching some matches from the 2004 World 9 ball event and it's sad to see the difference between then and now. The production for the time was great and the crowd was huge for a pool tournament. Not only that but Alex won 75k which went up to 100k the following year. It's sad to see the game slide back instead of move forward.

If Qatar isn't hosting the event anymore, I'm fine with that even if it means missing a year. We got a great World 10 ball Championship so it's not like we are going a year without crowning a world champ. Eventually, someone will pick up the World 9 ball and whoever it is, it has to be better than Qatar. I felt like having it over there for the past 7 years or so did nothing to develop and promote the game. It was so hidden away with barely any coverage that it might as well not have happened at all.


I would kill for a nobel peace prize
