I had heard rumors but I couldn't bring them to the table of course. Great to get some real poop on the video.

Thanks!

Funny how nobody has ever heard of 'Hot Ticket Entertainment, LLC', but their exclusive domain is producing pool and billiard events. IMO, just another slam at entities like TAR, that already exist, already have a track record, and already have an audience. These guys are gonna produce their event, their way (with no communication with, nor advice from, experts who have done this before), using their people...and experience be damned! Well, good luck fellas!

It is their event, and obviously they plan to sink or swim on their own. More power to them.

If the money for ALL the purses is in escrow why is eveybody slamming them. Their putting up a fortune for this event and if they don't want anyones help, so be it. With the lack of info about the event they could already have a top notch tournament director and others from the pool tournament indusry. Johnnyt

The 'top notch' TD has been chosen.

Ken Shuman is the current TD for the US Open 9 ball event
Ken Shuman is the current TD for the Derby City Classic
Ken Shuman is the current National Tournament Referee and Director for the BCAPool Leagues and Head Ref trainer.

Ken and his chosen staff are very reputable and experienced players and directors/referees.

The rest of the crew for the tournament are the promoters. They are the one with the facts to provide when they feel it is necessary.

Oh, BTW, there are VIP tickets for the entire event on sale for $125. These also include the TV table seating area. See the website for purchasing these tickets.

Johnnyt...That's the problem, as I see it. Nothing has been put in escrow. Escrow means it is in a bank account, and can be verified by independent people (ie. the players, or a players' representative). The promoters have SAID they are guaranteeing 1st place prize money for each event (that doesn't mean it's in escrow somewhere). That says nothing about the payout for the rest of the paid field...which apparently the promoters don't feel like they need to provide details for. There are certainly precedents already for promoters who said the money was guaranteed, but when push came to shove, it wasn't. I'm not trying to badmouth this event...I'd love to see it come off, as it is proposed. That said, however, I'm still from Missouri (like several others here)...prove it! I have no doubt that the event will happen. Whether it flops or not remains to be seen. They have retained quality people to direct the tournament, and posted a deposit with Diamond...which is good. Best of luck to all the players, professional and amateur, who show up and play!

Before we jump to conclusions about TAR, perhaps we should consider that the press release did not have the words "exclusive broadcast".

In fact, didn't see the word "exclusive" anywhere.

This is the kind of negativity that I have come to deplore.

You don't know anything about Hot Ticket Entertainment, LLC and you make all kinds of negative insinuations about them and the promoters and you have it all wrong.

Hot Ticket Entertainment, LLC is simply a new name of an EXPERIENCED AND HIGHLY COMPETENT TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS who have done an EXCELLENT JOB at providing high quality production for billiard events.

The only problem I see is people like you taking pot shots at every opportunity to knock this tournament, the promoters and even the players.

Sure, you're not trying to badmouth this event.......SURE

You make your own definitions about what an escrow is and what the promoters have done and haven't done.

Your snide remarks of wishing luck to the players and your entire post reeks of pessimism and sarcasm and I am frankly shocked by your comments and the manner in which you continue to project them.

SURE! You're not trying to badmouth this event.

Why is it another slam at entities like TAR? How do you know who they have and/or haven't advised? Do you have the inside track and are just holding out on us? What gives Scott?

Johnny,

I am working from memory but I thought we were guaranteed that first place monies would be put in escrow. No way for all of the other monies to be put in escrow as I think they are coming from entry fees up until the last minute.

As of yet I haven't seen any confirmation of any monies in escrow or any indication of on what date they plan to do that. First place in escrow won't mean too much if they have already collected enough entry fees for the entire payout to cover first place monies before putting "first place monies" in escrow.

I'm very specifically not saying there is a problem here other than the promoters usual problem of inadequate communications. The particulars of the fund guarantee was another question to be asked in the chat that didn't take place.

I think things are golden for a great one time event. I am hoping for a lot more from these people and I have to admit I am not nearly as confident of that. I think we should get ready to have a good time in Galveston and see what happens afterwards. One thing for sure, we will know a hell of a lot more after this first event!
