Your thoughts possible 14.1 Tourney - 08-09-2007, 07:59 AM

Hey folks, I am thinking of running a pro 14.1 tournament along side my league nationals in May '08. I have put my thoughts together below that I would be putting on my website and flyers. Input appreciated, also any players here that would definately play in qualifiers? Any room owners interested in hosting a satellite qualifier?

There are no sponsors or added money.

thanks
Kev

Can I make a suggestion?

Instead of having a prize fund that is restricted to a certain amount of entreis required for each qualifier, why not have a completely open tournament, like the US Open, where everyone turns up, with their entry fee to play, but is possible, choose a room that has at least 16 tables, because I would imagine that if you're holding an open event, there's alot of guys that would happily travel to play in the event, especially if you can get sponsorship and have adde prize money

I would recommend say a $200, this way instead of there being alot of guys looking around for qualifiers, they can book their hotel, etc, pay their entrance fee, and play

Also you could have it that ALL entry fees be paid advance, and set up a paypal account for people to be able to pay online if they wish too

These are just some suggestion, as a means of being able to offer up that little bit more prize money and for a bigger event

I know one thing, if you're holding it in may, I'll definitely be happy to come over from Ireland to play in the tournament and perhaps the possibility of bringing a few other guys along, if they're up for it

Either way it sunds good and I would be up for it

If you want to have a "National Championship" I think it would be better to make it a real national championship and not just another so-called national championship. That is, the winner should be recognized as the US Champion. It might also make it easier to get sponsors.

Thank you Willie for your input. Your suggestions are certainly a possibility and I will definately give them some thought. The room actually has 25 tables in it, but I was going to use 10 to hold this event. I do have a paypal setup so thats a possibility as well.

Bob, I do realize what you are saying. I would imagine that the 14.1 US Open in Nov. in Louisville might be the recognized national championship? Maybe a re-titling of the event might be in order.

A quote from Jimmy Caras has always stuck with me, "guys today don't understand, back in the day you had to win a qualifier to the final 16 to become a champion".

Hey Kev, many thanks for your reply buddy

If the room has got 25 tables, then why not find out about the possibility of using 20 tables in the tournament, that way, it will allow for alot more matches to be played simultaniously, thus helping the keep the tournament match action flowing, and so, as the tournament gets the the latter stages, you can us less tables and less, e.g. 16 tables, then 8 tables, 4, 2, and so on.

Again, I hope that this is of some help and I look forward to updates of this events as they progress

Willie

I think you have to ask either the BCA or the UPA whether there is a national championship. To the best of my knowledge, there has been no US men's National Championship in any form of pool for a long, long time, nor is any planned.
