I will be holding a 14.1 tournament at Main Street Billiards in Amsterdam, NY (Albany area) on Sunday March 7th at noon. A beautiful new room with 8 Diamond Pro-Am 9 foot tables.

The format will be to qualify into a final 8 single elimination format, 75 or 100 points for the final 8 round depending on how many show to qualify, so we can conclude the event around 9pm including the final 8 round.

To qualify players will set up a breakball and rack the remaining 14, then run balls until they mis or foul, this is done 5 times and the 5 scores will make a total for that qualifying round, a qualifying round is what we will call a "buy-in". Players will have the chance to "buy-in" up to 4 times at $12 per buy-in to try and qualify into the final 8 single elim tournament. Top 8 scores (5 attempts added up) make the final 8, ties at the 8 spot will playoff using the qualifier format to see who makes the final 8.

For the players that do not qualify into the final 8, there will be a second chance 40 or 50 point single elim tournament for a first place prize only. No entry fee required for the second chance and 1st place in the second chance will pay 10% of what is in the main prize pool after all buy-ins are done.

Doors open at noon and we will have a short players meeting at 12:15 and get going quickly. Players will be allowed to practice by hitting 1 rack of balls prior to each of their buy-ins. $10 of each buy-in will go to a prize pool and the remaining $2 goes to table time. 100% payout.

Qualifying will run approx. between 12:30 and 3:30pm, the final round of 8 will begin approx. 3:30pm and conclude approx. 9pm.

Sunday March 7th - Noon registration/ no pre-registrations - Start 12:30.

$12 qualifier buy-in - up to 4 buy-ins per player.

Open event and is open to ALL players, no players excluded.
