2017 “Make-It-Happen” One-Pocket Invitational
June 8-11, 2017

For the 10th edition of our MIH series, six super-talented professional players were selected to compete in this year’s Accu-Stats’ “Make-It-Happen” One-Pocket Invitational. They are:
• Efren Reyes Defending “One-Pocket Champion”
• Shane Van Boening #1 Ranked U.S. Player
• Jayson Shaw 2016 Player of the Year
• Alex Pagulayan 2016 DCC “All-Around Champion”
• Billy Thorpe 2017 DCC “One-Pocket Champion”
• Josh Roberts Top echelon One-Pocket specialist

This four-day event will again be staged at Sandcastle Billiards in Edison, New Jersey in the Aramith/Simonis TV Arena. These events only work because supporters like you purchase “Make-It-Happen” packages which finance the entire production. As always, 100% of the support money goes into the event. Accu-Stats takes nothing.

The six players’ airfare and lodging are taken care of, and there are no entry fees. Usually, players are out of pocket about $2,000 at most pro events after paying for their airfare, lodging, and entry fees. At our “Make-It-Happen” events, the players get a free ride . . . LIKE THEY DESERVE! They only have to focus on pocketing $1,000 for each win.

All races will be to four games on a 9’ Diamond Pro-Am Table with Simonis 860 Cloth and Aramith Balls. The round-robin format has everybody playing everybody else. Every match is of “finals” caliber. After playing five matches each, the two players with the best won-lost record will advance to the finals for the title and another payday.

Every match is played in the TV arena. Whether you are there live, watching live on the Internet, viewing DVDs, or logging on to Vimeo, you won’t miss a single match. Each one is covered in its entirety with our legendary expert commentators Bill Incardona and Danny DiLiberto.

Accu-Stats needs your support to “Make It Happen”. We are not asking for donations or sponsorships. We’re offering a bundle of products and services with a retail value in excess of $500 at a special price of $300. You may even share in the $1,000 “Won-Lost Challenge” prize being awarded to the two supporters who predict the most winning matches.

Go to www.accu-stats.com for more information and see what you’ll get by supporting this event. Don’t hesitate to call me personally at 973-838-7089. You can “Make It Happen”.

Where Does Your $300 Go?

In addition to the prize money, Accu-Stats covers each player’s travel and lodging expenses. They incur no entry fee costs either. Our professional production crew is flown in for the Internet viewing and recording. Accu-Stats provides shuttle service for the contestants as well as the attendees at no charge. And let’s not forget the value of the products that YOU receive. Considering all of these expenses, the budget for this event is over $40,000 (and a bargain at that!). None of the money go to Accu-Stats. It all goes to the production of the event. And THAT’s why we need your support.


What Do You Get For Your $300?

1. All 16 DVDs from this event. ($320 retail).
2. 50% off all other Accu-Stats DVDs from sign-up until June 30, 2017.
3. Free “Live Pay-Per-View” Internet airing for you or someone else ($60 retail).
4. A commemorative shirt, mug, or “Play Your Best 8-Ball” book ($20 retail).
5. An original 8” x 10” group photo autographed by the six players (priceless!).
6. “Shout Outs” on the air.
7. A listing of your name in the closing credits of each DVD.
8. At least two supporters will share $1,000 in our “Won-Lost Record” Challenge.
We realize that most of you will not attend the LIVE event. Yet, if you choose to be there, you’ll have free VIP seating too. ($160 retail)
A credit card or check is needed as your commitment, and remember, you can always change your mind before the event begins. Contact me personally to sign on or if you have any questions. I’d love to talk to you.

Man, what a great write-up, Mr. Incardona! I can't wait to see who comes out on top. There's quite a mixture of talent in this one.

Let the games begin! :happydance::happydance::happydance:

Also, add pocket mics. Sound adds quality to the production.

I love the format and everything about this. If I was pat I may just cut the paragraph about the players costs being covered. I think it's especially awkward when he says "as they deserve", no no, they are the best players in the world, they deserve far more than that. To put the dollar amount in there is weird too, like how small time are pool players to potential spectators that may not know better. 2k sounds like peanuts, and it is. Like would they say this at a tennis event... "players are put up in a luxury hotel" lol. But I think it's great the event does that don't get me wrong, I just don't think it should be part of the marketing to spectators (to players market that stuff all you want). Great event though and stuff like this has got to be commended.

Pat wants to make it clear to potential supporters of the MIH events that this is a true invitational, so no player has any out of pockets costs. With the exception of the Mosconi Cup, that is usually not the case. $2K is not peanuts to a player that has to spend that every time he travels to a tournament. Fans should be made aware of that so they realize how important it is when a promoter picks up the tab.
