Just curious as I am a little confused as to what is meant by a virtual tournament. Are the players actually playing in-person matches against other competitors that live geographically close to each other in various different locations, or all together in one central location without spectators, or some kind of livestream competition in which they are individually playing matches against the ghost, kind of like the women have been doing?

This will be an online event. As we saw with The Midwest Expo yesterday, in person events in the US are a little way off still :/

This will be 32 players playing from their home/pool rooms, but NOT in person.

Best of a bad situation and better than nothing IMO :D

I enjoyed the first one. Looking forward to this. Keep up the good work.

Thanks!! This one will be a little different. More 'serious.' There is 20K up for grabs (pending full field and sponsorships)

Glad to hear. My only suggestion would be to use racking rules similar to what they do in Asia for 10 ball to ensure no pattern racking in the future.

So what is the actual 10-ball format if they are not playing heads up in-person matches against each other?

The 1 and the 10 ball are going to be fixed. We are then going to take the 2-9 balls and put them in a bag and draw them out 1 by 1. How they come out will be the FIXED pattern all players MUST rack by every single game. We will give them this pattern around a week before the event starts so they can try to practice with it.

We are going to releasing more information on the Cue it up podcast Facebook page in the coming days. That is not a great answer, but we are ironing a few very small details still.

That works too.
