So looking at the bracket the remainder of the day should be:

7:00 Kazakis vs Barcus
9:00 SVB vs Souto
11:00 Garcia vs Thorpe

So this is WPA sanctioned yet Thorpe is playing. Guess it wasn't a year or longer ban (y)

I see the Fillers are sitting this one out until they get their athlete's visas so they don't wind up like some of the Pinoys.

It is nice to have these events with so many players.
Although 5th through 16th place will likely lose money, especially if they are staked.

Many "oldies" are back
Michaela Tabb returns after long absence
JS626 and the oldest player Parica are back.
Looks like Karl Boyes no show :D

Surprised they won't be streaming the battle of ex World 10 winners Kaci v Little Ko at 1130 EST

Awesome tournament!
Big names coming back to competition: Ko brothers, Taipei players, Amalia Matas the most recent eurotour female sensation, etc.
I love it!

Any idea why the bracket shows Kaci with a bye in the first round but they streamed him vs Fedor?

Billy Thorpe having received a 2-year ban and allowed to play only 3 months since? Well, good for him, but that's a disgrace. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against a player personally, but if WPA was trying to follow WADA code or anything like that when implying their decision, then stick to it. Otherwise, this totally devalues any future verdict of such a kind.

Surprising! No visa needed for business or vacation for up to 90 days for Germans. Pinoys need a Visa for any travel to the USA I am fairly certain.

Amazing, they changed the rule mid series so that the 10 don't count on the break. Some progress after all. (y)

This is a wonderful field, and most importantly, it signals the re-entry of many of the top Asians into competition. Pool is a far better sport when all the top Asians are in the mix.

I am inclined to suggest that anybody with Fargo of less than 770 is dead money in this field, but I'll be glad if one or more of those players proves me wrong by finishing in the top 8.

Good luck to all the players in their pursuit of excellence and a handsome payday.
