Someone posted this flyer for a tournament on /r/billiards:

It appears to be one of quite a few qualifier events along the east coast to go down to Florida and compete for a spot on a reality show.

Anyone ever heard of this?

PS...
Kinda unrelated, but when I googled the place the GA event is being held at, I found a hilarious forum thread about it, in case anyone is interested.

That certainly is a weird place to host an event. I've been through Ellijay many times on my bike, but never stopped at that place.

That was my first thought too. I wonder why not Atlanta? I wouldn't imagine there would be more than 3 or 4 tables in an Ellijay dive bar.

Thank you for sharing that. How interesting!

I really enjoyed the video of Tony Crosby. By golly, his British accent now has a wee bit of Southern twang mixed in it, living in Florida. I like it! :grin:

Looks like fun.
However, I could not find any up to date information on the event. There is no date on the flyer. The AmateurPoolPlayer.com web site, though it has a copyright as an LLC as of 2015, has the latest news from July 7th, 2014.

If anyone finds dated info on a 2015 event, please share.
