What are the dates and times EST?
The dates are Mon. 3/22 through Mon. 3/29. I do not know the times. It's a shame that the last 3 days of this CLP event are the same as the 3-day Gorst/Bergman match. But there is a 5-hour (edited) time difference between the 2 venues, so maybe they won't overlap too much.

Think I'd rather watch Gorst/Bergman. No strange formats, no-short races made for tv and some real stakes!

Josh Filler has tested positive and is being replaced by Ralph Souquet. I’m not sure if Pia is still playing or not.

Well, Session 2 of Day 1 of the CLP event today took about 7 hours. On the 3 days of the Gorst/Bergman match (in Peoria), the second session of the CLP event is scheduled to start at 1 pm on Sat. and noon on Sun. and Mon. (Peoria time), whereas the Gorst/Bergman match is scheduled to start at 5 pm. That means the two events will probably have a significant overlap on each of those 3 days.

[if I have the times right]

A controlling document like this one from the PGA Tour (2017-18) is needed. It would help avoid this mess with provisions like:

1) Defining an appropriate size, shape, permissible location on the clothing and a maximum total number of logos on the clothing for all sponsorships.

2) Create a list of categories under which sponsorship is not allowed (in the case of the PGA Tour it is tobacco, spirits, beer and wine, casinos and gambling (they can use the name of a resort but not the word casino, so Foxwoods Resort is fine, Foxwoods Casino is not). Pool could have a completely different list and might very well allow casinos.

3) The PGA Tour, to protect the deal with FedEx (The FedEx Cup), banned sponsorship deals with direct competitors such as DHL and UPS. That is more tenable than a cue maker banning sponsorships from other cue makers because the players don't "use" a DHL product to make their living, like a pool player uses his/her preferred cue and equipment.

So, germane to the issue regarding Predator, a rule for Predator-branded events could be:

While players are permitted to have endorsement deals with competing cue manufacturers and to use those cues in Predator events, their logos may not be present on the player's clothing while he/she is "on the floor" either for practice or competition at Predator events. (Basically, say that they CAN'T wear the logo of the competitor, but don't try to mandate what they MUST wear). That is more in line with the PGA keeping competing brands out of the public eye to support FedEx but players certainly aren't mandated to wear FedEx logos on their clothes.

That would require pool have a players organization...so somebody else can get a piece of the pie.

Niels Feijen has a Longoni Cues patch on, is he special or was there another reason some players dropped out?
