SVB's match is the only one not on the first day, besides Shuff's too? Odd scheduling.

It looks like SVB's day might be a misprint. He will be on the TV table (#1) and the time fits OK after the previous match. It will put it fairly late at night in Europe -- starting at 11PM.

Yes, they must have changed it because it says Sunday when I look at it.

As of now I plan to go for the final three days and give a play by play on those matches. I'll keep you posted.

I like this the seeding by Matchroom here like their other events- Seeding is the way to go and what most sports practise
No surprises of top players playing each other very early in 1st round and most matches are top players playing “dead money “ :)
Which means Day 1 is like a rehearsal practice day to the top players and nothing to watch so folks can still enjoy their Easter Sunday
I also like ref rack from final 16 and 9 on spot

BREAK RULES
- Players must use a forceful break.
- A racking template will be used by the section referee during the Double elimination stage of the tournament.
- Balls will be hand racked by the referee from the last 16 stage.
- Balls will be racked with the 9-ball on the spot during all stages of the tournament.
- Players can break from anywhere behind the head string.

40-SECOND SHOT CLOCK
- A 40-second shotclock will be in operation throughout the US Open 9-ball Championship.
- Each player will have x1 40-second extension per rack.

DRAW AND SEEDING
- A seeded draw will be conducted by Matchroom Multi Sport later this month and streamed on Facebook.

"Players must use a forceful break" - How is this enforced?
