T9B Amateur UK 10-Ball Championships
It's that time of the year again when we find out who is going to be the T9B UK Amateur 10-Ball champion of 2014. From the successful Switch Tournaments and popular demand, this should be a great event for 10-Ball, the game of no luck!!
We are now half way through 2014 and again it has so far been a massive success, with new sponsors on board enhancing opportunities for Total9Ball players.
The UK 10-Ball Championship looks to be a cracker. Mark Parker and Phil Wildman have been working very hard behind the scenes to provide you the players with tournaments that YOU want! We do try to cater for everyone. 9-Ball, 10-Ball, Handicaps, No Handicaps, Low Entry Fee, High Entry Fee, Pros, Amateurs, Rookies and the best value overall without a doubt is the 2x Double Chance format, where you can get into the prize money twice!!! This can enable you to have a chance to take over 10x your entry fee!
THE 2014 World Cup of Pool will be taking place at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth from 23rd to 28th September. Following four years of the event in Manila and then a successful return to the UK in London last year, the event will now play out in the vibrant maritime city on England’s south coast.
Now in its ninth year, the World Cup of Pool features 32 two-player teams from around the world battling it out for a $250,000 prize fund. The defending champions are the Philippines who will be among the favourites to claim a record-breaking fourth World Cup.
Packed with some of the best players in the world, there will be plenty of teams in with a great chance to lift the coveted title, including two sides from the host nation.

Amateur Event 7 - Wildman Back In Form
Total9Ball was back at the St Albans Hurricane Room this weekend for the 7th edition of the ten event Amateur Series. 27 players made the trip through the rain to Hertfordshire on Saturday 19th July 2014. Again there was an extremely strong field of players battling for the T9B glassware. It was very hard to pick a favourite for the event with Courtney Symons, Del Sim, Dave Evans, Elliott Sanderson, Mark Parker, Martin Correira, Neil Margossian, Phil Wildman, Tom Staveley and Zoltan Kojsza in the field of players. It was also great to see pool champions from years ago Ant Ginn and Gareth Esprit in attendance and in the mix for the title.
Matches began at 10.30, as usual all players were given two chances in this event. If a player was to remain unbeaten throughout the event the jackpot of Ł660 would be won.
Phil Wildman's day began very well with two 7v4 victories against Neil Margossian and new player to Total9Ball Jason Rosser. Brian Cassidy appeared to be in good form, a 7v1 result against Total9Ball's most successful player Courtney Symons and a 7v3 scoreline against Darian George proved that. The current T9B rankings leader Dave Evans also made the perfect start with two wins, the first over Wayne Rooke 7v2, Dave was however pushed all the way in his second match as he battled hard to a 7v6 win over Neil Margossian. Del Sim dropped just 5 racks across his two first round matches against Ken Ng and Zoltan Kojsza as he advanced to the last 32. Mark Hughes also recorded two win results against Panios Roules 7v3 and Shakz Islam 7v6.
Pin-Yi Ko wins CSI Invitational 10-Ball Championship
Pin-Yi Ko defeated his younger brother Ping-Ching Ko 11-9 in an all Taiwanese final to win the CSI Invitational 10-Ball Championship on Sunday night at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The first order of business for Sunday was to determine the final two players who would join Pin-Yi Ko and Dennis Orcollo in the single elimination bracket. Both groups C & D held three players who could figure into the decision as to who would win the group.
Group C could have gone to a three way tie if Efren Reyes defeated Ralf Souquet. Souquet did away with that thought quickly when he took a quick 5-0 lead over the Magician. Reyes at least made the match competitive, but Souquet won the match 9-4 to leave the Ping-Chung Ko/John Morra match to determine the group winner. That match was a tight one. Morra held an early 4-1 lead, but the younger of the Ko brothers fought back and took the lead at 7-6. Morra was running out to tie the score at 7-7 when he missed a 10-ball and that was the beginning of the end for the young Canadian star. Ko won the match 9-7 and joined his brother in the single elimination bracket.
Friday August 15th, Thurston Rotterdam will open its doors for the 6th edition of the Longoni Benelux Open, with the annual €10.000 guaranteed prize fund.
Participants from all over Europe will venture to Rotterdam for a spectacular long weekend of 10ball. No less than six world champions will show their skills on the baize: freshly crowned Niels ‘The Terminator’ Feijen, Hall-of-Famer ‘The Kaiser’ Ralf Souquet, Daryl Peach, Karl Boyes, Stephan Cohen, Huidji See and who knows which ‘big guns’ will still show up.
The event offers something for everybody, pros, advanced amateurs and beginners. Better yet, this is your chance to play against a pro. Every participant can re-enlist, should he or she be eliminated from a qualification round. There is prize money for the pros and even a bonus for the best lady and the best junior of the event. Since there are already 17 ladies on the entry list, we have decided to organise the Ladies Side Event.
Apart from the event itself, world port Rotterdam offers plenty of waterfront sightseeing, good food, terraces, shopping and a vibrant nightlife. So, make a city trip to Rotterdam for the 2014 Longoni Benelux Open. It’s a win/ win situation.

Sunday Golden - The Road to St Albans
I hope you saw the title for this email... Yes that’s right, after 4 very successful years of running Saturday events, T9B are now in a position to offer SUNDAY comps at various clubs in the South. This is great news for all players as it's extra comps for our regular players, but also means those of you itching to play but can’t due to work commitments on Saturdays now have the opportunity to compete in some of the best events in the UK.
We are now half way through our 2013/14 Amateur Season and again it has this far been a massive success, with new sponsors on board enhancing opportunities for Total9Ball players.
This new Sunday series looks to be a cracker. Mark Parker and Phil Wildman have been working very hard behind the scenes to provide you, the players, with a new 4 event series and a Grand Final at the end. Although we feel we have already created the best format to hit the UK (2x double chance) in this series we have not only decided to mix up the formats but also the way players can qualify for the Grand Finals to keep everyone in with a chance at each of the four qualifying events and also the venues.
FOLLOWING HIS string of magnificent performances in capturing the WPA World 9 Ball Championship in Doha, Holland’s Niels Feijen has put himself in prime position to make his tenth appearance in the PartyPoker Mosconi Cup this December.
There are three automatic spots available on Team Europe drawn from three separate rankings and the 37 year-old from the Hague heads two of those following his 13 -10 win over Austria’s Albin Ouschan.
Compatriot Nick Van den Berg is on top of the Euro Tour ranking while Feijen heads the ‘World’ list and the ‘Combined Ranking’ – a combination of the other two lists.
