The World Pool Masters returns to Victoria Stadium, Gibraltar next March 29-31 with more players, more matches and an even bigger prize fund.

Tickets will be on sale from midday (Gibraltarian time) on Tuesday, October 2nd.

For the first time there are now eight pre-determined spots in the World Pool Masters, with a further 15 players invited by tournament promoter Matchroom Multi Sport and the final member of the field selected by you, the fans.

The eight pre-determined players will be seeded straight into the last 16, with the remaining 16 invited players – including the Fans’ Choice – contesting the preliminary round.

Mark Gray - 2018 GB 9 Ball Tour - UK Open - Main Event Winner

Mark Gray Wins Massive UK Open Tournament Prize

The penultimate GB9 event of 2018 was upon us, and some of the finest pool players in the UK and Europe made their way to Telford for the UK Open. With Mosconi Cup ranking points up for grabs, as well as a guaranteed £10,000 prize fund, everything was to play for.

Early shocks were in abundance, with the open draw format meaning some big hitters battling it out early on. Benji Buckley edged out Tim De Ruyter, over from the Netherlands for his first GB9 event, with a tense 9-8 result. Wojciech Szewczyk brought his unique brand of cool and calm to dispatch Yorkshire legend Darren Appleton. Appleton wasn’t at the top of his game after a difficult schedule over the last 12 months, but Szewczyk was ruthless in his performance. Northern Masters Challenge 2 winner Stephen Slater also showed his bottle dispatching debutant Ali Asgar Merchant in a final rack decider and James Jack, fresh from some recent high profile English 8-ball wins, took the biggest scalp in his 9 ball career with victory over Dave Nelson.

Van Boening conquers Europe

After an enormously thrilling final match from both players at the Dynamic Billard Leende Open 2018, Shane van Boening (USA) defeated Eklent Kaci (ALB) with a heartbreaking 9:8.

The match was a hell of a thriller. Kaci started out furiously and won the first 5 consecutive racks. Van Boening was a bit unlucky and Kaci capitalised from all mistakes without any merci. Somehow van Boening managed to turn the tide in the match. He got to 1:6 and then got some momentum. He took three racks in a row before he allowed Kaci another rack in his account. When the score was 4:7 from van Boening’s point of view, he again shifted into overdrive and got to 7:7. At that time, he went for his timeout. He came back and the Albanian got to the hill first, winning rack 15 to make the score 8:7 for Kaci. Then van Boening broke and ran rack 16 to make the match a hill-hill affair. It was Kaci’s break in the deciding rack 17. He executed a nearly perfect break shot and had the 1-ball and the 5-ball down with a perfect layout and an easy shot on the 2-ball. However, he pocketed the 2-ball but fell short in position for the 3-ball. Because of that, he could not cut the 3-ball in but went for a bank shot. He pocketed the 3-ball over the bank and put the cue ball behind the 7-ball. The 4-ball was completely hidden. What a drama for Kaci. He went for his jump stick and tried to jump the 4-ball in but missed it. Van Boening got to the table and cleared all balls remaining, winning the final match of the Dynamic Billard Leende Open 2018 by a whisker with 9:8 after a brilliant final.

„I always believe in myself“, said van Boening after the final match when asked about the situation when he was trailing 0:5 and 1:6. „I worked on my mental side and I practice a lot. I try to stay calm in those situations and it helped me a lot today“. „Coming to Europe and winning the Euro-Tour as the first American really makes me proud“, van Boening added.

Mägi made his corrections

Mägi was second not only on the last stage, but second in the last years Riga stage as well. Similarly, to the before mentioned stages Mägi got some serious opposition this time too. In his semi final he faced Timofey Sereda (BLR) and he managed to nearly escape when the final score was 8:7. Everything seemed to be under control in the final as well as Mägi got a comfortable 5:0 lead against Joonas Saska (EST). However, Saska did not wanted to follow Mägi’s plan and the comeback started which lead to 6:5 for Mägi. Regardless of Saska’s serious fight back Mägi did claim the win by 8:6.

Another semi-finalist was Vilius Ebbert-Schulte from Lithuania who lost to Saska by 5:8.

After the third stage the men’s overall ranking is very intriguing as the top eight is within eight points with Mark Mägi first, Joonas Saska second and Pijus Labutis third.

I'm on my way to the GB 9 Ball Tour in Telford to set up a small stall and fit American Pool cue tips and meet up with all the regular players. I'm especially excited as there is a £10,000 prize fund at this event, so £100 of prize money per player, which is great odds in my book.

I'll also be running the 10-Ball Break and Dish competition which has over £2,000 in prize money if I remember rightly, so all-in-all, a pretty cash heavy weekend in store for some very lucky players who signed up for this event.

Inaugural Open Disability 9-ball Championship is a huge success

Photography - ©Steve Rutter - World Snooker Coach

Over the weekend of 11-12 August 2018, the Wheelchair Cuesports Academy opened it’s doors to cuesport players of all disabilities for the inaugural Kamui Open Disability 9-ball Championship. It was the first event of it’s kind, hosted by the British Wheelchair Pool Players Association.

Before matches got underway, everyone who was in attendance observed a minute’s applause for Mick Langley, who sadly passed away shortly before the event took place. Langley was the gold medalist in the wheelchair snooker event at the Seoul Paralympic Games in 1988. The last time cue sports were included in the Paralympics.

In addition to the BWPPA tour players who entered the event, there were also two regulars from the WDBS snooker tour, Blake Munton and Josh Morrison who both impressed, and joining them was the Irish Wheelchair (English) 8-ball player Liam Casey, as well as ambulant player Dave Lango.

Casey had a tough introduction to the larger table game. He came through a hill-hill opening match against Frankie Gillen (7-6) before facing BWPPA no.1 Daniel Lee, who had earlier beaten Lango 7-2 in his first match. Lee’s experience told as he beat Casey 7-1. Grimsby’s Munton started his weekend well, with impressive performances over BWPPA tour regulars Matthew Lester (7-3) and Chris Brown (7-3). Elsewhere in the early stages recently crowned wheelchair English 8-ball Champion Dave Beaumont returned to 9-ball with a 7-3 loss to Roy Kimberley.

Tony Southern came through a tense opener, with a 7-5 win over Danny Luton. Southern followed up with an impressive 7-0 win over Morrison.

The latest installment of the inaugural Supreme Pool Series begins this Friday morning and it is the most significant yet with £13,000 going to the eventual champion - the biggest amount this year, so far, in the world of English 8 Ball Pool.

Following on from the Jason Owen Open and Strachan Cup competitions held in May and July respectively, the Supreme Masters marks the halfway point of the campaign which will culminate at the Home Leisure Direct Grand Finals in December where a record-breaking £51,000 is on offer to the last player standing.

Liam Dunster goes into this third event as the series' number 1 ranked player after back-to-back final finishes. With the Supreme Masters seeing the season debut of Blackball, his preferred ruleset, the current B.I. World Champion will surely fancy his chances. The ultra consistent Scotsman opens up his campaign against Matthew Schofield.

Last month's winner Phil Harrison begins his bid for a double by facing Darrell Whitworth, whilst event 1 champion Scott Gillespie will be looking to get back on track after a disappointing outing last time, although he has a very stern examination with fellow Scot Mark Boyle in one of the standout ties of the opening round.

Five times and reigning WEPF World Champion Mick Hill is the favourite with the bookmakers again. After looking formidable throughout at the Strachan Cup, Hill was denied by a clinical Harrison during the Semi-Finals in a match that saw him struggle to make a ball off his breaks. Mark Astbury has the unenviable task of tackling the English 8 Ball legend first up.

It will be another Supreme Pool Series tournament that can boast participation from all three of the sport's reigning World Champions. IPA World Champion and professional number 1 Ben Davies will be involved in a blockbusting all-Welsh fixture with the in-form Jordan Shepherd, who recently won the IPA European Professional title under a fortnight ago.
