SALUC SA AND MATCHROOM: PRESS RELEASE

Matchroom Multi Sport is excited to announce that SALUC, the blue-chip billiard ball manufacturer from Callenelle, Belgium have renewed their agreement to provide their world-class Aramith balls at all Matchroom’s pool events over the coming three years.

The new three-year agreement continues a long-standing relationship between the two organisations that goes back to the 1990’s.

There are four events scheduled for 2019, including the first year with Matchroom at the helm of the US Open. In what promises to the biggest year yet for pool, Aramith Balls will be seen by more viewers and have a bigger social media reach than ever before.

Commented Yves Bilquin, COO SALUC SA said, "We are so proud to renew this long-standing and successful partnership with Matchroom and to be the Official and Exclusive Ball Supplier to such prestigious events as the World Pool Masters, the World Cup of Pool, the Mosconi Cup, and the US Open!

“The world’s best players must get the ultimate conditions. This can only be achieved with Aramith balls, the choice of the modern players but also of the leisure players thanks to its life-span exceeding several times that of the average polyester and phenolic-like resin balls.”

Emily Frazer, COO of Matchroom Multi Sport said, “We are thrilled to be continuing our long-standing relationship with Aramith across our pool events. We pride ourselves in delivering world-class 9-ball events and by using Aramith balls means we know we have the best equipment.

“As a result of over two decades of this partnership between Matchroom and SALUC, the Duramith TV Pro-Cup balls with their unique 2-half-circle design, have become industry standard and we look forward to many more years working with SALUC across the Matchroom Pool events.”

The calendar starts with the World Pool Masters from 29-31 March in Gibraltar and that is followed by the US Open at the Mandalay Bay – 21- 26 April. The World Cup of Pool follows in June in Asia and November sees the 26th annual Mosconi Cup which again takes place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Joshua Filler - Germany

Germany’s Joshua Filler wins his first World 9-ball Championship with a hard fought 13-10 win over the Philippines Carlo Biado.

Story and Photos By Ted Lerner
WPA Media Officer

Yesterday in Doha, Joshua Filler and his wife, Pia, celebrated their one year wedding anniversary. Today, Filler presented his bride and biggest fan the best gift he’ll probably ever give her; a world title.

Playing in his typical fast and loose fashion, the 21 year old German battled his way to a hard fought 13-10 win over the Philippines Carlo Biado to win his very first WPA World 9-ball Championship in front of several hundred fans at the Al Arabi Sports Club in Doha.

g a finals scrap as fans have witnessed in many years, with both players putting in superb performances under the searing pressure. Biado was trying to become the first man since Earl Strickland 27 years ago to win back to back world 9-ball titles. The players exchanged the lead several times and the outcome was in doubt until the last quarter of the match, when Filler did what all champions do: he turned on the after burners to claim pool’s most coveted crown.

With the victory Filler’s future is about as bright as it could possibly get. He had already won the brutally tough China Open in 201, and followed that up later that same year with a Mosconi Cup MVP where he even potted the very last ball to seal Europe’s victory. He possesses surreal talent and plays with a confidence that is palpable to even casual fans. The phrase, ‘Sky’s the limit,’ is hardly a cliché when talking about Filler.

Carlo Biado - Philippines

It’s Biado vs. Van Boening, Filler vs. Kazakis As The 2018 World 9-ball Championship Heads To Final Day

By Ted Lerner
WPA Media Officer

Sir Henry Royce, the maker of the famed motorcars, Rolls Royce, once said, “Take the best that exists and make it better. Accept nothing nearly right or good enough.”

Royce’s creed of excellence could very well be applied to the four greats who grabbed their semi-finals spots Wednesday at the Al Arabi Sports Club in Doha on the penultimate day of 2018 World 9-ball Championship. On a day of championship 9-ball pool of surreal quality, Carlo Biado, Shane Van Boening, Joshua Filler and Alexander Kazakis all wouldn’t take no for an answer, all reached for greatness, all excelled beyond the rest.

The four superstars now head into the final day on Thursday with an equal chance of entering pool’s pantheon of greats. Biado, who won here last year, is already there, and will hope to become the first player since Earl Strickland 27 years ago to win back to back titles. But first the Filipino will have to match wits with the USA’s Shane Van Boening, who seems destined to finally snap off the big one.

In the other semi-final, young German hot shot Filler will look to fulfill a dream many thought he would one day reach, but perhaps not at just 21 years old. But to get there the fast and loose playing Filler will have to battle through Greek workhorse Kazakis, who simply never knows how to quit. Both race to 11, alternate break semis will be played simultaneously beginning at 11am Doha time(GMT +3). The race to 13 final will break off at 3pm local time.

Despite his soft spoken and humble nature, Biado has to be the favorite of the final four, if only slightly, due to several factors; he knows what it takes to reach the mountain top, he plays under the radar, and he is playing the best pool of his career. In the round of 16 match that began the day, the 37 year old Biado came up against 2005 World 9-ball Champion Wu Jiaqing. The pair dueled for 90 minutes, breaking and running numerous racks. But when Wu scratched while down 9-8, the champ did what champs do; he closed the door and won a hard fought battle, 11-9.

The Filipino then came up against Taiwan’s rising player, Wu Kun Lin, who had disposed of Finland’s Petri Makkonen earlier. These two had history and it was to Biado’s favor for Wu was the very player the Filipino handily beat in last year’s semi-final on his way to the title. The result Wednesday was nearly identical. Firing on all cylinders Biado streaked out to a commanding 6-0 lead and never looked back, winning easily 11-4.

RECORD FIGURES MAKE 2018 THE MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR EVER FOR PARTYPOKER MOSCONI CUP

USA’s dramatic partypoker Mosconi Cup victory was witnessed by record viewers around the world and the highest live gate in the tournament’s history with close to 2,500 fans packed into Alexandra Palace, London each night as America defeated Europe 11-9 to win back the famous trophy.

Shown live by networks in over 130 countries worldwide, the drama of the 2018 partypoker Mosconi Cup was enjoyed by viewers across the globe. In USA, Central and South America and on the Indian Subcontinent the tournament’s partnership with Facebook meant fans were able to enjoy a free live stream, which was seen by over 2million people. The continued growth of pool’s biggest tournament was further evidenced online, where the partypoker Mosconi Cup’s digital footprint continued to expand, reaching and engaging with more fans than ever before.

Already, tickets for the 2019 partypoker Mosconi Cup - to take place at Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas from November 25-28 - have seen their highest ever opening-week sales, with Gold seating sold out. As a result, there will be an increase in both win and appearance fees for the 2019 partypoker Mosconi Cup with both winners’ and runners-up prize money increased by 50%.

Emily Frazer, Chief Operation Officer of promoters Matchroom Multi Sport, said: “After our most successful and entertaining year at the partypoker Mosconi Cup, it only felt right to reward the players with an increase in prize money by 50%.

“This year’s event reached our highest live attendance numbers, television and live stream viewership and is now ranked as the best event in this sport – and therefore it should be taken to the next level. The atmosphere was electric at the Alexandra Palace and we have our 2,500 fans to thank for this and we only hope to recreate this at the Mandalay Bay from November 25th.

“Pool is in a great place right now, and let’s make sure everyone knows it!”

Tickets for the 2019 partypoker Mosconi Cup are available now at www.mosconicup.com. Prices start at $48 per session with season tickets at $161 silver. Gold seating is now sold out. VIP Platinum packages are available priced $225 per day or $950 for all four days and include a breakfast buffet, unlimited drinks, VIP seating in the front three rows and much more.
