WPBL Press Release - Official Rules and Player Profiles
 Posted on Wednesday, January 16 2013 @ 12:05:08 GMTby admin
Bonus Ball World Professional Billiard League

Season starts February 2013




WPBL Press Release - Official Rules

The World Professional Billiard League has finalized and released the official rules that will be used in the inaugural 2013 Bonus Ball season. Development of the rules was a culmination of input from the top international players, including world champions and hall of famers.

The game of Bonus Ball has undergone numerous changes since its inception, most notably at recent WPBL training camps. The final rulebook has taken both fans and players into consideration, simplifying the rules while making the game more challenging to play.

Minnesota Outlaw Captain Thorsten Hohmann who was significantly involved in the refinement of the rules stated “Quite honestly speaking, at first the rules of Bonus Ball seem a bit overwhelming, because a lot of it is very new to the pool world. Three pockets for each player, the sequence, target and continuation shots, and the break and shoot, but once you play a few games it starts to make sense. Every rule has a reason for existence. It’s actually a very well thought out game. The possibilities are countless. We will see a lot of creativity, suspense and emotions during the season and I can’t wait to see the WPBL in full motion!”

Larry Chiborak President and CEO of the WPBL originally created Bonus Ball in Canada, where the game was primarily played until recent years. Chiborak said “We have taken a lot of time perfecting this game, the evolution of Bonus Ball has been in the works for 20 years and with the creation of the WPBL, it will now be exposed to an international audience.”

The official rules page is now posted on the WPBL website and can be found at: wpbl.tv/rules.php

Each team consists of three core players and one alternate player who will substitute in the event that one of their teammates cannot play a match. WPBL President Larry Chiborak added, “With the addition of such talent, the depth of these teams is amazing.”

Upon being selected as an alternate, Karl Boyes stated “I’m over the moon to have joined the WPBL in Las Vegas, and to have been signed up to the Chicago Rockets is an honor in itself.” Boyes, the 2012 Guinness World Speed Pool champion, will not have an issue adjusting to the 24 second shot clock employed by the WPBL. Furthermore, he is accustomed to playing with a team as he has been a member of championship teams in both the World Team Championship as well as the Mosconi Cup.

The UK’s Chris Melling who was formerly ranked #1 in the world said “I'm really excited about playing in the WPBL it's a new challenge and I can't wait to get started.” He is the first person to have competed as a professional 8-Ball Pool, 9-Ball Pool and Snooker player at the same time. Melling will now have Bonus Ball to add to his list of billiard specialties.

Alternates have begun practicing Bonus Ball and training with their teammates. Therefore, any one of these skilled players will be prepared to step in when called upon by their team during the season.
