Matchroom Pool has today launched its own World Rankings as well as Team Europe and Team USA rankings for the partypoker Mosconi Cup.

The Matchroom Pool World Rankings consist of major events from around the globe, while the separate European and USA Team rankings include all World Ranking events as well as additional events from across Europe and USA respectively.

For Team Europe, the top three players on the European Ranking will automatically qualify for Alex Lely’s team. On the American Ranking, the top two players will join Jeremy Jones’ roster for their title defence in London this December.

World Rankings
The Matchroom Pool World Rankings are split into six tiers based on a number of factors including total prize money, added money and tournament format. The Matchroom Pool World Rankings will be used as guidance when inviting players for World Cup of Pool and World Pool Masters, and as one of the rankings to determine seedings for the US Open 9-Ball from 2021.

A full list of events and the rankings so far can be found here:

A points breakdown of points awarded per event can be downloaded here:

Matchroom Pool has acquired the rights in perpetuity to host the World 9-Ball Championship from 2020 in a ground-breaking agreement with the WPA.

The World 9-Ball Championship joins Matchroom Pool’s portfolio of major events and will benefit from increased prize money and global TV coverage. The 2020 World 9-Ball Championship will be staged from Wednesday, October 14 until Sunday, October 18 at a venue to be announced in due course.

Matchroom Pool previously staged the World 9-Ball Championship from 1999 to 2008 and will apply its world-renowned promotion, TV production and arena staging to this prestigious event.

Matchroom Sport Chairman and BCA Hall of Fame promoter Barry Hearn said: “This is great news for pool fans and pool players all over the world. We are making a big push on 9-ball pool and we’ve had a lot of success over the last 12 months, particularly with the US Open which was sensational in Las Vegas. But this will be even bigger for the world of pool.

“We’ll have 128 players, prize money will go up, the event will be open to men and women and it will be televised all over the world. This is a major addition to Matchroom Pool and I think a real huge benefit to pool players and pool fans all around the world.

Lely To Captain Team Europe

Alex Lely has been appointed as the new captain of Team Europe at the partypoker Mosconi Cup, with Karl Boyes as his vice-captain. Europe will be looking to regain the Cup at Alexandra Palace, London this December 1st-4th after suffering back-to-back defeats against USA.

Dutchman Lely returns to the helm having been European captain in 2008 and 2009. In his first Cup as captain he led Europe to an 11-5 victory in Malta before losing 11-7 to USA the following year.

“It is very exciting,” said Lely of his appointment. “It has been ten years since I was last the captain and that is a long time in the context of the Mosconi Cup. It has grown to be so big in that time and it is getting better every year. With USA winning it the last two years, the Mosconi Cup has sparks once again.

“We have a big pool of talent in Europe. We have two wildcards so together with Karl Boyes we will need to make the right choices to compliment the three players who qualify through the rankings. There will be a list of usual suspects and new contenders we have to consider. One new contender to consider would have to be Fedor Gorst, who came really close to making the team last year and is now World Champion.

Buckley Starts 2020 in Style

Report by: Matt Hawthorn
Photos by: Shaun Berrisford

On Saturday 4th January 2020 the 24 highest ranked Cyclop Pool Series participants were invited back to Rileys Sports Bar Solihull for our series Grand Final. This event would see our highest pay-outs of the series, with a prize fund of £1600 broken down as follows : winner £600, R.Up £300, Semis £150, Quarters £100. Live streaming, and commentary, came courtesy of Extreme Q Sport TV. All players were polled beforehand, with the option of playing either 9 Ball or 10 Ball on the day. The majority voted for 10 Ball. All matches were a race to 7, subject to handicaps, played to a modified double elimination format with the top eight ranked players seeded and given a bye through to the second round.

The 8 seeded qualifiers were (ranking points in brackets) : Luke Garland (149), Kev Simpson (145), Benji Buckley (128), Alan Coton (127), Ian McCormik (114), Andy Lacey (109), Shane Conroy (108) and Ryan Coton (103).

The following sixteen players would enter the competition in the first round: Elliott Sanderson (95), Carl Weaver (93), Raffy Gonzales (92), Daryl Garland (92), Kris Kovacs (92), Steve Weaver (88), Keith Walkerdine (88), Kurt Weaver (87), Andy Carter (87), Chris Seville (84), Chris Parker (84), Mark Eardley (83), Ryan Wissett (74), Danny Douane (74), Shaun Berrisford (69) and Romy Roque (63). Unfortunately, Chris Seville and Romy Roque were unable to attend but their spots were filled by the 25th and 26th ranked players, Alan Morgan and Matt Hawthorn.

Tiger Products Signs Darren “Dynamite” Appleton as an Ambassador for Tiger Tips!

Tiger Products is excited to announce its signing of BCA Hall of Famer, Darren “Dynamite” Appleton as an ambassador for Tiger Tips!

“I’m absolutely delighted and excited to be working with Tiger. I think it’s something that has been in the works for many years and now seemed like the perfect time to join forces,” said Appleton.

For over 20 years, Tiger tips have set world records, helped win world championships and been the most used amongst professionals. All proudly made in the USA, Tiger tips continue to be the epitome of what Tiger Products stands for: Craftsmanship, innovation and technology.

“I started out with Everest tips many years ago and loved the consistency of the tip. It never really lost its control, even after many months of use. Unlike most tips I’ve used over the years,” Appleton said. “The Sniper hits so easy as well, so I’m looking forward to playing with these tips in the future and actually think it’s a perfect fit for my style of play.”

“We are very excited to have Darren on board with the Tiger Team. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. His resume speaks for itself and his overall generosity and kindness are why we feel he will be a great addition to the Tiger Team and the perfect representative for our Tiger tips,” said Tiger CEO, Tony Kalamdaryan.

  Masters 2020 — Odds and Predictions

Masters 2020 — Odds and Predictions

The 2019/20 snooker season has come to an end, and when the players return to the green baize in the new year, the countdown to the most significant tournament in the snooker calendar — the World Championship that starts in April — will begin. But before that, we have several top-tier competitions in January.

Whether you’re a casual fan or a seasoned snooker player, the Masters’ tournament will keep you on the edge of your seat with fantastic gameplay and incredible action. The Masters is the second leg of the Triple Crown and an event that has great importance for those participating. Who will take the big prize home? Read on to discover our latest predictions.


Once Ronnie O’Sullivan pulled out of the Masters, Judd Trump became an instant odds-on favourite to win the title. William Hill has the 30-year-old as a title favourite with the odds of 3.25. Trump is also the favourite in Bet365 that’s offering 3.30 odds.

If you’re thinking about betting on him, you should check out bonus offers at https://freebets.uk/. The site lists enticing offers from all the top operators in the business. One such offer may not increase your chances of winning, but it can certainly boost your prize pot.

After winning last year’s Masters, Trump went on to win the World Title and finally delivered on his vast potential. However, a shocking defeat to Nigel Bond in the UK Championships suggests he remains inconsistent and that he may not be a safe bet as the 3.25 indicate.

The 2010 World Championship winner and the fifth-ranked player in the world Neil Robertson is close behind Trump at 5.00 odds in William Hill. He’s also the second choice in Bet365, with 5.00 odds. Robertson missed this tournament last year, as he dropped out of the world’s top 16 and failed to qualify. He quickly rediscovered his touch, though, and made four finals appearances throughout the year.

  Saudi Arabia To Host World Cup Of Pool
Posted by admin
on Tuesday, December 24 2019 @ 10:50:11 UTC  (257 reads)

Kingdom Adds 9-Ball to Grass Roots Sports Portfolio

Saudi Arabia has announced it will host the 2020 World Cup of Pool, which will run from the 23rd-28th June 2020 in Jeddah.

Sanctioned by the WPA, the World Cup of Pool will present 32 two-player teams from 31 countries with players selected by qualifying criteria and qualification events which will take place globally. As host nation, Saudi Arabia will enter two teams to be selected by the Saudi Arabian Billiards and Snooker Federation.

The World Cup of Pool has been an established major event in 9-ball since 2006 and adopts a straight-knockout format. Matches are race to 7 in the first two rounds, race to 9 in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, and race to 11 in the final.

Austrian pair Albin Ouschan and Mario He are defending champions having won the trophy for a second time in 2019. Previous winners of the World Cup of Pool include Philippines, China and USA.

The newly formed partnership with Matchroom Pool kick starts a ten-year agreement, throughout which the Kingdom aims to raise the profile of pool at grass roots level by way of coaching visits, player appearances and school seminars.

Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki AlFaisal Al Saud, Chairman of the GSA, said: “The 2020 World Cup of Pool is another significant step for the Kingdom, that showcases our to desire to open up as welcoming hosts to a diverse mix of world-class sporting events, while also offering the people of Saudi Arabia a chance to be inspired to play a vast array of sports all year-round.
