Betfred Donate £40,000 To Jessie MayOh wow...

World Championship title sponsor Betfred has donated a massive £40,000 to Jessie May Children's Hospice at Home, to mark 40 years of snooker at the Crucible.

At the start of the tournament in Sheffield, Betfred pledged £200 for every century made during the 17 day event, to be rounded up to £40,000 if the total hit 80 centuries.

In fact that target of 80 was not reached but Betfred boss Fred Done generously rounded up the total anyway.

He said: “The players may not have hit 80 centuries, but the snooker on the 40th anniversary of the Crucible has been magical and so that’s why I’ve decided to donate the £40,000 to the Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home. World Snooker’s official charity do an amazing job and are a very worthy cause. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the players and everyone who works on this special tournament. I am a very proud sponsor.”

Lindsey Horton, Corporate Partnerships Officer for Jessie May, added: "This is such a wonderful donation from Betfred and we are thrilled and amazed by their generosity. The money will make a huge difference to the children and families we care for."

Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home, based in Bristol, has become World Snooker’s official charity partner for the 2016/17 season. Jessie May provides a hospice at home service for terminally ill children, offering care to families in the Bristol area.

Van Boening Endorses USA Pool League

CueSports International, Henderson, NV (May 2, 2017) – CueSports International (CSI) is excited to announce Shane Van Boening as the USA Pool League (USAPL) Player Representative.

For years, Van Boening, of South Dakota, has been the undisputed top American player, having earned five US Open 9-Ball titles, two US Open 10-Ball titles, two US Open 8-Ball titles, and a US Open One Pocket title, in addition to three World Pool Masters titles and many more.

Before becoming a U.S. champion, Van Boening, like millions of other pool enthusiasts around the world, played in pool leagues. He earned many national league titles before becoming a professional pool player.
“Pool leagues were a large part of my family’s life when I was growing up,” Van Boening said.

CueSports International founded the USAPL in 2009 to solve the inherent problems found in other leagues. It was created specifically to be “Fair and Fun for Everyone.” In the USAPL, everyone, no matter what skill level, has an equal chance of winning. The USAPL is the first league organization to use FargoRate, the most accurate and only global pool player-rating system. All league data flows into FargoRate and player ratings are recalculated daily.

“The USA Pool Lt only one of the most recognized players in the sport, he is also among the most respected. He is known not only for his great skill at the table, but also for his positive attitude, work ethic and sportsmanship. Those qualities make him an extraordinary and inspirational ambassador for USAPL.

“Shane understands the importance of amateur players and organized league play. He is a true professional and will be a great ambassador for the USA Pool League,” said Ozzy Reynolds, CSI general manager.

League is the best way for beginner and average players to have fun and fall in love with the game,” said Van Boening. “And that is good for our entire industry.”

For more information about the USAPL, visit www.playusapool.com.

CSI is dedicated to creating more choices for all players. CSI is the parent company of the BCA Pool League and the USA Pool League. CSI also produces independent events like the US Bar Table Championships, US Open 10-Ball Championship, US Open 8-Ball Championship, and much more. For more information, visit www.playcsipool.com or call CSI at 702-719-POOL.

EPBF Announces 2017 Atlantic Challenge Cup Location and Date Teams and Captains To Be Announced In Coming Weeks

The European Pocket Billiard Federation today announced the third annual Atlantic Challenge Cup will be held in Klagenfurt, Austria, 5 - 8 July, 2017. On Thursday the 4th of May, the city of Klagenfurt made an official announcement that the Atlantic Challenge Cup will be held at Sportpark Klagenfurt. Specific match times will be announced at a later date.

“With around 20 journalists and TV stations present during this announcement, the event promises to be heavily promoted,” said IBPF President David Morris. “Europe has won the first two editions between these two pool giants in 2015 and 2016, but America is determined to improve on its previous showings. They have raised the bar in youth competitions over the last few years which will enable them to send a very competitive team. Europe is also preparing to send a very strong team that is prepared to win the Cup again in 2017.”

“Europe has selected an outstanding location for the 2017 Atlantic Challenge Cup,” said BCA Chairman Chance Pack. “Playing in the Atlantic Challenge Cup is an amazing opportunity and accomplishment for players on both teams. Our players will enjoy their experience in Austria and put all their energy into capturing the 2017 Cup.”

Teams and team captains will be announced in the coming weeks.
Launched by the Billiard Congress of America and the European Pocket Billiard Federation in 2015, the Atlantic Challenge Cup pits the best of youth from Europe and America in a Mosconi Cup style event in a race to 11 with a possible 21 total matches. Six players on each team, four boys and two girls, will battle it out to see who will have the bragging rights across the Atlantic. Europe has captured the 2015 and 2016 titles.

More information can be found at atlanticchallengecup.com.

Snooker's Top Stars Target Riga

World Champion Mark Selby and defending champion Neil Robertson are among the snooker kings set to play in the 2017 Kaspersky Riga Masters.

Robertson won the world ranking event last year by beating Michael Holt in the final at the Riga Arena in Latvia. And this time he'll be defending his title against the likes of Selby, Shaun Murphy, Stuart Bingham, Barry Hawkins, Kyren Wilson, Mark Williams, Mark Allen and Jimmy White.

The matches involving Selby, Robertson and the two wild card players will be held over to the final venue in Riga. All other first round matches will take place at the Guild Hall in Preston from May 31 to June 2, with the winners going through to the final stages in the Latvian capital to do battle for the first ranking title of the 2017/18 season. The qualifiers draw and format is now available at www.worldsnooker.com

And there is increased prize money for the tournament this year, with the winner to bank £50,000 from a total of £227,000.

Earlier this month, Selby won the world title for the third time by beating John Higgins 18-15 in the final at the Crucible.

"I'm really looking forward to getting going again, and I'll be full of confidence coming off my best ever season," said the 33-year-old, who won the inaugural Riga Masters in 2014. "I have always enjoyed playing in Latvia, it's a beautiful place and the fans make us feel welcome. It will be a strong field in Riga and hopefully I can have a good run."

Tickets for all sessions of the Kaspersky Riga Masters are now available and start at just 15.60 Euros. It's a fantastic chance for snooker fans to see many of their heroes live, competing for a ranking title.
