INDUSTRY NEWS - January 2010

Pro9 receives more news than we can fit on our front page, and not all news can take pride of place with our "featured article" status, and frankly some news is less relevant to the European market, so continuing our trial period, we will be presenting it here!

Posting in this section will be locked except for admins - if you wish to discuss the news items posted here then please start a new forum thread in an appropriate section.

Cue King Promotions appoints new Chief

Trevor Haythorne has been appointed the new Chief Executive of Cue King Promotions it has been announced today. Mr. Haythorne takes up this new position on the strength of his experience and understanding of Youth Sports Development & Management.

The new Chief Executive believes in extending the existing professional player recruitment plan to the under tier of Amateur players; he stated “recruiting established American Pool Professional is great but why not have an actual plan of action for all American Pool enthusiasts? CKP has made a solid platform for development and this appointment allows the ‘Expansion Team’ to venture further beyond the UK and into new territories.”

Cue King Promotion’s principal owner Jason Lawrence also speaking to the press revealed that the American Pool Billiard promotional brand is fully committed to the well-being of business growth, through gaining excellent technical support and managerial assistance to plan its long-term sustainability. “Trevor will be strategically outlining how to achieve its (CKP’s) goals whilst bringing a sense of purpose with efficient enthusiasm in every aspect of the organisation.” explained Jason.

The appointment is not a surprise by all means and we wish Mr. Haythorne the best.

The BCA Pool League Player Rating Categories

It is less than 6 months before thousands of pool players from around the world compete in the 35th Annual BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships in Las Vegas (May 11-22, 2011), widely recognized as “The Greatest Pool Tournament in the World!”

In the summer of 2010, the BCA Pool League expanded and publicized their player rating categories to include Open, Advanced, Master and Grand Master levels. For the player’s convenience, a page is posted on the BCAPL website where all Advanced, Master and Grand Master players are listed. To view the lists visit:

www.playbca.com/Leagues/AdvancedandMasterList.aspx.

1. First select Men, Women or both.
2. Next select Masters, Grand Masters, Advanced or any combination.
3. Then click Go

Additionally, at the bottom of each list is a copy of the BCAPL rating criteria.

The past two years CueSports International (CSI) analyzed the growth of players’ skill levels at the BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships and decided to create a new rating classification: the Advanced Division.

­The Advanced Division was created to add a level of play that falls between the Open Division and the Masters Division. Most of the players who have been moved into the Advanced Division were moved from the Masters Division down to the Advanced. The goal is to allow more players to participate and to further competitive opportunity.

CSI also reclassified all active Player Members to be included in the other singles divisions (based on their individual ability).

The following new Advancement Criteria became effective June 1, 2010 and is retroactive to all players who have cashed in the singles divisions of the BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships since 2005.

­New Advancement Criteria                             Old Policy New Policy

Top 8 from Men’s Open Singles                             Master                 Master
Top 4 from Women’s Open Singles                         Master                 Master        
9th-48th from Men’s Open Singles                         Master                 Advanced
5th-12th from Women’s Open Singles                     Master                 Advanced
Top 8 from Men’s Player Member Singles                Master                 Advanced
Top 2 from Women’s Player Member Singles         Master                 Advanced
Top 6 from Men’s Senior Singles                            Master                 Advanced
Top 3 from Women’s Senior Singles                     Master                 Advanced

Team Masters:

Going into 2011, all Team Masters are now on the Advanced or Open player lists based on singles performance and known ability. The Team Master category is based on an individual’s participation on a team’s finish at the BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships.        

State Masters:

Players who are currently listed in their state as a Master player (but who have not participated in the BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships) may remain as a Master or be moved down to the Advanced Division based on known ability and state and regional tournament results from 2005 – 2010.

Player Members:

All new Player Members, beginning June 1, 2010 will be required to enter the Advanced or higher Singles Divisions, ranked based on known ability. New and established Player Members (who have not cashed) may request consideration to enter the Open Division, but will be assessed individually.

Players on the Advanced list may petition the BCAPL to be removed. The Advanced category is based on individual play. If we have a tournament history of that player in singles that indicates that they are not an Advanced level player, they may be removed from the list and put back into the Open division.

Petition Procedure

To petition the BCA Pool League in order to be removed from the Advanced, Master, Grand Master or Team Master list, email Bill Stock at bill@playcsipool.com or mail the request. Telephone requests will not be accepted. All requests must be in writing.

Starting in early 2011, CSI will be able to accept online registration for all CSI independent events including the “Swanee”, U.S. Bar Table Championships, the U.S. Open 10-Ball Championship, and the 12th U.S. One Pocket Championship.

CSI also produces independent events such as the U.S. Bar Table Championships, the Jay Swanson Memorial, the U.S. Open One Pocket Championship and the U.S. Open 10-Ball Championship.

Higgins - I Struggle With Wembley Atmosphere

John Higgins hopes to continue his hot streak of form at next week's Ladbrokes Mobile Masters - but admits that he finds the atmopshere at the London event intimidating.

The Scot has won 18 of his last 19 matches on the World Snooker Tour and captured the trophy at the 12BET.com UK Championship in December by beating Mark Williams 10-9 in a classic final.

Higgins is now looking ahead to snooker's most prestigious invitation tournament, which runs from January 9 to 16 at Wembley Arena. He has a mixed record in the event, having won it in 1999 and 2006 but lost nine times in the first round, including three of the last four years.

"I've always been overawed by the atmosphere at Wembley," said Higgins. "It's such a big arena and if you are playing badly it can be exaggerated. Even the two times I have won it, I have not played to a great standard - except the 2006 final when I beat Ronnie O'Sullivan.

"I can't say I've got a terrible record because I've won it twice, but I've bombed out so many times in the first round. It's such a fabulous tournament and I would love to be able to play better there, but I've not often produced my best.

"I'm really looking forward to it this time because I'm high on confidence at the moment. I only played for a couple of days over Christmas, but I'm playing matches at the Championship League this week to get myself sharp."
Higgins' opening match in the Ladbrokes Mobile Masters will see him take on fellow Scot Graeme Dott on Monday, January 10 at 7pm.

"It will be a very tough match because Graeme's such a tenacious opponent," added Higgins. "I'll just try to play well and give myself a chance."

Tickets for the event are on sale now and start from just £10, representing incredible value to see the world's best players battling for a top prize of £150,000!

For details call 0844 815 0815 (Disabled Booking Line: 020 8782 5629) or visit www.worldsnooker.com/masters

QSP Series - IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

On Q Promotions Announces QSP Structure.
In line with our affirmed policy of open governance and close player liaison at South West Snooker Academy, we are pleased to announce we have acted upon the players’ feedback to enable as many players as possible to participate and fully benefit from the series.

Issues raised by the players, who were disappointed that they may not be able to participate, included timings of the events, conflicting dates in their diaries and funding led us to implement the following refinements to the QSP Series:
1. Events will now run Saturday-Sunday.
2. Players best 3 from 4 events will count towards their Ranking Position.

3. Entry payments may now be taken in two instalments.
These three actions will save players additional costs for accommodation, avoid taking a day off work on Friday and will enable players to still compete in QSP series and miss an event if they have a date clash, and spread out the cost of entry.

As the Academy has been booked out for the QSP for 3 days the South West Snooker Academy is delighted to announce a FREE practice day at the Academy, on the Friday prior to all QSP events for all those players who would like to take advantage of it.

INFORMATION
Ranking Points: Ranking points will be issued as follows: Winner 100 points, Runner Up - 75, Semi Finalist - 50, Quarter Finalist - 25, Last 16 - 10 points, Last 32 - 5 points. Additionally players will receive one point per frame won in their losing match. Players take their best 3 results to count towards the final ranking list.
Entry Fees: The total entry fee for the 4 event series is £350. This may be paid in one payment by cheque, credit card or BACs transfer. Or may be paid in two instalments: First payment £200 with entry and second payment £150 by 2nd February 2011.

Extended Closing date: 14 January 2011
Draws: The draw for Event 1 will be made on 15 January and published on our website at www.southwestsnookeracademy.com . We will also email players to give you your start times.

The draws for Events 2, 3 and 4 will be done live in the players' lounge at event one.

Event Dates:
Event One: 22-23 January 2011
Event Two: 5-6 February 2011
Event Three: 19-20 February 2011
Event Four: 19-20 March 2011

The prize fund will be, as previously announced, based on the number of entrants in the tournament.

CSI Now Accepts Online Registration for Independent Events

CueSports International (CSI) announces players are now able to register online for all upcoming independent events via the CueSports Tournament System (CTS) website (www.ctsondemand.com). The online registration section of CTS went live Friday, January 7th.

Online registration is now available for the following events:
·         The 15th Jay Swanson Memorial 9-Ball Tournament
·         The 18th U.S. Bar Table Championships

Players who register must pay their online entries by credit card using a Visa or Mastercard. All players will be sent an auto-generated email confirmation for each event they register for.

The Jay Swanson Memorial is going into its 15th year. The $3000 guaranteed / $4000 with a full field added event is scheduled February 12-13, 2011. The tournament will be held for the first time at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California. The event will also be live streamed via The Action Report (TAR). In the previous two years the 192 player field filled with a small wait list.

One of the largest and most revered bar table events, The U.S. Bar Table Championships, with $25,250 added, is held every year at the Terrible’s Sands Casino Hotel in Reno, Nevada. Scheduled February 21-27th, the tournament has the following divisions: Men’s /Open 8-ball, 9-ball, and 10-ball and Women’s 8-ball, 9-ball and 10-ball. Players who compete in all three of either the men’s / open or women’s divisions are eligible for “All Around” bonuses. While there is no field limit, in 2010 slightly over 500 players traveled to Reno to compete. This event is also known for the extremely low room block rates at the host hotel.

Additional events will be added to the CTS online registration page soon. Starting the end of January online registration will be available for all divisions of the BCAPL National 8-Ball and BCAPL National 9-Ball Championships (May 11-22, 2011, Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas).

However, in addition to registering online, players still have the option to either mail or fax their entries for all CSI tournaments and events. Only one form of registration should be used in order to avoid duplication.

CSI launched its custom designed CueSports Tournament System (CTS) in 2010. The CTS has a highly robust online bracket system which allows for both individual player and team searches, cross event archives, and offers detailed information about matches, such as table assignments, times, history of a player’s event matches, results and payouts just to name a few. Additionally, the CTS site has the added functionality of tournament live scoring, which CSI rolled out in the 2010 U.S. Open 10-Ball event. Now going into 2011, the online registration function has been added making the CTS site revolutionary in the industry for its cross function capabilities.

To register online for the 15th Jay Swanson Memorial 9-Ball Tournament or the 18th U.S. Bar Table Championships go to: www.ctsondemand.com. For more information about these and all CSI and / or the BCAPL upcoming events visit: www.playcsipool.com and www.playbca.com.

CueSports International 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 such as the U.S. Bar Table Championships, the Jay Swanson Memorial, the U.S. Open One Pocket Championship and the U.S. Open 10-Ball Championship.

"Actually, last September pa namin nabili kaso ngayong January lamang namin nakuha yung Toyota Fortuner Gray. Sabi ng ahente ng Toyota may discount kami ng P70,000 kaso hindi naman tumupad," added de Luna's wife Ian.
World Ranked No.9 Manalo in a seperate interview," Tiyak maraming malalakas na kasali sa World 8-ball sa Fujairah pero ready naman ako lalu na't natapus na din ang local election sa Barangay Malamig," said Manalo, newly-installed Barangay Malamig Chairman in the City of Mandaluyong under the lederaship of mayor Benhur Abalos Jr. and representative Boyet Gonzales.

De luna and Manalo, both also schedule to play in the 3rd World Ten Ball Championship set on May 9 to 15 in Manila.

World Snooker Extends Broadcast Agreement With BBC

Snooker's biggest domestic tournaments will be shown on the BBC for at least another three years thanks to a new agreement with World Snooker.

The deal sees the BBC continue as host broadcaster of the World Championship, the UK Championship, the Masters and the Welsh Open until the end of the 2013/14 season.

The World and UK Championships and the Masters will be given network coverage, while the Welsh Open will again be screened on BBC Wales.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: "We are absolutely thrilled to extend our partnership with the BBC for a further three years. It's a great day for our sport; for the administration, the players, and most of all the fans, who are guaranteed many hours of uninterrupted coverage of snooker on a free terrestrial channel. Last year, 18.7 million people watched at least 15 minutes of the World Championship, which proves that there is a great appetite for the sport in the UK.

"The World Championship, which has been extensively covered by the BBC every year since 1978, as well as the Masters, the UK Championship and the Welsh Open have become part of the sporting fabric of the nation. These events are among the jewels in the crown of the sporting calendar and it is fantastic that they are to remain on the BBC.

"Snooker has come a long way over the past year with new tournaments, new sponsors and new broadcast deals. This agreement with the BBC strengthens our foundations and allows us to keep pushing forward with the sport's new era."

Current World Champion Neil Robertson said: "It's exciting news for the players. The BBC has played such an integral part in the growth of snooker over the past few decades and it's great to know we'll still be shown on terrestrial TV and watched by millions of fans for at least another three years."

Legend Stephen Hendry added: "Ever since I've played snooker, the BBC has been the main broadcaster for our sport. The biggest tournaments belong on the BBC so it's excellent news that we've extended the deal."

BBC Director of Sport Barbara Slater said: "We're delighted to have renewed our partnership with World Snooker. The BBC has a proud history of coverage of top class snooker and we're looking forward to continuing to bring the highest quality coverage to our audiences."

BBC Wales Head of Sport Geoff Williams said: "BBC Cymru Wales is delighted to continue our coverage of the Welsh Open. Wales has always been recognised as a hotbed of snooker, with players like Ray Reardon, Terry Griffiths and Mark Williams being World Champions in the past, and we look forward to welcoming the world's top players to the Welsh Open in future years."

BY: MARLON BERNARDINO

DENNIS Orcullo, one of the most consistent players of the 2010 season and dubbed as “Philippine Money Game King” is schedule to play for a $20,000 pot money, 10-ball challenge before the year end.

This was announced yesterday by Bugsy Promotions head Ceferino “Perry” Mariano in close cooperation with Hermes Sports Bar and Skirts Sports Bar.

Qualifiers Scheduled for 12th U.S. Open One Pocket Championship

CueSports International (CSI) is producing the 12th U.S. Open One Pocket Championship at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV on May 13-15. The $10,000 added three day event will be held immediately prior to the 3rd U.S. Open 10-Ball Championship and alongside the BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships.

The game of One Pocket is often compared to chess. To play well it requires a keen sense of both offensive and defensive strategy. To be the best, a player must have the precision of a diamond cutter with their cue ball control and the patience of a long distance runner.

It is anticipated that some of the best known talents in One Pocket will be participating in the event. With a limited 48 player field a list of former One Pocket champions were emailed invites in early January. Any declined or un-registered invite spots will convert to open spots after March 1st. In addition to the invite and open spots, four qualifiers have been scheduled.

One paid entry (valued at $340) is included in the payout of each qualifier. Should the winner of a qualifier not be able to accept their spot, it will be offered to the next person in line from that particular qualifier event.

Allen Expects Shocks In Shoot-Out

Mark Allen expects plenty of shock results at the Snooker Shoot-Out in Blackpool later this month.

Northern Ireland’s Allen enjoyed a fantastic run in the Masters last week, reaching the semi-finals at Wembley. And the gifted 23-year-old is now looking forward to the new Shoot-Out, a quick-fire one-frame knockout tournament featuring ten-minute frames and a shot-clock.

Mark said: “It’s going to be exciting. It will be short and sweet, but if you’re winning it will be very sweet. With the frames only lasting ten minutes, anyone can beat anyone and there will be a lot of shocks.

“You could break off, the other guy makes a break and the game is over – so you might only play one shot. I think players will be a bit cagey because of that. But it’s great for the fans and it’s something different for the players. A few of my mates will be coming over to Blackpool, and I’m sure for anyone who goes along it will be a good laugh.”

The full first round draw is:

Tony Drago vs Liang Wenbo; Mark Allen vs Ryan Day; Stephen Lee vs Michael Holt; Nigel Bond vs Joe Jogia; Stephen Hendry vs Fergal O’Brien; Robert Milkins vs Martin Gould; Andrew Higginson vs Jamie Burnett; Tom Ford vs Stephen Maguire; Ding Junhui vs Dominic Dale; Michael Judge vs Alan McManus; Mark Williams vs John Higgins; Peter Ebdon vs Steve Davis; Jimmy Michie vs Marcus Campbell; Mark King vs Jimmy Robertson; Peter Lines vs Barry Hawkins; Shaun Murphy vs Rory McLeod; Alfie Burden vs Matt Selt; Ricky Walden vs Joe Perry; Judd Thump vs Dave Harold; Graeme Dott vs Matthew Couch; Jamie Cope vs Ken Doherty; Adrian Gunnell vs David Morris; Gerard Greene vs Rod Lawler; Matthew Stevens vs Mike Dunn; Stuart Pettman vs Bjorn Haneveer; Joe Swail vs Mark Davis; Anthony Hamilton vs Anthony McGill; Stuart Bingham vs Ian McCulloch; Neil Robertson vs Barry Pinches.

Snooker Shoot Out is a completely new event, which has been created by World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn. The tournament is part of a new era for the sport and is expected to open up snooker to a new audience; it’ll be fun and fast, with high-tension drama, and a fine display of snooker skill from the best players in the world.

Snooker Shoot Out is at the Circus Arena in Blackpool, 28 - 30 January. Tickets start from £10 and are on sale now. Discounts are available for groups of 6 or more. VIP tickets offering a chance to get up close to the players are also available..

For further information or to book tickets visit: www.worldsnooker.com/shootout or www.theblackpooltower.co.uk or telephone 0844 856 1000

PRO9 has established an outstanding reputation as Europe's No.1 source for information on American Pool in the UK and Europe.

Upcoming tournament details, prompt match reporting, exclusive images by talented photographers, superb articles by expert pundits, active pool related forums, player profiles and a very sophisticated membership - basically, an incredible information resource for the American style game in Europe.

Since it launched, PRO9 has become compulsory reading, not just for the UK's pool players, but to hundreds and thousands of pool obsessives from around the world every single day.

PRO9's members range from professional pool players, cue-sports enthusiasts, club managers, tournament organisers, pool fans and aficionados, as well as various "movers and shakers" in the cue-sports field, including entrepreneurs in the wholesale and retail sector, as well as magazine editors and television sports promoters.

Growing more and more popular every single year, PRO9 is the best placed vehicle for the promotion of your pool club, billiards brand, associated products, services and opportunities in the truly massive pan-European billiard market.
