I really don't know. Spoke with the organizer twice last week. He was supposed to come to the Illinois Billiards Club Sunday, but maybe the weather kept him away. I think it's meant to be for more average players and not top local straight pool guys but we will see what happens. He said something about having one a month. I tried to hook him up with Jim Parker who organized tournaments years ago, but like I say, he was a no-show. Dennis

It is very good that they are having it over two days. Our league tried to do a DE 14.1 tourney in one day and it took 14 hours, and that was with shortening the loser side games to 60.

Let me know how it turns out, sounds like a lot of fun-
