Did I read $200 for reserved seating and $150 for standing room? I probably misread something. If not, how can this possibly be any good for pool?

What is Fantasy9Ball.com? I couldn't bring up the site. Can anyone else access it?

This is a $40 increase from last years admission.
There are daily tickets for individual day events. Not sure what those prices are.
But, the $200 is for the reserved seating. And, the cost is for the entire tournament.
I still think its a value for the amount of time I will be there.. all week plus.

Eddie, Those prices are all for reserved seating. The $150 seats are at the ends away from the finals table. There is nothing known as "standing room". Everyone coming in should be able to find a seat but the general admission seats are not reserved. It's true that you might be able to see better by standing in the aisles but very few people can be accommodated that way. It seems from the seating chart that there are no seats on the very ends of the arena. Maybe there's no room for seats; that might be the best place to stand.

For the finals you will need binoculars from the general admission seats to distinquish the balls and really figure out what's going on in the games. One year I stood on a chair behind the bleachers and got a pretty good view of the finals.

I didn't realize it was popular enough to command those kind of prices. I thought pool was hurting for spectators. Guess I was "WRONG AGAIN". Shows how little I know about all these tournaments. I thought attendance at pool matches was low and hurting. And when I saw those prices I thought that would be one of the reasons.
Do all of you players or entrants at least get to watch all the tournaments for free? Thanks for enlightening me.

It is my understanding that the $500 entry fee gets you a daily pass plus a guest pass for the entire tournament.. no reserved seating.
