Hello,

Happy New Year! IPT Press Release!

IPT Announcement- Dates and Locations for 2006 Tour Card Qualifying Tournaments

Here is your opportunity to secure a spot on the 150 player IPT 2006 Tour! There are currently eight openings for the 2006 season and the IPT is hosting four qualification tournaments throughout the United States. The top two finishers in each of these events will win a 2006 IPT Tour Card. No matter how many players enter each tournament, two players will earn their tour cards.

Derby City Classic - Louisville, KY - January 15-16, 2006
Pool Room Sports Bar and Grill, Atlanta (Marietta), GA - January 27-29, 2006
Hard Times Billiards, Los Angeles (Bellflower), CA - February 17-19, 2006
Country Club Billiards, Boston (Chelmsford), MA - February 24-26, 2006

Each tournament will be a Double-Elimination competition with races to ten. The Two players from each tournament who will win tour cards will be the winner of the winning side and the winner of the losing side of the brackets. IPT Rules, which can be read on line, govern each tournament. There is very limited space at each event so entries are based on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not miss this chance to play on the IPT tour by failing to register in time. On line registration is the only way to enter these events and the form is on the IPT web site www.internationalpooltour.com. (http://www.internationalpooltour.com.) Absolutely no entries will be allowed at the tournament; no money will be accepted at the events.

What is a 2006 IPT Tour Card worth? So far in 2005 after just two events and, the IPT awarded historic and unprecedented prize payouts and hosted the largest paying tournament (2005 King of the Hill) in the history of billiards. IPT members in 2006 will be playing in a minimum of four events and over $8 million in prize money. Each IPT member is guaranteed at least $13,000 in prize earnings, even if they don't win a single match. IPT Members in 2006 are also going to receive monies from IPT profit sharing which has the potential to be in the tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, the top 100 ranked players from the 2006 season automatically get to play in the 2007 season. Fifty other players must go through the grueling qualification tournament to win a 2007 tour card. Every 2007 IPT Member is guaranteed a minimum of $100,000. It is going to be much easier to be in the top 100 of the 2006 season (and win the 2007 tour card) than it will be to qualify for the 2007 IPT season through competition, so being on the tour in 2006 is quite advantageous.

By visiting www.internationalpooltour.com (http://www.internationalpooltour.com) you can choose to register for one or more qualifying tournaments. If you choose to enter more than one event, you will be charged for each tournament. However, if you happen to win a spot on the tour, you will be refunded any entry fee money you paid for a later qualification tournament. Once you enter on line, you will receive an emailed receipt. Shortly thereafter, IPT staff will contact you by telephone in addition to email which will contain all of the information you will need to know about the venues, dates, times, etc. We hope to see you on the tournament trail! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Was it ever made public who the 8 are who were dropped or dropped out?

This is interesting in how the IPT is running their qualifiers. It will be unknown how many people will apply probably until they arrive at the match site. And for which dates they will apply. I would imagine that Alex will apply for all four. But it is possible that with the $2,000 application fee that there will be a low turnout. Which means that the odds for winning a qualifier will be pretty good.

We will be hearing people say that the two grand is too high. But what they really mean is that they just don't think they are good enough to win.

Hello Jake,

Happy New Year to you. Alex? Alex has a problem with his Nationality, weather he is Canadian, American or from the Philippines Since he married an American lady I claim him for the United Ststes. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Most of the no shows were the drunken Australians. So many players of dubious credentials on the IPT now. I was hoping Tony Crosby and Romana Dokovic would play in the qualifiers. Where is the Women's World Champion Kim Ga Young and 16 year old Wu.

There are some cheap people on this earth complaining about the price of pool. I was instructed from an early age, if I couldn't afford it stay home. So if the players can't afford it they can stay home.

Check out my website I posted my picks for the bottom fifety
in 2006. May change when the eight spots are filled. Link for you.
