American Pool Network are pleased to announce a series of satellite qualifiers for the IPT World 8-ball Open Championships - a tournament with a $3,000,000 prize fund.

Normal entry fee's to this event are $750/$1500. However by playing in one of the satellite qualifiers you could gain entry for as little as 25.00

The last satellite promoted by APN was a huge success drawing a field of 35 runners and both Gareth Esprit and Martin Correia both one spots in the UK qualifier.

The satellite dates are as follows:

Sunday 16th July - Rileys Victoria
Sunday 16th July - Rileys Manchester (Deansgate)

Sunday 23rd July - Rileys Solihull.

Each event will cost 25.00 entry. However if you enter a tournament on the 16th (Victoria or Manchester) you will get entry for 20 at the Solihull event.

The format will be group matches followed by straight KO. (Time allowing) - The tournament will NOT be single elimination, so players will be guaranteed at least 2 matches.

APN will guarantee one $750 entry to the Victoria IPT Qualifier on 4th or August 2006, regardless of entries. This is at EACH venue.
