Two Stooges Sports Bar & Grille will be adding $5000. Dr. Cue Promotions will be adding $1000 and the WPA-APD will determine the breakdown. The WPA will be adding $4000 via the WPA Artistic Pool Division. In addition, all entry fees from players will be added to the prize fund ($250 per player). Position percentage payouts to be determined.

The format will start with the preliminary round of 40 shots (from the 56 shot program), followed by 12 players advancing into the playoff round. Positions 1-4 will receive byes in the first playoff round. Each playoff match will consist of 16 shots selected by the players (1 per discipline per player), followed by each player selecting 2 additional shots which can be any shots in the program. The only limitation is that a player may not select his final 2 shots from the same discipline. Players will receive 3 attempts at each shot and receive the corresponding point value. The player with the highest point total at the end of the match will advance.

The event will be played on 4 Gabriel 9 foot pool tables. 3 practice tables will be available. The cloth, ball sets, etc will be posted at a later time.

The WPA will provide medals for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd overall positions of finish. 8 discipline medals and a player sportsmanship award will be provided by Dr Cue Promotions.
