I actually caught that on tv last week-end, it was the Nevel Daulton match. Very interesting, too bad it's 2002... but way better than nada...

Great job, keep it coming.

As the series progresses, the matches as well as the production improve.

Even though it's last year's event, it means we're making great strides to get the programs on the air. The 2002 U S Open has now surpassed all the previous years combined as for as TV broadcast hours, and we're only in week #7-8 in the US.

The 2003 U S Open is slated for Pay-per-view again. Four matches this year, commercial-free without interuption. More details forthcoming.

Thanks again for your support.

I can't wait for the pay-per-view 2003 one... Does without interuption mean all games of the match ?

One of the thing I dislike most about the WPC is the fact that from a 3-2 lead you find yourself watching a 5-5 tie after the commercials.

Even more when they did that with the Davis-Strickland match and they skipped all the action with the crowd booing and Strickland going wild and getting warned /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Yes, you will see every shot, from first break to final 9-Ball from 2 feature matches, plus the semi and final matches.

I enjoyed last years PPV, not because of my prior interest but really thought BCn went the distance and did a great job!
