    Well, I am sure it will be different for 2013 than 2012.
    New Tournament Directors will be needed.
    The Pros will go, because it is the only action in Oct. Not all the pros, but I would guess that...

    Re: Corey Deuel the next Earl Strickland?

    I'd be surprized if Cory did this during a tournament match.
    I've seen him use it while gambling as a handicap. Seems to work for him and his opponent.

    Re: Luck

    I agree with Lee's statement to a degree.

    Bad Golfers (or bad Pool players) get more LUCK (good and bad) because they are just going to put themselves in that position more often that the Good...
  5. Re: ABP versus BB and the US Open 9 Ball Championship.

    JJinFLA, all good questions.
    Barry will be saving $7,000 by my calculation by not having to pay the 14 past champions that are members of the ABP.

    Money in escrow for all the players. 65-96...
  6. Re: ABP versus BB and the US Open 9 Ball Championship.

    It's over, Barry Caved and is going to have the $50k and entry fees taken over by the BCA.

    The ABP has won the battle.

    No word on the seeding demands or the $500 entry fee for past champions...

    Re: A new way to fill the brackets

    Good idea. I've often thought that a staggard entry fee might do the same thing.

    All the Pros must pay $650 and get seeded accordingly.
    The rest of the field pays only $250and goes into a...

  10. Re: ABP versus BB and the US Open 9 Ball Championship.

    Oh, Fran, this is so true and what is really sick about the money involved is that none of it is anyone's business except the promoter.

    The ABP doesn't care where the money comes from, but I am...
  11. Re: Does calling everything rules favor weaker play?

    Calling everything only indicates a bar player only knows rules that other bar players told them.

    IMO, it is the first sign of NOT getting involved in this GAME.
  12. Re: ABP versus BB and the US Open 9 Ball Championship.

    IMO the 'marketing' of the US Open has to focus on the HUGE prize money offered the players. This international field of 256 players has to have a world class marketing ploy of a prize fund only...
  13. Re: ABP versus BB and the US Open 9 Ball Championship.

    Fran is correct, the majority of the money for the US Open 9 Ball tournament comes from entry fees. Barry adds money from what he makes during the tournament. Spectator turnout is a huge chunk of...

    Re: How popular are the pros really?

    Hello from the Left Coast.

    Talk out here is that Barry will have his 256 entries and not have to pay $7000 in past champion fees.

    Secondly the men are not organized enough to know what an ESPN is.
