    I haven't heard of the pro eight ball league but I know a lot of people are waiting for the bonus ball league.

    Funny, that's what the players demanded last time before climbing down from that boycott threat, AND of course, payments were delayed at the end from the lack of escrowing them in advance.

    That is a great idea, which we'll have to wait to see if it's implemented and works.

    I am in favor of players being paid what they earned by placing in the field, and on time as well.
    Keep in mind that Shannon is handling the escrow, not a third party. I like both Barry and Shannon and I really want to trust that the money will be there when its needed but we've heard too many stories over the past few years. I'll still be there but I won't be surprised if things don't work as planned.

    That's a great link to explain what's going to happen.

    Also, for those who didn't read through the whole thing, there is a floor plan shown.

    My observation is that apparently the feature match tv table will NOT be visible from anywhere but the surrounding VIP seating, not at all in the general admission seating. Probably as they did last year, they'll provide one or more big screens to let the people without sight lines to the feature match table see the Accustat video feed.

    There is also a second room with 5 additional tables that will be used as long as they are needed. I wouldn't recommend reserving seats in that room. LOL

    Rooms are available now at the Marriott (thanks Rich for passing that on), and I've reserved mine already.

    When were seats going to be available again? June 1?

    Phil, I'm happy you pulled the trigger on the rooms. It's not a bad price, especially for the Marriott.
    I believe you are correct about June 1 being the start date for seats but the date has been changed a few times. I wouldn't be surprised if they changed it again.

    We won't be able to make it this year. Hopefully next year. Neither of us can get off work that weekend.
