THE WOMEN'S Professional Billiard Association kicked off its 2013 Classic Tour with a few exciting developments. First, the WPBA Masters - held Feb. 6-10 at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, Mich. - was the first women's event to be streamed live for an American audience on ESPN3, the broadcasting giant's Internet-based network available to all current cable subscribers. Additionally, the format for the semifinal and final matches was tweaked, from a single set to two races to 4, with a single rack of sudden death if players split.
