Ultimate 10-Ball Championships / Frisco, TX
The second annual Ultimate 10-Ball Championships is set to kick off April 22 with players from all over the world gathered at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Frisco, TX, to participate in the $50,000-added event.
The players’ meeting was held the evening of April 21 in the grand ballroom, which has 24 Diamond Pro-am tables set up, covered with Simonis cloth, and ready for play. Tournament promoter Badi Nazhat gave a short inspirational speech to the players and then turned things over to tournament co-director Ken Shuman to explain the rules of the tournament.
The women’s division will be a race to 7, with the semifinals a race to 8 and the final match a race to 10. The men will race to 8; the semifinals will be a race to 10 and the finals to 12. Breaks will alternate, players must call all pockets, and the all-ball fouls rule will be used. Jump cues are legal. The 10 ball will spot if it is pocketed on the break. Additionally, each table will have a referee posted at it for every match.
Matches will be live streamed by Inside Pool Video and PoolActionTV. Visit InsidePOOL for the latest news in the sport of billiards and pool.
