The three USA teams will be up against three teams from China, Philippines, England, and other teams from Asia and Europe. All the players will be joining on November 30th to December 2,2011 at Jiebai Mall in Hangzhou,China.

Jeanette Lee is known as one of the most famous players in the world, and she is still playing well today. The Black Widow, as she is known, just recently finished 3rd at the recent WPBA event in America. And her partner, Johnny Archer, still remains ranked in the top 5 in the USA for over 20 years, many of those years being ranked #1.
” It is my first time playing with a female partner. I accepted the invitation because I really enjoy playing team events, and I am excited to play as a team with Jeanette”, said Archer. Johnny will, coincidentally, be flying straight from China to Las Vegas after the event to play for Team USA again in the Mosconi Cup. It will be his 15th year on the USA Team.

Jennifer Barretta and Hunter Lombardo will also be teaming up for the first time. Both players are ranked in the top 10 in the USA and could be a surprise hit in the event.
I accepted my invite to this event because I’ve never been to China, and I love playing doubles. I’ve played mixed doubles as an amateur in smaller events, but not at the pro level. Hunter and I will be a good team because whenever I’m around my partner we always laugh and have a good time. It’s so important to be compatible”, said Jennifer.

The final USA hopefuls will be the exotic match-up of Shanelle Loraine and Max Eberle.

“It has been a longtime dream of mine to visit China and to play pool here, as well as witness the pool craze in China which I hear is pretty phenomenal. I was the MC match announcer for the very first Dragon Promotions event ever which was held in Orlando, Florida over 10 years ago… so it is great to see the success that Dragon Promotions has created, and an honor to be playing in DP’s first ever event in China!” said Eberle. Max is a former 2 times USA National College Champion and former USA Junior Champion. As a professional, he has a bronze medal at the World Straight Pool Championship.

Archer and Lee will be teaming up for the very first time to go against the world's best man/women teams at the Taobao World Mixed Doubles.

Shanelle added, “I am absolutely honored to be invited to this world class event. It has always been a dream of mine to visit China! There’s no way I could turn down this amazing opportunity to compete in Dragon Promotions first event ever in China.” Loraine has improved alot over the years as a semi-pro player and finished an impressive 3rd place last time at the World Mixed Doubles with wins over Finland and Japan. “I absolutely admire Max Eberle‘s game. I have so much respect for him and his many accomplishments throughout his lifelong career of playing. I have his DVDs and his book called “Zen Pool”. I am super excited to have him as my teammate! My experience in playing with the opposite gender has always been so positive. I know we will have a great time.”

Some notable names to get familiar with tomorrow will be Han Yu, and Dang Jinhu. Yu won the ladies division of the All Japan Championship before and just finished an impressive 3rd at The Women’s World 10-Ball Championship. Her partner Dang is one of the top 5 male players in China. Zhou Doudou and Wang Can will be another tough team to beat. Zhou is easily one of the top 10 women in China and just had 5th place at The World 10-Ball. Finally, already strong pro as a teenager, 16 year old Gao Meng will be playing with her coach Chang Hao-ping. Remember the 1999 World Championship that Efren Reyes won? Chang was his opponent in the finals.

While many of the teams coming will have Chinese powerhouses, one team stands out as the dark horse hopefuls. An amateur team will be testing their skills tomorrow. The event co-producer 9-Club Entertainment is sponsoring the team of Li Dacheng and Zhang Jie. Dacheng is one of the top 10 amateurs in Beijing who has tried a few stafe 1 qualifiers before, while his partner Zhang is the female housepro and coach at 9-Club Bar, the venue for the live stream table matches of the Taobao World Mixed Doubles.

“It’s a great chance for me to compete in a real international tournament as an amateur pool player. Even if it’s somewhere else in China I’ll try to get there and qualify. Pool is actually an important part of my life,and I’m a big fan of it that’s the reason I want to come. Being here, it helps me to realize the difference between the pros, so my goal this time is to get into the main tournament as a non-pro. I know Huidji See from Netherlands and Roberto Gomez from Philippines they turned to pro players late in their career. There’s still a chance for me to have a try, even if the possibility is not that big. I have to improve a lot, I mean the strategy and how to cooperate with my partner. For the tournament I know I can’t be too nervous or too relaxed. Have to learn to ajdust my temper. Maybe that’s the main difference between pros and amateurs. I truly appreciate the help and support from my parents, girlfriends and all my best friends, they helped a lot to make my dream come true”, explained Dacheng in an interview with Top147.com, the Official Media Partner of the event.
