• PLAYERS TRAVELING FROM THE WORLD 10-BALL CHAMPIONSHIP
to THE US OPEN 10-BALL CHAMPIONSHIP:
Players participating in both the US Open 10-Ball Championship (May 14-19, 2012) and the World 10-Ball Championship (May 7-13, 2012, Manila, Philippines) need to notify US Open 10-Ball Tournament Director Bill Stock (bill@playcsipool.com) that they will be traveling from the Philippines to the US.
We understand how tight the two events are scheduled and wish to make it possible for all players who need or wish to play in both to be able to do so. Players in this situation and who notify Bill Stock will be allowed and scheduled to play the last possible first round time for the US Open 10-Ball Championship. Due to the International Dateline, saving the travelers a day between the Philippines and the US, this makes the situation workable.
Please contact either Bill Stock or Holly Ryan (holly@playcsipool.com) if you have any questions.
