29 Aug Sydney 8Ball Masters
- November 2, 2018 - November 4, 2018
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Welcome to the Sydney 8 Ball Masters another CueWorld premium event. Raising the bar is always the goal for event promoters and CueWorld have set the bar high with this event, attracting CASH sponsors, Red Bull Girls, Match Streams and World Class Commentary with Barry "The Mule" Mavros. If you see Barry doing the rounds, make sure you visit him in the media booth to catch up with him and do an interview. Barry will be assisted by Kate "KT180" Harrison will be roaming the tournament room taking photos of the action, if you want a photo in the media booth with some friends let her know I'm sure she will oblige.
The tournament will be spearheaded by Marvin "The Mayor" Monzon as Tournament Director with his trusty compadre "Lord" Langa Solofoni as one of the Tournament Staff, most of the local Sydney pool players know these two gents and they are well respected and liked by all in the community. The event has been specially formatted to be known as the "no excuse format" with the group stage having five players per group including one SEED and four players progressing to the knockout stage, not too bad considering the staggered entry fee based on skill levels.
This event is strictly limited to 100 players and will attract some big names to compete for the $4000 prize money in the final. Over $3500 has now been added to the event thanks to our fantastic sponsors - Direct Steel, Tenpin City, CueWorld, Kamui and Predator Cues. Across the three days of the tournament CueWorld will be organizing a Predator Cue raffle along with some Kamui prize packs including the brand new ROKU chalk. We have also added a Calcutta for the tournament for all the punters out there that like the action. We will be selling eight groups of 8 players in the final 64 stage, so everyone can get a few horses in the race to the final table.
Justin Sajich has already put his name down for this event as the recent champion of the CueWorld Classic in July 2018 he is looking forward to another title to add to his ever-growing trophy cabinet, who is going to step up and stop the Juzzanaught from taking the cash?
