International Pool Tour News and Updates:
The first five tournaments of the IPT World Open 8-Ball Championship Qualification System get underway starting this Friday July 14, 2006. Entry to the first weekend events will be cut off some time on Thursday, July 13.
Entry fees must be paid in advanced. Absolutely no entry fees will be accepted at the door regardless of the number of players. Players who entered the early rounds of the North American Open qualification system were rewarded because of the typically low turnout of players in the first round, so don't miss your chance! Click here to see full results of those qualification tournaments.
The top two players in each qualification tournament will win a spot in the World Open. Players who place 3rd-6th in each qualification tournament will win a free entry into another qualification tournament. Over $3 million dollars in prize money will be given away at the World Open. First place in the World Open is an unprecedented $500,000! Interestingly, last place pays $5000...even if you don't make a single ball! Also, any non-IPT Tour member who places in the top six in the IPT World Open 8-Ball Championship will earn automatic invitations to play in the 2006 IPT Players Championship and IPT Masters Championship, which are Tour Member-only events. For the complete payout schedules, click here.
Also keep in mind that this is the IPT "World Open 8-Ball Championship," and the fact that many more qualification tournaments will be held outside the U.S. This first week of qualification tournaments are being played in the U.S. If you plan to attend a qualifier in the U.S., after this weekend, there will not be that many opportunities. Click here to visit the qualifier schedule for the qualification tournaments.
Don't miss this opportunity to play in the biggest and most prestigious tournament in the history of the game! You can register on line at www.internationalpooltour.com or by calling the IPT at (847) 439-3438 during business hours (CST). But remember, if you want to play this weekend, you need to register as soon as possible.
There are two entry fee levels for qualification tournaments. A full entry fee is $1500. All winnings earned at this entry fee level will count towards the top 100 Money List which wins you a 2007 IPT Player's Card. All 2007 IPT players are guaranteed $100,000! For more information on how this is earned, click here. The second entry fee level is $750. If you enter a qualifying tournament at the $750 entry fee level and come in first or second, you still are entered into the IPT World Open 8-Ball Championship. However, you will only receive 50% of any prize money you win. Your prize money will not count towards the money list. This qualifying system is designed to allow players from all over the world to enter tournaments without huge travel expenses and costs. It is also designed to weed out players who know that they have no chance in the tournaments.
