We couldn’t forget Steve Booth founder of for sponsoring the $1,000 added One Ball warm up event. You can thank Steve and learn a thing or two by picking up his book “The Art of One Pocket.” Shout out to Danny Olson for winning that event and again to Lukas for being a finalist there as well.

A Very Special thank you to Digital Pool, Isaac Wooten & Zach Goldsmith for always pushing the envelope for the future of pool. A few hiccups that were quickly resolved thanks to a team effort including but not limited to TIFF, Frank Maialetti & Danny Olson to help us piece back the bracket.
Also thank you do Daniel Krupinski for sticking it out the ENTIRE event for auxiliary commentary!!!
Nothing worth having ever came without some growing pains so thank you to making my long list of feature requests a reality so those that come next will have an easier path!
We also want to thank All those who Bought the PPV. Many do not realize The PPV is primarily how we are able to make up the gaps in the added money so without your support we would not be able to grow and continue to grow the added funds to these events. As a special thank you we have expanded access from 30 days to May 1st, so those who supported have extra time to catch every match!
We will release the best matches throughout the year on our youtube and facebook page so EVERYONE can enjoy the sport we all love.
The same goes for anyone who purchases a tickets to watch the event in purchase, bought a shirt, or participated in a lesson or clinic. Without your support we would never be able to close our doors to normal business & Leagues plus hire 3x the staff for 6 days to bring world class billiards to your backyard! It truly takes a village to pull off an event like this there are SO many people to thank not limited to ALL the Staff at Amazin Billiards and to the man himself Mazin Shooni, without his continued hard work this event and future events would not be possible.
Thank you to Brian Pauley for his trickshot show, to Dick Jaspers for his 3c clinics, and to Chaokun Li for his help with Auction Sphere. Also special thanks to Ryan McCrum for saving pinky and helping with cable management
