Mark your calendars, friends! The World Cup of Pool will be staged from Tuesday to Sunday , September 7-12, 2010. It will feature a total of 32 two-player teams shooting for the $250,000 prize fund! WOOOO!
For those not in the know, Bata Reyes and Django Bustamante, both members of the Filipino Invasion, have won the prestigious trophy on two of the four occasions it has been held! Truth be told, their unforgettable win in 2009 in Manila, Philippines, was one of the most exciting finals ever seen in the history of the tour – the Philippines’ awesome duo beating Germany’s best at 11-9!
And because the Philippines is hosting the event, we have been given the honor of fielding two teams! Complimenting the Philippine A Team (Reyes and Bustamante) is none other than everyone’s favorites Dennis Orcollo, aka Robocop, and Roberto Gomez, aka Superman! Awesome!
Some of the top pool players scheduled to play in the 2010 World Cup of Pool include World Champions Ralf Souquet and Oliver Ortmann (Germany), Daryl Peach and Karl Boyes (United Kingdom), Johnny Archer (USA), Mika Immonen aka The Iceman (Finland), Marcus Chamat (Sweden), Niels Feijen (Netherlands), and Tony Drago (Malta).
The 2010 World Cup of Pool event will be broadcast by Solar Sports live across the Philippines - with the live feed of the tournament available internationally! Moreover, Matchroom Sport is scheduled to produce a 31 x one hour highlights package of the competition!
I am just absolutely delighted! And I kid you not!
