World Pool Masters, World Cup of Pool & Predator International 10-Ball Schedules!

World Pool Masters Graphic

Indeed, it will be a busy September for Philippine billiards as the Pool Capital of the World plays host to not just one but three major international tournaments! And I kid you not!

First on the list is the 2011 World Pool Masters, which will kick off the events on September 3-5 at the SM City North Edsa in Quezon City. Sixteen of the world's best cue artists will take part in the prestigious invitational tournament, including Filipino pool players Efren Bata" Reyes, Francisco “Django” Bustamante, Dennis Orcollo, and Lee Vann Corteza.

For those not in the know, Orcollo, aka Robocop, is the defending champion. He will be seeing competition in the opener of the $66,000 event – battling it out against Tony Drago of Malta (2003 World Pool Masters champion). Bustamante takes on Canada’s Jason Klatt, as Corteza and Reyes clash with the Netherlands’ Huidji See and England’s Darren Appleton, respectively. The World Pool Masters will have a race-to-8, winner’s break format. All matches will be aired live on Solar Sports: September 3-4 at 12 noon to 10 PM, and September 5 at 3 PM to 10 PM. Solar Sports is on Sky Cable Channel 70, Destiny Channel 35, and Cablelink Channel 31.

The next event is the 2011 World Cup of Pool where two Philippine teams will compete head on against the world’s bests on September 6-11 – also at the SM City North Edsa. Reyes and Francisco "Django" Bustamante aim to make history as they seek to win their third title. Reyes and Bustamante won the coveted World Cup of Pool championship twice, i.e., in 2006 and in 2009. Orcollo and Ronnie Alcano make up the other Filipino pair who will gun it out for the championship, which is currently held by China’s Fu Jianbo and Li He Wen. A total of 32 teams from 31 countries will compete in the $250,000 tournament.

The third, but definitely not the least competition on schedule for September 2011 is the 11th Predator International 10-Ball Championship (September 14-18). Reyes, aka The Magician, is all set to defend his title against 95 hopefuls from 30 different countries. The competition will be held at the Robinson's Galleria.
