Premier Pool Promotions reports huge interest in UK 9Ball Tour

Hi Guys, Premier Pool Promotions has seen a huge interest in our UK 9Ball Tour however deposits need to be paid to guarantee the event goes ahead.

I think the format it fantastic offering the top players a reason to be the top players and opportunity for the non seeded players to become a seeded player from the following event, gain experience of playing under the same roof as many pro players and get lots of tournament table time.

More than enough players have messaged to say they would like to play but I'm now in the position of the players living a distance away would like to book hotels. 15 years of running events says nobody is 100% guaranteed until the entry few has been paid.

A decision will be made on Friday 6th October.

If you would like to see a new National Tour begin then please get in contact to arrange the deposit payment and share the poster to show your support.

If you sceptical due to GB9, I have always said if GB9 starts next year and there isn't room for two tours then I would step back. I am fully in support of GB9 and hope it returns but if it doesn't at least we have a new National Tour to fall back on.

All I need is your support and I will do the rest.

Please share the poster with other players.

KO PING CHUNG WINS THE 46TH US OPEN POOL CHAMPIONSHIP

Ko Ping Chung has won the 46th US Open Pool Championship at Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City, after beating Fedor Gorst live on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom & Ireland and DAZN in the United States.

Ko Ping Chung 13-6 Fedor Gorst

Following the final four racks against Max Lechner, the 11-0 semi-final whitewash of Aloysius Yapp and the first rack of the final, Ko Ping Chung had recorded 16 consecutive racks – an incredible feat to help open proceedings. But Gorst wasn’t prepared to allow a repeat of the semi-finals, winning the next two to go ahead.

The Ghost’s defence has grown in strength as the week advanced, with some brilliant safety play coercing Ko into mistakes, helping him establish a three-rack margin at 5-2. The 23-year-old maintained a 100% safety success throughout the opening 12 racks.

A ridiculous five-rail fluke on the 3-ball set a series of events that stopped the rut, eventually seeing the Chinese Taipei World Cup of Pool star come back to level the match at 6-6. A mistake from Gorst at 6-3 left the three over the pocket, then a fault on the same ball in the next rack invited Ko to clean up and level the match.

Ko Ping Chung knows how to control the momentum of a match, having produced a flawless display in the semi-finals. From 6-all, the match quickly became 10-6 as seven consecutive racks were accumulated to leave him three from home.

KO PING CHUNG PRODUCES FLAWLESS DISPLAY TO SET UP HUGE US OPEN FINAL WITH FEDOR GORST

Ko Ping Chung and Fedor Gorst will contest the 46th US Open Pool Championship final at Harrah's Resort, Atlantic City - live on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom & Ireland and DAZN in the United States - after a history making afternoon in New Jersey.

Appearing in his first-ever Matchroom major semi-final, Aleksa Pecelj took the moment in before walking into the arena. Opposite him stood Fedor Gorst, arriving to a rapturous ovation from the American crowd.

There was clear indication as to who the crowd were rooting for, but Pecelj was able to brush off and focus by establishing an early lead. The Serb brought out the spectacular, showcased with a fantastic full-table jump shot when hooked on the 1-ball to allow him to clean up the table. 1-0 down quickly became 5-1 and the 23-year-old looked to have established control.

But the man in the opposite corner was no ordinary player. 2019 World 9-ball champion Gorst has a plethora of experience, despite his young age. In taking the seventh rack following a scratch from Pecelj, the ‘Ghost’ could settle into the match and find his rhythm on the grey baize.

What followed was domination, as he clicked into gear. Across the next 11 racks, Gorst won 10 of them, as Pecelj could barely feature at the table. Even by his standards, this was an exceptional display by Gorst to see out an 11-6 victory and reach his maiden US Open Pool Championship final.

The same script wasn’t followed in the second semi-final, where Shark’s International Open winner Ko Ping Chung met 2021 US Open runner-up Aloysius Yapp. Despite a range of top-level experience across the globe, Chinese Taipei’s World Cup of Pool star Ko had never reached the final after losing out to Max Lechner hill-hill in last year’s semi-final.

He wasn’t in the mood to repeat history, producing one of the most dominant performances in the history of the World Nineball Tour. Yapp could only sit and admire as Ko dictated proceedings throughout barely giving the Singaporean a sniff.

Making the one in the side pocket, in every single rack, the Chinese Taipei star produced seven break and runs – more than the total number of shots Yapp had in the entire match. From 11 racks, Ko Ping Chung has pocketed all 108 balls in this race to 11. Yapp had zero. One of the most one-sided clinics you will ever see on the World Nineball Tour.

FEDOR GORST DELIGHTS THE AMERICAN CROWD WITH LAST 16 WIN

Fedor Gorst reached his third-straight US Open Pool Championship quarter-final on the main TV table – live on Sky Sports in the UK & Ireland and DAZN in the United States – after battling past former US Open and World 9-ball Champion Carlo Biado.

Gorst, who recently won the Turning Stone Classic XXXVII during his preparations for the tournament, had ran up a three-rack lead to start the contest and looked comfortable in-front of an adopted home crowd in Atlantic City.

The Black Tiger Biado roared back taking the next three racks to level the game, in a trend that followed suit throughout as neither man could establish a comfortable margin until the 13th rack. Gorst found his breakthrough and got to the hill, and with the scores at 9-7 to the former Mosconi Cup winner, a moment of fortune saw him over the line.

Fortune favours the brave, and following a kick on the 5-ball, the six was knocked into the pocket allowing the 23-year-old to clean up and advance to the last eight.

Next up was the turn of Skyler Woodward to step onto the main stage in-front of a rapturous American crowd. In the opposite corner sat 2017 US Open champion Jayson Shaw, a man who’s made his home in the Land of Opportunity.

Shaw has been on top-form all week, and when he’s at the top of his game, Eagle Eye is an incredibly difficult opponent to stop. Woodward, who has years of experience against his British counterpart, found out the hard way and fell behind to a three-nil lead early doors.

The three-rack cushion was maintained as the scoreline bounced from 5-2 to 7-4 to 8-5 – where Shaw really came into control of the tie. His moment was capped off with a Golden Break and a signature war cry to let America know that he was here for the title.

Aloysius Yapp and Mario He contested for a spot in the last eight to open proceedings on Table 1. He has yet to snap off a Matchroom Major title, despite sitting #4 in the WNT Rankings. Yapp has been in this position before, having reached the US Open final in 2021, and was able to use the experience of the event to see out a 10-5 victory over the Panda.

Sharks’ International Open winner Ko Ping Chung stung the hands of Mosconi Cup hopeful and Matchroom Major veteran Joshua Filler. The World Cup star of Chinese Taipei dashed the hopes of another major title for the German.

The session came to a close with a hill-hill epic between Wiktor Zielinski and European Open champion David Alcaide. Having commanded a dominant 7-1 margin, Zielinski looked set to cleanly move into the quarter-finals.

But El Matador Alcaide is a fighter, and battled back to take the tie the distance, and was breaking in the deciding rack. It ended in agony for the Spaniard however, scratching on the break to allow the Pole ball-in-hand and was able to clean up for the win.

Meanwhile on Table 2, Serbia’ Aleksa Pecelj reached his first Matchroom Major quarter-final since the 2022 UK Open Pool Championship. Having shown his relief yesterday from battling through the loser’s qualification, he truly looked in his element on the big stage, running a six-pack on the way to a 10-1 thrashing of legendary veteran Ralf Souquet.

Hong Kong’s Robbie Capito and Poland’s Daniel Maciol went head-to-head for a chance of their first-ever Matchroom Major quarter-final. After a dominant start to proceedings, Capito held off a resurgent charge from the Pole to make the final eight.

Max Lechner, runner-up to Francisco Sanchez Ruiz in last year’s US Open final, completed the session’s play on Table 2 with a dominant 10-3 display over Portugal’s Miguel Silva.

FINAL 8 CONFIRMED

• Fedor Gorst, • Aloysius Yapp, • Aleksa Pecelj, • Jayson Shaw, • Ko Ping Chung, • Robbie Capito, • Wiktor Zielinski, • Max Lechner

16 REMAIN IN US OPEN AS DEFENDING CHAMPION CRASHES OUT

Defending US Open Pool champion Francisco Sanchez Ruiz has been knocked out of the tournament by Poland's Daniel Maciol at Harrah's Resort, Atlantic City - live on DAZN in the United States and broadcasters around the world.

Having edged past the Great Dane Mickey Krause thanks to a fluke at hill-hill, it looked like FSR's luck was in, however the World Champion and current WNT #1 faced a buoyant Maciol, who inflicted a gigantic performance for a 10-5 victory and a place in the last 16.

Five-time US Open champion and pre-tournament bookies favourite Shane Van Boening was beaten on the main table in front of an adoring home crowd, with Chinese Taipei's Chang Jung-Lin recording a 10-7 win over the South Dakota Kid.

That left the hopes of the US on the shoulders of Skyler Woodward, the sole remaining American in the competition. Having trailed the dangerous Japanese star Naoyuki Oi 6-3, the crowd roared as Sky overturned the scoreline for a 10-7 with six consecutive racks.

Ralf Souquet continued to roll back the years on the outside tables. Two-time World Champion Albin Ouschan fell victim to the Kaiser, a comprehensive 10-5 victory before the same scoreline followed against Chris Reinhold to see the veteran German into the last 16.

Ko Ping Chung was the first name through to the last 16 after beating Filipino Jeff De Luna 10-3 on the main table. Brother Ko Pin Yi, the current World Pool Masters winner, couldn't follow suit, heading home at the hands of Phuong Nam Pham in the last 64. The Vietnamese himself then beaten by Aleksa Pecelj, who matches his deepest run at a Matchroom major event following a last 16 run at the 2023 World Pool Championship.

European Open champion David Alcaide booked his place in Friday's action with a dominant 10-3 display over Peruvian Gerson Martinez Boza, with eyes fully focussed on the next automatic spot for Team Europe at the Mosconi Cup - which will be announced following the conclusion of the US Open World Championship.

Jayson Shaw, Joshua Filler, Fedor Gorst, Mario He, Wiktor Zielinski and Max Lechner will be following Alcaide's mission of the Mosconi, with all featuring in a strong European contingent battling out across the Atlantic.

FINAL 16 CONFIRMED

• Fedor Gorst, • Carlo Biado, • Mario He, • Aloysius Yapp, • Ralf Souquet, • Aleksa Pecelj, • Jayson Shaw, • Skyler Woodward, • Joshua Filler, • Ko Ping Chung, • Daniel Maciol, • Robbie Capito, • David Alcaide, • Wiktor Zielinski, • Max Lechner,• Miguel Silva

  Jayson Shaw And Earl Strickland Set To Renew Rivalry In Last 64 Blockbuster

JAYSON SHAW AND EARL STRICKLAND SET TO RENEW RIVALRY IN LAST 64 BLOCKBUSTER

Five-time US Open Champion Earl Strickland and 2017 winner Jayson Shaw will renew their rivalry in the last 64 of the US Open Pool Championship.

Eagle Eye Shaw, who previously lived with Strickland when first moving to the United States, had clashed with Strickland after a bust-up at a Straight Pool tournament in New York.

If the 2022 Mosconi Cup press conference is anything to go by, fans can expect fireworks as two of the game's most charismatic characters collide on the big stage - streamed live on DAZN in the United States.

Following defeat to veteran Ralf Souquet on Tuesday, the Pearl battled through Loser's Qualification with victories over Nguyen Thang and Toh Lian Han to book a spot in the last 64, proving his ability to maintain at the top 39 years after first US Open success.

Other Headlines

Five-time US Open Pool Champion Shane Van Boening avoided an early scare to reach the last 64 through the double-elimination format. Marco Teutscher, who was scarily involved in a high-speed car accident earlier in the week, brushed off the aches and pains to overcome SVB on the outside tables.

Teutscher has been awarded with an all-European affair with Ukraine's Vitaliy Patsura, whilst former World Pool Championship runner-up Chang Jung-Lin has the unenviable task of facing Van Boening in-front of an adoring home crowd.

Defending champion Francisco Sanchez Ruiz defeated young-Dane Mickey Krause 9-2 in Winners' Qualification - a fixture set to be repeated in Thursday's schedule.

With a wide-range of European's vying to secure the next automatic spot in the Mosconi Cup, attention will be Niels Feijen and Mario He who will battle out for a spot in the last 32. 'The Panda' He, currently #4 in the World Nineball Tour Rankings, is yet to feature at the trans-atlantic feature event and can put his name firmly into contention with a deep run in Atlantic City.

In the final match of Tuesday's play, Tyler Styer avoided a late comeback from former European Open semi-finalist Jose Alberto Delgado to hold on for a 9-7 victory on the tv table. Team USA's Mosconi Cup hopeful will face Sanjin Pehlivanovic in the last 64 - the player to knock him into the loser's bracket - in a fascinating rematch.

STRICKLAND & SOUQUET DELIGHT PACKED AMERICAN CROWD

Ralf Souquet and Earl Strickland rolled back the years to produce a hill-hill classic at the US Open Pool Championship - live on the main streaming table on DAZN.

'The Kaiser' Souquet ran a five-rack lead on 'the Pearl' to assert dominance early in the tie - a display of the form showcased at each Matchroom event so far in 2023. Trading blows in the rounds to follow, a packed crowd around table one were treated to a vintage Earl Strickland performance, who came back to ultimately force a deciding rack with a brilliant 2-9 combo.

Six-time World Pool Master Souquet has reached Winners' Qualification at every Matchroom Major so far this campaign, and kept tradition with victory over five-time US Open champion Strickland in a brilliant contest.

With double-elimination in effect in Atlantic City, Strickland's victory over Leo C. Ott sees him return to the table on Wednesday in a quest to reach the single-elimination knockouts.

European Open runner-up Anton Raga arrived in New Jersey as one of the tournament favourites after a remarkable run in Fulda, Germany. Spaniard Manuel Montejo Fernández, previously unranked on the World Nineball Tour rankings, stunned the Filipino star in-front of the on-watching WNT ranked No.1 and defending US Open champion Francisco Sanchez Ruiz.

Skyler Woodward - showcasing his all-new Cuetec AVID Proof Series of cues - was a comfortable 9-2 victor over both American opponents in Charles Carlisle and Robert Czupryniak. Alex Pagulayan awaits in the third round.

Fresh from hosting the CueLee's Connecticut 9-ball Open - the latest WNT Ranking Event - Eagle Eye Jayson Shaw's full attention turned to the US Open Pool Championship with comfortable wins in both matches.

Darren Appleton and Niels Feijen continued the trend of strong veteran performances to seal their spots in the next round - setting up a mouthwatering clash against one another.

On the outer tables as play wrapped up, drama ensued in the all-American clash between Scott Frost and Hunter Lombardo. At hill-hill, Lombardo accused Frost of touching the 6-ball with his shirt. Eventually with ball-in-hand, Lombardo ran out to win 9-8.

SANCHEZ RUIZ’S TITLE DEFENCE BEGINS IN ATLANTIC CITY

WNT Ranked No.1, World Pool champion and defending US Open holder Francisco Sanchez Ruiz overcame both opponents on day one in Atlantic City – live on DAZN to fans in the United States.

The Spaniard, who overcame a bout of Kidney Stones ahead of the trip to the United States, showed no sign of ring rust with an impressive 9-1 display against Jon Weber to open the day on the streaming table.

Max Watanbe awaited in the next round, but he followed fellow-countryman in falling victim to the Spanish superstar – a 9-2 win for El Ferrari which saw him through to Winners’ Qual.

European hopefuls followed FSR into the winners’ bracket, with Polish trio Konrad Juszczyszyn, Wojciech Szewczyk and Mieszko Fortunski booking their place in Wednesday’s action.

Cuelees Connecticut 9-ball Open winner Moritz Neuhausen continued his form in the States – after being taken to the limit by Jesse Engel hill-hill on the streaming table.

Tyler Styer will be targeting a deep run this week in hopes of securing the next automatic Mosconi Cup place for Team USA – which will be announced following the results of the US Open Pool Championship. Finishing with a Golden Break against Vietnam’s Luong Duc Thien, a tasty encounter with Sanjin Pehlivanovic awaits.

2002 US Open champion Corey Deuel delighted American hearts on the main table with a phenomenal 9-6 victory over Sharks International Open champion Ko Ping Chung.
