On behalf of the Atlantic 9 Ball Tour and its founder Mr. Thomas “TJ” Martin, I’m pleased to announce the details of the 1st ever East Coast Canadian 9 Ball Open to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from November 7th to 13th of 2017. The Atlantic 9 Ball Tour is in its second season and has arguably been one of the most successful tours in Canada thus far. Due to this fact, Mr. Martin decided to come up with this special event to give something back to the local players who have given their unconditional support to this tour.
 
This event will have a total of $35,000 added! There will be $25,000 added to the main tournament and $10,000 added to the 3 separate Second Chance events. There will be $3,500 added to the “A” player Second Chance event, $3,500 added to the “B” player Second Chance event and $3000 added to the “C” player Second chance event. There will be a $40 entry fee for all Second Chance events.
 
The field has been set to 256 players and as of 7 December 2016 there are already 160 spots paid for by Atlantic Canadian players and 10 from players outside of the area. To have 170 spots already paid for this far in advance is a huge feat in itself. Some of the top professionals already confirmed are Shane Van Boening, Rodney Morris, John Morra, Corey Deuel, Oscar Dominguez and Mike Dechaine. There are only 86 spots remaining and I can almost guarantee that the field will be full well in advance. If you want to participate in this event contact Mr. Martin as soon as possible.
 
To guarantee your spot please email your payment to: eccopayment@atlantic9balltour.com
 
The format is a double knockout event, alternate break with a race to 11 on both sides and the final will be one race to 17.  
Entry fees are staggered at $500 for a “Pro” player, $350 for an "A" player, $250 for a "B" player and $150 for a “C” player. The different player classes will be determined by our tournament director, Mr. Steve Cooper. There will be a dress code in effect for the entire event consisting of dress shoes, dress pants, a collared shirt and no hats.
 
The host hotel for this event is the Atlantica Hotel Halifax. There are only 100 rooms available for this event. Mention “East Coast Canadian 9 Ball Open” to receive the special rate of $105 per night based on single or double occupancy.
