THE INTERNATIONAL 9-BALL OPEN
Accu-Stats will carry on the tradition of a major 9-Ball event in the Norfolk, Virginia area by producing The International 9-Ball Open.  This 128-player event will guarantee $50,000 added to the prize fund and a $40,000 first prize showcased at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel in Norfolk, Virginia October 21-27, 2018.
The original name of this event, The U.S. International 9-Ball Open was modified to remove the U.S. from the title avoiding any confusion with the Matchroom event.
