[Taken from the official U.S. Open website] The U.S.Open is The Longest Run and Most Prestigious 9-Ball Event in the world. Barry Behrman's dream to take 9-Ball, Pool and Billiards to a new level still today becomes a reality as the field stands strong from around the world. Never could have imagined it lasting 35 years and going. Started in 1976 and Held at Q-Master Billiards in Norfolk VA. Behrman had 15 Players and was praying for a “full field" at that time of 16 and got it at the last moment. In 2019, Matchroom Multi Sport obtained the rights to the US Open 9-Ball Championship and moved the event to Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2021, it was moved to Atlantic City, where it is still being held as of 2022. Fans from across the globe attend and mark their calendars year after year to get their VIP seats. The U.S.Open seats approximately 1000. The Fans at the U.S.Open are the most knowledgeable and loyal. Many, many fans have been coming for 20+ years. The oldest pool player to have ever won the US Open Nine-ball Championship is Mike Lebron, 54 years old. The youngest pool player to have ever won the US Open Nine-Ball Championship was Mike Sigel, 21 years old in 1976. The U.S.Open has always been open to all men. Any player wishing to put up his entry is entitled to play. This tradition will stay the same. Like Augusta National, “a Tradition Like No Other”.
