“We've created this one-week VIP opportunity for our loyal fans simply because they deserve it,” said Barry Behrman, U.S. Open 9-Ball promoter. “Our VIP's have been a huge part of the success of the U. S. Open 9-Ball over the past 31 years. Without their loyal support, we would be just another pool tournament.”
