CSI Invitational 10-Ball & 8-Ball Championships

CueSports International (CSI) is proud to announce the inaugural CSI Invitational 10-Ball and CSI Invitational 8-Ball Championships. These exclusive events will take place July 18-25, 2014 during the BCAPL & USAPL National Championships at the beautiful Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.  
Each event will be $16,000 added ($32,000 total) and feature 16 of the world’s best players to compete in a round robin format (four groups of four).   Each group will consist of a North American, European, Filipino, and Asian player with the top finisher from each group advancing to a single elimination bracket.  In each event, every player will receive prize money with first place winning $8,000.
The equipment used for the event will be 9’ Diamond Pro tables, Simonis 860 Cloth, Cyclop balls, and the Measle Cue Ball. 
This will also be a great opportunity for amateurs and fans to meet and interact with the pros as each of the 16 players will devote at least one hour per day giving group lessons, demonstrations, signing autographs, etc. at no charge.
CSI has already begun sending invitations to players selected not only for their proven skills and accomplishments, but also for the respect and dignity they display as professional pool players.  Anyone requesting additional information can contact CSI at (702) 719-POOL (7665).
