CSI Now Accepts Online Registration for Independent Events

CueSports International (CSI) announces players are now able to register online for all upcoming independent events via the CueSports Tournament System (CTS) website (www.ctsondemand.com). The online registration section of CTS went live Friday, January 7th.

Online registration is now available for the following events:

·         The 15th Jay Swanson Memorial 9-Ball Tournament
·         The 18th U.S. Bar Table Championships

Players who register must pay their online entries by credit card using a Visa or Mastercard. All players will be sent an auto-generated email confirmation for each event they register for.

The Jay Swanson Memorial is going into its 15th year. The $3000 guaranteed / $4000 with a full field added event is scheduled February 12-13, 2011. The tournament will be held for the first time at Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California. The event will also be live streamed via The Action Report (TAR). In the previous two years the 192 player field filled with a small wait list.

One of the largest and most revered bar table events, The U.S. Bar Table Championships, with $25,250 added, is held every year at the Terrible's Sands Casino Hotel in Reno, Nevada. Scheduled February 21-27th, the tournament has the following divisions: Men's /Open 8-ball, 9-ball, and 10-ball and Women's 8-ball, 9-ball and 10-ball. Players who compete in all three of either the men's / open or women's divisions are eligible for “All Around” bonuses. While there is no field limit, in 2010 slightly over 500 players traveled to Reno to compete. This event is also known for the extremely low room block rates at the host hotel.

Additional events will be added to the CTS online registration page soon. Starting the end of January online registration will be available for all divisions of the BCAPL National 8-Ball and BCAPL National 9-Ball Championships (May 11-22, 2011, Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas).

However, in addition to registering online, players still have the option to either mail or fax their entries for all CSI tournaments and events. Only one form of registration should be used in order to avoid duplication.

CSI launched its custom designed CueSports Tournament System (CTS) in 2010. The CTS has a highly robust online bracket system which allows for both individual player and team searches, cross event archives, and offers detailed information about matches, such as table assignments, times, history of a player's event matches, results and payouts just to name a few. Additionally, the CTS site has the added functionality of tournament live scoring, which CSI rolled out in the 2010 U.S. Open 10-Ball event. Now going into 2011, the online registration function has been added making the CTS site revolutionary in the industry for its cross function capabilities.
