IPT Announces Pro-Am

(Chicago, IL)  The International Pool Tour announces the IPT Pro-Am Tournament. Sixteen of the best players in the world will compete with an open field of players in a new and unique format November 8-9, 2008.
The Pro-Am Tournament is open to any competitor who places in the top six of a qualification tournament. There are sixteen qualifier events- each corresponds with a top professional player. The top six finishers in each qualifier get teamed up with their pro for the main event. Although players compete as individuals, if they or anyone on their team wins the main event, they each win $6,000; the actual individual winner of the tournament wins $8,000. The total prize purse is $50,000.
Qualification events will be held throughout Chicagoland starting September 13th. The full schedule of qualification events is available online at www.internationalpooltour.com. Entry fees are $85 in person, which includes a $5 greens fee for the host room. Members of the military, female players, children, anyone presenting their league membership card, or any online entrants pay only $75.
Extensive online coverage, including match stats, pictures, and streaming video of the main event, will be available at www.internationalpooltour.com.
