Partnership Comes to Fruition Between Tony Crosby and K.F. Cues

Tony Crosby

K.F. Cues (Kao Fa Cues) has been a supporter of the billiard industry for many years now and as of late, a more recent sponsor to two of the top professional players in the United States, Ga Young Kim and Tony Crosby.  The cue maker/manufacturer has decided to take that sponsorship one step further in the way of teaming up with Tony Crosby as lead sponsor of his upcoming tour – the KF Cues 9-Ball Tour.

K.F. Cues defines themselves as the leading professional in delivering exquisite pool cues and accessories. The company provides customers with not just sheer comfort, but stability and precision, along with excellent customer service. With forty years of cue making experience, K.F. Cues has extensive knowledge and offers absolute professionalism in what pool players need.  As if the company being one of only a few ICA certified cue manufacturers was not enough of a credential to boast, support continues to grow via the professional pool scene with names such as Fong-Pang Chao, Tony Crosby, Ga Young Kim, and Xiao-Ting Pan proving its reputation in the billiards industry.

Crosby, along with K.F. Cues, will kick off their first season together this September 27th-28th at TJ's Billiards in New Port Richey, Florida, with its $1600 total added events.  The tour will offer $1000 added open nine-ball events on Saturday and Sunday; and $600 added amateur events Sunday only.  Entries will vary for the two divisions:  the main event will run $65 which includes a $10 green fee and $10 registration fee; while the amateur field will be $50 with the same green fee/registration fee included.  Juniors will play for $15, amateur ladies receive half-off entries, plus a discount will be received by those that play both divisions.  Prizes will be provided to top juniors and top women players, along with Player of the Year honors.

Specifics for each are as follows ($20 tour card required for participation):

Open Events:
Races to 9W/9L
Double Elimination
Winner Breaks (rack your own)
Standardized World Pool Rules

Amateur Events:
Races to 7W/5L
Double Elimination
Top Level Amateurs Will Be Handicapped*
*Note: Top Level Amateur players will give a two rack start (handicap) to lower speed up-and-coming amateur players – this has been setup in this manner to avoid excluding higher speed amateur players who have not yet reached professional level from competing in tour events

The tour will primarily focus on the Tampa Bay area of the state, with approximately eleven scheduled events and a season finale to cap the season off.  The tour has already received rave reviews from many and has acquired support from top names in the billiard industry including Stroke It Wear, Sniper Cues, Tiger Products, Axiom Pool Tables, Vigor Shafts, Extreme Focus Vitamin Water,, Billiard Scoop, Billiards Digest, and Inside Pool Magazine.

“In the last few years, Florida has grown to become a pool mecca to many of the best pool players in the world whether they be residents or by simply traveling through the area to attend some of the larger events that take place in the region. The K.F. Cues 9-Ball Tour has already sparked major interest with many pool rooms and players from outside of the state with interest in not only attending, but hosting events. I believe the tour will be a success and is just what Florida needs at this time.  I have worked with K.F. Cues for over a year now and stand by the products they produce, the partnership is a fantastic opportunity for both of us as K.F. Cues makes some of the best hitting cues on the market today and the tour is an excellent way to show off and promote their products here in the US.” - Tour Director, Tony Crosby
