[Taken from the official USSA website] The United States National Snooker Championship is the USSA's premier annual snooker tournament, which brings together all the top snooker players from around the United States to compete for the coveted title of National Champion. A player must meet the eligibility criteria in order to participate, namely being either a "citizen" of the United States, or a "legal resident" of the United States who has not represented any other nation in an International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF) recognized Championship in the previous three years (see IBSF Championship Conditions ruling 2.4 on the IBSF website). The winner and runner-up are automatically selected to represent the United States in the following IBSF World Snooker Championships. Should any or both players be unavailable to participate, the USSA will select the next best finishing available player or players. The USSA will announce the date for the next Championship several months in advance, and produce an Entry Form and Championship Conditions document which will be sent out to interested participants. The first Championship back in 1991 was played at Preacher's Pool & Billiards in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, and since it has also been played at Cue 'N' You Billiards (which was the former On Cue Billiards) in Grayslake, Illinois, the former Cue T's Snooker Club in Monterey Park, California, the New York Athletic Club and the Prince Snooker Club in New York City.
