US Open waits for Isabel

Day four at the 28th Annual US Open 9-Ball Championship is underway with no matches scheduled. Instead, the players are waiting out the day as Hurricane Isabel brings 75-80 MPH winds and rain to the area.

The tournament is expected to resume on Friday morning with 104 players still competing for the title.

The winners side is full of marquee matches including:
Niels Feijen vs Corey Deuel
Danny Hewitt vs Johnny Archer
Mike Davis vs Jose Parica
George San Souci vs Scott Frost
Francisco Bustamante vs Santos Sambajon
Earl Strickland vs Fabio Petroni
Luc Salvas vs Nick Varner
John Schmidt vs Jeremy Jones

Brackets are online and we have posted the gallery from the players meeting as well as a gallery from the tournament itself. Look for more pictures to be added to the gallery later on Thursday.
