As to matching up and just gambling for the cash, I think lots of players would like to put up money with several others to play a tournament format, if someone would organize it for them.

Tournaments that are not specifically organized to have an elite-player-only field will have about half the field putting up entry fees by "can't win" players... that should make it juicy enough for the other half.

I'm confused by the idea that room owners "owe" the players more than the time and resources for promoting/organizing and the free table time to play it.
Arent room owners running the risk of losing their business and liquor license under vice and gambling laws if big games happen on their premises? I am not familiar with rural and suburban areas but Ive seen rooms in Los Angeles get raided by vice squads for excessive gambling.
Big $ tournaments seem to be able to get around this issue. The room owner can provide a safe and legitimate arena. More pool fans can get access. Agreements to stream the match is more logical. The room owner already makes a great contribution.
Thanks Ray.

Why cut out the stakehorse/superfan??? The bigger entry fees are a win win for everyone. The stakehorses get to take a shot at some decent money with their horse and the horses get to run. win. We get great matches to sweat and learn from. win. The pool rooms have lots of fans coming in to sweat the big action. win. The sponsors get a chance to be involved with top action. win.

What's not to like?? How about an open event on the side for cheap entry?? Done.

All we need is more added money. It's coming too.

These big entry events are very exciting and have generated a lot of interest.

They will keep happening. There's more action for top players than there has been in a while. We need to keep looking for ways to create opportunities for the top guys.

I think someone might just be on to something here!

What a great first round match up! One of these two will go to the loser's side early. Did Frost win it?
