Default Turnout for US Open 1 Pocket

Do you think it will be a strong field? Just got done looking at turnout for SBE 1 Pocket and it seems like mostly regional players. The 4 marquis names were Appleton, Orcullo, Kiamco, and Thorpe. I'm sure they are expecting players to travel from SBE to Us Open 1 Pocket, but it doesn't seem like many "name" players traveled to SBE.

On a side note many "name" players in the SBE 9 ball event. Also read that if a player is playing in more than one event and their is a scheduling conflict the player must choose one or the other. Maybe that kept some players from entering 1 pocket event.

No matter what I will be there supporting. Anybody planning on going?

I don't know about the SBE, but I'm hoping the U.S. Open 1P will get a full and strong field. The event was slightly late in announcement for this year, but many of us had prevailed upon Mark to hold one, so I'm really hoping that it will be a success, and that it'll continue on into the future.

I thought there was no One Pocket tournament this year?
After I read your post I did a search for {2016 US Open 1 Pocket, went to a site that said it was held in Feb in Windsor Locks Connecticut, then I typed in US Open 1 Pocket and it said Reno Nevada but when I went to that site it had no 1 pocket info , just advertising the straight pool. Now I just went back to my original search and I see the Henderson Nevada ad above the others , pretty confusing, it could be me , but if I was spending money to put on a tournament , I wouldn't want there to be any question as to when and where it was.
Just went back again and it says March 7th Henderson Nevada and I thought crap , that's not giving me much time to get ready.
Then I look at the flyer and find out March 7th was the announcement date from the business site in Nevada?????
The tournament is in April in Windsor Locks Conn.
Is anybody besides me confused by all this?

Yes it may have been announced a little late this year but at least it is happening which I am very happy about! I am not blaming this on when it was announced but if I would have had more advanced notice or had better planning skills myself I would have surely attended, donated $350 and see if I could have made any of these champions sweat a little

Not only will I be getting a room next year at the derby to "do it right" but also hope to attend the US Open One Pocket tourney in 2017 as well.

Here's to hoping its a great event this year, I am looking forward to hearing all about it!

Glad it is being held. The complaints I heard were the tables the event are being played on are not Diamonds and not all the same, Gold Crowns with green cloth or something. Perhaps someone can give information on what tables this event will be played on and will it be streamed?

I've only been to that room once or twice and not recently -- but I will be going soon!! Their website shows 11 Gold Crowns and two Anniversary tables in a separate room:
