Member’s Tournament

Annual Competition

Taken at the 4th annual Member Tourney at Bluegrass Billiards in Philadelphia, PA

See below for important info regarding this year’s MOT!

2016 marked the first year of our annual “Member’s Only Tournament”. To be specific it should be called the verified Member’s Only Tournament since only verified members qualify and can participate. What is a verified member and how do you become one? Well, it’s quite easy. You just have to be a real person! A ‘Verified Member’ is a member who is not just an avatar behind a keyboard, but a real live human with a real face and a real name.

So in other words, to become verified, all you have to do is have another verified member who knows you, vouch for you. If you do not know any of our verified members, simply introduce yourself to any one of us. You will always find at least a few members at all of the one pocket tournaments all over the country and probably a number of us at the Derby City Classic and/or US Open One Pocket event every year.

Once you become a verified member, we just ask that you participate! Join in on a discussion! Post a topic of your own! Get involved! Help us grow this game!

Tournament Eligibility Requirements

  • Verified Member status

2020 Members Tournament

As the administrator of onepocket.org I see no choice but to officially postpone our MOT indefinitely, for the health and welfare of our members, and not reschedule until we are out the other side of this pandemic.

As I said before, anyone who wants a refund of their entry fund can just ask for it. chicagomike is handling the entry fees and can issue your refund. You can send him a message directly, and help him out with your how you paid so he can get your money back to you the same way you sent it in. Or you can leave your name and money on the list for such time that we are able to reschedule our MOT. That is up to each of you.

Sorry folks but we really don’t have any choice.

Everyone take care!!
