First on the list is the 2011 World Pool Masters, which will kick off the events on September 3-5 at the SM City North Edsa in Quezon City. Sixteen of the world's best cue artists will take part in the prestigious invitational tournament, including Filipino pool players Efren Bata" Reyes, Francisco “Django” Bustamante, Dennis Orcollo, and Lee Vann Corteza.
For those not in the know, Orcollo, aka Robocop, is the defending champion. He will be seeing competition in the opener of the $66,000 event – battling it out against Tony Drago of Malta (2003 World Pool Masters champion). Bustamante takes on Canada’s Jason Klatt, as Corteza and Reyes clash with the Netherlands’ Huidji See and England’s Darren Appleton, respectively. The World Pool Masters will have a race-to-8, winner’s break format. All matches will be aired live on Solar Sports: September 3-4 at 12 noon to 10 PM, and September 5 at 3 PM to 10 PM. Solar Sports is on Sky Cable Channel 70, Destiny Channel 35, and Cablelink Channel 31.
The third, but definitely not the least competition on schedule for September 2011 is the 11th Predator International 10-Ball Championship (September 14-18). Reyes, aka The Magician, is all set to defend his title against 95 hopefuls from 30 different countries. The competition will be held at the Robinson's Galleria.
