WPA President Anderson issues clarification on prize money controversy

1

World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) President Ian Anderson has clarified that they did not receive sanction fees which were deducted from players’ winnings during the 2015 World 10-Ball Championships held in General Santos City. “My understanding is that players were paid their prize money less five percent. This didn’t apply to the player groups earning $300 or $700, just to the ones above that. If this is correct, then a “sanction fee” of $8,400 has been taken out of the prize fund. I can assure everyone that the WPA certainly did not receive any part of this money,” said Anderson in a statement posted on billiards website AzBilliards.com.

    I find the recent mpcupgen 2015 international open live streamina very lousy because they could not employ even some novice announcers even on the last day especially on the main table.

    They could not even flash on the live screen the bracket matches even only for the last 64 to show results and updated running scores.

    Matches should indicate on the screen the length of the race and if alternate break then naturally winner of the lag placed on the left side of the screen breaking on odd-numbered games.
