The George Fels Memorial Straight Pool Challenge at Derby City

This event will be taking place January 21, 2018, to January 24, 2018. The qualifying attempts will take place Sunday through Wednesday. Open from 8:00 a.m. to Midnight on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Open until 2:00 a.m the last qualifying night of Wednesday.

Rules

For every $100 paid in, the player gets 12 chances. There is no limit to the number of times they can enter. They rack 14 balls and take the 15th ball in hand and cue ball in hand and see how many balls they can run. The three high runs for each of the first 4 days are paid $300, $200, and $100 respectively. The high run of the Qualifying stage gets an additional $1,000.00. There will be an additional prize of $1,000.00 for the highest run during the qualifying stage that surpasses Jayson Shaw’s 227.

The players with the top eight runs of the four days then have a single elimination tournament starting on Thursday. Schedule determined by availability of players. 

There will be $15,000.00 added this year—the most ever. We will be using 4 tables for the qualifying stage which should greatly diminish the time the players have to wait for an open table. We are expecting record payouts.

The high runs have been as follows:

2006 High Run: 139 by Danny Harriman;
2007 High Run: 160 by Mika Immonen
2008 High Run: 147 by Mika Immonen;
2009 High Run: 154 by John Schmidt
2010 High Run: 171 by John Schmidt;
2011 High Run: 183 by Darren Appleton
2012 High Run: 156 by Mika Immonen
2013 High Run: 117 (10’) Stuart Pettman
2014 High Run: 178 by Ralf Souquet
2015 High Run: 227 by Jayson Shaw
2016 High Run: 215 by Lee Van Corteza
2017 High Run: 225 by Chris Melling

The players with the top eight runs of the four days then have a single elimination tournament. We will be filming all of the attempts and all of the matches. There is still a chance that the qualifiers will be live streamed, too. I will update this thread once that is confirmed. Usually, the semis and finals are filmed by Accu-Stats, if they can be scheduled properly. A lot depends upon who our finalists are and where they are in the 9 ball event.

The high runs have been as follows:

2006 High Run: 139 by Danny Harriman;
2007 High Run: 160 by Mika Immonen
