Challenge goes out to find county’s best pool players

ENCINITAS — Pacific Q Billiards & Brew, at 1454 Encinitas Blvd., is hosting a Challenge Event to find the best player in North County.

The first phase will cost $25 and will allow entrants to play all other players 10-ball in a race to five, without paying for additional pool time.

The matches will be held on a mutually agreed day and time at Pacific Q Billiards & Brew. There will be separate events for males and females. After all players have played every other player, the win/lose record will be calculated and determine the top 10 players.

All 10 men and all 10 women will have their photo and name placed on the leader board.

The top five players will get discounts on all open play, food, and drink as long as they remain on the leader board. First place will get a 20-percent discount. Second through fifth place will get 15 percent, 10 percent, 8 percent and 6 percent respectfully.

The second phase of the tournament will allow players not on the leader board, to challenge (via director) the player in the 10th position.

Once on the leader board, you can challenge (via director) the next higher position. All challenge matches in Phase Two will be 10-ball, race to 7, and the loser will pay for pool time for both players. The matches will also be held on a mutually agreed day and time at Pacific Q Billiards & Brew.

Signups will continue until July 3.  Matches are starting now for those who have already registered. For more details, contact Paul at Pacific Q in person or via email at [email protected]. Detailed event rules and 10-ball rules will be provide when requested.
