How many events will be held each Season?
You Must Play in a Minimum of 7 Events to Qualify for The Year End Event, and Finish in the Top 32. Our goal is to hold 7-11 events per Calendar Year. Every player receives points based on their finishing position in each Tour Event. The higher you finish the more points you receive.
When does The Black Cat Pool Tour Season begin and end?
Each New Season begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 of each year.
Are Black Cat Pool Tour matches handicapped?
Yes & No. We are currently developing both an Open Non Handicapped and a BCD Handicapped Format which will allow our Top Level Players to compete separately from our Mid-Level Aspiring Players. We believe that this will create a Level of Events that will prove to be both competitive and rewarding to a wider range of players. Which will create larger turnouts for all events, equaling higher prize purses and happier players?
How are players ranked to determine their entry fee, and handicap?
The Tournament Director will rank a player based on personal knowledge of their skill level or the opinion of fellow players. If the player is completely unknown, the Tournament Director will explain the rankings to the player and trust that he or she will be honest. After all, if the player is dishonest, it will not affect the outcome of any match - only what the person paid to play (which will be quickly adjusted for subsequent events). In our BCD Format any outright deliberate attempt to play at a Handicap lower than ability will result in forfeiture of entry fees and any monies that would have been awarded. Additionally, said player would be disqualified for current event, multiple infractions would warrant suspension or, banishment from Black Cat Pool Tour.
What are the future plans for Black Cat Pool Tour?
Expansion!!! Pool Tours are in a perpetual circle that always comes back to the same point: players want larger payouts (which can only come with larger sponsorships) sponsors want larger turnouts (which typically come with larger payouts). We believe that by holding highly organized professional quality events that players genuinely enjoy will cause them to continue to come and the turnouts will continually get larger. When this happens, sponsors will line up and get behind us, resulting in larger payouts and larger turnouts.
