The United States Billiard Association presents: “Gabriel’s 3-Cushion Tour Events” #1

To kick-off 2017 with something special. Professor Q Ball’s, Paul Frankel, the USBA’s current president, Mazin Shooni, and its board members have arranged a double-header billiards competition, to be hosted at The Casino Del Sol resort in Tucson, Arizona. The USBA/Gabriel’s Tour Event shall be a six-day affair for a few competitors who were lucky enough to secure positions in both, the 42 player ‘B’ tournament on January 16th and in the 42 player ‘Open’ tournament on Jan 19th. Somewhat stunning news also was that, for a first-time, ‘prestigious’ event at a premier venue like Casino Del Sol, 3-cushion players all over the country responded with entry forms that filled both events within four weeks of the official announcement in September, 2016.

Original quote from the website: “The Gabriels USBA Tour Event at Casino Del Sol in Tucson Arizona (January 16-21) has reached its maximum entrants! Both the “A” event and the “B” event are full. If you’re still considering playing contact Mazin Shooni at (248) 910-4466 or Paul Frankel (901) 210-7251 in the event a cancellation opens a last minute position. The official list of players for both the A and B events follows.”
